Fred Rodger hit us with his latest series of Blues and Jazz paintings!! He rarely does many at once and we currently have 6 new paintings in the mix this month!! Stop in and take a look. They won’t be around for long. Fred does all the artwork for Lancaster’s Roots and Blues Festival each year.
First Friday in March was a windy, rainy, evening that tried to put a damper on our First Friday Artist Reception. We did have a really nice, but small, group come through. Shown above, Featured Artists Catherine Suttle and Katherine Horst, and on right, Emerging Artist, Patricia Renna. We reacted by deciding to have another opening over this past weekend during Lancaster’s Roots and Blues Festival. All of our women artists came down to do a RE-DO and it was a ton of fun, with many of our art lovers coming in to meet our artists.
This year’s Coffee Crawl was absolutely packed up and down Gallery Row! Thank you to all who came out and enjoyed the ART, and of course the sweets and treats!!
Thank you to everyone who supported our Gizmo and Leroy Fundraiser which went directly to help VCA Animal Hospital give surgeries to pets whose owners couldn’t afford them.
