“Paint Down Main” Quick Draw Event, Historic Ellicott City

20 08 2016

On July 9, 2016, talented (& calm) artists created artwork that they painted in historic downtown Ellicott City during a TWO hour period.  “Paint Down Main”, Quick Draw competition was held on a hot, but beautiful, Saturday morning and it was an AMAZING event to watch! “Paint Down Main” Quick Draw event is within the Paint It! Ellicott City Plein Air Event. How awesome for spectators to witness a piece of art created and completed in such a short amount of time!

The sponsors of this creative and challenging event were Mat About You Custom Framing & Gallery, Ellicott City Partnership (ECP), Howard County Arts Council, Howard County Tourism.

At noon, the blow of the horn sounded, signaling the finish time, painters gathered at the Howard County Tourism lot, displayed their artwork and waited patiently 🙂 while the jurors judged their art. Judges Steve Stannard of Steve Stannard’s Salient Group,  Char Randolph of ClayGround and Sara Arditti, of Still Life Fine Art Gallery, chose winners in the competition for cash prizes. Patrons could then purchase their favorite painting directly off the easel or visit the Paint Down Main exhibit during the Ellicott City 2nd Sunday Art Market, held at Mat About You Gallery on July 10th.

This awesome event is the brainchild of Chuck Gruss of Mat About You, “We hold this event to give the town’s visitors, a chance to see a piece of art work come together from start to finish.  It’s not too often someone gets a chance to see that happen in a such a short amount of time”.

Last year, 2015, was the inaugural year and welcomed 33 participants competing for $600 in cash prizes! This year, 2016, there were 48 participants competing for $1200 in cash prizes!! Mat About you Custom Framing and Gallery, Ellicott City Partnership and Chesapeake Fine Art Studio all donated toward the cash prizes.

This is one of the many cultural events held in Historic Ellicott City throughout the year. I am looking forward to having our street back and rockin’ the events again!

As I walked around the Quick Draw boundaries, searching for painters, I was in complete awe with what I saw.  Each painter interpreted their views so differently and every single one of them, so magnificently. I loved seeing the many different techniques the artists displayed, the different interpretations of the same landscape. The unique color choices, some muted, some vibrant. Yet they all had something in common, they each produced incredible and beautiful pieces of art.

I hope you enjoy these photos.

Thank you to everyone involved! Hope to see you next year!

5th Anniversary of Power of the Purse – 2016 – A HUGE Success!

14 07 2016

 

POTP-5th-anniversary-web1

On Monday, June 13th, Blossoms of Hope held their fifth annual Power of the Purse silent auction and sale. This wonderful event was held in support of the Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center at Howard County General Hospital. For the past five years this event has courteously been held at the Sub-Zero and Wolf Showroom by Fretz, located in Columbia.

2016 POTP Pam Long Photography (61 of 191)

In 2015 over 1,400 gently used and vintage purses were generously donated from individuals all over the state. As 2016 approached, goals and ambitions of collecting more bags were higher than ever. With great pride, I am able to say this year over 2,900 purses were donated and the event received more than $50,000 in donations from local businesses for the Silent Auction! This event is largely remarkable in the way it brings the community together.

There is no better person to bring camaraderie and resources to events than Michelle Wildman, owner of MW Events, a 16-year old business that specializes in Galas, fundraisers, and uniquely entertaining parties. Michelle was this year’s Chairperson for the Power of the Purse and worked countless hours for the past year preparing for this successful fundraiser. You’ve heard the expression, “if you want to get something done, give it to a busy person”?  Michelle surrounded herself with busy, organized and helpful volunteers that she guided throughout the process with informative and detailed emails, ensuring great communication. Michelle organized meetings, luncheons, and creative get togethers throughout the year to continually keep everyone informed and excited. These get togethers weren’t opportunities to only mingle, Michelle had a purpose for each scheduled date, checking items off her major list each month! The words AMAZING, TREMENDOUS, RESOURCEFUL, CONVINCING ;-), INCREDIBLE only begin to describe Michelle and her giving heart and brilliant mind!

