Englishman William Morris, credited with launching the movement, advocated simple, finely crafted work, popularized through such widely read publications as House Beautiful and Gustave Stickley’s Craftsman.

The Fantastical Art of Niko Chocheli at Villanova Art Gallery o remarkable are the variant styles, image content and art forms of painter, muralist, illustrator, iconographer, and etcher Niko Chocheli that a newcomer to one of his solo exhibits might think he or she happened upon a showing of several artists. In April, the internationally honored Doylestown, PA, artist, teacher and storyteller by way of the Republic of Georgia, brings to the Villanova University Art Gallery his fantastical paintings and drawings based on mythology, fairy tales, religion and history; works in the form and style of European Old Masters, academic drawings, original illustrations from his published books, and sacred icons. The free public exhibit, “No Day Without a Line”: The Art of Niko Chocheli, opened Tuesday, April 22, in the on-campus Gallery, Connelly Center, 2nd floor. An opening reception to meet the artist will take place Friday, April 25, from 5 to 7 p.m., also in the Gallery. Refreshments will be served. Convenient parking is available. The exhibit continues to June 9. Educated as a classical artist in his native The exhibit, “No Day Without a Line”: The Art of Niko Chocheli, opened Georgia and deeply devoted to his Eastern Tuesday, April 22, at Villanova’s Connelly Center, 2nd floor. An opening reception to meet the artist will take place Friday, April 25, from 5 to 7 p.m. Orthodox faith, Chocheli hopes his Villanova exhibit “will leave a legacy, something of value for all who come. I hope each person will find something to take from my work a meaning, the sense of an inner depth.” From his early childhood, Chocheli’s family imbued in him a strong sense of Georgia’s national identity, cultural distinctiveness, and history. Located along the storied Silk Trade Route where Asia and Europe meet in the Caucasus Mountains, the world’s oldest Christian nation (the 4th century AD) has long been a target of conquest. Invaded and occupied many times, the people of the now independent country have stoutly clung to their great culture, and repeatedly resisted assimilation. In addition to his classical art education, Chocheli also gained from his parents a world view and a strong desire to learn of other peoples and cultures. Worldwide, his work has appeared in more than 35 group exhibitions, and in the United States he has been accorded over 40 solo exhibits. Of himself, he says, “Two things guide me as a person and artist. The first is my Christian Orthodox faith; the second is beauty. They are who I am, my faith being first and foremost.” Speaking most directly to his faith in his art are his icons and religious murals found in churches, schools and universities, monasteries, other institutions across the Delaware Valley and in his native land. A whimsical playfulness shows in his mystical and folk tale paintings of animals, sea creatures and other life forms occupying fantastic landscapes, and in his acclaimed illustrations for children’s faith books.

athleen Poliski, a Neumann University senior, has won the Grand Prize in the Independence Blue Cross (IBX) 90Second Video Contest, designed to raise awareness among millennials about the need for health insurance. As Grand Prize winner, Poliski, a Communications and Media Arts major, will receive $10,000 from IBX. Her humorous 90-second video focused on the need for health care coverage in case of a spontaneous zombie attack. (Watch the video at http://www.neumann.edu/about/news/ news13-14/IBX.asp.) The giant health insurance company launched the “IBX: 90 Seconds” competition to show that everyone can benefit from having health insurance — no matter their age or health status. The company asked for video submissions of up to 90 seconds in one of three categories: • My Independence Blue Cross Insurance Story, • The Moment I Knew I Needed Health Insurance, and • A Parent’s Wisdom on the Importance of Health Insurance. The contest began on February 7 with a call for entries, which were posted and open to a popular vote on March 6. Winners were announced on March 24. In addition to Poliski’s $10,000 Grand Prize, Temple University won $10,000 as the school in the contest with the most student and alumni entry votes.

Penn Vet Ophthalmologists Offer Free Eye Exams for Service Dogs

Affordably Advertise Your Business or Organization in City Suburban News!

