Top 10 in Kennett Square, PA
It’s fun to be a tourist whether you are venturing to a new destination or revisiting your home town. The upcoming exhibition of my Koi Pond Series at Mala Galleria in Kennett Square, PA, from May 1- June 3, 2014 is a great opportunity to share with you new work, as well as my adopted home town. 

Top 10 Things to Do in Kennett Square, PA

1. Come to my Artist Reception on May 2, 2014, 6 -9 pm at Mala Galleria.  Owner Zvezdana “Stella” Stojanovic Scott has a great “eye” and exhibits local based as well as international artists.

2. Check out the studio and gallery of artist and friend Carol Lesher just around the corner. We met through our sons when I walked into her house to pick up Nate. I saw a yoga mat on the floor and a beautiful painting over her mantel (her work) and knew I had met a new friend.

3. Dinner at Lily Asian Cuisine– especially on Tuesday for their all you can eat sushi.

BONUS OFFER: Bring my exhibition card to Lily’s, May 2nd, the night of my reception
and receive 10% off your dinner bill.

4. Wine tasting and live music on First and Third Fridays at Flickerwood Wine Tasting Room AND while you’re there…

Owner and Chef Brett Hulbert of Portobellos with his partner Sandy visit Cathy of
The Mushroom Cap to order some mushrooms for their restaurant. 

5. Order dinner from Portabellos (did I mention that Kennett Square is the Mushroom Capital of The World?) The restaurant is across the street from Flickerwood and a server will deliver your food along with a linen table cloth, ceramic plates china and silver utensils.

6. Shop at Eco Boutique– the shop with a conscience, and often, an art show. I have shown my Walks thru Life: Shoe Portraits there.

7. Coffee at Talula’s Table, a Kennett Square staple- or the newer and very hip Philter. Each with it’s cool decor- and more art to see.


8. Nourish Juice Bar and Cafe at the Liberty Market. You will be able to sample a personal juice favorite at Mala Galleria for my Opening on May 2, thanks to owner/ entrepreneur Francine Covelli. (Thanksgiving, the best pumpkin pie I have ever tasted- the chocolate pie crust may have had something to do with that)

his kale, carrot, apple, ginger juice!
9. George & Son’s Seafood Market, also at Liberty Market. Always fresh- and friendly. 

10. La Michoacana Ice Cream– family owned and home made ice cream with intriguing as well as traditional flavors served with chocolate toppings, chili powder- or not.
Cool or hot, La Michoacana’s got it… so yummy!

If you need to walk all this off, Longwood Gardens just up Route 1 never disappoints, and Anson B. Nixon Park is right down the street with their walking trails, disc golf, courts and fields and a stage for summer performances.