Below, Michelle is pictured with her awesome and supportive family. 🙂

Michelle is not one to bring attention to herself, she lifts everyone up around her, “Last year we had 16 volunteers, and this year the team grew to 50 wonderfully hard-working women! The success of Power of the Purse directly correlates to the enthusiasm and dedication of these ladies, who took time away from their families to support such an important cause. I enjoyed hosting fun activities and outings in addition to our meetings, and it was a pleasure to watch new friendships form while we learned about one another’s businesses and passions.

Thanks to such a fabulous team, our 5th anniversary event welcomed more than 500 attendees, and not only beat our fundraising goal, but nearly doubled it, bringing in $36,000 to benefit Blossoms of Hope! Over the past 11 years, Blossoms has donated over $275,000 to the Claudia Mayer/Tina Broccolino Cancer Resource Center, and we look forward to adding to that total after this year’s success.”                                                              2016 POTP Pam Long Photography (72 of 191)

Working hand in hand with this event for the fifth year in a row is The Iron Bridge Wine Co. who provided the attendees with a tasteful assortment of both red and white wines. Alongside the wines, this years event had a tasty signature cocktail called the “Purse-onalitini” made of a special and tasty secret recipe, provided by Clever Container. Following drinks, Carrabba’s Italian Grill filled the air with delicious aromas featuring shrimp lightly drizzled in a lemon butter sauce, penne pasta with fresh tomato red sauce, Chicken Marsala and many other mouth watering treats. Not only did Carrabba’s have a counter full of these amazing dishes, but throughout the event servers made their way around the room to serve hors d’oeuvres, appetizers and then desserts.

As a board member for Blossoms of Hope, Sherri Collins-Witzke’s funeral business Harry H. Witzke’s Family Funeral Home, Inc.  generously donated to become the Platinum Sponsor for Power of the Purse, as well as all of the other Blossoms of Hope events.

Brenda von Rautenkranz is always entertaining and makes a great emcee! She is pictured below with Joe Barbera of AIDA Bistro & Wine Bar, located in Columbia, Maryland.

CHASEing CANCER AWAY fundraiser. Time to Celebrate your Family with new family portraits!

11 11 2015

Have you been putting off getting your new family portrait created? We’ve got a solution for you! AND you get to help a great cause!  I talk with so many people that tell me their family portrait above their fireplace doesn’t even include their youngest child (that is now 8 years old!!), that their portrait hanging on their wall is when their children were babies and young kids, and now they’re in high school! Parents tell me they need to lose a few pounds first! PLEASE, celebrate your family NOW, don’t wait until you lose 10 lbs or until you become less busy!  Do it now! Let’s CELEBRATE your family on Sunday, November 22!

Who are we raising funds for? This remarkable 7th grader, Chase Wheatley. On September 2nd, Chase Wheatley’s parents took their son to the doctor because he was feeling lethargic and was very pale. The doctor took blood samples, and recognized the white blood cell count was extremely high. His doctor immediately notified John Hopkins Hospital that his patient was being sent over for further testing. The doctor told Mark and Kathy that they needed to take their 12 year old son to the emergency room at Hopkins. Chase was admitted to ICU so they could stabilize his condition. With further testing they diagnosed Chase with leukemia.  After multiple blood transfusions, Chase received his first chemo treatment on September 4th. The journey to a full recovery will be a three year process for the Wheatley family.

Chase Wheatley Cancer Fears ME

Kathy and Mark Wheatley are the parents of 4 children….Taylor age 15, Samantha age 14, Olivia age 13 and of course Chase age 12. The only thing that Mark and Kathy have asked for from their friends and family members are our prayers. We know that they are going to need a lot more help than that to get them through this very trying time in their life.

A portion of the medical treatments and medication will be covered by their insurance, but the Wheatley’s will incur a significant amount of medical expenses.  Parking, transportation to and from the hospital and meals while he goes in and out for chemotherapy treatments will continue until he is in remission. In addition to medical, travel and parking expenses, in order to assure a healthy environment at home between hospital stays, they will need to make some changes within their home to accommodate Chase’s weakened immune system.

