I T ’ S H A R D T O P U T A B O U N D A RY around the term creativity. What does it mean to be creative? Whether you put pen to paper, brush to canvas, or foam to latte, we believe you’re building an experience. You’re making something that brings joy, invokes questions, elevates an issue, or communicates the beauty of life around us—be it for yourself or for the world. At Fig, we get up in the morning ready to bring new ideas to life. We express ourselves through visual communication and living out our mission—one click, stroke, swipe, word, and image at a time. The City of Lancaster is always changing and offering new viewpoints for those who live, work, play, and visit. Our City’s educational institutions and leaders are putting innovative thinking first. In this issue, we call them our Artistic Anchors. They offer a supportive foundation for new and thriving creativity. We also pay homage to inspiring individuals who live out their mission to enrich, engage, and spark joy. Since we all experience, react

to, and interpret art differently, this set of creatives ensures there is something accessible to everyone. The impact and influence of their work is endless. We invite you to become immersed in the wonder of creativity and engage with these, and other, inspirational thinkers, artists, and innovators within the Lancaster community. You may even find yourself moved to make something beautiful, too. DEBORAH BRANDT & THE FIG INDUSTRIES TEAM

F R E S H FA C E Welcoming new businesses to the City of Lancaster.

Fresh Face: The Studio/Recentered Pieces “IT’S IN MY NATURE to share this excitement and energy—I love creating things, and always have.” Lori Sturgess opened The Studio this month to bring her custom centerpiece sculptures and beautiful linens to Lancaster.

Savannah College of Art & Design, and purchase her first company. Lori began to expand her passion by launching a custom painted linens company which grew to eventually have 1,800 accounts around the country.

As a McCaskey grad, Lori is pleased to be back home to share her creative passion with the community. “Lancaster is a hotbed of arts and music,” says Lori. “I hope to add something new to the scene.”

After 13 years of full-time wholesale production while completing consulting, sales, and marketing work for several international companies, Lori began creating sculptures in partnership with three other artists to form the company that would become Recentered Pieces.

Lori has her degree from the University of Georgia in textile design which led her to chair arts festivals, teach students at

arrangements rises. Her centerpieces are available for rent for large corporate events, dinner parties, and for purchase as personal gifts or additions to private collections. “I see beauty in many salvaged items and enjoy creating new pieces that celebrate their history and what they can be now. I hope they inspire creative thought in those that observe them and I love to help people tap their own creativity by hosting workshops.” Lori welcomes all to visit The Studio, bringing together both Recentered Pieces and Lori Betts Ltd in Lancaster.

M I K E M O L L A was blown away by the caliber of faculty and students he met when he first toured the campus at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design. “The soul of this college is remarkable,” says Molla. “I found it exhibited on the walls and in the studios I visited, but also in the intangibles, like the programs and collaborations the students and faculty were involved in with the larger community.” Molla began his tenure as PCA&D President this summer, taking the helm from President Mary Colleen Heil, who retired after 26 years. He is set to lead the College, which draws some of the brightest young artists from the region and beyond, and cultivate a new generation of creative minds, business owners, trailblazers, and leaders. Molla comes from a long and successful track at the prestigious Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. When Molla visited the college, faculty immediately demonstrated to him their focus on the students. “I could see the faculty members’ commitment to their students in how they introduced me to the creatives they work with, in the way they knew their students and challenged them, how they imparted their life lessons, and how they communicated in new and engaging ways with their students.” The faculty at PCA&D are all professional artists with deep connections in the regional, national, and global art world. Having faculty and alumni with successful careers and influence on the arts and creative scenes in cities far and wide helps PCA&D, which offers a competitive, four-year, studio-focused BFA. PCA&D’s gallery, located in its main building at 204 N0rth Prince Street on the edge of Lancaster’s Gallery Row, hosts a rotating list of cutting-edge exhibitions curated from the US and around the world. “When you look at our alumni, and the kinds of jobs and careers graduates


move into, you can see how a BFA is being used in so many imaginative, transformative, and catalytic ways,” says Molla. Molla is excited to see PCA&D graduates working to push the creative boundaries in the fields of communications, medicine, technology, and even robotics with their BFA degrees. And what better place to cultivate the thought leaders and emerging artists of the future than right here in Lancaster? “Lancaster is a city that represents a culturally rich history with a new vision of the modern American urban environment,” he observes. “And students from across the country are becoming the creative leaders and workforce in these types of cities. Cities like Lancaster are cultivating and containing amazing talent, so that you don’t have to go to places like New York and Chicago and LA to find quality and leading industry partners.” “Lancaster is a lot like Baltimore insofar as we have several colleges right here in the city,” says Molla. “I’m excited to explore new ways for us to all work collaboratively with each other for the greater good of this city, and the students who will shape our future.”

Warm Welcome, Mike Molla, President, PCA&D

With more than 10,000 students studying with world-class faculty throughout the Lancaster region, it is not surprising to see Lancaster’s exciting, collaborative, and diverse future.

