Experience Local PA Art In Our Incredible Gallery

Lancaster Arts Hotel Art

“Art to me is about discovery….I encourage [my students] to not get 'precious' with their work, [to] be ready to always risk it for something new. Once we get too precious, then we stop growing the work. It is a metaphor for life.”
- Susan J. Gottlieb, Lancaster artist

Susan Lapp

As a flautist and artist, my art and music are very closely related in that with both, I strive to create not the exactness of nature or notes, but a mood. Despite all of nature's beauty, a delicate flower, a drop of water on a leaf after the rain, it is not a perfect image I try to paint, but an inner feeling - abstract, yet real. To look for something that isn't there, yet creating an image in your mind.

 My paintings are about colours, textures, always nature - sea, land or sky. My inner experience, not to be felt for that is mine, but to paint it into an image for you to experience in your own way. My mixed media works are the more intricate, complicated side of me. They represent the chaos of life, again, not the exactness of nature, but a mood. Out of chaos, comes a calmness once the work is completed, as in one's life. Each piece is a painting, cut by hand, each new miniature square revealing one small image of nature, reassembled to create an essence. Then, different objects are added. Bronze, silver, gold, precious stones, shells, hand blown glass, wire, whatever my mind sees to enhance the scene giving life and energy.


 Susan has a B.F.A. from Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec and now lives in Guelph., Ontario. She is also a professional flautist, teacher, composer and was curator of Art-In-Guelph Gallery until 2003. Her memories of travels throughout Canada, United States, parts of Europe, South America and Asia mark the varied moods and feelings in her art. Her paintings are found in private and corporate collections throughout Canada and U.S.

"Abstracts have imagination.

Imagination has life.

Life has colours.

Colours have energy.

Energy has emotions.

Emotions are what make us human." - S.L.
