Constantine Kermes is one of Lancaster County’s most venerated artists. Born in 1923 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania he graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 1946, studying design and art. In 1955, he moved to Lancaster where he worked for a time at New Holland North America Company in industrial design. His paintings and prints, which often express the simple charm and dignity of America’s rural folk, have received many awards and have been exhibited in over two hundred solo shows throughout the United States, including ten at the Jacques Seligmann Gallery in New York. His works can be found in numerous public, corporate and private collections here and abroad. A signature member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, he has received many national awards and is listed in “Who’s Who in American Art” as well as “Who's Who in the East.” He currently resides in Lancaster and maintains a studio in his home.

On May 19, we lost a dear friend and celebrated artist, Constantine (Gus) Kermes. Respected by many for his astounding skills and determination to self-promote, his work was greatly admired and collected locally, nationally and internationally for several decades.
