Get Lost - Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk

"Get Lost" at Artists' Gallery this November 
 beginning 11·11·11
"Get Lost"
featuring Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk
 
Nov 11 - Dec 4, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, November 12, 5-8pm

Landscape painter Joe Kazimierczyk and animal artist Beatrice Bork invite you to "Get Lost" this November as they explore the outdoors through their art. Get lost in a moment, in nature, in discovery - "Get Lost" at Artists' Gallery.

Both artists do much of their work in nature. Kazimierczyk revels in the peaceful scenery of New Jersey's farmsteads and back roads and translates the experience with his talents as an oil painter. Bork's love of birds and animals comes through in wonderfully detailed watercolor paintings that place her subjects into artistic harmony with their natural surroundings.

"We both literally do get lost in our work," says Kazimierczyk. "In the search for and exploration of our subjects, and in the act of creating our artwork."

"My interpretation of ‘Get Lost' is in the sense that you let go of the everyday stresses and become one with where you are, tune in by tuning out - really seeing what's right in front of you." says Bork. "Often that leads to finding so much more about nature, and in turn, about yourself."

 "Silent Night"

"Losing yourself in Beatrice's or Joe's world is a wonderful way to spend some time," said Gallery spokesperson Laurie Nicholson. "Theirs is really soul-renewing work. I believe Joe's poetic landscapes might actually have the power to lower your blood pressure, while Bea's thoughtful portraits of animals reveal a wisdom and serenity that warms the heart."

Please join us for an opening reception on Saturday, November 12, from 5-8pm.

There will be a closing reception, "Coffee and Conversation" on Sunday, December 4, 2-5pm

Coffee and Conversation with Bracegirdle and Sardo

Gail Bracegirdle and Doug Sardo will be holding a “Coffee and Conversation” reception at the Artists’ Gallery, 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, New Jersey on Sunday, November 6 from 1 to 4. Both artists will be in the gallery to discuss the techniques and inspirations for their work on display. Homemade cakes and pastries and freshly brewed coffee and beverages will be served.


 
“Angles”
watercolor
by Gail Bracegirdle

“I hope you will drop by the gallery and see my watercolors,” says Bracegirdle, “I’ve been exploring a new approach, I call it ‘crinkle paper’. It’s a delightful effect achieved by soaking and crumpling the watercolor paper. When the paint is applied, it will take to the paper in unexpected — and uncontrolled — ways, somewhat like batik in fabric. “The spontaneity of it is really exciting,” she says. “You never know quite what you’ll get.”

“Uhlerstown Boat House”
pastel
by Doug Sardo

Sardo, a pastel artist, explains “my work is always evolving,” the calligraphic lines of his previous paintings have morphed into softer surfaces in his latest work. “I’ve been painting along the Delaware Canal in Uhlerstown. It is a fantastic cluster of historic buildings and the only covered bridge over the Delaware Canal. It is a wonderful place to paint outside”.


“Chiles”
watercolor
by Gail Bracegirdle

The vibrant paintings of Bracegirdle and Sardo will be featured in their joint exhibit at The Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville through November 6.

A “Coffee and Conversation” reception will be held on November 6 from 1 to 4. The Gallery is located at 18 Bridge Street, in the heart of historic Lambertville, NJ, and is open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm and by appointment.

In the Moment - Gail Bracegirdle and Doug Sardo


"In The Moment"
featuring Gail Bracegirdle and Doug Sardo

Oct 7 - Nov 6, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, October 8, 4-7pm


You might think you know Gail Bracegirdle's and Doug Sardo's work. Perhaps you've enjoyed Bracegirdle's elegant florals or light-handed still lifes of sun-dappled fruits and vegetables. Once you've seen them you will immediately recognize Sardo's luminous landscapes emerging from calligraphic swirls of mauve, emerald, ocher, and scarlet.

Well, forget what you think you know, because both artists are eager to show you something new.

"I hope my work is always evolving," says Sardo, a plein air painter who works in pastels. "It should evolve." By way of evidence, the calligraphic lines of his previous paintings have morphed into softer surfaces in his latest work.

