October’s First Friday
October 9, 2018
October’s First Friday and Artwalk weekend was busy, busy, busy! The weather, although warm, held out and Gallery Row was packed. We are celebrating the life and work of artist Mitch Lyons! Although we are terribly sad that he passed away in March, it was a special night with his family, who all showed up to see this final show of his work, both clay pots and his signature clay monoprints. We are also raising money to support the “Mitch Lyons Clay Scholarship Fund. This $500 annual scholarship will be given to a deserving clay high school student in Lancaster County. If you would like to donate to this cause please go to www.gofundme.com/mitch-lyons-clay-scholarship-fund. Definitely stop down to see the show!

Collector’s were treated to a talk from Robert Andriulli about his latest series of Urban paintings. They are based loosely on where he grew up, Paterson, New Jersey. It was so much fun to see sketches and studies for these paintings. Robert had fun getting into teaching mode again. Everyone was thrilled!
First Friday was so much fun! We featured Robert Andriulli with his latest, “Urban Perspectives”, as well as water-colorist Adam Bunting with “Personal Effects”. Linda Stetina added in with her latest Oils and it is a fabulous show. Interesting Fact: Adam and Linda were both students of Robert Andriulli when he taught at Millersville University. It was great fun to see them all together in a show!

First Friday was packed, but these paintings sold all week long and we entered First Friday with a Sell out!!! There is nothing better than that! Thanks to Lancaster County Art Lovers for the show of support. The weather held out and Gallery Row was busting at the seams.

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.
