My name is Cindy Schlosser and I have recently opened Gallery On Market in the heart of the historic section of downtown Lancaster. I love being in the gallery, as it is my working studio. I enjoy painting while conversing with friends and customers who come in to visit. It is nice because the gallery has an entrance to the alleyway of Central Market as well as an entrance to King Street. I have always loved drawing and painting, but I never really planned on it being this big a part of my life. I have a Ph.D. in Exercise Science and Biochemistry and taught Human Biochemistry and Nutrition at Temple University in the Dental School for about 8 years.
When asked to put in more days, I decided to say no and stay home and raise my three children. I then began to paint and do juried art and craft shows. I started painting wooden eggs, but now my mediums include wooden bowls, antique door panels, shutters, and various other antiquing finds. All the bowls are sealed to be food-safe and hand-washable. I love to go to “junk” places and buy old tables, chairs, and ancient boxes to paint! Besides painting, I enjoy running, swimming, and golfing with a group of friends called the Ya-Ya’s and I also practice Parelli natural horsemanship.
I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart and desire to spread love, joy, and peace in the heart of the city. I want to let those who enter feel valued no matter who they are.
Cindy’s work is unique in Lancaster City, as she is the only fine artist doing decorative painting, which she call’s, “Fine Folk Art”.
Cindy is most well known for her original, hand-painted beechwood bowls that are fully functional “art you can use”, as well as antique repurposed shutters, panels, windows, and furniture. I give life to things that were destined for destruction.
Cindy enjoys spending time at her gallery painting, playing music, and loving people. She was also voted Lancaster’s “City’s very first “Queen of Happy
