Oil on Canvas, "Greenwich Village: 6th Avenue",  Martin Hardy. Framed, 27" x 33": Right down the block from where this was painted is the famous Balducci's Market.  The castle-like building that dominates the center was a women's' prison, in the early 1900's; women were said to have talked to their lovers, from the balcony on the spire, on the street below.  Today, it is a branch of the library system.  In the background can be seen the Shearson Building, looming in the distance, a full two miles south at Battery Park City.  This stunning piece of New York City Greenwich Village architecture and, indeed, the spirit of the Village are captured perfectly by the artist.

Many people do not know the subtle differences between the Amish and the Mennonites, sects among the Pennsylvania Dutch.  The Amish are very strict, they do not have electricity or cars, while the Mennonites can use these modern conveniences.  A major difference between the two sects is in the hand-stitched quilts that they produce.  The Amish use only darker colors, and the materials are all solids: there are no patterns.  Our first quilt offering is Mennonite from Lancaster County.  The pattern is the Pineapple, the folk symbol of welcome.  The quilt measures 93" by 112",  large enough for a queen size bed.  It is composed of hundreds of hand-stitched pieces of material about an inch wide.   It is an exquisite example of that pattern with the warmth of the border filled with the inviting bright color of its center.  It is a true work of art and craftsmanship.   Some close ups and full shots are shown, above.
