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

DREAMS AND SEDUCTION ARE THEMES in this most recent collection of paintings by Todd Lehman, who

as a boy created dreams from his windup toys. These days his toys are the many layers of experience
from which to pull inspiration for his work. He introduces the collection this way:
“At the top of the steps that went up to the attic floor there was a cubbyhole that became my hideout -
especially on rainy days. There was one small window in the cubbyhole that became my window on my
world of strange creatures large and small, and a window on valiant adventures at sea and in jungles. It was a place where I could make up dreams, some of them the windup dreams that came popping out of my windup toys... The windup toys have gone wherever windup toys go when they get old, but the dreams have not stopped...they are still with me."

Curvaceous and daring, her sketchbook imagery includes mostly nude studies exploring abstraction geometrically,
which often translated in to her hand glazed tile mosaic designs for murals and wall hangings.
A master of proportion and scale these works began as sketches on paper, each tile was hand cut, textured, glazed, and
fired typically in bright oranges, yellows, turquoise and green, the language of sixties. Large mural pieces were laid out on
the ground like puzzles at her feet before being hoisted up to Fran on scaffolding for installation. Smaller wall pieces and tables were commissioned for office buildings, clubs, and private residences, and her work was often published
in décor magazines.
studied in Oakland at the California School of Arts and Crafts, and in San
Francisco at Rudolph Schaefer School of Design before moving to Miami, Florida. She spent the mid-century in Miami, a
mecca for style and architecture, and became well known for her work. Her commissions included Miami International
Airport, Miami, Florida, First Federal Savings and Loan Association, Key West, Florida, Bacardi Pavilion Bar, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Rockefeller Center Ticket Office, New York, New York, among numerous others.

David Zimmerman


"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
