Hawk Mountain Sanctuary has selected recent Studio Art graduate Abigail Devizia as the recipient of their three month Artist in Residency.  To see Devizia's work visit:   

Kutztown University and Hawk Mountain have created an artist in residency program for KU alums and emeriti of any major. Hawk Mountain is the world's first refuge for birds of prey and a global center for raptor conservation. It is located along the Appalachian Trail in Kempton, Pa., approximately 15 minutes from Kutztown University.

Hawk Mountain will provide free lodging on the mountain for an artist to create artwork in any medium inspired by the sanctuary.

Save a tree by purchasing a Streak-Less Microfiber Cloth. The cloths are $5 each. Cash or Check (AFSCME Local 2234). If you didn't purchase one several years ago, you may want to try one out this time. I can attest to how great they are for cleaning glass, car windows and mirrors as well as numerous other items. You won't be disappointed with it. Please see the following members if you're interested: Chris Ferris,-BH 223, and Annette Christman,-SH 115.
