Lancaster City Celebrated the Arts with the Governor’s Art Awards and our own Mark Dennis created a Bust of Mayor Rick Gray!  We thank our Mayor for all that he has done for Lancaster and especially the arts!


October Artwalk !

October 7, 2017

Today Michael Scotko and Ken Karlic did demonstration painting!  It was AMAZING to see them work right in front of us all.  Artwalk Saturday was so much fun and with perfect weather in hand,  lots of people came down to Lancaster’s Art Scene!

October’s First Friday was BUSY !  Great Weather, Great People, Great Art !!!  Gallery Row was hopping and we have a wide variety of artists this month.  Michael Scotko (Pastels),  Ken Karlic (Watercolor), Dave Krantz (Watercolor), and Jonathan Murray is our Emerging Artist who also happens to be this year’s winner of the CX Carlson Summer Residency Program!

Susan Gottlieb’s opening was a smash!  One of the busiest September First Friday’s that we have seen.  This year Susan traveled to Cuba, India, and Italy for inspiration on her latest show.  She has also published a book on these journeys.  Stop down anytime to take a look.  Her work will be up through September 30th.

August’s First Friday was hopping on Gallery Row as we featured artists Jill Peckelun and Nicole Michaud. Our Emerging artist was this year’s CX Carlson Scholarship Winner, Ciana Malchione.  Lancaster’s art community was out in full force!

July First Friday

July 11, 2017

We had a little rain on First Friday evening but that didn’t damper the crowd, which flocked out to see Stuart Dunkel and his infamous mice paintings!  He received a great write up in the paper and everyone loved meeting him, with his t-shirt that said,  “Saving the World one Mouse at a time!”.   Our highlight wall had a mix of artists this month, including Aubrey Brown (pictured)  and we also celebrated our Red Raven Scholarship winner,  Ryan O’Connell on our emerging artist wall.

We had so much fun with our “surprise” party for our own Robert Andriulli!  He recently retired from Millersville University, where he taught painting for many years. Robert has had a huge impact on so many of our artists.  Many of the group shown above have studied under him.  We wish him the best,  and with all of this free time, are expecting lots of new paintings to be pouring in to Red Raven !!!!

June brought the first “Perfect Weather”  First Friday of the season!  Downtown Lancaster was packed with artists and art lovers combined.  Summer is officially here! We featured Jean Zaun, Highlighted Glass Artist Carlee Seele, and our Emerging Artist is Scholarship Winner Sydney Shuba.

First Friday and Gallery Row were packed last night.  It was a cold rainy day but dried off just enough that art lovers came out for the beginning of ArtWalk Weekend.  Don’t miss this show as Dorothy Frey and Jenny Germann have stunning shows.  We are highlighting Lee Lovett and our Emerging artist is Samantha Dillman.  Artwalk Weekend hours extend both Saturday and Sunday!

Gallery Row was booming First Friday evening.  Lots of people came down for the show and we are so excited that Lancaster’s Art Scene is so well supported.