"The technique is called 'sfmuato' from the Italian word 'to smoke'. It means that there are no harsh outlines, areas blend into one another which makes for a slightly hazy, more realistic, depiction of light and color", explains Sardo.

"I'm always looking for a new approach," exclaims Bracegirdle, who notes she is adding a new wrinkle to her watercolors.

"I call it 'crinkle paper,'" says Bracegirdle, describing the results she gets by soaking and crumpling her watercolor paper. When the paint is applied, it will take to the paper in unexpected - and uncontrolled - ways, somewhat like batik in fabric.

"I like the spontaneity of it," she says. "You never know quite what you'll get."

Please join us at the opening reception for "In the Moment" on Saturday, October 8 from 4 to 7pm. A closing reception will be held on Sunday, November 6 from 1 to 4pm.

Freewheeling in Lambertville (Two Artists Push Pedals)

Please join us for Artists' Gallery's September show:


"Freewheeling in Lambertville"
(Two Artists Push Pedals)
featuring Richard Harrington and Charles Katzenbach

Sept 9 - Oct 2, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, Sept 10, 4-8 pm

Artists Richard Harrington and Charles Katzenbach are big fans of bicycles. They love the elegant, geometric design. They appreciate the simple, efficient engineering. They fondly recall the Schwinn Spyders and English racers and classic Rollfasts of their youth and the freedom that a bicycle of your own represented.

"I couldn't wait to get on my bike," said Katzenbach. "The colors, the motion, the world speeding by . . ."


"Wheel #1"
by Charles Katzenbach
glass, oil, and bicycle wheel, 26" 

When they began planning their joint show for The Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, Harrington and Katzenbach decided to make bicycles the theme. They also decided to make the show align with a few other topics close to their hearts: recycling, reducing waste, and sharing.

"It kills me to see a bike thrown out with the trash," said Harrington. "A bike shouldn't be in a landfill."



"Chestnut Street Orange"
by Richard Harrington
watercolor, 12"x 16"

Harrington and Katzenbach hope that a few more will be saved from that fate this month as their show, "Freewheeling," aims to help support and promote the mission of Pedals for Progress, a High Bridge, NJ, organization that collects used bikes and ships them overseas to provide affordable, nonpolluting transportation for the world's working poor.

Harrington and Katzenbach will donate 20 percent of the purchase price of any works sold during this exhibition to Pedals For Progress. In addition, representatives from Pedals for Progress will be on hand at the The Artists' Gallery to accept bicycle donations on October 2 from 1 to 4 PM.

Please join us at the opening reception for "Freewheeling" on Saturday, Sept 10 from 4 to 8 pm.

A Sense of Place - Paul Grecian and Materese Roche

Please join us for Artists' Gallery's August show:

"A Sense of Place"
Visions of Land, Sea, and Sky
by Paul Grecian and Materese Roche

Aug 5 - Sept 4, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, August 6, 5-8 pm

"Passing Storm"
oil on linen, 21 x 20
by Materese Roche

"The question is not what you look at, but what you see."

Henry David Thoreau wrote that in his famous journal 160 years ago this month. Artists Paul Grecian and Materese Roche honor the spirit of Thoreau's vision with their own interpretation in their new joint show, "A Sense of Place". The collection of new landscapes, skyscapes and waterscapes debuts Friday, August 5, and will be on display through Monday, September 5 at the Artists' Gallery. Grecian, a photographer and Roche, who works in oils, will host an opening reception Saturday, August 6, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Gallery. During the reception, they will reveal the results of a collaborative project, designed for this show.

"Dune Path"
archival pigment photograph
by Paul Grecian

Grecian and Roche will each create a work based on one pre-determined image. The artists have selected one 'neutral' image which they will individually interpret, in their respective mediums. They will translate the scene, bringing to it their individual emotional responses, creativity and vision. It's a logical extension of Grecian and Roche's shared aesthetic and a reflection of Thoreau's quote.

