The severity of the rain held out long enough last Friday for Kennett Square to welcome a bustling crowd to its’ Expanded Art Stroll. Congratulations to all the merchants, artists, organizations and volunteers for contributing to such a fun event. Special shout out to Casa Guanajuato for their phenomenal installation experience, “Journey to Mictlan” the sawdust carpet installations, the costumed characters, and the ambience at the Garage Community Youth Center attracted people in droves and transformed the space into a magical celebration for Dia de Muertos. Well done, Casa Guanajuato and volunteers!

If you missed it, last weekend the Delaware Contemporary unveiled a new exhibition by Linda Celestian and Linnea Tober entitled, “Flow”. Through digital photography, mixed media sculpture and painting, the two local artists explore the concept of space and movement in their respective works.  The exhibition has been curated by Morgan Hamilton and will run through January 9.

As one show closes, another opens. Check out Church Street Gallery tomorrow night for the opening reception of Elise Phillips: In The Open Air. Take in Phillips bucolic landscape paintings. The warm glow and familiar rolling hills of the region, elicit such a specific local appreciation for the fall season. Enjoy this exhibition through December 1st.
