Rain or shine, this is a good day for outdoor arts and music.
The 50th Annual Bethlehem Fine Art and Craft Show, this weekend only, takes place from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. today, Sunday, May 10, 2015 in historic downtown Bethlehem.
Main Street will be filled with over 80 fine artists and craft artisans displaying and selling their art. Street music, an artist-in-residence, a raffle with chance to win a piece of fine art, and a children’s art area will add to the festivities. As always, there is no admission charge!
Recent works in stone (very large for a park or your yard, to small enough to fit on a bookshelf) are on public display at the 17th Annual Spring Art Show at Cedar Maze.
Cedar Maze is the sculpture garden and studio of Steven Snyder. Inspired by his experiences living, working and raising a family in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Steven uses local stone as well as natural and found objects in his work.
Steven’s works include the wonderful sculptures, fountains, benches, bird baths, water tables, and more. This free show takes place rain or shine, May 9, 10 and May 16, 17, 2015 from 11 am. to 6 p.m. at 252 Cafferty Road, Pipersville, PA 18947 (Use Pipersville 18947 for GPS). Check out the website for a hint at to how beautiful these pieces are; they must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. 610-294-9106

On the Upper East Side of New York in 1943, as World War II rages abroad, Fred, a subdued young writer from the South, meets the vivacious, wild and popular Holly Golightly, who is a BLONDE, and is quickly and quietly fascinated by her charms. This Breakfast is about friendships that may be a blip in a lifetime but that are utterly unshakeable. Produced by special arrangement with the adapter Richard Greenberg and the Capote estate, Civic’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s will be the only production of this play produced anywhere this year.
Tickets are available online, at the box office, and by calling the box office at 610-432-8943.
