GKH celebrates its first year in its new office location at 2933 Lititz Pike by hanging a new original painting commissioned by GKH from Lancaster artist Freiman Stoltzfus. Stoltzfus’s work “Seasons of Lancaster” was painted in acrylic and mixed media on canvas.
In “Seasons of Lancaster,” the progression of time is a central theme, as the four seasons of the year pass through seven trees from left to right, and as day becomes night. The seasons are also presented in landscape, via angular patterns inspired by quilts and fields. The City of Lancaster is featured in gridlines, with county roads leading outward.
According to the artist, “This work symbolizes both permanence and fluctuation. The message of rootedness and tradition is presented, meant to convey stability and assurance.”
A giclee print, also by Freiman Stoltzfus, hangs in the GKH waiting area. “Grand Wheel of Time” is hand-embellished to create a unique piece, and naturally compliments the original work.
“We could not be more pleased with Freiman’s painting and his ability to use this painting to capture some of our firm’s core values,” says managing partner Dwight Yoder. “For example, Freiman’s painting reflects our firm’s deep roots in the county’s rural and agricultural community as well as our strong connections to local businesses, organizations and religious institutions. It also captures our firm’s commitment to walking with our clients during every season. We are proud to display it in our reception area for our clients and visitors to enjoy.”
Freiman grew up in rural Lancaster County. He maintains a gallery in Lancaster city at 142 North Prince Street.
