Since I have a new life with 4 day week-ends, not by choice, for sure, I thought I should head south and check in on the elderly folks.
They live in Lancaster, PA. But what to do to have some fun on the way?
Check out Goggleworks in Reading, PA.
Goggleworks is an old factory which made glass lenses and goggles. There are 6 buildings of art. One is a glass hot shop; one is ceramics, one is a theatre of sorts, lots of parking, interesting art a facts in downtown Reading now. Goggleworks is a lovely facility of 60-80 art studios, mostly painters. There is a fine craft gallery, too. What a gem!
The only bad thing today was the heat! My car thermometer said it was 102 o F until I arrived in Lancaster at 1pm. Tonight it is still 90 oF. Enough already.
Yes, there are classes. I plan to inquire about their artists in residence program. What a great use of a government grant. And Reading is now a thriving city!
