ABOUT THE CANDLES:
Kim Galley began making candles in her basement in 1998 in order to stay at home
and earn an income while caring for her school age children. In 2006, she moved
her operation into a retail store and factory in downtown Canal Fulton, Ohio.
Candle making is an art. A combination of science and mathematics
are used in measuring, testing and blending fragrance and wax.
We use a Natural Soy Vegetable Wax formulated specifically for
container candles. It can be difficult to produce a “good throwing” candle. The throw is the term used for the scent
that the candle gives off both hot (while burning) and cold (not burning).

DEBRA-LYNN HOOK, a graduate of Louisiana University’s
School of Journalism, is a journalist and syndicated family-life
columnist, whose writing has been recognized by a number of organizations
including the Institute of Southern Studies. Debra-Lynn is also
a mostly self-taught photographer who began her career at age
19, shooting Shriners for their annual yearbooks. She honed her
craft with a scattering of photojournalism classes and then by
working for more than a decade alongside seasoned photojournalists.
Debra-Lynn, who applies her skills to wedding, family, and senior
portraiture, as well as landscapes and stills, appreciates photos
that capture the moment, that evoke emotional response and that
point to a direct relationship between photographer and subject.
Her work has been exhibited in various Kent venues, most recently
Taco Tonto’s. Debra-Lynn's web site is www.debralynnhook.com.
BOB AND CASS MAYFIELD are the owners of McKay
Bricker Framing & Black Squirrel Gallery & Gifts in downtown
Kent. They offer quality custom matting and framing and regularly
exhibit work from the local area. They are both Certified Picture
Framers (CPF) & Members of the Professional Picture Framers

fifth graders to the art museum, taking place April 15, 2011 at
the gallery. The McKay Bricker Framing & Black Squirrel Gallery

TINA PUCKETT is an MFA candidate in Creative
Writing with a concentration in Poetry, who also enjoys amateur
photography ranging from nature, landscape, and abstract to event
photography and portraits. She won a People's Choice award with
The Wilderness Center's 2010 Fotofest Nature Photography Contest
and appeared in the art anthology "Stark Arthology"
as a juried choice that same year. Her photography has been exhibited
in The Canton Museum of Art's "Stark Arthology" Launch
Exhibition (2010), at McKay Bricker Framing & Black Squirrel
Gallery for the 2010 River Day Photography Exhibition, and during
benefit exhibitions at the North Water Street Gallery.
CHERYL A. TOWNSEND has been exhibiting her works
for over 10 years with numerous solo and group exhibits as well
as book, CD and magazine covers and is often featured in both
print and web-based journals. Her work has most recently been
on display at Summit ArtSpace in Akron and Studio 2091 in Cuyahoga
Falls. Her photography leans to the metaphorical side. Minimalistic
and secretive, she seeks overlooked angles and textured forms,
vibrant displays of discarded beauty and grains. Looking for the
tree in the forest, she focuses further on the patterns in the
bark. She has always sought the secrets in life, preferring to
view it though her camera's lens. Her work can be viewed at http://aroundkent.net/Cheryl_Townsend.php.
