It was nine years ago in November 2016, we signed the Lease for our gallery at 17 N Prince St. Lancaster, but on December 31, 2016, we closed the gallery. I have thoroughly enjoyed these years in Lancaster, meeting many interesting and wonderful people. However, I am ready to retire from the gallery, but not from painting. I will be 64 in 2016, and we would like to travel and just have more time to do other things. I also have 8 grandchildren, and want more time for them. I have mixed emotions about closing the gallery, but there are different seasons to life and it’s time for other priorities. I do plan to keep painting and am planning on having occasional shows in downtown Lancaster. I look forward to having more time to experiment with my painting and to keep learning and growing as an artist. My passion for painting continues.

Another contributing factor to closing the gallery is the status of my vision. I was diagnosed with macular degeneration about 25 years ago. In the last two years, I’ve noticed a significant change in my eyesight. I can still paint impressionistic style, and that is the style I truly love, so I feel blessed. This macular degeneration has contributed to the urgency to retire from the gallery.

I’m sure you will see me around and my work on Facebook and my website, juliaswartz.com. and other places. Terry (my husband) plans to keep our gallery at Intercourse PA open and you may even find me there once in awhile.
