The Story Behind The Picture
Curated by Derek Kan
The show will feature the work of two Morgan County artists; Jim Hoyt, from Great Cacapon, shows us various native dwellings found in the National Parks and Derek Kan, also of Great Cacapon, explores his wanderlust as well as the movements of people as they go about their everyday lives. Jim Schlett, from Reston, VA, places his emphasis on the use of light in exploring the beauty of the National Parks. Arlington VA artist Lasi Gunaratna creates images driven by his memories of favorite places. Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, Ricky Ho, shares his view of the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Learning to Lucet
Instructor – Abby Chapple
A Lucet…looking somewhat like a forked tongue, is a wooden two-pronged tool on which you make a square braid. In England it is called a knitting fork. Learn the technique and you can make all sorts of things from shoe laces and lanyards to a headband or hat! In this class you will learn a basic stitch or two and a three strand two color version to turn into a woven bracelet to take home with you. Fee: $35, $30 MAC members. Class size is limited. If you would like to purchase a Lucet to continue your skills at home, please add the cost to your registration fee: $5.00 for a plain, but functional, model or $10 for a carved model. Register here.
