Cold January days are here, but the arts council had two fantastic events this weekend that can help you combat “cabin fever:”
The Pike Restaurant, 985 Baltimore Pike, Gettysburg, will offer a special Trivia Contest on Friday, January 9, from 6-8 p.m. to benefit the Adams County Arts Council. Draft a team of up to eight players or join a team that evening and test your general knowledge of subjects like pop culture, sports, history, movies, geography, music and literature. Cost to play is a $10 donation per person to the Arts Council. Each member of the winning team receives a $20 gift card from The Pike. For more information about the trivia contest or to reserve a table, contact the Pike at 717 334-9227. For more information about Arts Council classes, programs or membership, contact 717-334-5006, email@example.com, or visit adamsarts.org.
Eight accomplished artists, members of the Gettysburg or Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters groups, will be coming in out of the cold for a Plein Air Paint-In at the Center on Saturday, January 10. From 10 a.m. to 12 noon, you’re invited to see how these artists approach a plein air-type painting and watch as different interpretations of the same bouquet or still life emerge. The paintings, which may be purchased either framed or unframed, will go on sale from noon to 2 p.m.
Enjoy hot beef vegetable, carrot ginger or crab soup (eat-in or take-out) served up by Arts Council members. You may also choose to purchase soup in hand-carved stoneware bowls by potter Lori Nelson.
There is no admission charge for the event. The artists, all of whom are donating their sales to the Arts Council, include event organizer Barb Ebaugh, Cortez Lawrence, Paul J. Gallo, Claire Beadon Carnell, Larry Lerew, James Bricker, Kim Stone and Dianne Lorden.
Snow date for the Paint-In is Saturday, January 24.
