Your Fine Art Connection

Here at the Green Drake, we are a premiere source for the best of regional fine art. You will always find hundreds of beautiful paintings on display, along with photographs, sculptures, and other media.

While most of our artists are right here in central Pennsylvania, we do represent a number of artists from around the country and even overseas. Most of our staffing is by our own artists and we are always happy to help you find the perfect piece for that special spot in your home or office.

We also have large selection of pottery, jewelry, wooden items, small musical instruments, and other handcrafted work by local artisans. Think of us when shopping for unique items for yourself or gift-giving.

Special Shows-

August 1 - September 28, 2014: Elody Gyekis "Mythological"

Resident Artist Elody Gyekis has been hard at work over the past year or so creative a powerful series of large paintings celebrating the mythological side of the human condition. We are pleased to offer the first home court showing of this work! Here is what Elody has to say about the series:

"From the Vatican floors to the pages of comic books, mythological creatures are one of the most enduring obsessions of visual culture throughout history and across the globe. In my current Mythological series, I piece together new versions of these beings from people, animals, and settings from my life and travels. My creatures indulge our tendency to anthropomorphize animals and bring out the deeply animal nature of humanity. I set them into stunning landscapes—seducing the viewer to leap into these epic scenes and receive the blessing or curse the creature within might bring. My work includes painting, sculpture, and large-scale community mural projects.  The public and studio art feed off of each other, as do the 2 and 3D work, in a collaborative conversation. My art thrives in a reflexive relationship with the world around me and is at its best when I am not simply drawing from what I see, but participating in the process that creates not only my art, but its inspiration as well."

This show will feature an opening reception with music by Harold Taddy on Friday evening, August 1, when you can meet the artist and talk about this amazing work.
