It’s New to Us by Jean Stratton


PLACE OF JOY: “We want to make the gallery very alive, very exciting and a real part of the community. We want it to be a place with a program to involve the community, including the school children. We want to keep it fresh and new, a hub of energy. Above all, it should be a place of joy.” Founder and owner Herman Silverman and director Joan Perkes of The Silverman Gallery of Bucks County Impressionist Art, are shown at the gallery’s opening.

“Things happen if you are available for them to happen.”

That statement is a true reflection of Herman Silverman’s view of life, and it has certainly characterized his own willingness to reach out to new opportunities, both in his career as an entrepreneur and in his long-time role as a patron of the arts.


FAMILY AFFAIR: “We carry top brands of better quality offered at discounted prices. The lines we choose provide real value for the customer.” The Thompson family is proud of Rider Furniture’s longevity and fine reputation. Shown left to right are owners Bill and Sue Thompson, with their son, Bill, Jr., who has now joined the family business.