Warm Welcome, Dr. Daniel A. Wubah, President, Millersville University MILLERSVILLE UNIVERSITY (MU), may have a campus in the suburbs, but this school is making a profound mark on the City of Lancaster in so many ways, particularly the arts. With its newly minted Tell School of Music and energetic new president, MU is making waves for both its student body and our community by providing world-class cultural opportunities and a student-focused approach to arts education that empowers young artists to become the next generation of creative leaders. Plus, the university’s dual performing arts centers, The Ware and Winter Centers, are fast becoming Lancaster County’s home for the cultural arts. The 2018-19 season at both the Ware and Winter Centers will host more than 100 events, from Flamenco dance to Macbeth. The cornerstone of it all is Steinman Hall, a state-of-theart performance facility at The Ware Center, which hosts dance, theater, and music performances from around the globe. Upstairs in the atrium is Club 42, an intimate jazz and cabaret club where acts like the Colombian-born harp virtuoso Edmar Castaneda and the ebullient global ensemble Mwenso

and the Shakes play while audience members can enjoy the full bar and small plates from Merrymaker Catering. A full family-centered theater, music, and dance program caters to the youngest aesthetes among us. On campus, the Tell School of Music is able to provide scholarships for students pursuing careers in music, bring in outstanding performers and experts in different fields of music to work with students, and provide resources for programs in the community, made possible by a $2 million endowment from Lancaster philanthropist Patrick J. Tell. The on-campus Winter Center features a diverse lineup of student performances throughout the school year. This will be Millersville President Daniel Wubah’s first school year here in Lancaster. He comes from a long career in executive level college administration, most recently at Washington & Lee University in Virginia. On his first visit to MU, Wubah was immediately impressed by the connection he witnessed between the university and the Lancaster community. “The Ware Center is one of the strongest and most unique aspects

of the University as it shows the bond here between the university and the community and also provides our students with incredible opportunities to witness and learn from masters of their crafts,” says Wubah. “It’s different from being on a campus where you just consume art shows. Our students get to see the life of an artist through unique opportunities to meet and work with the artists who come through our performing arts centers.” Wubah’s academic expertise is in microbiology, but his passion for the arts is deep-rooted. Wubah grew up around a family of artists in Ghana. His uncle, older brother, and three of his cousins were all artists. “Personally, arts mean a great deal to me because of my family and my upbringing,” he says. “But professionally, I believe art is fundamental in a well-rounded education and invaluable to all communities. And here at MU, art is woven in the entire fabric of the campus.” Wubah is a drummer, and would like to follow in the footsteps of his predecessor by joining in some of the university’s campus bands this school year.

PRESENTS I N 19 3 3 , L A N C A S T E R B I B L E C O L L E G E (LBC) was founded in Downtown Lancaster, just a few blocks from where The Trust Performing Arts Center sits in the City’s arts district today. LBC has since moved three miles north of the city center to a beautiful 100acre suburban campus. When its newly formed Music, Worship, and Performing Arts department was experiencing unprecedented growth in 2013, a local family purchased the historic Lancaster Trust Company building and promised it to the college if they could turn it into a viable center for the arts. Thus, The Trust Performing Arts Center was born. From the unassuming entrance to the building, you would never know you were stepping into a Beaux-Arts masterpiece designed by C. Emlen Urban. (Rumor has it that Urban designed the bank to resemble the original Penn Station in New York). Once home to the region’s largest bank, The Trust Performing Arts Center’s Great Hall boasts ornate 50-foot vaulted ceilings and astounding live acoustics. This plays a major role in the concerts they present. “Over the past four years, we have learned what sort of artists sound best in the Great Hall,” says Dr. Robert Bigley, Director. “When we get it right, the experience is unforgettable.” The Trust’s Fifth Anniversary Season in 2018 – 2019 features favorites from previous years such as the Grammynominated New York Polyphony, Lancaster pianist Christopher Shih and friends, Van Cliburn medalist Daniel Hsu, and the newly christened Fischoff winners Donald Sinta Quartet. “The pinnacle of this season comes this December,” says Bigley, “when we present the preeminent a cappella vocal ensemble The King’s Singers during their 50 th Anniversary Tour.”

The Black Box Theatre, an intimate 90seat space, provides center stage for local theatre companies. This year’s series includes the hilarious “The Man Who Came to Dinner”; a two-person, familyfriendly rendition of “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”; as well as the oneman show, “Bonhoeffer in Prison.” Across the hall, an elegant wood-paneled room, originally built as the bank’s executive office, provides the perfect setting for the two-man show “Freud’s Last Session.” Downstairs in the Square Halo Gallery, The Trust hosts a popular lecture series by The Row House Forum and displays various art exhibits rotating on a bimonthly basis. Named in Fig’s 10th anniversary edition as one of the decade’s game-changers, The Trust has lived up to its mission “To honor God by encouraging excellence in the work of student and professional artists and by enriching [their] community through inspiring, challenging, and redemptive experiences.” The impact of The Trust inspired its Director to begin a similar series at Lancaster Bible College. “The launch of our Arts & Culture Series on LBC’s main campus is truly a testament to the success we’ve experienced downtown,” says Bigley. “The college’s 1,200-seat Good Shepherd Chapel allows us to bring artists such as The 5 Browns, Julliard-trained siblings who travel with five Steinway grand pianos, and the Charleston based roots/jazz ensemble Ranky Tanky.” The students of the college Chorale will share the stage with Ranky Tanky, who topped the Billboard jazz charts with their self-titled debut album in late 2017.

