THIS MOST RECENT DRAWING WAS COMMISSIONED BY THE ERIE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION. MY LAST COMMISSIONED DRAWING OF 2014, IT SHOWS ONE THE MANY BEAUTIFUL MANSIONS THAT EXEMPLIFIES ERIE'S MILLIONAIRES ROW ON WEST SIXTH STREET. THE DRAWING ITSELF WAS QUITE CHALLENGING, WITH IT'S MIX OF MATERIALS, FROM STONE TO BRICK, WOOD AND PLASTER. CAPTURING THE ESSENCE OF THESE MATERIALS COMBINED IN THE BEAUX-ARTS CLASSICAL STYLE, WAS A PROJECT THAT I LOOKED FORWARD TO AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED.
POST HOLIDAY HOURS WILL BE LISTED SOON.

James E. Sabol is an Erie born artist who has concentrated on pen and ink drawings since 1980. His work is primarily focused on subjects of a historical nature, particularly the places, buildings, and landmarks that have been an integral part of the heritage of Northwestern Pennsylvania. From the Presque Isle Lighthouse and the U.S. Brig Niagara, to the historic Warner Theatre, the artist's hand has rendered each scene in the finest detail. This demanding medium is time consuming and difficult, but the effects are unmistakably characteristic of Mr. Sabol's work. For over thirty years the artist has created commissioned works not only for many of the local colleges and universities, banks, corporations, businesses, and hospitals, but also private collectors. Mr.Sabol's work has benefited countless charitable and philanthropic organizations over the the years, and continues to do so today.
The James E. Sabol Studio and Gallery has been in operation since 1990. It is located at 2006 West Eighth Street, Erie, Pa, and features the artist's work. It shares a building with the Mazza Vineyards Wineshop. The building, originally a gas station, was renovated by the owners, Mr. Sabol and Mr. Mazza.
In addition to his career as a professional artist, Mr. Sabol had been an instructor of Art at Cathedral Preparatory High School since 1971. He earned his Bachelor's Degree in Art Education from Mercyhurst College in 1970, and a Master of Education (Jewelry and Sculpture studio track) from Edinboro University in 1975. Mr. Sabol retired in 2010 after nearly four decades at Cathedral Prep as the Art Department Chairman. He looks forward to spending additional time developing new projects and offerings for the Gallery.