Many family and friends have asked, “what can I do, how can I help”.   We have established this page as a way to help to give some financial relief to Mark and Kathy as they focus on a long road towards Chase’s successful recovery.

Please continue to pray and thank you for your donation. 

Everything you’ve read in blue is directly from Chase’s gofundme page. If you aren’t in need of new family portraits, but would still like to help, please visit his page, you can link to it here. 🙂 Thank you.

We hope to have a packed schedule on Sunday, we hope you will consider joining us!

We will also be accepting purses for next year’s Power of the Purse event!  Be sure to clean out your closet and make room for the holidays, drop your gently used handbags off at the studio on the 22nd and receive a $25 gift certificate to apply to a future portrait session!

Celebrating the wonderful Tersiguel family!

9 07 2015

If you have been to Tersiguel’s French Country Restaurant, then you know how amazing their fabulous cuisine is! In fact, they are celebrating their 40th anniversary of being in business this Saturday! I am thrilled and honored to be photographing this auspicious, sold out, event. We are all so excited about this major milestone and their outstanding accomplishment in Historic Ellicott City.

The founders of Tersiguel’s, Fernand and Odette Tersiguel, are amazing people and I’ve enjoyed getting to know them.  They are an incredible example of the benefits of hard work and determination. They came to the United States in 1963.  In 1980, they opened Chez Fernand on Main Street.  Sadly, the successful Chez Fernand burned to the ground in the fire of 1984.   Fernand and Odette persevered and  re-opened Chez Fernand in downtown Baltimore.   Fortunately for us, they wanted to return to their beloved Ellicott City and Tersiguel’s opened it’s doors, in it’s current location, in October of 1990.

Fernand and Odette Tersiguel Pam Long Photography studio Historic Ellicott City

Chef Michel is a 1984 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York. After his time in New York, he worked in Baltimore, with his family, he also worked in France and in California (with Michael Chiarello) and later served as Chef de Cuisine at Left Bank in Larskpur.  In 1997, he returned to Ellicott City to take over as Executive Chef and owner of Tersiguel’s.

In addition to valuing and serving magnificent food, they also value family and preserving family history. I had the honor of photographing three generations of Tersiguel’s: Fernand and Odette, their son, Michel and his incredible wife, Angie, and their two beautiful boys; Lucas and Landon. What an fun morning portrait session we had, it was such a glorious day! I was fortunate enough to have Lauren Ward assist me on this sunny day with this very special family. We were inspired by an family photograph of Fernand and Odette taken on their wedding day, in 1963. (They just celebrated 52 years of marriage!) Congratulations! So, we, too, took a family portrait, and used Tersiguel’s as the backdrop. We also created portraits of this beautiful family inside Tersiguel’s, in the Brit dining room. The Brit is short for the Brittany Room. This refers to the region that Fernand and Odette are from. The dishes in this room are called Quimper. That is also the name of the city in which they are made.  Angie shared with me that Quimpler is one of the coolest places she’s been (perhaps that could be the location of your next family portrait session…..I travel 😉 ).  Be sure to view their story and history via their lovely portraits, as they are displayed throughout their restaurant.

Tersiguel’s French Country Restaurant is located at 8293 Main Street, Ellicott City, MD.  Be sure to visit and dine in this delicious  restaurant, voted Best French Restaurant in Howard County, Maryland.  This is definitely a restaurant that your meal time will become a wonderful dining experience and you’ll leave with delightful memories. Tersiguel’s has been the perfect setting for countless birthday celebrations, weddings, anniversaries, graduation festivities, business functions…..imagine if THOSE walls could talk, what an extraordinary story they would tell.

To Fernand, Odette, Michel, Angie, Lucas and Landon, thank you for allowing me the privilege of spending time with you, to get to know you better, and to document more of your family history, what a great honor. I enjoyed my time with you and look forward to enjoying many more great moments together!

To the entire staff, past and present, of Tersiguel’s, thank you for continuing to strive for the best.  You really help provide memorable moments for your dining guests, thank you.

I hope you enjoy these family portraits that we created together.