Cristian Teneo Winner of the LCDS Excellence in the Visual Arts Award

“LCDS encourages me to be who I want to be.”

F O R C R I S T I A N T E N E O, art has always been a constant—no matter how much he’s been challenged academically over the years at Country Day. Whether it was sketching alongside his class notes, or using a camera, art has always helped him voice his perspective in some form or another. It has allowed Cristian to see the world through various lenses, and appreciate the work of others at the same time. Throughout his senior year at Lancaster Country Day School, Cristian kept a

22

journal that reads “Art is for Everybody” on the front cover. “It has become a tool for me to merge my drawing and writing, to develop ideas, and document my inspirations and aspirations,” says Cristian. “Especially so as I move on from LCDS after graduation.” LCDS gave Cristian the opportunity to study abroad in Spain and to stand in the same room as Pablo Picasso’s painting ‘Guernica’ which is where he realized that he wanted to pursue art as a major in college and make it a career.

725 HAMILTON ROAD 717.392.2916 L ANCASTERCOUNTRYDAY.ORG

Cristian will be attending Dickinson College this fall, where he intends to double major by pairing studio art with a field in the social sciences. “I will continue to explore both academically and creatively, and I hope to use art to help the communities I have been a part of and the ones I have yet to learn about.” To find out more about the exceptional education environment at Lancaster Country Day School, please visit lancastercountryday.org.

GIVING BACK Making a difference in the lives of others.

Giving Back: Garrett Moore GARRETT MOORE CONSIDERS HIMSELF TRULY BLESSED, and feels compelled to give to others because of the people who have poured into his life. Garrett approaches his life and work with gratitude, humility, faith, and curiosity. As a trained visual artist with a BFA degree from PCA&D and as a musical performing artist, creating and making in various forms is a huge part of who Garrett is. Garrett’s role as Creative Arts Specialist at Friendship Heart Galley is to connect the artists with the rest of Lancaster. Friendship Heart Gallery is an extension of Friendship Community, which provides

value through artistic expression to artists with intellectual disabilities and autism. The artists are empowered to create, learn, and collaborate. Garrett is passionate about helping his artists see the world around them and feel seen in return. He takes his artists out with the intention of forging connections and collaboration between the artists and individuals and organizations in the community. Garrett approaches life like an artist. “When an artist looks at a chair, he’s not supposed to assume he knows the chair, but to see it like a child seeing a chair for

the first time. One of the things I’ve been learning and trying to put into practice is not assuming that I know my community, but to see it anew, to keep looking deeper and then deeper still,” Garrett says. This way of approaching people is just one of the ways Garrett is able to give back in Lancaster. With the gift of helping people feel seen and the passion to foster connection through art and relationship, Garrett is a true ambassador of Friendship who is giving back to the city he loves.

Historic Old Town


T H E F I R S T T I M E you stroll through the winding streets of Lancaster’s historic Old Town neighborhood you may never notice the secret gardens, passageways, and shared common spaces hidden behind its beautiful homes. You might also never know this area was condemned to be bulldozed just a few decades ago. Home to some of the most historically significant sites in the City, Old Town is full of little surprises. Inside Duke, Lime, Christian, and Church Streets you will find many historical treasures including the only original 18 th century stable in Lancaster, the preserved colonial home of famous American portrait artist Jacob Eichholtz, and the brick house Milton Hershey shared with his mother in the late 19 th century. But in the 1970s, Old Town was nothing more than a badly deteriorating section of the City where the area’s rich history was buried. That is until private investors including local architects John deVitry and Thomas dePaul and Lancaster steel executives Dale and Calvin High took it upon themselves to revitalize the neighborhood as part of a massive restoration project. The results: a walkable showpiece of modern living where incredibly old and brand new properties sit side by side on winding brick streets, and where each home’s garden is prettier than the next. James Mummert, the Neighborhood Association’s historian, has lived in Old Town since 1981 and witnessed its transition from restoration project to hot real estate market. Old Town

is almost 100% residential (the Fig Industries building on South Duke is one of the only commercial properties in the neighborhood). Residents come together for spring dinners, potluck summer picnics, monthly gatherings at local restaurants, and “clean sweep” days of neighborhood beautification. Cathy Innacola, Chair of the Old Town Home and Garden Tour, moved into a home on Duke Street when she and her husband decided to downsize in their retirement years. “My favorite thing about our home is that it is surrounded by trees, and I can see three church steeples from my backyard,” says Cathy. Cathy’s home shares a private cul de sac with her neighbors, where a collection of vibrant gardens and courtyards converge under cover of lush trees and the steeples at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Crossroads Mennonite Church, and Lord’s House of Prayer. Residents today hail from all over the country and all stages of life, drawn to the neighborhood by its peace and quiet, historic charm, and access to Downtown Lancaster. Walk just a few shady blocks north on Duke Street and you’re in the heart of it all with easy access to delicious takeout from East King Culinary, Silantra, and King Street Cocina. Most residents do their shopping by foot at Central Market and meet up for over-the-hump Wednesdays at nearby watering holes like Annie Bailey’s and Tellus360. “We also live so close to four amazing bakeries: Goldie’s, La Dolce Vita, Barbaret, and Ric’s Bread,” adds Cathy. “And ice cream at Lancaster Sweet Shoppe.” What could be sweeter than that?

