I’m so excited to announce some new work that I’ll be showing this month! An opening reception for the new artwork will be held on February 17, 2017 at Zeroday Brewing Co., located in Midtown Harrisburg. Here’s the Facebook Event.

The images attempt to show my feelings of confusion about where I am, frustration about why I’m not where I want to be, and they also demonstrate order, simplicity, balance, and consistency. It isn’t perfection I strive for, it patience to practice.

Each image features iconic Harrisburg landmarks as portrayed by paintings, showing different styles and features.

Location # 3 – Yellow Bird Cafe ~ Artwork will be on view  Feb. 16 – March 16

This image was created during a 52-Week Photo Project in 2012, for the week themed “Peace”.

The Peace Exhibit is a collection of photographs of peaceful and scenic landscapes, rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. These images each remind me of a time when I felt at peace. Please enjoy the images while relaxing with some coffee.

Location # 4 – Susquehanna Art Museum ~ Artwork will be on view Feb. 9 – March 31

About the Artist

I’m Deb Schell, a Harrisburg-based professional photographer. During a trip with my grandfather in Alaska, is the first time realized I wanted to learn more about the magic of photography at the age of 16.

I decided to go to school to focus on learning the art of capturing a moment in time as a photojournalist and worked in the industry at various news publications from 2005-2015.

Now I enjoy photographing my local musician and theatre friends in addition to local landscape and architecture.

I also work to promote peace with Peace Day Philly, a nonprofit organization I became involved with after participating in PDP events on the International Day of Peace in 2013. You can learn more about my work with PDP on my blog, Images4Peace.

In 2012 I began exhibiting my photographs. Check out my art exhibit website for gallery exhibition information.

Recently I sold over 600 pieces of my Harrisburg artwork to the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg. In 2014 the hotel renovated 125 rooms, which have my signed artwork in the guest rooms.
