What a FABULOUS event!!  Tons of people came down to check out our Plein Air Painting event.  Lancaster City Art Galleries were busy as ever.  It was so much fun and everyone loved watching the various artists paint.  We will definitely do this again next year.  The weather was great, not a rain drop in sight!!  Thanks for the support Lancaster.

July First Friday

July 10, 2018

First Friday in July was beautiful!  Great weather,  great air, lots of people, and lots of art on Gallery Row!!!  We are featuring Scott Cantrell and Jennifer Hartz.  And our emerging artist is Olivia Honert.  Stop down and take a look at the show.  You won’t want to miss it.


“Saints You Might Need Some Day”,  by Fred Rodger (painter) and Mark Dennis (framer and sculptor).  It is a SOLD OUT 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.

But stop into see the show, as it will be up all month long.  We have lots of available paintings particularly from our highlighted artist Katheryn Stott and emerging artist Lindsay Alshouse.



May brought a busy and bustling downtown Lancaster and Gallery Row was filled with art lovers!!  As it is also Artwalk Weekend,  we had a steady stream of customers all weekend long and the weather was beautiful  for Saturday!  We are featuring new works from local artists Patricia Wertz and Eric Fowler.  We are also highlighting Lee Lovett and Nicole Michaud.  Eric also did onsite painting demonstrations for our Artwalk customers which our everyone loved!

April’s First Friday was busy and packed as the weather held out and we enjoyed seeing Gallery Row bustling with art lovers!  We are featuring Jackie Madsen with her favorite animal paintings, and Terry Wise with tabletop and still life.  Both shows are contemporary and vibrant.  Susan Gottlieb is our highlight artist and our emerging artist is Jacob Williard.


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!!


February’s Exhibit is always so much fun as we get to see another fabulous show from our own Sarah McRae Morton! (first picture) and then our Emerging Artist for the month is Devon Stackonis (last picture).  The Gallery was packed both Thursday and Friday evening.  It is always so nice to see Lancaster County and beyond come out in such force to support our artists.
