Lancaster in the Point of a Pen
Work by Italian Artist Guglielmo Botter

July 10, 2018

Since he was very young, Guglielmo was fascinated by urban landscape and his drawings continue to reflect this preference. He is Italian American, born in Italy. He became an architect in 1993 and continued to sketch on the side. The recent economic crisis in Italy made him rethink his life, and made it easier for him to rediscover his past path in the art field. Guglielmo is now offering to the public his view of Lancaster's monuments and landmarks.

ARTIST STATEMENT

There’s an undeniable magic in folklore. A folk tale can be as old as time yet somehow it never feels outdated. We can easily apply the morals and lessons to our modern day lives. Whether we grew up in sleepy small towns or sprawling metropolitan cities, lore has the immense power to bring people together, to inspire, and to give meaning to life’s big questions.

The veritable zeitgeist of society is in part fueled by the folk tales that have endured through generations either orally, though written texts, or in visual art. In these tales, today’s pop culture finds an endless tome of material with which to flourish with archetypal characters and fascinating storylines from every inch of the globe.

Our city of Lancaster is known for its cultural diversity as well as its artists. Why not bring these two aspects together in an exhibit to show not only artistic prowess, but also to illustrate the makers’ respective ancestral pasts? In “Mythos: Family Folklore of Lancaster Artists,” we honor creatives of the Lancaster area and the cultures that helped shaped them.


City Hall Gallery exhibits the work of local artists. Lancaster is proud of its rich community of artists and has dedicated a highly visible public space to showcase their work. Artists are selected by a subcommittee of the Public Art Advisory Board, comprised of art professionals. Exhibits rotate every two months and each month the Featured artist(s) and the Public Art Manager or Public Art Advisory Board members host First Friday openings. The City Hall Gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. -5:00 p.m. and is located in the hall outside of Council Chamber in the City Hall Annex. Visit us and become inspired by the artistic spirit of our talented local artists!
