Behind the Lens: Raymond Pitcairn and Photography @ Glencairn Museum
Aug 23 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Raymond Pitcairn (1885-1966) is remembered primarily for his two remarkable architectural achievements: Bryn Athyn Cathedral, and Glencairn, the Bryn Athyn home he built for his family and art collections. It is less well known that Pitcairn had a lifelong interest in photography, becoming a serious amateur photographer in his early 20s. It was this hobby that led to his first architectural project—designing a photography studio across the street from Cairnwood, his childhood home. The studio, which still stands, included a darkroom and a large room with skylights for posing his subjects.

Glencairn Museum maintains a large archive of photographic prints and negatives—including thousands of glass negatives—documenting the Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn family, the construction of Bryn Athyn Cathedral, Glencairn, Glen Tonche (the family’s summer home in the Catskills), and many other subjects. All of the photographs in this exhibition are drawn from this remarkable collection.

The Exhibition, is open FREE of charge, for self-guided viewing on Saturdays from 1:00–4:30 pm.  Weekdays with tour or by appointment.

Civil War Era Music @ Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library
Aug 23 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Over time music has been a means to tell stories of events and people throughout history and the Civil War is no different. Music from the Civil War era gives listeners insight to soldier life, the traditions of the time, to the domestic scenes from which they came, as well as giving solace and relief to the people mourning the deaths of 600,000-plus Americans. Join us when Thomas Jolin, Commonwealth Speaker for Pennsylvania Humanities Council, performs Civil War Era Music at 1:00 pm on Saturday, August 23, 2014 at the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Library, 680 Radcliffe Street, Bristol, PA. His musical repertoire includes Lincoln and Liberty, Battle Cry of Freedom, No More Auction Block and more on hammered dulcimer, button accordion, harmonica and banjo. Mr. Jolin also discusses the origins of the songs and the instruments. Audience participation is encouraged at this family event. This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities; the program is funded through a Civil War 150 grant from the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in partnership with The Library of America and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Enjoy a gala outdoor stage concert and show, a public social dance, homemade Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, kid’s fun area, and Ukrainian hospitality.

Enjoy VOLOSHKY UKRAINIAN DANCE ENSEMBLE (Jenkintown, PA) (www.voloshky.com); ISKRA UKRAINIAN DANCE ENSEMBLE (Whippany, NJ) (Facebook); Violinist INNESA TYMOCHKO DEKAJLO (Lviv, Ukraine); THE SPIV-Zhyttya (Living.inSONG) CHOIR (DC); and THE VOX ETHNIKA BAND (New York City); (www.voxethnika.com). A Ukrainian Public Social Dance (Zabava) to live Ukrainian polka, ballroom, traditional and modern music by the THE VOX ETHNIKA BAND will follow the stage concert and show. Ukrainian ethnic foods, baked goods, standard picnic fare and cool refreshments will be plentiful. Also, enjoy a children’s fun area and a folk arts and crafts bazaar.
