Multimedia Applications Animate Carlisle Man's Art

James Krabiel’s studio, located in the Haverstick Building on Carlisle’s North Hanover Street, is strewn with the tools and materials that you would expect to see in the working space of an artist with eclectic interests. One could imagine that the music he plays while at work and the hum of street traffic three stories below have their effects on his images. Krabiel’s analysis, however, is a little more precise, born from years of experimentation and experience.

Trips to the beach, picnics, backyard barbecues, swimming and boating are all great summertime activities, which can often include drinking alcoholic beverages.

Hiding In Plain Sight

Hiding In Plain Sight

If you travel up north 13th Street to Liberty Street, you will arrive at the entrance to the Harrisburg Cemetery. Passing through the gates of this historic resting place for many notable city residents (as long as it’s between the hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), you will enter a world far removed from its surroundings.

In-Home Artist Spaces

Few things seem more romantic than the idea of an in-home studio – a place to create, a refuge from the world. Three area artists and a writer know that the creative life has its rigors, but the joy of stepping into a studio all your own makes the sacrifices worthwhile.

The Badlands, Crazy Horse, Wine and More... South Dakota

Is there another state richer with iconic, true blue American sights and spectacles than South Dakota? From Rushmore’s imposing granite noggins to the still-emerging magnificence of the Crazy Horse Memorial – and the desolate glory of the Badlands – South Dakota typifies this country’s outsized, go-big-or-go-home grandeur. But to focus only on the western side of the state, where those justifiably famous attractions reside, is to lose out on the gentler pleasures to the east. Instead, begin your tour in Sioux Falls, working west along I-90 – and following this guide to South Dakota’s Unmissable Top 10.

Painter Applies Extraordinary Skills to Portraits and Landscapes

As painter Mark Topp discusses the elements of his craft, both comprehensible and oblique phrasing peppers his speech. There is “You learn by doing.” Or, “I do my best work when I’m not even thinking about it.” And, “You need to think through the materials…the painting and the painting experience are one.” None of it surprises those who know Topp, a 2008 émigré to the Harrisburg area.
