April 12 “2nd SATURDAY” – Jeanie Hartman and Lyn Marsh 2 – 4 pm
Lyn Marsh is from central Pennsylvania where she is recognized as a leader in the art community. Her award-winning works speak beautifully to her philosophy that “Art is my way of embracing the world around me.” Her diverse works demonstrate her love of color, expression of light and shadow, and her attention to design and composition. A student of both private and group workshops, she settled near Harrisburg after receiving her degree from the Wyomissing Institute of Fine Art. In addition to her privileged participation in numerous solo and group shows, she serves on various art organizations and boards. Most notably Lyn is founder of the “Painter Capucines” which is the realization of her vision to establish a group of female artists who paint and display their works throughout the area.
Jeanne Hartman resides in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania and is primarily a watercolor artist. Her work is included in the permanent collection of the Art Association of Harrisburg. She teaches Free Spirit Watercolor Class at the Art Center School and Gallery in Mechanicsburg, and is a member of multiple art associations. She has served two years as President of the Pennsylvania Art Association. Her work “Victorian Dress and Bonnet” was selected to appear in the June Edition of the Eastern States calendar. Limited edition prints of her Victorian paintings are displayed prominently in the Harrisburg Hotel Hilton.

Destination ARTS! was conceived in May 2013 as a community revitalization project based on the arts, with the ultimate goal of turning Waynesboro, PA, into an arts destination. The initial project took seven large, vacant commercial buildings on Main Street and converted them into curated art galleries, while also filling an additional eight storefront windows with art. The project was successfully launched on July 19, 2013 and ended 15 weeks later on October 27, having displayed over 1,600 pieces of art from more than 120 artists, including local artists and some of the most highly respected artists in the Mid-Atlantic states. Sales exceeded $25,000. Entirely organized by volunteers, the project brought together artists, community members, and businesses, with over 200 volunteers participating. All of the seven galleries are now rented.
After our successful 15 week programs, we closed for one week and then reopened. Currently, four galleries continue to operate downtown. Open four days per week, the galleries have live music every Friday night, artist demonstrations and events every Saturday afternoon, and other special events (when available) on Thursdays and Sundays. Check the schedule below for information and the AAGW website for more details. As we approach summer 2014, more activities and new arts projects will be added. Our hope is that this will lead to an increase in vibrancy and a permanent transformation of our community into an arts and culture destination.
