The Roundup:

3 things to do this week

Cecil Whig - - ACCENT -

Do some­thing nice Noth­ing com­pli­cated about this one. Wed­nes­day, Oct. 5th is Do Some­thing Nice Day, which means we should all cel­e­brate by hold­ing doors, hand­ing out com­pli­ments, let­ting that driver in the ad­ja­cent lane move over, etc. You know how to be nice.

This day is es­pe­cially im­por­tant con­sid­er­ing the di­vi­sive pe­riod this coun­try has found it­self in as of late. With elec­tion day just around the cor­ner, ten­sions are only build­ing. So take it upon your­self to loosen them.

Now, there’s not ex­actly sci­en­tific proof that Earth works karmi­cally, but who knows? Maybe it does. Might as well cover your bases. See what’s hap­pen­ing in the lo­cal arts scene The Ce­cil County Arts Coun­cil will host its an­nual ju­ried show re­cep­tion Fri­day, dur­ing which prize win­ners will be se­lected from re­cently sub­mit­ted arts pieces. If you dis­agree with their se­lec­tions, you’ll be able to vote in a “Best in Show” piece.

This event will join with the un­veil­ing of the 6x6 Can­vas Show. Artists of var­i­ous lev­els of fame have been at work on th­ese for some time, and now the pub­lic will have the op­por­tu­nity to spend $20 for any of them, with­out hav­ing a clue who made it.

There will also be light re­fresh­ments and a live per­for­mance by the band Day Trip­per. Visit ce­cil­count­yartscoun­cil.org for more in­for­ma­tion, call 410-392-5740 or email info@ce­cil­count­yartscoun­cil.org. Go get some pump­kins It’s pump­kin har­vest week­end at Mil­burn Or­chards on Satur­day and Sun­day. Head out there with your fam­ily or friends to get a head start on your pump­kin pick­ing. The or­chards prom­ise pump­kins of all shapes and sizes, as well as other mis­cel­la­neous items of dec­o­ra­tion like gourds, corn stalks, In­dian corn, straw bales and more.

As with other fall fes­ti­val dates here, kids aged 2 and un­der cost noth­ing to get in, in­di­vid­u­als from 3 to 59 cost $10, and se­niors cost $5. Check mil­burnor­chards.com/fall-fes­ti­val-par­ties/ for more in­for­ma­tion.

Rob­bins speaks on the per­sonal im­por­tance of the por­trait he painted of his fa­ther as a younger man in the Navy (far right). He used an old mil­i­tary photo of his fa­ther to model the face, but im­posed it on an im­age of his own body. To the up­per left of that paint­ing is a por­trait of his mother.

Cameron John Rob­bins has also painted his fa­ther as an older man.