Until next time, au revoir and bon appetit!

Viking Fest 2015 – Mt Hebron celebrates their 50th Anniversary!

5 04 2015

Hello, friends!  Special treat for you! I asked my friend, Michelle Wildman, to be my guest blogger today. Michelle has worked behind the scenes for the Mt Hebron Viking Fest for months, and I knew she’d have a wonderful perspective.  I hope you enjoy…..

Mt. Hebron High School was turning 50 and Lisa Scarbath had an idea!

As President of the Viking Backers Booster Club, Lisa wanted to create a special event to thank the Mt. Hebron community, while simultaneously generating funds for the many sports, groups, and clubs that the Viking Backers support within the school.

And voila – Viking Fest was born!

Enlisting the help of three of her “Event Planning” friends who happened to have children enrolled at MTH, Lisa met with Lee Draminski, Paula Shane, and Michelle Wildman to brainstorm about the exciting party details.

Lisa knew that Misspent Youth, Maryland’s top party rock band, would be a huge draw for the community, and Michelle knew that Outback Steakhouse would provide a delicious dinner, so they were quickly brought on board.  St. John’s Parish  Day School provided our exceptionally beautiful venue.

The ladies implemented a Holiday Viking Fest party to ask (beg/plead/bribe!) other MTH parents to join their committee, and to “adopt” many basket themes that would help to promote the Silent Auction.

Planning a fundraising event for 400 people is not unlike planning a wedding…but it’s a wedding where everything gets donated, and the bride and groom offer gifts to their guests instead of the other way around! Luckily, the team was up for the challenge.

They met with Mt. Hebron High School’s Principal Scott Ruehl, who couldn’t have been more supportive. MTH alum Bob Lucido of The Bob Lucido Team graciously agreed to be Viking Fest’s Presenting Sponsor. Lisa Mazzuca, Rodan+Fields Independent Consultant and Adam Stull of State Farm Ins. were also very generous in their Sponsorships!

MTH parent Donna Detweiler, owner of Pro-Outsource, donated her time to create our promotional materials, which were printed by Sponsor Vince Sharps and his fabulous team at Sir Speedy BWI. And we were ALL overjoyed when the amazingly talented, creative, and personable Pam Long, of Pam Long Photography agreed to photograph this event!  Andy Guerin, whose parents own Schuler School of Fine Arts,  whipped up our Viking Fest mural with lightning speed was very generous with his time and talent!  Many other Sponsors and Donors offered discounts and fabulous auction items, and we were overwhelmingly grateful – I wish I had room here to name each and every one of them.

Of course, the event was not without its challenges (SNOW? Really?). Trying to schedule meetings when the majority of the committee was available was like herding cats in a tornado. Full-time jobs, trips, kids’ sporting events and family emergencies added a touch of…excitement?!…to our implementation.

The most fascinating challenge revolved around the day (Friday) and the venue, both thoughtfully chosen. How could we get 350 children OUT of the school and 400+ adults INTO the school in a mere 3 hours? Not to mention the tables, centerpieces, auction items, decorations, Shutterbooth, and bars that needed to be set up?!

This is where we have to offer a HUGE shout-out to St. John’s Parish Day School.

As luck would have it, Michelle has a daughter enrolled in that school as well, and had worked on their Galas for the last 8 years, so she knew a few shortcuts. But nothing could have been achieved as easily without the flexibility and cooperation of Head of School Tiffany Nichols and the rest of the marvelous staff at SJPDS.

As one of our treasured Sponsors, they relocated dismissal and classes, loaned us items, and were an absolute pleasure to work with. They even allowed us access to the building early, so we could unload and start blowing up 1200 balloons!

Yes, I said one thousand, two hundred balloons, the majority of which were blown up using air as opposed to helium. (Luckily we were able to borrow air pumps so we could save our own “hot air” for the event!) 😀 The marvelous Jill Alli, also a MTH parent, spearheaded this effort and created beautiful towers and sculptures to add panache and color to the venue. Our children of all ages were enlisted to help, along with Hebron’s National Honor Society volunteers and numerous spouses and parents.

