Based on the works of Sir J. M. Barrie

Adapted for the stage by Patrick Flynn

Directed by Nick Olcott

Recommended for all ages

Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan. Or, at least, everyone thinks they do. But unless you have heard it from Tinker Bell’s point of view, you really have not heard it at all. A new twinkling light shines on all the characters you love including, Wendy, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, Smee, and the nefarious Hook from a feisty fairy’s point of view.

Oil painter Patrick Sieg and photographer Lisa Sieg often meld into one another, focusing a symbiotic lens on a specific scene, element, or feeling to portray how extraordinary nature is. Nature has incredible power to affect our attitudes, our lives, our perspectives. In our fast-paced world, awareness, observation and respect for the environment is needed now more than ever; a necessity for turbulent times and a restorative tonic for the soul. Log off, put down your phone, and step outside. Look up, look down, look all around, feel the air, notice the small stuff, breathe. Time out for your mind, body, and soul.Art Walk & Opening Reception: Friday, July 6, 6 to 8pmViewing Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 6pmLocation: Stone Tower Gallery Glen Echo Park 7300 MacArthur Blvd Glen Echo, MD 20812 [less-]

The experience of making art can have a profound effect on any artist, and can also support recovery and transitions along different life stages.  Theresa Reer and Jen Vaughn are Wounded Warriors and Veterans undergoing treatment as patients of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  The Walter Reed Society has a successful multi-year collaboration placing students in art glass activities at Glen Echo Park.Art Glass Center’s staff offer instruction in fused glass art to small groups of Wounded Warriors and Veterans, allowing them to develop their art skills as they readjust to civilian life. The experience involves creating designs and choosing colors; selecting, cutting and grinding fusible glass; and hand-crafting glass artworks for fusing in an instructor-operated kiln.  As student skills progress, instruction is given in forming more complex glass shapes for two-dimensional art pieces, and in creating three-dimensional glass art.Individual creativity is a key element of the class environment.  These artists will exhibit both glass works they have created through this program, as well as individual artwork created along their recovery journeys.

They win over audiences with relentless energy and enthusiasm, building an international fan base headlining shows and opening for the likes of Lake Street Dive, Buddy Guy, and Dustbowl Revival. We agree with the Cascade Blues Association that “The Rad Trads have the insouciant charm of the pre-invasion Beatles, if the Beatles had been led by Dr. John and sung about hungover mornings instead of Hard Days Nights.” [less-]

Based on the works of Sir J. M. Barrie

Adapted for the stage by Patrick Flynn

Directed by Nick Olcott

Recommended for all ages

Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan. Or, at least, everyone thinks they do. But unless you have heard it from Tinker Bell’s point of view, you really have not heard it at all. A new twinkling light shines on all the characters you love including, Wendy, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, Smee, and the nefarious Hook from a feisty fairy’s point of view.

Oil painter Patrick Sieg and photographer Lisa Sieg often meld into one another, focusing a symbiotic lens on a specific scene, element, or feeling to portray how extraordinary nature is. Nature has incredible power to affect our attitudes, our lives, our perspectives. In our fast-paced world, awareness, observation and respect for the environment is needed now more than ever; a necessity for turbulent times and a restorative tonic for the soul. Log off, put down your phone, and step outside. Look up, look down, look all around, feel the air, notice the small stuff, breathe. Time out for your mind, body, and soul.Art Walk & Opening Reception: Friday, July 6, 6 to 8pmViewing Hours: Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 6pmLocation: Stone Tower Gallery Glen Echo Park 7300 MacArthur Blvd Glen Echo, MD 20812 [less-]

The experience of making art can have a profound effect on any artist, and can also support recovery and transitions along different life stages.  Theresa Reer and Jen Vaughn are Wounded Warriors and Veterans undergoing treatment as patients of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  The Walter Reed Society has a successful multi-year collaboration placing students in art glass activities at Glen Echo Park.Art Glass Center’s staff offer instruction in fused glass art to small groups of Wounded Warriors and Veterans, allowing them to develop their art skills as they readjust to civilian life. The experience involves creating designs and choosing colors; selecting, cutting and grinding fusible glass; and hand-crafting glass artworks for fusing in an instructor-operated kiln.  As student skills progress, instruction is given in forming more complex glass shapes for two-dimensional art pieces, and in creating three-dimensional glass art.Individual creativity is a key element of the class environment.  These artists will exhibit both glass works they have created through this program, as well as individual artwork created along their recovery journeys.
