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.
