Wishing you a Happy New Year! As 2018 comes to an end, I'd like to say thank you to all of my friends and customers who have supported and encouraged my work throughout the last 28 years at the gallery.
Since 1980, I've been fortunate to have been commissioned to create original drawings for many private collectors, as well as many of Erie's educational institutions, hospitals, banks, churches, corporations and businesses. Each of these were unique and challenging in their own way. Thank you for all of your confidence and trust.
To everyone who's purchased prints, notecards, shirts and of course, ornaments, thank you! Over the years, I've gotten to know so many of you, and I truly appreciate your friendship and good wishes.
While I wrap things up at the gallery, I'll be open this Wednesday through Saturday with limited hours for final pick ups. Please call for hours. As future projects with the Wendell August Forge crystallize, I'll keep you informed.
As I have indicated, the Gallery will be closing soon. I'll be reworking the website and expect to be making unframed prints available. Bear in mind that this may take some time, as I will need to empty the Gallery and sell our building.
Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2019!
WHETHER YOU CAME IN FOR THE ORNAMENTS ONLY OR HAVE DISCOVERED THE AFFORDABLE GIFTS OF MY ERIE COLLECTION OF PRINTS, ORIGINAL DRAWINGS, NOTECARDS AND SHIRTS, THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATRONAGE THROUGHOUT THE LAST 28 YEARS IN THE GALLERY (1990) AND THE 38 YEARS (1980) SINCE BEGINNING MY JOURNEY IN PEN AND INK!

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.
Now available is a new section featuring a number of prints of schools, available in several sizes. Prints may be personalized at no charge for the graduate. Framing is available.
The website is still undergoing changes and updates, so please be patient and check back often. Thanks for your interest in my work.
