Life as We See It - new works by Gail Bracegirdle and Alla Podolsky


"Life as We See It"
new works by
Gail Bracegirdle
and
Alla Podolsky
  May 10 - June 3, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 12, 4-8 pm


The narrative of our past and present, as we see it and interpret it, is the subject of the new works shown at Artists' Gallery in "Life as We See It".

Gail Bracegirdle, a graduate of Moore College of Art & Design, has focused on watercolors for over 25 years. "I feel that being an artist means that my job is to record what I see around me. The subjects evolve with the influence of light, weather, seasons and locations. Looking around my studio as I'm working is like reading my diary."

Alla Podolsky's work lends itself to interpretive narrative. "I paint events, as I experienced them, as I remember them, as I process them. Sometimes it's a direct interpretation and other times it's distorted and impacted by my feelings and memories. As artists, we inevitably change things just by observing and translating them into our work. This is what art is to me: translation. Of experiences, moments, emotions. It's life as we see it, inherently different from anyone else's perspective."

Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Alla Podolsky traces her love of psychological painting to the Byzantine-style iconography of that city. She is a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design, and holds a master's degree in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

And don't forget - along with our featured exhibit,
all 16 of our professional artists continuously have their work on exhibit.
We look forward to your next visit to Artists' Gallery,
where there's always something new to see.

Surroundings: the art of Joseph DeFay and Alan J. Klawans

"Surroundings"
new works by
Joseph DeFay
and
Alan J. Klawans

April 5 - May 6, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 7, 2-5 pm
Artists' Gallery is pleased to present "Surroundings," an exhibition featuring the graphic art of Alan J. Klawans and the photographs of Joseph DeFay.

Contemporary life has always affected Alan's art. "The ideas for my work are from observations I have made of my daily life, my family, people I have known, books I have read, movies that I have seen and television I have watched. The events that I have experienced during my life have been, as with most peoples' lives, both mundane and of great importance. My reflections on these events have provided me with an inexhaustible source of ideas for my work. The materials and technical processes used to create my pictures constantly change in order to express my ideas. My digital printmaking is the result of my background as a graphic designer and a traditional contemporary printmaker".

"During my travels, either local or abroad, I have always experienced a sense of place. Although my art is very abstract, I have tried to express that feeling of the places that I have been".

Joseph's photographs tend to pull out the simpler aspects of everyday life so they can be seen with a renewed beauty, and an exciting new perspective. "A completely open mind, favoring no particular philosophy, allows me to fully accept what each raw opportunity to create provides, and decide if it is to be refined and shared. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in their surroundings. Traditional artistic concerns prove an interesting challenge when capturing people, places, or objects in the moment, but are always held in high regard".

Perceptions - the art of Jane Adriance and Joseph DeFay

"Perceptions"

new works by
Jane Adriance
and
Joseph DeFay

November 9 - December 3, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 11, 4-7 pm


Artists' Gallery is pleased to present "Perceptions," an exhibition featuring the watercolors of Jane Adriance and the photographs of Joseph DeFay. Both artists have unique perceptions of the world they see around them. They reflect a perspective that is not based on what we normally call "reality". This photographer and painter offer images that may be surprising and at the same time compliment each other with a beauty that offers new perspectives in opposing mediums.

Working with watercolors, Jane intends to go beyond what she perceives in her everyday life. A kind of poetic license to reflect a point of view that can be startling and contradictory and yet beautiful. Jane uses color as her primary focus which is embraced by dynamic compositions of light, line textures and space.

Joseph's photographs tend to pull out the simpler aspects of everyday life so they can be seen with a renewed beauty, and an exciting new perspective. "A completely open mind, favoring no particular philosophy, allows me to fully accept what each raw opportunity to create provides, and decide if it is to be refined and shared. Traditional artistic concerns prove an interesting challenge when capturing people, places, or objects in the moment, but are always held in high regard".


Visit the event website for more information about this show.
 
And don't forget - while we feature 2 artists each month,
all 16 Artists' Gallery artists have work on display,
and there is always a wide variety of artwork to enjoy.
