Patrick Dougherty Nature Installation
Patrick Dougherty is a world-renowned sculptor who has spent the last 30+ years building monumental scale environmental works, which require saplings by the truckload and his sculptures can be seen from Scotland to Japan to Brussels, and all over the United States. In May 2021, Mr. Dougherty installed "The Old Home Place" with the help of volunteers and local collaborators such as AACPS.
The sculpture is open to the public to enjoy for the coming years! There are no tickets or registration required to visit the sculpture.

In Search of Meaning: Memory Becomes Us
March 8 - May 21, 2021
An exhibition illuminating the role memory plays in relation to who we are. Patricia Moss-Vreeland’s paintings, prints, artist books, poetry, and videos are metaphoric responses and reside in concert with the interlacing of science texts, connecting the personal to the universal.

Members, both within and outside the community, took part in modeling sessions with the artist. People from a broad range of age, ethnicity, religion, and background came forward to be painted.

Umbrella and Its Many Ways, Paintings by Betty Pethel
Umbrellas! One can hold them high or low and when we do, they become an expressive extension of a "happening." Umbrellas can offer protection, such as a foil against the sun, protect from the rain, make a fashion statement, and as we saw in Hong Kong (2019 protest), defensive protection against one's foe.
