While many Lancaster City art galleries have earned recognition as part of the growing downtown art movement, Karen Anderer Fine Art stands out as one of the most vibrant voices in the community. Karen Anderer Fine Art, formerly known as CityFolk and CityFolk Gallery was the epicenter of the Lancaster PA art explosion. Located in the heart of Gallery Row, in Lancaster City, Karen Anderer Fine Art showcases internationally-recognized fine artists such as Robert A. Nelson, René Romero Schuler, Michael Bartmann, Georganna Lenssen, James Doherty, and Carl White. In fact, Karen Anderer Fine Art is one of the few Lancaster PA galleries to highlight such distinct and utterly thrilling modern artists. It’s this commitment to finding and representing such bold fine art that has earned Karen Anderer Fine Art popularity among the Lancaster art scene and visiting art lovers alike. Karen Anderer Fine Art is a Gallery not to be missed.
Due to Karen Anderer Fine Art’s prominence as one of the key Lancaster City Art Galleries, we can host art exhibitions of renowned and rising local, national, and international artists. These exhibits allow the Lancaster art community to experience – and purchase – the work of visiting artists; as well as give exposure to our local artists and community. See our “Current Exhibits” and stay tuned for upcoming artist events.
A major component of the aesthetic diversity that makes KAFA such a unique art gallery comes from our distinguished Legacy and Gallery Artists. Our storied Artists represent a wide range of distinct styles including the lost art of drawing, expressionism, impressionism, figurative, watercolor, and several different takes on the abstract vision. Explore our Artists’ digital galleries right here – and then visit Karen Anderer Fine Art to experience their work in person. We welcome Visiting Artists into our Group Exhibits or Multi-person Shows.
Visiting art collectors often tell us that our gallery belongs in New York City. While we wouldn’t want to be anywhere other than Lancaster, we do think that we bring a metropolitan feel to our town. The unique KAFA feel comes from the wide range of artists and styles we represent. Ranging from the last Draughtsman style of Robert A. Nelson to the ethereal quality of Michael Bartmann’s Architectural Paintings, to the Inspiring Figurative work of Rene’ Romero Schuler, we offer a true spectrum of voices in the fine art community.
If you are an experienced collector or just beginning to develop your appreciation, we’d love to share our artists and pieces with you. Whether you’re looking for a standout First Friday destination or if you’re visiting the area and want to explore a premier Lancaster PA Gallery, and Lancaster City, start at Karen Anderer Fine Art.
While it may be a cliché, it’s true: seeing really is believing; experience it for yourself. Our collection of art, from small to large modern art pieces can only be fully appreciated in person. On the personal side, KAFA is designed to feel welcoming as soon as you cross the threshold. Located in one of the premier historic buildings in downtown Lancaster, the space carries the feeling of a once-grand home. We invite you to visit our downtown Lancaster city art gallery.
