TENTH ANNUAL KALEIDOSCOPE AWARDS FOR FINE ARTS
Kaleidoscope, a Celebration of the Arts in Elizabethtown, was held in 1998 for the benefit of the Elizabethtown Public Library and featured music, visual and literary arts. The Kaleidoscope Awards are presented to provide recognition for the recipients, the teachers, parents, and librarians who support the arts in the Elizabethtown community.
Lynden Gallery, alongside the families for which the awards are named, take pride in celebrating the work of these accomplished graduates. It is our hope in the future to raise an endowment toward a scholarship fund to support the students’ post-graduate studies in the arts.

Long retired from Elizabethtown College in 2011 after receiving an Honorary Doctor of Human Letters. She is recognized for her constant enthusiasm for the arts and mentoring of young women.
The NED O. WERT Kaleidoscope Award of Visual Arts recipient EMILY VANDERMEY is the daughter of Stephanie and Jim VanderMey. She will be attending Point Park University for her bachelor’s degree in multimedia. “This major will allow me to utilize my skills as an artist while still becoming marketable.” No matter where her career takes her, she fully intends to continue work as an Artist. Ned O. Wert taught at Elizabethtown Area High School from 1967-1972. Represented by the Lynden Gallery since 2000, he has established a foundation of loyal collectors, many of which are his past students.
