Lancaster County Art Association


Lancaster County Art Quilt Project

May 1 - June 3 in the Kauffman Gallery
An exhibit and fundraiser for the LCAA

The work features locations from every area of the county in a variety of mediums and styles.
The 5" x 7" originals are matted with an 8" x 10" acid free mat.
At only $45 each, this is your chance to purchase something by your favorite artists and support the LCAA's fundraising efforts!

Members and non-members were invited to donate  5” by 7” unframed works on paper in any medium.
Artwork is for sale & benefits the LCAA

All work has been matted and is displayed on the wall in groups in a manner similar to that of a quilt.
The subject matter is hometowns, locations, events and things that are representative of Lancaster County. 
 The artwork is hung on the North, East, South and West walls of the Kauffman gallery.
The placement of the work on each wall matches the area of the County that the piece represents.
One hundred and forty-six pieces were donated including 12 artworks donated by children and teens.

Artwork created and donated by adult artists is priced at $45 each.
Artwork created and donated by children and teens is $20 each for the children’s artwork and $30 each for artwork by teens.

There are Judges Choice Awards presented on May 2 and People's Choice Awards which will be presented after the voting is completed.
A Purchase Award of $200 will be presented to the town that is represented by the most artwork in the exhibit.

Note that the “N", “E", “W", and "S “letters  accompanying the artworks’ identifying numbers are to indicate North, East, West and South to match the County areas which are represented by the artwork.

Dot Stepenaski

'Rocky Times', a pastel by Dot Stepenaski

Don't miss this exhibit of Dot's recent pastel paintings. Pastel is a difficult medium, but her style is direct and expressive. Dot's show features local landscapes of Lancaster County with a strong use of color. Her paintings of trees focus on expressive character, color and form. Dot teaches pastel at the LCAA and encourages her students to go beyond copying to give their paintings more depth and meaning.
