The rotating art gallery at United Zion Retirement Community, Lititz, is pleased to host the work of local artist, Caroll Pennypacker, for the month of April.
Pennypacker, a Lancaster County native, has always had a great love for the arts. In her early years as an artist she studied art under Professor Henry Libhart at Elizabethtown College. Later, she attended York College and was a medical coder for local hospitals while raising her family. It was during this time that she taught evening art classes and sold several of her paintings. She works with acrylics, watercolors and mixed-media and her chosen subjects are landscapes, seascapes and floral motifs. To improve her techniques, Pennypacker takes art classes and fine art workshops.
After recently retiring, Pennypacker has more time to devote to her artwork. She has completed her fourth year serving on the Board of the Lititz Art Association in which she has not only assisted with the Outdoor Art Shows of Lititz but also exhibited her beautiful and intricate paintings. While her home and studio is in Brownstown, Pennypacker displays and sells her artwork throughout Lancaster County. Her artwork captures creative content, color, subject matter and perspective. To Pennypacker, stepping into her studio is “like going into a wonderful world of peace, adventure and creativity.”
Pennypacker’s work will be exhibited in the gallery throughout the month of April and can be viewed between the visiting hours of 8am and 8pm.

United Zion Retirement Community is located at 722 Furnace Hills Pike, Lititz, one and a half miles north of the square in Lititz.
