February 21, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Burlington County Lyceum of History and Natural Sciences
Presented by Jen Bulava. Discover an intriguing hidden world of glowing organisms found right here in Burlington County! Some objects, when subjected to ultraviolet radiation, will emit another type of light, with lower energy and longer wavelength in the visible spectrum. This phenomenon is referred to as ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence (UVIVF). To find out what fluoresces in our area, Jen started a series called “Life That Glows” where participants walk in the dark with special UV flashlights to find glowing life. This presentation displays the photographic observations from the past 2 years of those outings and summarizes preliminary findings of Jen’s research in this exciting new field, UVIVF.

Bill began making paper collages in his late teens. They are made from pictures and photographs found in various magazines, calendars and books. He arranges them to form another picture that flows into the next and never knows what the outcome will be. This simplistic approach has led him to make many complex pieces over the years and all are diverse. Bill enjoys piecing them together and the time and concentration involved. Gallery hours are Thursday - Saturday, 10 AM - 4 PM and Sunday, Noon - 4 PM
January 30, 2020 - March 15, 2020 @ Worker's House and Gallery
Come see an array of talented artist creations. Some of the works on display will include blankets, hats/scarves; lap robes, afghans, prayer shawls, chemo caps and assorted holiday favors for children. It’s an opportunity to highlight this craft and to help it flourish into the future by sharing skills across generations. The guild was founded in 1995 in Willingboro, New Jersey, the guild was created to share information, skills and patterns with all who were interested. In addition, it would provide a chance for relaxing with social interaction and was a good way to keep physically active both mind and body. Thousands of items, over the years, have been donated to people in need through various local/national organizations, charities and hospitals. Gallery hours are Thursday - Saturday, 10 AM - 4 PM and Sunday, Noon - 4 PM
