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

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.

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.

Quiet Life / Wild Life - the artwork of Charles David Viera and Debbie Pisacreta

"Quiet Life / Wild Life"
featuring Charles David Viera and Debbie Pisacreta
November 5 - December 6, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 7, 4-8 pm 



An exhibition of shared inspirations by two well known local artists will be on display at Artists Gallery in Lambertville N.J. this November. Although Debbie Pisacreta's landscape paintings suggest a more quiet reflective quality while Charles David Viera's expressionist animals paintings resonate action they both admit to being inspired by such diverse masters as Matisse, Hopper and Fairfield Porter." I think any one that is familiar with those artists mentioned will see and appreciate our connection when they see the exhibition" says Pisacreta." Both of us try to do as much as we can with color and use it as a vehicle to touch the viewer" adds Viera. "Debbie's oils have a wonderful calm, almost pastel like quality about them while my works are almost violent with slashes of paint and line that I use to suggest movement and power".

This is the first opportunity for the long time friends to exhibit together. Debbie Pisacreta is a resident of Lambertville and can frequently be seen creating "plein aire" landscapes in and around that scenic town many of which are included in the exhibit. Viera will offer vibrant paintings of horses, birds and other wildlife images that deliver an expressionist impact.This is his third show at Artists' Gallery and it will be Debbie Pisacreta's first.




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.