LANCASTER

Landmarks F U LT O N T H E AT R E Long before television, long before radio, and long before motion pictures, entertainment was found in local taverns and meeting halls throughout the city of Lancaster. According to James S. Henke, former Millersville University professor of theater and communications, there were more than 60 such establishments in Lancaster prior to 1800. The venerable Fulton Hall wasn’t commissioned and designed by renowned theater architect Samuel Sloan until 1852. This stately Italianate structure has remained at the forefront of entertainment in the city ever since its inception. Theater interiors, like fashion design, fall in and out of favor. Within 21 years of its debut, the Fulton Hall was ready for a makeover and the owner retained Philadelphia architect Edwin Forrest Durang to give it a fresh new look: Victorian. Replete with wall to wall carpeting, upholstered seats, gas chandeliers, and a new name, the theater met the expectations of the discerning audience. By the early 1900s there were more than a dozen formal theaters in the city including the The Old Lady of Prince Street, Orange Street Opera House, the Colonial Theater, and the famous Woolworth Building rooftop garden with a seating capacity of 715! The rapid growth of competitors forced Fulton Opera House owner Charles Yecker to retain Lancaster architect C Emlen Urban to redesign the interior one more time. The Victorian motif was considered outdated and Urban replaced it in 1904 with the timeless neoclassical style that we enjoy today. The exterior and interior have withstood the test of time and continue to awe the audiences young and old alike; a true testimony to sustainable LancasterHistory.org design principles!

RLPS Architects believes in the appreciation and honoring of architecturally significant buildings in the City. Look for more lancaster landmarks in this year’s issues of Fig Lancaster and on your journeys around town!

Women of Lancaster

The City of Lancaster is growing and changing like never before. We believe that small business will always be the backbone of our economy and, more than ever before, women are leading the way. In partnership with our friends at BSSF, we are proud to introduce you to another dedicated female entrepreneur.

Joyce Graham Heberlein L A N C A S T E R G A L L E R I E S , managed by Joyce Graham Heberlein, has been providing Lancaster with fine art, framing, and restoration services since 1984. The artists and staff respect the arts and have a dedication to providing quality original work. Joyce has always been captivated by the boldness of mid 20th century painters due to their unique perspective and use of color, texture, and abstracted observation. She has chosen artists to feature over the years based not only on how they create art in a unique, alternative way, but because of their honesty and passion for their work. A big issue, noted Joyce, is the change in habits of the consumer. Access to viewing art and conversing about art is different today. It’s a challenge to maintain the values of fine art that go beyond art as a product in today’s fastpaced environment. However, Joyce mentions that the greatest reward is still being able to share conversation with artists and non-artists. The decision to locate the gallery in Lancaster City in the late 1980s happened around the same time as the art scene began to thrive. She sees the legacy of Lancaster arts being defined by the artists and their work. Lancaster Galleries is honored to play a role in defining the future of art in the community. Joyce wants people to take time, in the now, to observe, engage with, and be inspired by the artwork all around them.

AT T H E S T O N E INDEPENDENT SCHOOL, T H E WO R K M AT T E R S . In its inaugural year, Stone students differentiated polynomials, applied game theory to decision science, built trebuchets, and grappled with the real-world applications of calculus. They recorded podcasts and films, composed policy briefs on gun ownership in America, practiced typological analysis on grave markers at the Shreiner-Concord cemetery, wrote and applied for grants, built 15 foot art installations, researched the finite elements of design, studied physics and chemistry at Millersville, and mastered calculus at Franklin & Marshall and Latin at the Lancaster Center for Classical Study.

Stone students organized the March For Our Lives, met with Mayor Sorace, City Councilman Ismail SmithWade-El and Representative Lloyd Smucker, completed service projects with the Lancaster Conservancy and the Junior League, pitched business plans to local entrepreneurs, and spent class periods at Lancaster Central Market, Gallery Row, the Ware Center, the Lancaster Science Factory, Lancaster Community Foundation, the Lancaster Historical Society, The Islamic Center, and dozens of other locations around the city.

Orchestra, marched in the Parade On The Arts, released albums on iTunes and on Spotify, completed a Spartan Run, and even traveled to Nepal over Spring Break.

Stone students competed in the Lancaster-Lebanon League playoffs and the PIAA District and State tournaments, performed in the Harrisburg Youth Symphony

If you’d like to learn more about what Lancaster’s fastest growing school is up to this year, please email us at admissions@stoneindependent.org.

That’s not bad for the first year. It all begins with extraordinary teachers like Susan Gottlieb— teachers who are experts in their field, who ask their students to solve complex problems, and who offer authentic, “real world” work for their students. Because at Stone, the work matters.

“Everyone experiences the world a little differently.�


Lancaster City Heroes Willow Valley Communities celebrates those making Lancaster a better community.

