Amilia K Spicer

“West of East”

Amilia K Spicer, L.A. singer/songwriter, and Americana songstress, is returning to her native Pennsylvania roots to debut a photography collection compiled from trips taken to Southeast Asia, California and native Pennsylvania.

When asked about her photographic artwork, Spicer says, “We live in a constant state of over-stimulation. Our lives, brains, schedules are over worked and overbooked. Artists in all fields can be especially fatigued by this, because it can feel like our little blooms of beauty have no staying power in the nanosecond attention span. I am both guilty of this as a consumer and defiant of it as an artist. I guess I’m trying to create an oasis that will somehow allow people to take a breath and be taken over by something beautiful.”

C. K. Roulette

Slide Photography

A selection of Kib Roulette’s digitally remastered slide photographs is on display in the Studio. The show was orchestrated by his children who are very proud of their father’s work.

“He loved using slide film. At that time, colors were crisper and brighter than regular film… I feel like he has captured some interesting subjects and that even our family pictures are thoughtful,” – Kate Rice, daughter.

Jim McCabe

“Variations of Land and Sea”

Jim McCabe graduated from New Paltz State University with a degree in art education and from Yale University in 1974 with an architecture degree. He taught high school art in Wappinger’s Falls, New York. He was the co-owner of a commercial insulation business from 1978 until his move to Gettysburg in 2002 from Long Island, New York. He has painted with acrylics since 1965 and experiments with various styles. He also enjoys making model ships from scratch and has recently had a whaling ship model accepted into the permanent collection at the New Bedford Whaling Museum in New Bedford, Mass. He has received several awards for his artwork. He also does commission work. Jim is hoping that the paintings in this show will exemplify his passion for various interests, including the beauty of the rural community, the sea, the people in his life and classic cars. He and his wife, Brenda continue to live in Gettysburg, PA.

Showing in July

Amy Dreves

“Uniting Form and Function: Works from Past to Present”

“This exhibit of my work shows the connection between my past and present works, and how my work has changed from literal functioning objects to a more abstract exploration of form and function. My kinetic works sensitively address clever connections.”

Lisa Harman

“Portes et fenêtres dans l’âme française

Doors and Windows to the French soul”

Paula Kravits & Lisa Love

“Celebrate Color”

Paula Kravits

“The pieces in “Celebrate Color” represent the varied materials that I use. My concentration is on repetitive patterns. I use the pencils and ribbons to represent the mood of the picture and create custom work to match the needs of my audience.  Music and writing are also incorporated into some of my work to represent the art in our world.”

Lisa Love

“This show is a celebration of the enjoyment of two friends who have fun doing art both separately and together, and comparing notes on  their individual artistic adventures. When we are doing creative projects, we always think ‘let the fun begin!’ and we want to share that idea.”
