Two Art Shows in Easton

The Elucidator is a free arts and lifestyle magazine published quarterly in Easton, Pa. Actually, "arts and lifestyle" is far too generic a term for this 'zine, which has a wonderfully eccentric, slightly liberal sensibility that mixes articles on the best (and worst) places to drink with features on bellydancing and bow hunting. That's right ... bow hunting.

It's usually crammed with ads as well, and two that caught my eye this month were for art exhibits in Easton. The first is "Night Shift: Elucidator Photographers Stay Up Late" at Project Blue at 134 N. Second Street, Easton, PA. It features classy, thoughtful black & white photos taken by The Ecludiator's photo staff. The show opens March 18 and runs through April 24; hours are 4-7 p.m., Saturdays 12-4 p.m., and First Sunday 12-5 p.m. (first Sunday being a monthly event in Easton in which many businesses in Easton open their doors for special events). You can contact the gallery at (unfortunately, they don't have a web site).

The other show that caught my eye was "Poetry in Motion" by Charles Klabunde, which is being held at "The Gallery and Studio of Charles Klabunde". His fine figure drawings, rendered in pencil, remind me of some of the work I've seen on Quent Cordiar's web site, and I'm always a sucker for well-drawn, Romantically-realistic portraits.

The gallery is located at 73 N. 2nd Street and the show runs April 30 through June 30. For more information, check out it's web site at