To watch Tammy Shertzer complete her tasks as a full-time volunteer with the School District of Lancaster, you might think she’s simply getting things done. Organizing books, escorting students to recess, and keeping children safe are part of every school day. But spend a little time watching her more closely, and you’ll soon observe that something very special is happening. Tammy, who has Down syndrome, volunteers alongside teacher Deb Glenn, whose classroom serves children with special needs. It’s not your typical classroom. While Tammy effectively performs her work every day, it’s the way she does it that makes all the difference. Whether it’s redirecting a child with a favorite toy, tenderly feeding them, or just holding

a trembling hand, Tammy’s heart is keenly in tune with her students. She instinctively knows how to meet each child’s individual needs. Tammy naturally understands that everyone is experiencing the world a little differently. Says teacher Deb about Tammy, “She brings a different perspective. She has a patience for what someone needs and what it’s like to be in their shoes. It’s never ever about Tammy—it’s always about everyone else.” Tammy brings a pure, selfless spirit to everything she does, every day. A spirit that adds a deeper, more meaningful connection to the students she serves in Lancaster city. It’s that spirit that enables those students to accomplish so much and to know and feel just how loved they are.

Red Raven Art Company F R E D R O D G E R is a painter who works almost exclusively in acrylics while dabbling in sculpture using found objects, metal junk, and even bronze. “My work only reflects what I’m thinking about or find interesting at the moment. I stop the series when I feel it has ‘run its course’ and then I move on.” A R T H A R R I N G T O N is a mixed media artist who’s been painting his whole life. “My artwork creates in me a unique feeling, one where I am able to transform an idea that is solely mine into a piece that belongs to the world.” R E G I N A M A R T I N uncovers the extraordinary in everyday objects and nature through her painting. She uses acrylics to layer paint and scumble, adding depth. “My approach to art making is closest to expressionism—responding to the emotion created by brush strokes, color, line, shape, tension rather than to actually represent external reality.” L E E L O V E T T, manager of Red Raven Art Company, paints in oils because she likes to move things around and comes back to her paintings again and again. “Painters are the current historians of our times. We document our lives, what is around us, what is important to us, the unusual perspective, or perhaps the unique light.” P A T R I C I A W E R T Z paints landscapes, still life and figure, and narrative in oils. She worked

as a graphic designer before turning to painting full time. “Painting, or for that matter any creative effort, offers us an opportunity to see the world differently. To me, it is life giving to follow your passion.” J A C K I E M A D S E N ’ S first love is drawing. Her paintings are heavily influenced by markmaking. “As Pablo Picasso said, ‘The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.’” M A R K D E N N I S has been a sculptor for 36 years. He uses architectural epoxy to directsculpt portraits and animals. “Some sculptures are character studies, some are retellings of mankind’s various myths, some are just for fun.” S T E V E W I L S O N is a fulltime artist working as a graphic designer, illustrator, and fine artist. Steve’s main medium is watercolor. “On this painting, I used a limited palette and many layers of masking fluid. Pulling off layers of mask would reveal lighter areas and clean edges.” R H O D A K A H L E R ’ S clay tile work is inspired by nature. Each piece embodies the emotion felt by a relationship to the source of inspiration. “There is an illustrator deep inside me, however, the need to sculpt is just as strong. Combining illustrations on clay was the perfect way to express my views of the world.”

“We approach each project without any pre-conceived notion of its ultimate form or style. Our designs

begin with our clients: their needs, wants, likes, and dislikes,” says Steven. “We often end up spending a lot of time with our clients, both in professional and social settings, really getting to know them. Our designs then grow organically from the knowledge we’ve gained through those relationships.” While the vision and designs are influenced greatly by the client’s needs, Melanie and Steven’s work tends to boast a clean modern look featuring

refined detailing, with a hint of industrial flavoring. Whether they are restoring a historic landmark like The Keppel Building or leading the vision behind Lancaster’s newest and most transformative project, 101NQ, Melanie believes, “Architecture at its finest is a response to the environment in which it lies.”


Freiman Stoltzfus Gallery

I create first for myself; following my passions for music, architecture, nature and the four seasons, and floral life.” A prolific artist, Freiman has lived, studied, and exhibited his work in New York and in Europe. He owns and operates Freiman Stoltzfus Gallery in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Presently, Freiman is working on a series for Fall ArtWalk entitled “Field Hymns,” finding musical patterns and harmonies in Pennsylvania landscapes. He offers the following advice to aspiring artists: “Do not wait for inspiration to strike. Show up in your studio, at your kitchen table with a canvas and paint, or with a sketchbook and pencil outside—begin!”

Henrietta Heisler Interiors H E N R I E T TA H E I S L E R and her team have been transforming spaces for 19 years. Her work is built on the belief that design transforms lives. Every project begins with a deep conversation where she gets to know her clients and their known and unknown needs. She and her team then use their eyes, tools, and resources to craft and fulfill the new vision. Knowing that people are happier and more productive in spaces she has designed is deeply fulfilling for Henrietta. “My appreciation of art and beautiful design started when I was a child,” says Henrietta. “As a teenager I walked through the private estate of a descendant of Henry Frances Dupont who built Winterthur and witnessed a stunning living room with malachite tile floors and coffee tables, white sofas, and exquisite artwork. Everything was beautifully coordinated, it was breathtaking. At that moment I knew I wanted to create such beauty. The designer of that home had a huge impact on making me the designer I am today.”