Registration is now open through April 30 enn Vet’s Ryan Hospital is hosting the 7th annual National Service Dog Eye Exam event sponsored by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) and Merial. On May 6, 8, 12-16 and 21, Penn Vet’s Dr. Gustavo Aguirre, professor of ophthalmology; Dr. William Crumley, staff ophthalmologist; and Dr. Stephen Gross, staff ophthalmologist, will join 190 ACVO board-certified ophthalmologists conducting eye examinations across the country. The ACVO/Merial National Service Dog Eye Exam is a philanthropic effort generously provided to the public by the board-certified Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists, who donate their time and services to provide free ocular exams to qualified service animals. As a way to serve dogs who dedicate their lives to serving us, these exams are free to registered service dogs across the United States and Canada. Through these efforts, service dog health can be improved and potential disease averted. How to Make an Appointment To qualify, animals must be “active working animals” that were certified by a formal training program or organization or currently enrolled in a formal training program. The certifying organization can be national, regional, or local in nature. 1. Owners/agents for the animal(s) must FIRST register the animal via an online registration form at www.ACVOeyeexam.org. Registration ends April 30. 2. Once registered online, the owners/agents will receive a registration number and will be allowed access to a list of participating ophthalmologists in their area. 3. Owners/agents may then contact Ryan Hospital’s appointment desk (215-746-8387) to schedule an appointment What Veterinary Ophthalmologists Look for During the Exam During the complete ocular exam, veterinary specialists look for problems including redness, squinting, cloudy corneas, retinal disease, early cataracts, and other serious abnormalities. Early detection and treatment are vital to these working animals. The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists® is an approved veterinary specialty organization of the American Board of Veterinary Specialties, and is recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association. Its mission is “to advance the quality of veterinary medicine through certification of veterinarians who demonstrate excellence as specialists in veterinary ophthalmology.” To become board certified, a candidate must complete a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree, a one-year internship, a three-year approved residency, and pass a series of credentials and examinations.

GFS Celebrates National Library Week By Laura Jamieson he Friends Free Library at Germantown Friends School celebrated National Library Week by asking library visitors (students, employees, parents and community members) to share how libraries have changed their lives. “It has been so much fun to hear all of the different stories,” says library assistant Kathryn Murphy. People wrote on a dry-erase sign and shared a “selfie” photo to the nationwide hashtag campaign #NLW14 #LivesChange. The stories included a high-school student recalling memorizing her library card number before she knew her phone number, a preschooler writing that reading books about dinosaurs makes him feel like he is “living with the dinosaurs” and a community patron sharing his dream of one day becoming a librarian. “Dreams are discovered in libraries and libraries provide a path for those dreams to come true,” says Murphy. Kackie St. Clair, head of the Friends Free Library, says, “Libraries are a place to connect your knowledge and your curiosity to the worlds beyond the library walls; and a much-needed place for some peace and quiet.” At the FFL, the staff assists community members with computer skills, writing resumes and Students at Germantown Friends School share their love for the filling out job Friends Free Library. applications. The also get to know and help every student. “These connections may be small but they are significant in building a sense of community and belonging,” says Murphy. “Libraries provide endless resources and support—for FREE!

