The Drake Gallery Featured Artist Series.
The Drake Gallery is a new space in Smith Custom Framing & Fine Art Gallery that features the works of regional artists. Each artist's exhibition begins with a wine and cheese reception where you can meet the artist and view works for sale by that artist, and features a live demonstration at a later date by the artist showing how they work and the techniques they use.

Born in Germany, Erna and her family came to America – to quote her parents – “so that they would be able to live in the most wonderful country in the world!” Being a European-born artist Erna learned to admire the works of the Great Masters at an early age. Like the Luminists, she is constantly aware of the interplay of light and its effects. In her work and in her life, Erna absorbs and enjoys the beauty that surrounds her and strives to capture all of its luminescence on paper for others to enjoy. Erna’s wish: to delight the senses and to elevate the spirit.
Erna has a deep body of work, is an award-winning Artist and has been a featured artist at the Art Association of Harrisburg, the Doshi Gallery and at the Governor’s Mansion, to name a few. One of her pieces still hangs in a place of Honor at the Governor’s Mansion. Erna maintains professional memberships in many prestigious watercolor Societies including being a signature member of the Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Baltimore and South Carolina Watercolor Societies.
Erna and her husband, Rod, moved to Harrisburg in 1962, where he practiced dentistry for 46 years. They have been married for 54 years and have a daughter and son and three grandchildren who are the pride of their lives.
