Workers from Doug's Tree Service spent most of the day today cutting down two trees at Mount Bethel Cemetery on Locust Street. One tree was along Locust Street - the other on the cemetery grounds. A half-hour afternoon deluge almost put the damper on the project, but several workers muscled through the rain and succeeded in felling the trees.
A few small repairs
The rain begins, with what appears to be St. Elmo's Fire emanating from the tip of the crane.
August has been a record month by itself: Currently there have been 22 days with high temperatures in the 90s - which ties the record from 1980. If we make it to 90° this Wednesday afternoon (as we should), a new record will be set of 23 out of 31 days in August with highs at least 90°.
Three of these days were not just in the 90s, but in triple-digit territory. Averaging the month's temperatures together, it will end up as the warmest August on record.
Milt Friedly, Director/Curator for the Susquehanna Center for the Creative Arts will exhibit his sculpture at Keystone Art and Culture Center, 420 Pearl Street, Lancaster, PA. September 2 -28 and to be extended thru October, 2016.
Public Receptions are scheduled for September 2 and September 22 from 5-9 p.m.
Gallery hours outside the reception dates are by appointment.
Milt's sculptural works are crafted from traditional media, found objects and experimental media. His work investigates the dichotomy between nature and use of industrial materials and the effects consumption and time have on the human condition. Friedly makes personal and universal statements through use of common materials in uniquely crafted works of art. Some works are interactive, time based, which are completed by an audience. Some include live objects, water, sound and video.
New works include: "Ali - Move like a butterfly, Sting like a Bee"; "Corn - Chip"; "Breathe in the Conestoga"; "Displacement"; "Remove Ashes Daily" and others.
Special thanks to George Mummert, Director of Keystone for generously offering the space for this exhibition and to Martin's Potato Chips.
