Here's a great video featuring Artists' Gallery's Charles David Viera at the annual Paint Out at the Morven Museum in Princeton, NJ:
"Oil & Water", Charles' show with Eric Rhinehart continues at Artists' Gallery now through Monday, Sept 1, 2014. Here are a couple of pieces from the show:

The relationship between "oil and water" captures the subtle creative tension that artists Charles David Viera and Eric Rhinehart bring to their subjects, so it is a fitting name for their dual show at the Artists Gallery
The aptly named "Oil and Water" exhibition will run from August 7 to September 1 and will feature works in oil ,acrylic and watercolor paints as well as a number of pastels . This is the second time the artists have teamed up for a show.
In this show, Viera will present works primarily in oil and oil pastels. He brings a unique perspective to his colorful images of landscape and nature that are at once common and complex. "I like to think about the action, the tension, that is behind each image," explains Viera. "The viewer is left to wonder what will happen after the captured moment."
"Moments" play a central role in Eric Rhinehart's work also. In some works, time seems to be on pause -- movement halted for a fraction of time -- compelling the viewer to step into the action. "Some of my pieces are more voyeuristic. You feel like you are looking into someone else's life -- someone else's personal reality -- as they enjoy a meal, a swim or simply get on with the work of their lives."
Join the artists at their opening reception Saturday August 9 from 4 to 8 pm. For more information visit the event website or visit the artist's websites at charlesdavidviera.com and rhinehart-art.com.
Note that for the duration of this show -- the month of August -- the gallery will remain open until 9 pm on Saturdays.

Watercolorist Gail Bracegirdle and oil painter Joe Kazimierczyk team up for their first show together this July at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.
Generally known for his plein air landscape paintings, Joe Kazimierczyk is showing a new body of work, a series of skyscapes and cloudscapes done from memory and imagination. "Skies can change so quickly and so dramatically, that even when painting on location I find myself painting what I remember the sky looking like 10 or 20 minutes ago" says Kazimierczyk. "For this show I took that one step further, and created a series of skyscapes done entirely from memory and imagination."
Gail Bracegirdle's continuing explorations of watercolors and techniques brings us a series of paintings on crinkled paper. "I'm intrigued by the sense of mystery and the added challenge of working on this wet and very textured surface. I find it fascinating to begin with a subject in mind, then having that idea abstracted by the lines and patterns in the paper."
Together, Bracegirdle and Kazimierczyk present a colorful and imaginative show at Artists' Gallery this July.
