Custom Art Gallery with Featured Artists Every Season

The Lodge at Woodloch is intimately aware of the beauty of nature that surrounds us. Mother Nature provides an ever-changing muse for art and inspiration. Together with Kiesendahl + Calhoun Fine Art, Ltd., comes a custom-curated art gallery hall featuring local, regional, and international artists that help magnify our philosophy of personal awakening.

Earl Lehman

We are thrilled to welcome Earl Lehman to our Lodge gallery for the first time. The artist’s brushstrokes are lush and visceral. Layer upon layer the landscape takes on shapes and colors that combine abstract with representational, moodiness with vibrancy. Nature seems ablaze in Earl’s paintings, spilling over and morphing, the elements and colors seem to pass with urgency, bursting with expression. 

Unable to go to art school after high school, Earl joined the military in 1964, serving in the Philippines and Vietnam and NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, Maryland. Later he went to art school on the GI Bill, drawing and painting and graduating magna cum laude in 1979. He is a winer of the prestigious F. Lammot Belin Art Scholarship and was awarded a place on the PA Council of the Arts and the Arts in Education Roster. Earl taught and still teaches in this program and has been an artist in residence in schools and communities statewide. With a long teaching and exhibition history, Earl has won many awards. He believes that an artist is only as good as his last few paintings. 

The artist lives with his dog Luna in a house with a wall of windows that he built in the Susquehanna County woods, looking down on Tuscarora Creek, which flows into the Susquehanna River through a remote part of New York State, in a place called Laceyville.  Earl Lehman’s paintings have voices of their own, and he hopes that you enjoy their songs.

Nancy Campbell

This is Nancy Campbell’s second winter show with us at The Lodge at Woodloch. We are enamored with her landscapes and magical snow scenes. When she paints the early evening light, as seen in the snowy shadows of Winter Bright, or the stunning color and mysterious transcendence of Evening Light at Taos, the artist conveys a sense of awe that transports us to that precious, fleeting, twilight time.  
Nancy Campbell works in watercolor, oils and experiments with monotype printing. She considers herself primarily a landscape painter influenced by the Catskill range, in particular Overlook Mountain, which serves as the backdrop to her daily life in Saugerties, New York. She has always portrayed her surroundings -- the village streets and the mountain. Returning to her Italian roots, every year she sits and sketches and paints the hills and valleys of Lazio while conducting a landscape painting workshop in Ciociaria. During the early 1980s Nancy studied watercolor with Staats Fasoldt at the Woodstock School of Art. “It was during that time that the long process/challenge of learning to simplify painting began. In the early 90s, while living in Europe with my family, I discovered the "Nabis"...Bonnard, Vuillard, Denis and was struck by the oil painting bug, and have never turned back.” She adds that one consistent voice in her head while painting is her son Jon, who always reminds her to "stop!" She believes that the elusive key to good painting is to know when a work is finished.

Former executive director of the Woodstock School of Art, Nancy currently serves as co-president of the school with Staats Fasoldt. The artist is also an active member of the Woodstock Artists Association and Museum where she received an award of excellence for landscape painting. She has participated in residencies in Ireland and created the painting workshop in Ciociaria, Italy, in 2012. Nancy has been in selected solo and group exhibits from New York City to Ulster County to California. Born in Brooklyn, she has lived many years in Saugerties with her husband Michael. They have three adult sons.