Gail uses a proprietary interactive system of water-based materials to achieve extraordinary multi-layered textural effects. “I am a scientifically inspired artist and since joining Franklin and Marshall’s Evolution Roundtable 15 years ago, I have had a unique opportunity to explore the deep connections of human art-making far back into the distant prehistoric past,” says Gail. She credits returning to school at age 50 to study philosophy as the greatest influence on the direction and meaning of her work today. Gail received an honorary Doctor of Arts degree from Franklin and Marshall College in 2016 and shares the 2017 Governor’s Award for the Arts in Pennsylvania with her husband, former Mayor Rick Gray, for their promotion of the arts.

Vivace Live & Bring On The Bash V I V A C E L I V E , a contemporary string quartet, and the popular wedding DJ B R I N G O N T H E B A S H have joined together to provide a cutting-edge sound by combining the beauty of strings and the pop presence of a DJ. Together, they perform everything from pop and classic rock to well-known dance hits and originals. Their on-stage energy is the result of a passion for blending strings with popular party music to create their

own unique renditions for parties, weddings, and corporate events. “Vivace Live, with 30 string professionals on the team, brings the joy, passion, gratitude, and camaraderie that we share as a group, to every audience we perform for,” says Sara Irvine, Director of Vivace Live. “I’ve had an obsessive love for music since I was a child,” says Taylor Courtney, Founder of Bring On The

Bash. “This love naturally led me into DJ’ing. Then the wedding industry revolutionized itself with inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram. Weddings became hip but I felt as though wedding DJs were stagnant. I wanted to bring my excitement for DJ’ing to weddings and not match the bar but raise it. Crafting dance parties is a passion of mine and all I want is for everyone to dance their faces off!”

Cindy’s work is unique in Lancaster City, as she is the only fine artist that does decorative painting and fine folk art. She is well known for her original,

Inspired by others who also create from joy, Cindy is influenced by folk artist Grandma Moses and Suk Shuglie, for their perseverance to continue to

Barrick Candles R I C K F A U L K N E R , of Barrick Candles, has been creating contemporary candles to illuminate homes since 1970. His simple, modern candles come in vibrant colors. Rick is influenced by the Danish modern designers and craftsmen who combined clean, simple design with solid craftsmanship to create enduring objects for the home after World War II. The process for making these signature candles begins with Rick making a mold, into which he pours hot, colorful wax. The wax castings are then polished and refined into a final candle. “The candles are simple yet sophisticated,” says Rick. “They provide a bright splash of color for your home or party table. They can be used as a design and color accent yet are fully functional and provide a warm glowing flame for cold fall evenings.” The Barrick Design Studio is open Monday – Friday 9 am – 5 pm and Saturdays in November and December.


65 236 NORTH MARY STREET 717.397.1383 SUSANJGOT TLIEB.COM

Susan J. Gottlieb S U S A N G O T T L I E B is a multi-media painter, traveler, and teacher. World cultures lure Susan on adventures, and fill her with ideas. Cultural origins and connections fascinate Susan. Many of her recent works are inspired by her travels and experiences in far-off places. “My work is an attempt to concretize my experiences,” she says. “The multi-media paintings combine with snippets of travel notes, writings,

and dismantled artwork. They are collections of personal experiences focusing on the most elemental parts of my nomadic journeys while circling the globe—the textures, patterns, lights, and colors that hold fast in my mind’s eye.” Susan’s paintings evolve in layers stacked, constructed, and torn back to reveal earlier occurrences. Her latest work is a series of paintings inspired by travel to India and Italy.

“If I can paint the remembered sensation, I have it with me forever,” she says. “Better yet, if I can evoke a light, a power, an atmosphere so that it is palpable, if I can draw attention to what may otherwise be unseen, to share the wonder of it all, that is my greatest thrill.” Her art can be found in galleries across Pennsylvania, and she is represented by Red Raven Art Company.


First United Methodist Church B R I A N L E H M A N characterizes his art as a record of his own personal experiences and emotional reactions. He creates paintings, sketches, and collages that depict his spiritual journey. Rooted in daily sketches, his images document the people and places he encounters.

Triode Media Group J A S O N K E R S H N E R specializes in Creative Video and Live Broadcast Production, and is Creative Director at Triode Media Group. The majority of Jason’s career was spent with ESPN, where he primarily produced or directed live broadcasts and featured content. Today at Triode Media Group, he collaborates with a great group of passionate creatives and helps clients tell their stories through the art of cinematic and innovative video

production. “My goal is to determine the most creative, effective, and engaging ways to reach and connect with an audience,” says Jason. Jason feels lucky to have grown up in such an amazing cinematic era, and became fascinated with movies and TV at a very young age. He loves the work of Spielberg and Lucas, of course, but his own approach to visual storytelling is also influenced by cowboy and renowned sculptor Herb Mignery.

