“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.”

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”.
