Quarryville Library art exhibit to feature scenes of southern end
BY ROXANNE TODD, Correspondent
A "Historical Scenes of the Southern End" art exhibit will open Saturday with a reception from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Quarryville Library, 357 Buck Road.
The exhibit, which runs through April 26, will feature numerous Southern Lancaster County Historical Society artists who have contributed pen and ink drawings of local historical buildings for publication in the society's annual calendars.
The 2013 calendar, which will be sold with older calendars at a discounted price of $2.50 on the day of the opening, represents the 29th year that the historical society has published a calendar for fundraising purposes.
"Where else can you get 12 pieces of art for that price?" asked Christiean Sensenig, one of the featured artists.
"The artists all freely contribute to the calendar every year -- donating their time and effort," said Stan White, president of the Southern Lancaster County Historical Society.
Visitors to the art exhibit can expect to see many of the southern end's historical buildings in the pen and ink media. Many of the prints will be for sale with 20 percent of the proceeds benefiting library operations.
Five of the contributing artists were part of the original calendar crew 29 years ago. They are Anita Reed, Stephen Roka, Colleen Shoemaker, Ruth Lefever and Novelda Ferguson.
Other participating artists include Linda White, Doris Hough, Jessie Crotti, Melissa Gallagher, Sensenig, John Esworthy, Jane McCardell and Mark Phillips.
