Memories of Change - the art of Alla Podolsky and Laura Rutherford Renner

"Memories of Change"
Alla Podolsky
and
Laura Rutherford Renner

Oct 6 - Nov 6, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday Oct 8, 4-7 pm
Closing Reception: Sunday Nov 6, 3-6 pm


The spaces and people that enable us to grow and thrive, the settings that are beset by transformation or neglect, are the focus of the work by Alla Podolsky and Laura Rutherford Renner at Artists Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, from October 6th to November 6th, 2016, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 8, from 4 to 7pm, and the closing on Sunday November 6th from 3 to 6pm.

Alla Podolsky's work is all about the memories. "I paint memories of places, events, faces, emotions. Fleeting things. Things that change constantly, even in the ways we remember them. It's a rush to preserve them, to keep them as experienced. Which is as nearly impossible as it is tempting. Memories tend to change on us, the further we get removed from them, so my paintings are imprecise. They are all about that change, and a way of holding on."

Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Alla Podolsky traces her love of psychological painting to the Byzantine-style iconography of that city. After immigrating to the United States in 1990, she continued her art education at Moore College of Art and Design (1995), and later received Master's Degree in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (1999). She continues to paint and develop her voice as an artist.

Laura Rutherford Renner is an artist whose paintings on wood depict contemporary life in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Her work has been included in various juried exhibitions and shows, recently as a juried member of Artists Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, and at the iconic Philadelphia Sketch Club. In addition to her painting career, Laura is a practicing Occupational Therapist and the published author of several OT biographical articles. She lives in Collingswood, NJ. Laura has previously exhibited in Artists House Gallery in Philadelphia for nearly 10 years.

While Podolsky is a long time member of the Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, Renner is in her first year of this partnership, and this is an exciting opportunity for both artists to have their works exhibited side-by-side. They share aesthetic sensibilities and the love of the genre painting. Even though their approaches differ, there are connections and parallels that make for the dynamic and interesting visual dialog.

Together, they have attracted art collectors from the region who value their depiction of feeling for place and the inherent interactions that happen there. This intriguing and powerful exhibit will please art lovers throughout the region.

Enchantment - the art of Joseph DeFay and Maxine Shore

"Enchantment"
Joseph DeFay
and
Maxine Shore

September 8 - October 2, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday September 17, 2016 5-8 pm


Artists' Gallery is pleased to present "Enchantment," an exhibition featuring the oil paintings of Maxine Shore and the photographs of Joseph DeFay.

Inspiration for my paintings often comes from places near and far that spark my imagination. Because I work exclusively in oils, I usually rely on watercolor or pencil sketches as well as my camera to record images that I work on in my studio. Such was the case with the painting, Cinque Terre, which depicted a town in Italy my husband and I visited last year. A photograph of the painting was featured in the New York Times this past February.

I'm a painter who loves color. Seeing and interpreting the various colors I find in landscapes is what interests and inspires me. Every time I begin a new painting, I challenge myself to see and interpret my subject with a fresh approach. Looking for unexpected colors and movement in a scene is what I strive to capture in my work.

Joseph is a member of the Photographic Society of Philadelphia and the Plastic Club. His work has been exhibited at Penn Medicine Rittenhouse, the Plastic Club, the Art Alliance, Perkins Center for the Arts, Bucks County Audubon Society, and the Hamilton Township Public Library.

My photographs attempt to document a view of the various ways individuals explore their existence through philosophy, religion, or tradition. My current exhibit - New Vrindaban (The Land of Krishna) - includes photos taken in the mid-seventies during a four-day stay at a Hare Krishna farm community in West Virginia. They are being seen together for the first time.

Krishna (meaning Dark or Dark Blue) also known as Govinda (Cow Protector), is one of the most beloved and widely worshipped of all the Hindu Deities. He is the central character of the immensely popular Hindu Scripture called the Bhagavad Gita (Song of God). Today his teachings and exploits are still widely celebrated by Hindus around the world.

"Inspiring Places" - the artwork of Joe Kazimierczyk and Carol Sanzalone

"Inspiring Places"
Joe Kazimierczyk
and
Carol Sanzalone

August 4 - September 5, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday August 6, 2016 4-7 pm
Closing Reception: Sunday, September 4, 3-6 pm


Inspiring Places… The marvelous paintings of special places, which inspire the work of Joe Kazimierczyk and Carol Sanzalone, will be showcased at Artists’ Gallery from August 4th to September 5th. Both artists have been exhibiting members of the Artists’ Gallery for over ten years and have developed a following of collectors who value their creative spirit and approach to their work. Please join Kazimierczyk and Sanzalone for the opening reception on Saturday, August 6th from 4 to 7pm and the closing on Sunday September 4th from 3 to 6pm. This exciting showcase is not to be missed!

Joe Kazimierczyk works with oils in a style of traditional realism. Joe's painting is a natural extension of his exploration of the countryside and nature's beauty. In this show, he ventures beyond his usual haunts as he paints scenes from hiking trips ranging from the Delaware Water Gap to the Catskills to the Adirondack Mountains.

Carol Sanzalone is currently painting in watercolor and acrylic. Water media provides her the ability to enliven a subject with washes of transparent color, much like natural light throughout the day and seasons. Interested in the graphic quality of shadows and highlights, her current work involves a more creative approach to subjects throughout the Delaware Valley and beyond.
