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

Eva Bender

Fresh!

"My main medium is watercolor. I work in a realistic manner, starting with a real subject matter and a drawing, then moving towards the abstract and mysterious. I start working with the paper very wet, adding layers of paint as the paper dries. I am open to accidents and surprises, enjoying the lack of control involved in working this way. I usually paint "on the spot", at home or outside, finishing the work almost entirely in one sitting. 


I am "self taught", which to me means without much formal art school training. I have learned from my mother, from growing up in a very art and design oriented society. I have learned from other artists, from my children, from everything around me, Art is what I do. I can't imagine not drawing and painting. It gives me a language, a way to express what I experience . Art deepens and clarifies, sometimes even saves your life."  
 E. Bender 2005

Robert Bitts

LEGACY OF TREES

ARTIST STATEMENT
"Sometimes, when I ask myself why I'm painting, a walk along Hammer Creek always renews my interest...There's a two or three mile stretch where it flows through the forest land, fallen woods, and a meadow area. I've been doing paintings of that part of the creek for thirty years now. I always see something new." Excerpted from an interview with Scott Campbell for Harrisburg Magazine in 2011, this quote still rings true for Robert Bitts. A preservationist at heart, Bob's sweeping acrylics on canvas capture the primitive beauty of stone, twig, boulder, and branch – earthly elements we all see each day but overlook. "I've been experimenting with size and scale, creating variations on a single scene from near and far, true to life or abstracted, in varying seasons - even incorporating a full year across one painting." 

BIOGRAPHY 
A 1969 Art Education graduate of Millersville University, Millersville, Pennsylvania, Bob has been painting ever since. Though he favored figurative subjects early in his career, he became influenced by the semi-abstract work of Richard Diebenkorn. "Just after college, about 1970 or 1971, I attended an exhibition of landscape paintings at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia," he says. "That show had a great impact on me. It blew off my proverbial socks. That's when I began to concentrate on landscapes."

Robert Bitts work has received awards and recognition, including a Purchase Awards from Washington and Jefferson National Painting Exhibition, Washington, DC, Reading Art Museum, Reading, Pennsylvania, and a First Prize in Painting from Art of the State, William Penn Museum, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. His work is held in numerous corporate and private collections including Lancaster General Health, Lancaster Museum of Art, Lancaster Newspapers, Donnelly Printing Company, and Armstrong World Industries all in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Capital Blue Cross, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and Core States Bank, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

David Zimmerman

ARTIST STATEMENT

"As a boy, I would spend days in my dad’s workshop making things.  I learned the basics of woodworking in a commercial cabinet shop.  Then I tried college; I tried truck driving; I went back to woodworking.  While working with an architect I was intrigued by the notion of designing and engineering my own work.  After years of learning and perfecting the craft, and the rules of traditional woodworking in hand, I’ve given myself the freedom to break them.  Opening myself to be creative and pushing to the edge, I’ve found joy in my work – each vessel a play in light and shadow. 

Warton Eshrick’s work was inspirational to me and I was fascinated by Wendel Castles layered and laminated work.  In 1980 I discovered a way to make wooden bowls with layered and laminated expanding concentric rings of wood, and I became obsessed with the process – still finding new ways to create with it.  My design is not a mental process.  It is not a planning process.  My best work comes by surprise – it happens while I am making it.  My wish is to communicate deeply in the non-verbal language which is beyond words."  D.Zimmerman 2006
