About the Designers
I have been geeking outing the restoration of the decorative arts for over thirty years now…always something new to see in every old price to come into my care. Grain painting has become my favorite painted finish, but gilding, historic wallpapers, mural restoration and hand crafted anything will always catch my eye. I love sleuthing out how craftspeople from the past did their work, made their tools and paints, and I love the energy of artists long gone still burning through the layers of paint they left behind. Go to Curio Decorative Painting & Restoration in Facebook to see some favorite projects, or find Stacia Cavalinha Hummel on Messenger.
Staff from the Demuth Foundation painted this year’s piano sponsored by CH&E. Education & Outreach Coordinator Abby Saurbaugh served as lead artist, developing the design and overseeing its execution. Her design was inspired by Charles Demuth’s watercolors and drawings in the Demuth Museum’s permanent collection, and his Precisionist style.
Saurbaugh has lived in Lancaster County her whole life and earned a Bachelor’s in art education from Millersville University. She is also a teacher and Young Artist Studio Coordinator at the Center for Creative Exploration – Pennsylvania College of Art and Design.
The Demuth Foundation operates two art museums in downtown Lancaster – The Demuth Museum at 120 E. King Street and the Lancaster Museum of Art at 135 N. Lime Street. Our mission is to promote the appreciation and awareness of the visual arts in Lancaster through preserving the legacy of Charles Demuth, supporting local and regional artists, and inspiring a new generation.
