Conservation & Art: Story of our Natural Lands

April 4th-May 18th, 2024

The Lancaster Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust that has protected over 10,000 acres of natural land in both Lancaster and York Counties, is excited to present an interactive multimedia exhibit that delves into the intersections of science and art through the practice of nature journaling. The well-rounded exhibit will introduce the viewer to the natural landscape of the Susquehanna Riverlands and the vital importance of the Conservancy’s work to protect our forested river hills, in perpetuity. The exhibit will include hands-on opportunities for visitors to learn about nature journaling as well as the role artists can play in documenting the changing landscape of the Susquehanna through their unique perspectives of our natural world. The hope is to inspire visitors of the exhibit to get out and explore the Conservancy’s nature preserves with journal, pencils, and brushes in hand – joining the longstanding tradition of capturing the lower Susquehanna through art – as showcased in the main Rob Evans’ curated exhibit, “Visions of the Susquehanna, 250 Years of Paintings by American Masters.”

Upcoming Installations in the Art Lab

Inhale/Exhale by Richard Babusci

May 30th-July 20th, 2024

Inhale/Exhale is an interactive exhibit of original paintings and video art by Richard Babusci which explores themes of change, grief, and new beginnings. These cycles of starts and endings, meetings and partings, births and deaths, which we all face one way or another throughout our lives, connect us in a way that is uniquely human.  With his artwork, Richard reflects on his personal journey through a season of death and loss, inviting viewers to respond.  Visit, and experience the art by not only viewing, but contributing a postcard from your own journey, as well (if you want).

An opening reception will be held at Creative York on Thursday, May 30 from 6 to 8pm.



Letter Love by Mel Rodgers

August 1-September 14, 2024

Letter Love is the evidence of one designer’s life-long and ongoing love affair with letterforms. Posters, publications, animation, and objects will showcase some of the ways that typography can be used to inform, express and entertain. From hand-drawn to digital, serious to silly, Letter Love will have something for everyone.



Experimental, Immersive, Thought-Provoking Art Wanted

the art lab

Creative York announces an open call for artists to submit proposals for the Art Lab for 2023. The Art Lab is a space to introduce and cultivate new work that contributes to the cultural growth of York and our community.

The Art Lab installations go beyond “art exhibit” into the realm of experimental, interactive, engaging installations. It’s the space to explore and push boundaries, to go beyond “viewer and art” to “participant and art”.
