    The Little Things

    Exhibit begins: July 2  •  Artist Reception: Friday, July 12 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

    "The Little Things", features original paintings by Rhode Island artist, Sam Glevick. With the use of acrylic gouache, they explore ways of creating a sense of wonder, curiosity and conversation in their paintings. Each piece is created by utilizing not only color, light and composition, but often fragments of landscapes, and wildlife. Through these methods, they attempt to compose storytelling moments that feel familiar or nostalgic to the viewer. Moments that suggest the presence of life, a glimmer of déjà vu, a long lost memory or a greater appreciation for the little things, that may otherwise be overlooked.

    All paintings will be available to purchase directly through the artist via www.samanthaglevick.com upon the opening of the show.

    This exhibit will be shown in the Queer Galleries at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center July 2 - 27, Tuesday through Friday.

    Keystone QTBIPOC Short Film Festival

    Are you a filmmaker living in Pennsylvania? Do you identify as QTBIPOC (Queer, Trans, Black,
    Indigenous, Person of Color)?
    Have you ever been hesitant to submit film work relating to QTBIPOC subjects because of adverse responses?
    Look no further!

    The Keystone QTBIPOC Short Film Festival, a program of the Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community
    Center in Allentown, PA, will take place October 4, 5, and 6, 2024.

    The Festival centers QTBIPOC filmmakers in Pennsylvania, and creates a platform where they can
    interact with an audience and present their work in a fun, inclusive, and professional setting that
    celebrates them. It will culminate with an awards ceremony where we show our gratitude and
    present award certificates for Best K-12 Submission, Best College Submission, Best Standard
    Submission, & Audience Choice. Winning films will also be screened at Lehigh Valley Pride 2025.
    We encourage artists of all ages to submit their work. Films should center members of the QTBIPOC
    community and at least one of the three main roles (director, writer, producer) is led by a QTBIPOC.
    All films must have a runtime between 3 and 40 minutes. Student (K-12 & College) submissions
    must have a runtime of 15 minutes or less.

    Regular Standard Submission Fee: $20
    Regular College Student Submission Fee: $15
    Regular K-12 Student Submission Fee: Free
