On February 2nd on Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, Phil the groundhog was summoned from his burrow to gaze upon the crowd gathered for the auspicious occasion. Upon seeing the many shadows cast by his faithful followers, Punxsutawney Phil, the “Seer of Seers, the Prognosticator of all Prognosticators” declared that there must be six more weeks of winter.
Not so, say I.
On Friday, February 24, the art galleries of Columbia, Pennsylvania celebrate their monthly “Fourth Fridays” and SPRING & SUMMER are coming, well in advance of Punxsutawney Phil’s perspicuous prognostication – phew.
“Rivertowne Botanical,” featuring a selection of my fine art floral, botanical, and landscape images will be on exhibit at Jonal Gallery, 653 Locust Street (between 6th and 7th Streets, across the street from Mt. Bethel Cemetery), Columbia, Pennsylvania 17512 from 5PM to 9PM.
The exhibit runs from February 24 through March 18, Saturdays from 10AM to 5PM and Sundays from 12PM to 5PM. Additionally, on Thursday, March 8, I will be doing a “Night at the Gallery” presentation / discussion from 7PM to 9PM. Due to limited seating, reservations for “A Night at the Gallery” are suggested (717-681-9400).
Come celebrate an early spring with us!

The Opening Reception for the York Art Association’s Rottler Award Selection Exhibit was held on Sunday, June 19, 2011. The exhibit features two works by each of 42 members.
The selection Juror was Amy S. Hammond, Exhibitions Manager/Preparator at the Susquehanna Art Museum. Ms. Hammond has also curated exhibitions for the Handprint Identity Project at Elizabethtown College and for the DOSHI Gallery of Contemporary Art at The State Museum of Pennsylvania.
The exhibit guide offers a brief history of the Rottler Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts:
“The Rottler award for Excellence in the Visual Arts is made possible throught a bequest to the York Art Association by the late E. Kurt Rottler, a devoted member and President of the Board of Directors from 1965 through 1970.
The Rottler fund provides a $300 prize to each of the five winners of this prestigious members-only exhibit and funds awards for other shows throughout the year. The fund also supports awards to York College of Pennsylvania art students and inner-city art programs run by Yorkarts.
The Rottler endowment is the perfect example of the power of a bequest to guarantee the future success and growth of our association in particular and the visual arts in general. Thanks to the bequest by E. Kurt Rottler, the York Art Association has been able to award almost $100,000 for excellence in the visual arts.
Thank you to all of the artists who submitted the outstanding entries for this exhibit, and congratulations to our five winners of the Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts. We look forward to their group exhibit in 2011.”
Vulcania Graphics & Fine Art joins the York Art Association in saluting the 2011 winners of the Rottler Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts:
