New Works by Marc Reed and Beatrice BorkThis May, The Artists' Gallery will present Occupants and Outcasts, featuring new works by painters Marc Reed and Beatrice Bork. The show runs from May 11th to June 3rd, with an opening reception on Saturday May 12th, from 6-9pm.
The title Occupants and Outcasts is a reference to The Garden of Eden, and was chosen to reflect the disparities between the two artists work. While Beatrice's paintings depict animals in their natural habitats, in some sense still occupying the garden, Marc's work depicts the world of man, a species long ago cast out. In addition to differences in their subject matter, Marc and Beatrice work in different mediums. Marc in oils, Beatrice in watercolors.
Beatrice Bork of Flemington, NJ, is looking forward to presenting her artwork of the occupants which reflect inspirations from the natural inhabitants of which we share our earth. Among Bork's accolades: the Don Eckelberry Award for her bird art; Best in Show at the Art Center of Northern New Jersey, 12th Annual National Juried Show; many regional solo exhibits; national exhibits, and tours. Her watercolor paintings are published in magazines and books focused on wildlife art, including The Best of Wildlife Art volume 1 and 2 by North Light Books. Bork has been a professional artist since 1988, and is a member of the prestigious Society of Animal Artists. More information about Beatrice Bork can be found at: www.beatricebork.artspan.com.
