Ideal Forms: The Art of Alan J. Klawans and Andrew Werth

"Ideal Forms: The Art of Alan J. Klawans and Andrew Werth"

November 6 - November 30, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 8, 2014, 3-6pm



Artists' Gallery is pleased to present "Ideal Forms," an exhibition featuring the art of Alan J. Klawans and Andrew Werth. The show runs from Thursday, November 6, through Sunday, November 30, 2014. A reception with the artists will be held at the gallery (18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ) from 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. on Saturday, November 8, 2014.

In "Ideal Forms," their fourth exhibition together at Artists' Gallery, Alan J. Klawans and Andrew Werth explore numbers and math through geometric (Klawans) and organic (Werth) abstraction.

Andrew Werth
"The Experiential Now"
30x30 acrylic on panel

Werth's acrylic paintings include "Reality Construction #1 and #2," two paintings composed of "impossible triangles" with regular but subtle progressions of color spanning thousands of hand-painted brushstrokes. For "Balance," Werth wrote a computer program that uses principles of physics to help him design a painting with a balance of squares and circles within the picture plane. He also includes several "Turing Pattern" paintings, based upon the patterns in nature proposed by British mathematician Alan Turing. Werth simulates the underlying physical process on the computer before realizing the designs in paint on aluminum panels.

"I've long been interested in consciousness, perception, and cognitive science," Werth explains. "Most of my paintings in this exhibition are related - abstractly and metaphorically - to the mystery of how we go about making sense of the world," Werth explains.

Alan J. Klawans
"Two"
original digital print

Klawans takes a non-literal approach to numbers in his series, "The Visualization of Numbers One to Ten." Through intuitive rather than typographic means, Klawans constructs geometric abstractions that regard numbers as something more than a counting system. "Since I was a child, I felt that certain numbers had a distinct color appearance," he says. "Each number also has an abstract quality as well as a geometric structure that I try to express in these works."

Klawans received his formal art training in the 1950s and the era still has an influence on him, with hints of jazz album covers and abstract expressionism showing up in his work today. His means of production, however, is thoroughly contemporary: the computer is his primary tool for creating his numerically inspired original digital prints.

And don't forget - while we feature 2 artists each month, all of the Artists' Gallery artists will always have work on display.

Then & Now - Patricia Lange and Doug Sardo

"Then & Now"
featuring Sculptor Patricia Lange
and Pastel-Artist Doug Sardo

October 9 - November 2, 2014

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 11, 4-7 pm
 Closing Reception: Sunday, November 2, 3-6 pm
A Sculptor's Alchemy and the Color-Palette of an Impressionist

Émile Zola once famously summed the lifetime work of an artist up in four words: "to live out loud." On October 11th, from 4 to 7 pm Lambertville-based Artists' Gallery invites the public to celebrate a lifetime of evocative works by two celebrated artists, metal sculptor and potter, Patricia Lange and pastel artist, Doug Sardo. This autumn showcase captures decades of study, experimentation and the creative presence of two artists whose collective work has been exhibited and published everywhere from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Grounds-for Sculpture; from Bristol Myers Squibb to the Museum of Modern Art. 

Born in Santiago, Chile and a resident of Hopewell, NJ, sculptor and enamelist Patricia Lange--a former accountant who sees parallels in exactitude in her enamel work, spent many years moonlighting as a metal sculptor--as well as a committed teacher who instructed blind students at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Lange has worked with almost every material imaginable, metal scraps and found materials, as well as wall-sized pieces of aluminum, steel, and copper--and her works have been exhibited at the Grounds for Sculpture and purchased by Bristol Myers Squibb. In 2003, she voiced the experimental approach that marked her bold signature style throughout her career no matter the medium. "I'm not afraid to ruin a piece...."

For plein-air painter and pastel artist, Bucks-County resident Doug Sardo, whose designs have been published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, color and light blend magically in Delaware-River Valley landscapes - thick trees, covered bridges, watery shadows and layered skies. Inspired by the natural world, Sardo draws from over 300 shades of color and demonstrates the trained eye and palette of an impressionist. Using some of the discoveries made by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists, Sardo composes paintings filled with evocative color and life. 

The showcase of Then and Now will display both former and current works of Lange and Sardo. 

Visit the event website for more information about this show. 

And don't forget - while we feature 2 of our artists each month, all 18 Artists' Gallery artists always have work on display at the gallery.

Flight/Patterns - Beatrice Bork and Jennifer Cadoff

"Flight/Patterns"
featuring Beatrice Bork and Jennifer Cadoff
September 4 - October 5, 2014


Opening Reception: Saturday, September 6, 5-8 pm
Coffee & Conversation: Sunday, October 5, 2-4pm



Explore rhythms, flight, textures, and patterns inspired by the natural world in the art of Beatrice Bork and Jennifer Cadoff at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville. "Flight/Patterns" showcases these award-winning artists' latest paintings and drawings, and is their second collaboration in as many years.

Beatrice Bork is an internationally-recognized wildlife artist whose watercolors capture animals -- often, but not exclusively, birds - immersed in their natural habitat. "The signature of Beatrice's art is an ability to balance the intricate details of her animal subjects with loose brushwork, splashes of color and unusual compositions that make her paintings thrum with life," says Cadoff. Bork has won the prestigious Don Eckleberry Award for outstanding bird art from the Society of Animal Artists, of which she is a signature member. Her paintings have been published in a variety of books and magazines and acquired by collectors from around the world.

Jennifer Cadoff, also an award-winning artist, makes intricate abstract ink drawings that suggest her close observation of natural patterns such as tree bark, rain, even cells under a microscope. Bork says: "Jennifer creates thousands of small, simple marks that transform into wonderfully complex organic patterns that let your imagination take flight. They draw viewers in to discover and interpret - and each can see something totally different in her work." Cadoff incorporates into some of her compositions the outlines of leaves, pine cones and other natural detritus that she collects on her walks, mesmerized by the infinite variations of their simple forms. Other work includes striking collages that play with dimension and form through combinations of patterns and textures.

The show runs through Sunday October 5, with another opportunity to meet the artists at "Coffee & Conversation" on that day, from 2 to 4 pm.
