    Lancaster's Museum of Art and History (MOAH) opened its doors with an entirely new suite of shows celebrating the Contemporary Landscape: From the Desert to the Sea. The new suite of exhibits will continue to run through Jan. 11, 2015. As part of artist Kim Abeles' Shared Skies exhibit at MOAH, a photo-shoot officially kicked off her Shared Skies: Antelope Valley project.

    Shared Skies is an exhibit of Abeles' prints created in collaboration with participants worldwide. The public was invited to send the artist a digital image of the sky taken in their part of the world. To date, the artist has created photomontage prints including skies above every continent, from the Arctic to Antarctica. These original Shared Skies prints are presented in MOAH's East Gallery, and Abeles will assemble a new print based on images taken of the Antelope Valley sky.

    DIY painting classes offered locally

    Get your home ready for a great 2015 and have fun while learning to use a popular DIY product: chalk based paint. Country Chic paint is available exclusively in town at Expert Estates on North Mill Street. It is made in the USA and is non-toxic and free of volatile organic compounds which are smelly and not great for your home.

    Expert Estates owner, Lisa Kroese, said, "When we were having our first daughter, someone freecycled a crib and changing table. I envisioned painting them, but all the paint chemicals made me sick. I was in an apartment and had a hard time working outside in the summer heat. I kept thinking there had to be a better paint product for home projects like this! I was so happy with Country Chic. It was the kind of safe, simple paint product I thought had to exist someplace and now I sell it at my store. We can also custom paint your projects for you, if you don't have time to DIY."
