Featured Artist at Northampton Library: Sandy Askey-Adams

by Lisa DeAngelis

Northampton Township artist Sandy Askey-Adams’ home is an intimate, cozy gallery, walls covered with her paintings from floor to ceiling. It’s just one of the ways that Sandy truly lives her art. A kind of deep and soulful serenity emanates from her landscapes in a way that invites the visitor to linger.

Sandy says, “It is really more than just painting a scene. It’s about stopping time and touching the spiritual. A painting is really a reflection of the artist’s soul speaking to the viewer’s soul.”

Sandy has been creating art ever since she was old enough to hold a brush – or a pastel, her favorite medium.  She calls her paintings Impressions of Nature.  They are about “seeing the beauty and mystery of nature and inviting the viewer to take a walk along with me through my paintings.”

Turn your blue light on!

A Blue Light Event is being hosted by Kids Can Make A Change and sponsored by Bulbrite in Northampton Township later this week, which offers residents a way to honor the officers who serve and protect us while remembering those who have died in the line of duty. Project Blue Light has grown steadily as a way of remembering our departed law enforcement officers across America.

The concept is simple. Blue light bulbs will be distributed Friday, April 29th, Saturday, April 30th, and Sunday, May 1st, and residents are asked to place these bulbs in their front porch light fixtures during the entire month of May as a way of showing their support.