"Morning on the Eastern Shore"
oil on linen, 11 x 14
by Materese Roche

Both artists have had the experience of people connecting to their work as specific places they know and have a deep emotional response to. "However" says Grecian "those are often not the places we've depicted, I believe this suggests we have managed to tap into some universal experience of the landscape".

Materese's and Paul's work transcends paint and paper, surface and image, as well as the specifics of time and place. It connects you to the essence and universality of the natural world. See it in person and there's no denying its power.

Views From the Other Side - Alla Podolsky and John Treichler

Please join us for Artists' Gallery's July show:

"Views From the Other Side"
John Treichler and Alla Podolsky

July 8 - July 31, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, July 9, 2-6 pm
Closing reception: Sunday, July 31, 2-5 pm

In Views From the Other Side, Podolsky and Treichler examine how things can appear so different when seen through new a perspective, whether it's a different viewpoint, angle, reflection, or dimension. The exhibit provides an opportunity for those who see it to experience what happens visually and emotionally when one breaks through the other side.

Podolsky, a painter who favors psychological and narrative themes, credits her inclinations to a childhood spent in Kiev, Ukraine, surrounded by ancient Byzantine iconography. "I consider myself a 'human painter,'" she says. "By that I mean that I paint people in the environments that are inextricably theirs and that bear the stamp of their humanity."

Treichler works in color and black and white photography, and enjoys creating images that stay with the viewer long after they have been seen. "I want people to look at objects and scenes and consider them in a way they had not thought about before," he says.

Artists' Gallery on the Hidden Gardens of Lambertville Tour.

As in past years, Artists' Gallery is participating in the Kalmia Club's Hidden Gardens of Lambertville Tour but this year we're doing something a little different. As usual, some of our artists will be out painting in the gardens during the tour, but this year for the first time, Artists' Gallery is one of the stops on the tour and we'll be featuring garden related artwork including some of the paintings our artists painted for last year's Tour.

The Hidden Gardens of Lambertville Tour takes place Saturday, June 11 from 10am to 4pm. If you are on the tour, please stop by Artists' Gallery to see our garden artwork and enjoy some light refreshments. On specially marked paintings, we'll be donating a portion of the sales to the Kalmia Club for their charitable causes.

Immediately following the Garden Tour is the opening reception for Jo-Ann Osnoe and Eric Rhinehart's show, "Captured Moments", from 4pm to 7pm, so come out and spend your Saturday in Lambertville.

More information about the Hidden Gardens of Lambertville tour can be found on the Kalmia Club website.

Captured Moments - Jo-Ann Osnoe and Eric Rhinehart


 "Captured Moments"
Jo-Ann Osnoe and Eric Rhinehart

June 10 - July 4, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, June 11, 4:00-7:00 pm

Osnoe finds inspiration for her richly varied landscapes and elegant florals in the Bucks County countryside where she has made her home for the past 15 years. She notes that she rarely needs to travel more than an hour to find scenery that captivates her and frequently returns to favorite locales. "There is one favorite spot I've now painted in all seasons," she says.

Rhinehart often ventures a bit further. Many of his airy watercolors are inspired by travels in the Caribbean and England. The settings range from comfortable beach houses, to pubs in the English countryside, to ferryboats in Martinique. "I'm an impressionist at heart," he says. "I use light and color to describe the physical and emotional weight of my subjects and what they tell us about who or what they are and why their existence is significant."

Eric and Jo-Ann's paintings draw you into places that are simultaneously familiar and ideal.  Please join us at the opening reception for "Captured Moments" on Saturday, June 11 from 4 to 7 pm.

Treichler Wins Sean Owen Newman Award at Phillips' Mill

"Hot Dog Johnny"
by John Treichler

John Treichler has received the Sean Owen Newman Award at the 19th Annual Phillips' Mill Photographic Exhibition for his photograph "Hot Dog Johnny". The Annual Phillips' Mill Photographic Exhibition is often referred to as "the Best Show on the East Coast."
