Featured Artist Melissa Sandoe


Melissa Sandoe tries to live by this mantra. Whether she is at the easel in her studio near Bender’s Church or arranging chicken nuggets and smiley fries on her son’s dinner plate, it is art. She will be displaying recent work in the sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalists of Gettysburg, 136 South Stratton Street, Gettysburg, during the months of September and October.

There will be a wine and cheese opening reception on First Friday, September 5, 2014. Please join the artist to view and ask questions between 5 and 7 in the evening.

The show of more than twenty pieces includes portraits, landscapes, fiber arts and drawings, including a series of images inspired by her studies of the goddess with her late spiritual guide, Kamae Amrapali Miller. Work is completed in a variety of medium including oils, acrylics, oil pastels and pencil.

Ms. Sandoe has been a member of UUG for nine years and is currently serving on the Board of Directors. Melissa regularly volunteers at Vida Charter School, Gettysburg.. Ms. Sandoe received a Bachelor of Science from Mansfield University studying Art, Textiles, and Business. She lives in Biglerville with her partner and son. As a life-long resident of Adams County, she sees art everyday in nature around her.

UUG Book Club meets September 11th

The UUG Book Club will be having its 1st meeting on Thursday, Sept 11 at 6:30 at UUG. The book club is open to those interested in public presentations of notable book selections. All books are chosen by members of the book club.

The first selection is “Destiny of the Republic: A Tale of Madness, Medicine, and the Murder of a President” by Candice Millard. This is the book choice of last year’s Adams County Reads One Book campaign. A lively and colorful account of the history surrounding the assassination of President James Garfield in 1881 and one that opens up questions – the fascinating “what-ifs” – that make history an absorbing subject for many. Dessert & coffee will be available.

The book club will meet on the second Thursday of each month.
