August’s First Friday
August 10, 2017
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 !!!!

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.
March Celebrating Women Artists
March 4, 2017
Although we all thought Spring was here, an Arctic blast hit Gallery Row last night at First Friday’s Artist Reception. At least that is what everyone felt. It was a quiet night but we had been busy all day long. Artists Lynnette Shelley and Gail Troutman were celebrating with art collector Dawn, who purchased a piece from each of them! (pictured above) It is truly a great and colorful show, stop in and help us celebrate our women artists!!