The excitement and energy during Viking Fest was palpable, and the guests enjoyed catching up with old friends, making new ones, and celebrating our 50th Anniversary!

One of the most popular offerings was our signature “Viketini” Martini, created by the Four Seasons’ own Aaron Joseph. His passion for mixology has earned him numerous awards, as well as a spot on WBAL-TV this morning! (It may have also contributed to the lowered inhibitions of guests who donned Viking Helmets and balloon sculptures as headgear by night’s end.) 🙂

County Executive Allan Kittleman was our VIP guest, who arrived with a proclamation for the school, and stayed long enough to help us put away tables and chairs at the end. Howard County is blessed to have such a resourceful and helpful man in office.

The event ended at 10pm, when Viking Fest-ers were prompted to continue the party at The Cellar at Chef Paolino Cafe,  where Lisa Passalacqua and her accommodating staff pampered and spoiled us, then donated a portion of their sales back to the school!

Viking Fest would not have been nearly as successful without the wonderful community of friends, volunteers, and supporters that surround Mt. Hebron High School. We may have asked a lot of you, but because of YOUR generosity we are able to give more than $25,000 back to the school and its children. And that’s quite an Anniversary gift.

Cheers to kicking off the next 50 years with a bang!

Thank you, Michelle, for writing the wonderful blogpost.  You and the entire committee were so focused, resourceful, energetic and very well organized to pull off such a successful event for Mt Hebron High School.  Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us as you wrote this post.  To the committee members, all of the volunteers, the sponsors, the businesses that donated service and products for your auction, St John’s Parish Day School, Shutterbooth, Outback Steakhouse, THANK YOU!  Truly a community effort that resulted in a fun evening and a phenomenal fundraiser!  Personally, for me, it was fantastic watching everyone have a great time together, definitely fun to document this outstanding event.  I was elated to see parents of some of my high school seniors that I’ve photographed in the past, it was like seeing family again! It was also a pleasure to meet many other Mt Hebron alumni! I hope I have the chance to see you all again! 🙂

I hope you enjoy the images!

Historic Ellicott City’s Midnight Madness…..so FUN!

17 12 2014

Greetings all! This is Tracy, Pam’s sidekick writing to you. We’ve been looking forward to sharing our experience of Ellicott City’s Midnight Madness this year! Wow! What a fantastic night! Despite the drizzling rain, we had a wonderful turnout! Thank you to all the awesome people that came to visit us at our studio, Pam Long Photography! We were graced with the presence of some local politicians- Alan Kittleman, Jon Weinstein and Courtney Watson!  They jovially participated in our fun photo booth! Check out our awesome pictures of these wonderful people!

Pam took some beautiful photographs of the annual tree lighting at the Howard County Visitors Center. The weather was no deterrent for the impressive crowd that came to witness this Historic Ellicott City tree lighting.  The stores were full of shoppers up and down Main Street! Journey for Junk was standing room only! There was a very festive air on the street that night that was contagious to all! We were hoping to be able to run up and down Main Street, taking photographs in each of the wonderful stores and restaurants, however, the good news is, we were too busy with beautiful visitors to leave the studio. Yea! Go Pam Long Photography! We were so happy to see many of our treasured clients and friends and were thrilled to meet many new people!

Hello Santa Claus! The Thomas Isaac Log Cabin, located on Upper Main Street, near the Wine Bin, was where Santa was visiting sweet little children at his satellite workshop. We love Santa! How wonderful!

The incredibly talented Madrigal Singers from both Mt. Hebron and Long Reach High Schools filled the night with beautiful music – Christmas carols that also filled me with joy and peace. We were also graced to hear The Pride of Baltimore Chorus! What a gift these ladies have! These talented women opened the evening, singing during the lighting of the Christmas tree. Thank you all for singing for us – what a blessing it was to all of us here in Ellicott City.

To all of our well-loved clients and friends – old and new – we loved spending time with you and creating adorable photos in our PLP photo booth. Thank you for the opportunity to photograph you and your families and for the gift of your friendship. We wish you a very safe and peaceful Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
