Andy Smetzer300Photographer Andy Smetzer will be at 42 West ARTS as well on Saturday afternoon. He is set to demonstrate the art of photo composition between the hours of 2:00 and 4:00. Smetzer assembles a library of images depicting items such as clouds, rocks and tree stumps before using Adobe Photoshop computer software to place them together as part of a new creation.

“I particularly like stormy, moody landscapes, and I try to capture that feeling in my shots,” Smetzer explains. “Being part of the 42 West ARTS Co-Op has inspired me to shoot more and learn more.”

McFarlandandSussmanThe duo of Tom McFarland and Andrew Sussman bring the weekend of entertainment to a close on Sunday afternoon. They’ll be playing a variety of blues tunes and standards inside Gallery 20 East from 2:00 to 4:00.

These performances are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