said David B. Devan, General Director and President of Opera Philadelphia. “As we were casting these roles, we kept finding these great, nationally-renowned singers who had connections to Philadelphia. In many ways, we have assembled an all-star Philadelphia cast, and that makes us even more excited to share this incredible production with our great city.” A cadre of the most prestigious alumni of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Academy of Vocal Arts come home to star in director Nicholas Muni’s lavish production, which is conducted by George Manahan. Baritone Elliot Madore (Yamadori in 2009’s Madame Butterfly), a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and a winner of the 2010 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, returns as the beguiling Giovanni. Soprano Michelle Johnson, returns as Donna Anna, the conflicted object of Giovanni’s desire. The Academy of Vocal Arts alumnus is herself a Grand Prize winner of the 2011 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Johnson made a dazzling Opera Philadelphia debut in 2012 in the title role of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut. American lyric soprano Amanda Majeski (Curtis Institute of Music), makes her role debut as the spurned Donna Elvira, with David Portillo (Goro in Madame Butterfly) as Anna’s loyal fiancé, Don Ottavio. Joseph Barron (Curtis Institute of Music), last seen here in Otello, plays Giovanni’s loyal servant, Leporello. American mezzo-soprano Cecelia Hall makes her company debut as Zerlina, another of the Don’s attempted conquests, with Wes Mason (Academy of Vocal Arts), debuting as her fiancé, Masetto. Nicholas Masters (Academy of Vocal Arts), makes his company debut as Il Commendatore.

rialized by the Villanova University community for her humanitarianism. She guided and supported his candidacy to become a permanent resident of the United States based on his “extraordinary ability in the arts,” a coveted status given usually to Nobel Prize winners and artists of established world note. In 1998, Chocheli was notified that he had been granted permanent residency under a unique Alien of Extraordinary Abilities Visa issued by the U.S. Government. Of that recognition, he says, “For Georgians, the United States was a beacon of freedom, looked up to and respected. I had read Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, Washington Irving, O Henry and other great American writers. When I arrived in Doylestown, it was like I had been here before. I left home to come home.” Chocheli’s work is often compared to that of DaVinci, Michelangelo, and Rubens. Br. Daniel Burke (FSC), founder of the LaSalle University Art Museum, described the artist as having “the talent, vision and inner drive to become one of our century’s true masters.” In 1998, continuing in the educator/artist footsteps of his parents, he founded the Chocheli School of Fine Arts in Doylestown as a place where aspiring artists may obtain classical educations in fine art based upon the teachings of the Great Masters, instruction in drawing and painting in several media, and a solid grounding in art history. In 2009, in recognition of his impact on the cultural and artistic life of Bucks County, the Central Bucks County Chamber of Commerce awarded Chocheli its ‘Lifetime Achievement Award in the Arts.’ He also ardently keeps alive his connection with his birth country: “I miss my homeland dearly, but I have no sense of loss. For in a way, I have never left it. What I have is a sense of responsibility to represent America in Georgia and to bring the rich culture of Georgia to my new home.” The Art Gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. into most evenings. For extended and weekend hours, and other information, telephone the Art Gallery at 610-519-4612. Selected works for the Niko Chocheli exhibit may be previewed on the gallery’s website at www.artgallery.villanova.edu.

Special guests returning to Chocolate Symphony Auction Garden Party, are former television consumer reporter, Orien Reid and WIP SportsRadio’s Big Daddy Graham, who will join her throughout the silent auction to provide “color commentary” and encourage bidders to bid high and bid often! Chocolate Symphony features some of the most innovative chocolate treats and desserts created by a selection of the area’s most notable pastry chefs and chocolatiers – including some who have personal connections to Alzheimer’s and are willing to share their stories about the disease’s impact on their families. Chocolate Symphony ticket sales and funding from major sponsors like, Genesis HealthCare and BAYADA Home Health Care benefit the Alzheimer’s Association Delaware Valley Chapter, which provides to nearly 300,000 people in the Delaware, South Jersey, Southeastern Pennsylvania region, free and low-cost programs & services such as its 24/7 Helpline, EarlyStage programs, caregiver support groups, consumer education, MedicAlert®+Safe Return®, and others. More than five million people in the United States are affected by Alzheimer’s, the most common type of dementia. The disease is the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death – more than prostate cancer and breast cancer combined. It’s also the only top-ten cause of death without a cure, way to prevent it, or even slow its progression. According to the recently-released 2014 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report, without a significant medical breakthrough, the number of Americans with Alzheimer’s could triple by the year 2050. Ticket and sponsorship information are available by calling Lisa Radin at 800-272-3900 or visiting www.alz.org/desjsepa.
