Fred’s latest Blues and Jazz Paintings!
March 13, 2018
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.
