Short Stories by Amy Burczyk: Amy Burczyk says, “I am a kid, Mother, Grandmother, Artist, Interior Designer (in that order). With a degree in Interior Design and an "almost" degree in Fine Arts from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee Wisconsin. I ran away to Wonderland, fell down a rabbit hole and ended up in Lynchburg Virginia. My art reflects my approach to life: a childlike sense of wonder, what if and defense. I use whimsey - animals, rhymes, songs, and nonsense to cope with 'adult' issues, much the way children have for centuries. My art may not match your sofa, but I hope it makes you think and entertains.” The exhibit is in the Centre Gallery. Non-Objective Illusions in Black: Is black a color? by Dan Thompson: Dan Thompson was a musician for most of his life. He now channels that energy into his paintings. His new work departs from his previous style and he presents a different vision. Wait and see! The exhibit is in the Skylight Gallery.

06/06/2021 to 06/06/2021At home, Columbia, MD 21042
The Howard County Family Wellness Day and the Matzohball 5K are bringing our community together to make wellness a priority. COVID will not stop us on Sunday, June 6, 2021, from putting on our running shoes, stepping outside and being together in spirt for the 17th Annual Matzohball 5K! On that day, even though we are virtual, we will be together, running, walking, making our health and the health of our community a priority! In addition to offering both the Matzohball 5K run/walk and 1 Mile run at no cost to participants, 100% of all donations made through the sign-up registration process on the race website will go to the following three charities: Grass Roots, Dream Builders and Hope Works (over $50,000 donated to date). You can walk or run your own personal 5K or 1 mile course anywhere; all we ask is that you continue to maintain safe physical distancing as you run. Track your time using a FitBit, Apple Watch, running app, or any way you want, and even upload your results to be posted on our site! You can also use the RaceJoy app to enhance your experience with real time tracking and cheers! We hope that you will join us for all of the fun beginning with our opening ceremony, live on zoom, at 8:30am that morning. But you can choose to run or walk any day or time, starting with the 9am official start on Sunday, June 6th right up through the following Sunday, June 13th.
