In a room three steps down from part of a collection of pre-industrial tools, a thick hangman's noose rests in a case. Near it, the delicate script of a frontispiece announces The Apprentice's Handbook. On the gallery wall above the case, two prints from a series by 18th- century English artist William Hogarth titled "Industry and Idleness" show the fates of two apprentices. One, named Francis Goodchild, applies himself to the linen trade and becomes Lord Mayor of London. The second, Tom Idle, does not, and winds up seated in the back of a cart on its way to the gallows.

One of the sculptures in the new City Hall art gallery consists of rather rowdy dogs and other small animals in party hats, lounging around a table; toppled chairs serve as evidence of the raucous time they've had. A few nights ago, Gary Steuer, the city's chief cultural officer, was working late in his office when he heard noises from the gallery. Peeking in, he saw a worker setting the table and chairs aright. "No! No!" Steuer exclaimed to the startled worker. "You can't do that - it's art!"

This week's Day of the Dead doubled as a birthday for the Semilla Arts Intiative, a group that seeks to be a catalyst for social change through art. "Rooted in Ancestors," the first show at the initiative's new gallery space, A Seed on Diamond, opens today. El Dia de los Muertos, as it's called in Mexico, celebrates the lives of family and friends who have died and is observed on All Souls' Day, Nov. 2. "Rooted in Ancestors" arrives three days later as an interpretation of the holiday.

Albert Einstein made the cut. So did Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Golda Meir, and Sandy Koufax. But the National Museum of American Jewish History, whose new home is under construction on Independence Mall, will also honor some little-known Jewish Americans among the 18 selected for its "Only in America" hall of fame. Does the name Rose Schneiderman ring a bell? Isaac Leeser? In July, the museum invited the public to vote on (and learn about) 218 candidates for possible admission to its gallery.

MORE CHANGES are afoot at CBS3. For one, station executives have decided not to renew their contract with award-winning TV news reporter and former beauty pageant winner Syma Chowdhry . Chowdhry, who just had a baby, was very gracious about the split. "I am sad to leave such a great group of people, but I'm extremely excited about what's to come," she said. "With my contract coming to an end, it was the perfect time to take a look at my life and make some changes myself.

About 200 reporters, critics, and photographers from the United States and abroad descended on the Barnes Foundation on Wednesday as the clock ticked down toward the Saturday opening of the new gallery on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The assembled journalists toured galleries filled with the early modernist collection assembled by Albert C. Barnes and listened to foundation officials and board members tout the new building and the museum's controversial move from Merion to the city.

The developers who hope to transform the now-largely empty Gallery at Market East into a destination retail center made their pitch to City Council on Thursday for legislation needed to get the project going, but were waylaid by two other concerns: a living wage and making the previous occupants whole. The Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust, in partnership with California-based Macerich Co., has in mind a two-year, $575 million effort that would not only remake the aging mall, but enliven a dormant section of Market Street and transform the blocks between Eighth and 11th Streets from Market to Filbert Street.

ATLANTIC CITY - Late-fall afternoon sun streamed through the large windows of the airy space of the new Noyes Arts Garage of Richard Stockton College on Monday and illuminated the details of Ron Ross Cohen's storied pieces brilliantly. "This is an amazing space," Cohen, a sixty-something sculptor and designer who lives in Galloway Township, said as he explained the intricacies of Celestial Quest , a piece made of found objects and leather that tells the story of a lowly fisherman who falls in love with a princess far from his reach.

When the Barnes Foundation's exhibition "William Glackens" closes in February it will mark the end of the fifth special exhibition at the not-quite-so-spanking-new-anymore galleries on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. In the past, before the Barnes and its renowned collection of Renoirs, Matisses, Picassos, Cezannes, and other early modern works moved to Philadelphia in May 2012, entertaining such a sojourning special exhibition was simply unheard of. In its historic home in Merion, Montgomery County, the Barnes collection was wholly self-contained.

At their quarterly meeting with the boss last week, analysts who cover Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust pressed for details about rebuilding PREIT's Gallery shopping mall in Center City. "Did the Philadelphia City Council consider the public financing for the project in December, or is that still waiting to occur?" asked Banc of America Merrill Lynch Securities analyst Craig Richard Schmidt . "We're navigating the political winds in Philadelphia," PREIT chief executive Joseph Coradino said.

Ever since discount designer-apparel department store Century 21 signed on in April as an anchor tenant in the Gallery at Market East, retail analysts have speculated what else might move in. Among the names dropped: "fast fashion" brands such as Uniqlo and Forever 21. Maybe a high-end movie theater. Now that Gallery owner Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT) has struck a partnership with retail developer Macerich Co. - a joint venture to redevelop the struggling Center City shopping mall - industry observers have a better clue.

For a couple of hundred years now, it has been the light - its brilliance and refraction spoken about with reverence here - that has brought great artists and those unknown to West Cape May on the southern tip of New Jersey. A kind of stepsister to more chichi - and expensive - Cape May proper, West Cape May has long been evolving as an artisan's outpost where artsy mom-and-pop shops and galleries have been springing up in recent years. So it seems fitting that the 19-member Cape May Artists' Cooperative has opened its new gallery at 122 Sunset Blvd.

'Traditional, Modern, International" at Joan Perkes Fine Art is the commendable debut exhibition of a new gallery that opened its doors April 1 in a Lambertville neighborhood with a decidedly Cape May feel to it. From the start of this new venture, Perkes says, she was amazed at the phone calls she got from neighborhood people saying they had heard about her plans and wanted to know how they could help. Her enterprise was warmly welcomed as she set up shop in a large 1891 building where, once upon a time, spokes for automobile wheels were manufactured.
