The Fleeting and the Eternal - Alex McKibbin and Joseph Zogorski

"The Fleeting and the Eternal"
featuring Alex McKibbin
and Joseph Zogorski

May 5 - June 5, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday May 7, 5-8 pm

Watercolorist Alex McKibbin and photographer Joseph Zogorski team up for The Fleeting and the Eternal, an exhibition of watercolor paintings and toned photographic prints, running May 5th through June 5th at Artists' Gallery, in Lambertville, NJ. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 7th, from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Born in Philadelphia from a family of modest means, Alex McKibbin fell in love with art as a child and never looked back. McKibbin generally paints large-scale watercolors in a loose and expressive style, while Zogorski utilizes film and prints in shades of grey. However, both artists are united in their strong feelings for subjects which embody elements of "the fleeting and the eternal". This is particularly evident in McKibbin's powerful, expressive color landscapes of locations from his past, as well as in black and white watercolors of bygone Philadelphia rail yards, painted as a teen.

Zogorski's often ephemeral and weather-related scenes - many presenting themselves during the years in which several family members and friends passed away - reflect deep and abiding feelings for those who came before and for the enduring mystery and beauty of this special place. Often of particular focus for Zogorski are the remaining undeveloped tracts and remnants of the once largely-rural area where he grew up, as did his father and where his paternal grandparents settled after emigrating from Europe over a century ago.

Painting seriously since 1957, Alex McKibbin has exhibited in over 200 exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally, including two extensive museum exhibitions, along with over 80 national and regional juried exhibitions. His works can be found in 32 public collections and over 60 corporate collections. Additionally, the work has been reproduced in 40 books and magazines, as well as CD covers. Alex taught Art History, painting and drawing at the collegiate level for 3 decades both here in the United States, as well as in Greece and Mexico, and Alex's bio appears in Marquis' Who's Who in the World. He presently has established a studio in Bensalem, Pa., and Alex's work has been handled by over twenty galleries throughout his career.

Joseph Zogorski is a graduate of Temple University and Maine Media Workshops. A lifelong Bucks County, PA, resident, Joseph has been seriously involved with photography for over a decade, including photographing and writing about musicians and arts-related topics for The Bucks County Herald. His photograph of World War II-era veterans at the Michener Museum's Tuskegee Airmen Presentation was awarded first place at Canal Frame Crafts', Vision of Hope juried exhibition. Joseph's photographs of musicians, dancers and actors are in use on numerous websites and on IMDb, and his prints are in several private collections.

Wild in Detail - the artwork of Beatrice Bork and Michael Schweigart

"Wild in Detail"
featuring Beatrice Bork
and Michael Schweigart

April 7 - May 1, 2016

Opening Reception: Saturday April 9, 5-8:30 pm
Homage to Earth Day: Friday, April 22, 6-8:30pm


Explore the expressive and detailed paintings by renowned artists, Beatrice Bork and Michael Schweigart, in this wonderful featured exhibit celebrating nature "Wild in Detail" at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ this April.

Beatrice and Michael have built their professional (collectively over 50 year) careers with their thoughtful interpretations of the passions that inspire them. While both artists are similar in their contemplative and highly personal approach, they do, however, focus on different subjects that nature offers.

Beatrice enjoys immersing herself in the thought and planning that is required with watercolor, but also relishes in its poetic qualities. "My curiosity is satiated through careful portrayal, which in turn reflects the love and respect I have for my subjects. The malleable qualities of this medium, allow me to focus on elements that are important to the painting." As a professional artist, she has amassed numerous honors including recognition by the prestigious Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation with signature status as well as the Eckelberry Award, specifically for bird art. Her paintings have been exhibited in various international exhibits and publications throughout the US and Canada, and are collected throughout the world. To learn more about Beatrice, go to www.beatricebork.artspan.com.

Michael continues to be inspired by the natural landscape and has broadened his scope with paintings of urban street scenes as well as the human figure. "I'm always interested in new subject matter to expand my visual horizons. No matter what I choose to paint it's all about creating believable paintings. The underlying abstract shapes that are the foundation for my work are accentual to the naturalistic qualities many have come to identify with my work." He has been exhibiting his paintings for 3 decades in galleries and museums throughout New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York City. His paintings have won numerous awards and are included in many public and private collections.

It's fitting to have Beatrice and Michael exhibit during April, the month that celebrates Earth Day, so Please join us for an "Homage to Earth Day" Friday, April 22, 6-8:30pm

Celebrating 20 years!

Open House: Saturday, Dec 10, 1-7pm


The artists of Artists' Gallery, are pleased to announce their 20th annual holiday exhibition, a group show featuring artwork by the gallery's 16 artists. For this very special exhibit, the artwork will be predominantly smaller pieces, perfect for the holiday gift giving season.

With gift giving in mind, we invite you to shop early for the art lover in your life and take home a small treasure at the time of purchase. The artists will continually replace work as it is sold thereby giving the show a fresh look until the last day, so stop in anytime you're in town. If you don't fall in love with something in December for that special someone, perhaps the new year will deliver a new surprise, perhaps even for yourself?

Small works have become extremely popular among collectors and allow for a wonderfully full and diverse array of art to be offered. With several new artists in the fold since last year, and new works being continuously created by long time artist members, there is always exciting art to be seen.

The artists of Artists' Gallery include Jane Adriance, Beatrice Bork, Gail Bracegirdle, Joseph DeFay, Claudia Fouse Fountaine, Paul Grecian, Richard Harrington, Joe Kazimierczyk, Alan Klawans, Alex McKibbin, Debbie Pisacreta, Alla Podolsky, Carol Sanzalone, Michael Schweigart, Maxine Shore, and Charles David Viera.
