POTTSTOWN, PA – ArtFusion 19464 is proud to announce the opening of the latest in their series of educational exhibits. As part of their effort to live their mission of making the arts accessible to everyone in their community, ArtFusion 19464 curates a special exhibit each year with an educational focus. They choose topics they believe they can teach about through art. Past topics have included the civil rights movement, the Vietnam war, and women’s history. This year the focus will be on art and the environment with a show called Reclaim. Art featured in this show will be created from recycled, upcycled and salvaged items. The artists have been challenged to reclaim the definition of art, to show that creativity and imagination can expand a view of art as only paint and canvas. Reclaim will run in the main gallery from October 8 through November 19.

During every educational exhibit, ArtFusion 19464 offers free field trips to local schools. Each field trip is tailored to the age of the students and is a fun, interactive learning experience.  Students who visit during Reclaim will learn important facts about the environment, recycling and the newest inventions in the fight to tame this country’s trash. They will also have an opportunity to create a piece of recycled art themselves. In keeping with the theme, students will engage in a discussion about environmental issues and how individual and group actions affect the health and well-being of the planet. Teachers and group leaders interested in scheduling a field trip can call 610-326-2506 or emailinfo@artfusion19464.org.

ONE OF THE MOST SENSATIONAL FARCES EVER WRITTEN

Charley’s Aunt is set during the Victorian era at Oxford University, in the quarters of two undergraduates who frantically search for a way to express their love to their soon departing sweethearts. The solution to their problem comes in the form of Charley’s aunt who is visiting from Brazil. With her acting as a chaperone, the boys can invite their lovers to an official lunch and finally pop the question. However, all goes wrong when a message arrives informing the boys that the aunt is delayed and won’t make it in time. In a last ditch effort the young lads coerce their friend to don a dress and become “Charley’s aunt.” Throughout the afternoon the troublesome trio fumble through spastic conversations, unexpected suitors, cat-and-mouse meet-ups, and the occasional teatime mishap. Charley’s Aunt is a frenzied farce filled with so many twists and turns it will make your head spin.
