Doris Hough Memorial Exhibit

A painting in the Doris Hough Memorial Exhibit.

Longtime member Doris Hough is remembered fondly by many of us here at the LCAA. She exhibited regularly in our membership shows with her paintings of flowers, landscapes and animals. Her favorite media were oil and oil pastel. For many years she volunteered with the hospitality committee and rarely missed a reception with her wonderful homemade cookies.

Doris began drawing at a young age in New Jersey. That is where she and her husband began farming, then moving to southern Lancaster County in 1971. The LCAA had several Plein Air outings at Doris' farm where she had 100 antique roses among many other flowers. She donated her work to raise funds for many non-profits and taught art in the 4H program for a number of years.

Doris' family will be showcasing some of their favorite pieces in this exhibit.

William Chambers: "The Obsessive Dollhouse" Show

William Chambers has been combining painting, sculpture, printmaking, and performance into interactive art installations. The Obsessive Dollhouse is a performative installation that in its first iteration took place during the fall of 2014. It remains a dollhouse, on a workbench, that is both renovated and detroyed through unnatural and natural disasters. This construction and destruction is documented in photographs, video, and text in the form of a blog and three real photo albums.

This piece is an exploration of the ambiguity between the dream of house that I/we fall in love with upon purchase and the reality and struggles of home ownership. Also, this is a chance to play with the idea and lie inherent in "documenting" an event. The narratives and photos show a destruction, but it is fictional and created. Each album tells a slightly different story.

This work aims to help us see houses more clearly for what they are.

William is currently working on his MFA at Mass. College of Art. He studied sculpture at Sarah Lawrence College and has done extensive graduate level course work in painting. William has exhibited his artwork in galleries in Pennsylvania and beyond. He teaches art at the LCAA and at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design and the York Art Association.