“His passion for telling stories truly inspires me,” says Jason. “When viewing his work, my interest and imagination is instantly sparked, and I can get lost in the moment.” “Every piece not only captures the culture and history of the American West, but each intricate detail makes me want to learn everything about the featured subject or scene, and I find myself asking… ‘And then what happened?’”

YADIR A GARRIGO WA S A PHYSICIAN IN HE R HOM E COUNTRY OF CUBA , but when she and her husband emigrated from Cuba to the United States to find a better life, she lost her certification to be a practicing doctor.

Nurturing creativity. E D U C AT I O N I N T H E A R T S develops students’ thinking skills, connects kids to the larger world, and helps develop a sense of community. Looking around the City of Lancaster, it is impossible not to notice the enriching presence of the wider world and arts in our community. From the diverse faces of City residents to the vibrancy of Gallery Row and North Queen Street, it is clear that the richness of our artistic community is one of the things that makes Lancaster special. The arts are also one of the strengths of our beloved School District of Lancaster (SDoL).

For the past eight years, the SDoL has been recognized among the top school districts for music education in the United States, according to the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation (NAMM). Beginning in elementary school, students have the opportunity to participate in chorus, band, and orchestra, and many musicals and other artistic events through the support of the school district and volunteers. The district also has a strong commitment to the visual arts, with student work frequently on exhibit within schools and in City galleries. The strength of arts programming in the SDoL is a testimony to the hard work of many talented teachers and school leaders who value arts education, and a community that believes that family income should not limit students’

access to inspiration and excellence. Each year, community donations to nonprofits like the Lancaster Education Foundation help to ensure that each of our students has the access to musical instruments, artists in residence programs, extra funding for art classrooms, and scholarships for the study of art and music. We invite you to contribute to the future of the arts in Lancaster by supporting the Lancaster Education Foundation.

Lifting Up Others FOREVER

" IT’S A S MA LL TH IN G WE CA N DO TO LIFT OTH E RS UP A N D CO N TIN UE TO M A KE IM PACT

LO N G A F T E R WE AR E G O N E ."

“Our lives were completely and permanently altered in an instant,” Kim Shorter reflects. When her husband, Scott Conley, had a massive brain aneurysm 20 years ago, there was a 90% chance he would die. After months in a coma and numerous surgeries, Scott survived and he and Kim have built a rich life together. The couple’s gratitude in having community and family to help them through the most difficult times is the inspiration for their bequest to the Community Foundation. “How could we not give back to the types of organizations that gave to us when our situation was so bleak?” Kim says.

AUTHENTIC Leading the way through innovation and example.

Authentic: Libby Modern WA L K I N G I N TO M O D E R N A RT on West Chestnut Street is like walking into a daydream. That is, as long as your daydreams are colorful, hopeful, meaningful, and beautifully optimistic. The woman responsible for the whimsy and wonder that is Modern Art is our Fig Authentic, Libby Modern. Libby has been using her approachable studio space in Lancaster as a launchpad for creating, collaborating, ideating, and change-making for the last five years. When Libby first moved into the space, she imagined it would be the perfect studio for her socially conscious graphic design company and as a workspace for creating her own art. However, the giant windows that light up the space also invite the world outside, inside, and soon Libby decided that the studio wasn’t just her own, but had a greater purpose in connecting, empowering, and inspiring the neighborhood through art.

With a socially conscious mission in her design work, and a passion for design thinking as a means of problem solving, Libby is also passionate about engaging the City of Lancaster in addressing issues of social justice, human connection, and seeing things from a new perspective through creation and sharing. “What I really want to do is to think about art in a different way. Modern Art projects often catch people off guard—such surprise serves to spark imagination and break down social barriers. I’m always looking for ways we can do that in this City that is very diverse but still segregated; there are so many people who are doing amazing things here that need to be connected,” she says. “When creative, caring, engaged citizens connect, change is born.” Through interactive projects, workshops, machines, and design, Libby invites the community to challenge old ideas,

face fears, and embrace the power of togetherness. In “Word From Your Neighbor,” Libby gave a voice and a platform to community members to leave notes to their neighbors. Through “The Phonotel”, visitors were challenged to disconnect from their phones and reconnect to their community, thoughts, and intuition. Through collaborations with the Common Wheel, monthly concerts, windows that act as canvases for inspiration and encouragement, and an inclusive and intentional open door policy, Libby has truly used her space, her art, her conscience, and her creativity as a way to bring Lancaster together. Each new creative process manages to celebrate the community, make us think, help us to see one another, and encourage us to work together to make this world more winsomely weird.

AN ENGAGING COMMUNITY PROGRAM

Featuring John Ratzenberger

“Made in America: Educating, Motivating and Empowering Americans to Expand Skills & Entrepreneurship”

Monday, October 22, 2018

Lancaster Marriott at Penn Square Cash Bar 6 – 7 p.m. | Dinner served 7:15 p.m. Multi-Emmy-nominated actor and accomplished screenwriter, director, producer and author, JOHN RATZENBERGER is best known for playing mail carrier Cliff Clavin on the long-running NBC sitcom “Cheers.” Before this, John lived overseas for 10 years and has worked as a carpenter, archery instructor, and deck hand on a fishing boat. He produced and starred in the Travel Channel series “Made in America,” which highlighted U.S.-made goods and workers.

