Jeanette Leid is a local artist based in Denver, PA. Discussing her own work she says, “The white birch trees and rustic landscape that become my subjects are full of realistic detail alongside areas of negative space. This contrast demands a studied observation. My intention is to instill a feeling of “openness” allowing the imagination to become engaged.”
Her drawings are on display in our gallery and you can find more about Jeanette and her work at www.thewhitebirch.net.

Art by Andy Smith,a local artist from Lititz, PA, is currently on display in our gallery. Andy’s detailed watercolor paintings highlight snippets of everyday life and the play of light and shadow across his subjects – which could be anything from a piece of pottery on a windowsill to a roadside scene he’s captured on one of his morning bike rides around Lancaster County. This is the second time Andy’s work has graced our gallery.
RLPS started off 2017 by welcoming artist Melissa Carroll to the C.H. Walton Gallery. Melissa’s acrylics depict some of her father’s mineral specimens and bring color, shape, and texture to the gallery, brightening gray winter days. In her own words “I wanted to find that sweet spot between realism and abstract. I saw it and wanted to show it to others too.” You can find her website at https://melissacarrollart.patternbyetsy.com/ and her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MelissaCarrollArtDesign/. If you’re visiting our office, please take a moment to check out her work.
