Come by Train to Gallery 141

James Dupree Featured This First Friday

If you are coming from Philly or DC or anywhere for that matter coming by train can be a real pleasure. Especially for First Friday when the red carpet and some red wine will be rolled out for you. You can also take Peter Pan which arrives at the very same station as the train. We are less than a mile walk from the station. If you are staying overnight, I recommend the Arts Hotel where a reservation WILL be necessary. If they are full there is a Tavelodge about three blocks behind the station. It is not as nice but great price, and MUCH better accomodations than the overpriced and totally discombobulated Brunswick downtown.

When you arrive, walk out the front door and straight down Duke St. a few blocks. One block after the hospital, turn right at Smilies on Lemon St. The Belvedere Inn is on the next corner (Queen St). They make a wicked mohito and the food is great too. Ceasar Salad is one of their specialties. The 300 block of Queen has some fun and funky shops, Rachel's Creperie and Onions where they have Korean and diner food, and Lancaster's largest warehouse full of art Studios, The Kepel Building. Many studios will be open for First Friday. Also, next to Onions, duck back that alleyway to Building Character, a new business in town that will delight. Cut over to Prince St on Walnut St. Take a left on Prince St. The galleries will be popping all the way down to Orange St.. Walk around back of the A-Plus to Water St. and we will be there with Billy Penn Project and Jazz with Kallia to entertain you. Matt and Melissa will have their infused wines for you to sample inside. Cafe tables will be up in the parking lot.
