Almost next to my home sits the Lancaster Museum of Art inside of the restored 18th century Grubb Mansion. Behind the museums Musser Park occupies a city block. The park’s bordered on all sides by largely single family homes which also pre-date the Civil War by fifty to a hundred years. The Museum’s recently announced the appointment of a new Executive Director. My wife and I will hold a reception next month to introduce her to the Musser Park and Historic District neighbors.
We need an illustration for the front of the invitation…. Here it is. I’m anxious to capture the dignity of the old building, and its haunting personality. Moreover, it seemed correct to present it at dawn… together with the mood of a new day for the director and this grand old lady of urban art.

• The Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County presented a show of my work on First Friday, September 7, 2007 in The Sehner-Ellicott-von Hess House circa 1787. Click here to see the details.
If turnout is a criterion of success, It was terrific. Hundreds filled the four rooms and two hallways where I showed about forty prints of Lancaster City and County.
*** • Canon POTN has announced that three of my images have appeared in their published in the Fall of 2007. The images were accepted under: Transportation, Scenic-Travel, and Sports photography sections. Images were first judged by peer panels in each category, then submitted to the voting review of thousands of photographic artists from around the world. It is astonishingly flattering that they chose to accept three of my images. Can't wait to see the book.
