Paul Grecian and Michael Schweigart: Down East

"Down East"
featuring Paul Grecian & Michael Schweigart
April 10 - May 4, 2014
Opening reception: Saturday, Apr 12, 4-7pm


New Jersey artist Michael Schweigart and Pennsylvania fine art photographer Paul Grecian are joining together at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ to express a mutual appreciation for the coastal Maine landscape including Acadia National Park.

Schweigart and Grecian will be offering original paintings and photography that reflect the quiet and beauty which they experience in the landscape and wilderness of this unique part of the country. A reception with the artists, free and open to all, will be held at the gallery from 4 pm – 7 pm on Saturday, April 12, 2014



For Schweigart, this show is about "Memories of trips up and down the coast, everything from wooded rocky shores, marshy coves, and small seaports." His most recent work conveys unique scenes of Maine's "Down East" coastal areas. Schweigart's acrylic works on paper are carefully layered to develop depth, visual texture, and richness of color.

"Maine has been the muse for some of our greatest artists, and it's no wonder," asserts Grecian, "The diversity of light and landscape is a never-ending source for creativity." Grecian continues, "I have experienced feelings of both awe and serenity while in Acadia National Park." "Working in my medium of photography from before sunrise until the star-filled sky of night, I find it all very exciting."

Please join us for this exciting show!

New Member: James Pryor

This month, Artists' Gallery welcomes our newest addition to the gallery, James Pryor:


James’ style and images combine into subtle emotions that engage the viewer. He has always believed that one should put to print what stimulates. Combining his custom adapted flex body camera along with his unique printing methods, he has established a creative dreamlike “other-world” through select focus with textural dimension.

Having studied psychology, philosophy and a little theology, James’ visual environment is one of awakening. His images explore reactions to strength, weakness, assertion, submission and the beauty that surrounds.

You can read more about James Pryor and see more of his work on his Artists' Gallery web page.   Better yet, come see James' work in person at the gallery!

Colors Along The Way: Rich Harrington and Carol Sanzalone


"Colors Along The Way"
featuring Richard Harrington
and Carol Sanzalone

March 6 - April 6, 2014
Opening reception: Saturday, March 8, 4-8pm


Artists Carol Sanzalone and Richard Harrington, are pleased to announce the opening of their joint show, "Colors Along The Way", on Thursday, March 6th, at the Artists' Gallery, 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ. The exhibit, which runs through April 6th, features watercolor, acrylic, gouache and oil paintings by the two artists, who are influenced by the same elements but express them differently on canvas and paper. A reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, March 8th, from 4 to 8 pm.

"Colors Along the Way" refers to the common element that Sanzalone and Harrington share in their respective works; it is how they use them and the subject matter they choose, that creates a surprising parallel between their artistic sensibilities.

Carol Sanzalone
"West Amwell Woods"

Both artists draw from every day images around them that inspire and inform their work. Carol Sanzalone is often inspired by the natural world around her. "I love the graphic qualities of darkness and light and the impact of color" Sanzalone said. "It is so rewarding to capture a visual surprise, which I can share with the viewer in my painting."

Rich Harrington
"Nicholson, PA"


Richard Harrington, from Newtown PA, finds his inspiration for his work in the objects and buildings in urban and semi-rural areas of Philadelphia and Bucks County and shares the impact of color and light on his work. "I always find myself attracted to painting orange brick buildings against a blue sky, or a red farm tractor in a green field. I love it when the warm colors of spring are blossoming against the left over earth tones of late winter, or when the leaves of trees turn bright orange and yellow against a crisp blue autumn sky".

Two very different artists, with very different methods and very different subjects come together to exhibit work inspired by the same element: The "Colors Along The Way".
