Founded in 1936, the Lancaster County Art Association is the County's oldest arts organization offering support for the visual arts through exhibition opportunities for artists as well as art classes, workshops, special programs, and opportunities for the community to see the work of local artists and artists from outside of Lancaster County in special exhibits.
On Sunday, July 22, our “ROADSIDE ATTRACTIONS” themed membership show in the Kauffman Gallery opened featuring artwork with places and things, on and off the road. Awards were presented at the opening reception. Shown above is long time member George Chapman’s painting “On the Road Again” which won the First Place Award in the Professional Category. This is George’s first First Place award!
In the Steinmetz Gallery Joanne Mark’s exhibit, “FIGURES: ANCIENT & CONTEMPORARY”, also opened on July 22. Joanne is exhibiting an assortment of her recent oil paintings of figures including pieces from her Asian figure collection. She states, “In the past year I have been exploring the use of a limited palette to create subtly toned figures on soft backgrounds. I have drawn much inspiration from my travels to Asia.” She has studied art at various locations including the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. Joanne has won prizes for her work at the Chester County Art Association and at the LCAA.
Both exhibits will continue through Thursday, August 16.
