the dreams of
Robert A. Nelson
RobeRt A. NelsoN is iNspiRed by just About eveRythiNg—
Flash Gordon, American history, Buck Rogers, and the Wizard of Oz. His drawings are just a little bit bizarre, and he likes it like that.
As a highly respected contemporary painter, sculptor, printmaker and collage artist, Robert A. Nelson, 87, has created works of art included in the permanent collections of many major museums, including the Smithsonian Institute, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and Boston’s DeCordova Museum.
His illustration-style drawings, both strangely comical and compellingly uncomfortable, are fantastical but extremely technical portrayals. As a resident artist Robert’s work can also be found throughout the year. Robert is a retired art professor from Millersville University where he spent 16 years teaching, and where he was granted the rank of Professor Emeritus. “I’ve had the pleasure of instructing incredibly fine students who have gone on to wonderful things.” Dr. Nelson and his wife, Louise, now reside on a 65-acre Oregon farm. Surrounded by beautiful northwestern farmland and their beloved horses and dogs, their hearts still beat for Lancaster County. As his wife expressed:“Oh, Lancaster is home for us.”
“Drawing is the First Art—Everything else springs from that.”-Robert A. Nelson
“You hope that the images you put together will be so interesting that the viewer will lean into the drawing and say, ‘Come here and look at this.’”
In the French Industrial Style, Chris added yet another stunning piece to our collection.

About the Artist
Diane Podolsky is a mixed media and installation artist based in Philadelphia. Diane has garnered many awards for her work, including the Gold Medal at the Philadelphia Plastic Club and Best of Show at the Bethlehem Fine Arts Festival. As a teaching artist, Diane was awarded an Art Futures Residency thought the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2012, and was also awarded a New Courtland Artist Fellowship in 2009. In addition to her paintings, Diane produces a line of linocuts and etchings that she brings to area art and craft shows.
The images in this exhibition reflect my love of nature, particularly the mundane or “less beautiful” creatures and plants we take for granted. My goal is to capture the essence of these living things rather than produce an exact replica.

I just cannot get enough of Dr. Nelson’s work. Would you trade 25 cans of sardines for 6 pounds of mixed cheese ? That’s the deal!