Best known as “Cliff Clavin” the mail carrier from Cheers, John Ratzenberger is passionate about how important it is for this country to recognize the need for and provide the training to produce skilled laborers.

“My mother used to give me old radios and toasters, with the cords cut off,” said Ratzenberger. “She told us to take them apart. Growing up, everyone we knew could make something, and knew how to fix things. We are losing that and we need to get it back. Kids today are not making things,” he said. “Instead they are going to college to get degrees and can’t get a job. There are plenty of jobs out there. We just need to teach kids the skills. Many today, do not even know how to use simple tools, hammers and screwdrivers. Manufacturers today say high school kids can’t even read a ruler. How are they going to build airplanes, build homes, or even perform simple household repairs?” With “Made in America,” John established a television precedent and led the way for a new series of Dirty Jobs, Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers to celebrate the work ethic that built America. He co-authored A Common Man’s Salute to an Uncommon Country, published by Time Warner.

Ticket sales start August 20 $100 each • Seating is limited

That’s why Water Street’s Whole-Person model of service includes a range of components including spiritual, physical, and behavioral health, to life skills, a community network, and access to sustainable housing. Providing holistic and transformative support like this takes a true team effort.

Social mission AT F I G , we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions— one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. Because of this, the Fig Social Mission Program began. Each year Fig partners with a non-profit organization working to transform the community. This year we’ve partnered with Bench Mark Program as they empower youth in our community. Please join us in supporting this inspirational organization.

“ I L E A R N E D D I S C I P L I N E AT B E N C H M A R K ,” S AY S H E C T O R PA G A N . Hector needed a place to channel his frustrations, his energy. His friend Brandon told him about Bench Mark Program and explained how it’s a good place to channel those things in a healthy, productive, and positive way. “I can come to the gym and release it through exercise,” Hector says. Now he works to help other kids follow that trend. “I help a lot of kids—kids that have been through what I’ve been through. Many kids can be angry, so I push them towards something that releases anger. Some kids who are ashamed of their size, they can do cardio and make it fun and play games.” Hector has been studying any chance he can so he can go into the Army, and looks to build on the strong selfconfidence and personal motivation he has worked hard to establish with the help of Bench Mark Program. Explore figlancaster.com and benchmarkprogram.org to learn about the incredible impact this organization is making in the Lancaster community.

NeuroScience & Spine Associates. Dr. Kager and his family moved to Lancaster in 2001. “Lancaster is the best of many worlds— great city, great family communities, and great open spaces. There are fantastic entertainment opportunities, restaurants, and phenomenal healthcare providers.” “ W H E N I WA S A C H I L D, I H A D RECURRENT EAR INFECTIONS A N D M U LT I P L E S U R G E R I E S — that is what initially got me interested in medicine. As I grew older, I became more interested in how the brain and spine functioned which led to becoming a neuroscience major.” Dr. Christopher Kager channeled his own medical challenges from his childhood to form the foundation of his now thriving medical career, leading to his current role as a Neurosurgeon at Lancaster

112

Dr. Kager obtained his education from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He completed an internship at the University of Cincinnati followed by a neurosurgery residency and Chief Resident year in Neurosurgery. Dr. Kager continued his training by accepting a fellowship in Spinal Surgery at The Cleveland Clinic. He moved to Lancaster following this fellowship in 2001 and joined Lancaster NeuroScience. “I am amazed by the comprehensive and individualized approach at Lancaster

NeuroScience regarding patient care,” said Dr. Kager. “The opportunity to see patients improve over the course of their treatment here is very rewarding.” In his free time, Dr. Kager enjoys playing and watching sports—especially tennis and platform tennis. Whether he is in the office or at home, there is one mantra that he keeps at the forefront of his actions. “One of my favorite historical figures is Ben Franklin,” said Dr. Kager. “A favorite quote of mine is his daily affirmation: ‘What good shall I do this day?’” Dr. Kager strives to consistently implement this affirmation and help those in need. “There are many things we may not have control over,” added Dr. Kager. “So control the things you can. Stay active, don’t drink or text while driving, and stay safe.”

“ I ’ M D O I N G TH I N G S I ’ V E N E V E R D O N E B E FO R E .” Lloyd Ziegler embraces every new opportunity that comes his way at Garden Spot Village—from learning Scottish dancing to honing his woodworking skills to participating in travel with purpose trips to help rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Matthew in North Carolina. Shortly after moving to Garden Spot, Lloyd joined the woodshop even though he didn’t have experience or woodworking skills. Master craftsman Bill George was the first of many craftsmen who have taught Lloyd the fine points of woodworking. He uses the woodworking skills he’s learned to help others whenever he can. For example, he recently crafted 100 “broken” wood hearts. This fall a team from Garden Spot Village will tie them together with leather cord and share “mended hearts” with patients at CURE International’s Kenya hospital in Kijabe. Living a purposeful life in a thriving community is at the heart of Garden Spot Village—because creating a meaningful future never ends. We would love to hear your story, introduce you to some residents, and give you the opportunity to learn a little more about the Garden Spot story.

Get in touch and we’ll set a time to see if it makes sense to craft a future together. You’re invited to visit our website or give us a call.
