New Member: Doug Sardo


The Artists' Gallery welcomes our newest member, Doug Sardo, a pastel artist who can often be spotted painting his works on location in the rural Bucks County countryside. Doug will be having a 2 person show with Jennifer Cadoff at the Artists' Gallery in March - we'll be posting more about that very soon.

The gallery is also sad to see Nancy Shill depart but we wish her best of luck in her new ventures!

Temptation

This month Artists’ Gallery members will tempt you with an enticing new mix of contemporary and traditional art. Temptation will open February 8 and close March 2, 2008. A tempting chocolate buffet will be provided for the opening reception, Saturday, February 9 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Wicked French Truffles donated by The Chocolate Box at 39 North Union Street will be included.

Note: our postcard said the opening is Saturday, Feb 8, but it should read Saturday, Feb 9. If there's ever any confusion, our openings are always on a Saturday.

This February marks another Leap Year and Artists’ Gallery members are taking a leap into seductive subjects as they succumb to the lure of smelly oil paints and varnish. While others will be drawn to their watercolors, collage elements, camera or mirrors and glass. We don’t know what tempts you. Maybe it’s the purity of a snow covered hillside or the sensuous beauty of a flower. A loosely painted watercolor or abstract work could be a compelling attraction, or the mysterious pull of an anonymous portrait might be impossible to resist. We hope you will become infatuated with the work of our artists. Why not join the gallery leapers at the opening for a steaming cup of hot cocoa and a tasty bit of something chocolate. Leapers know when to say “yes” to temptation.
