      George Sotter: Light & Shadow
    • Saturday, October 21, 2017
    • George Sotter (1879-1953), an artist strongly identified with Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is best known for his magical winter nocturnes, scenes made even more enchanting by the blanket of snow that is a recurring motif in his work. "Light and Shadow" will present the various other types of landscape he produced throughout his career, and will introduce his work as a stained-glass artist, and examine the artistic exchange between the media in which he worked.

      Caryn Lin, Electric Violinist
    • Sunday, October 22, 2017
    • A classically trained violinist who went on to become an electric violin and education innovator, Caryl Lin plays everything from Bach to rock. A violinist since age 9, Caryn Lin's early studies in classical music have left a distinct mark on her style. She has performed in numerous folk venues - she was once nominated as the best Philly folk act - and is also a veteran of rock and country bands. She's even been billed as New Age or jazz. After years of experimenting with sound, Caryn puts on a live show that is truly unique. Sometimes as a solo artist and sometimes with a backing band, she plays her 4-, 5- and 6-string electric violins and uses a jam man to make short on-the-spot recordings of her voice, percussion instruments and other sounds. As she plays the violin, the recorded snippets play back in a continuous loop adding layer upon layer of sound over deceptively simple melodies. The result is music that is both otherworldly and totally catchy. in recent years she has become a strong lyricist, sometimes adding her voice to the mix.
