Bob Chaundy has another great firing!

It is always exciting to open the kiln and see how things turned out. Ceramics can be unpredictable but it seems to me that Bob’s firings always turn out great. Thank you Bob for firing my big platter (and various other things)! Come visit us at the Gallery at La Cigale to see our new work.

First Friday in May

Please join us on Friday May 4th 2018 from 5 pm to 8 pm at the Gallery at La Cigale. We are hosting a reception to introduce our Guest Artist for May, Paul Gallo and our Visiting Artist for May, June and July, George Reitbauer.

Plein air oil painting are Paul Gallo's primary area of interest.  Painting in a representational manner, he enjoys utilizing the tactile quality of oil paints and strives to make a painting that has confident brushwork, paint handling, and color.  Each painting is an honest effort to create a work of art.  Additionally he teaches painting, drawing and design at the college level, currently at Harrisburg Area Community.

George Reitbauer’s interest in photography has gone beyond traditional picture taking. From reconstructing antique cameras into light sources, to manipulating images with Photoshop and various art media, George transforms the photograph into a unique piece of art.  His most recent works include light paintings photographed from structures built in his studio in Annville, PA.
