We've expanded our hours of operation, and Artists' Gallery is now open 11am to 6 pm every Thursday. So our new hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11am to 6pm each day.
Additionally, during the summer we're open Friday evenings until 9pm or so for the Lambertville / New Hope Fireworks - as long as the fireworks are on for that evening. (They sometimes get canceled due to weather or unsafe river levels).
"Artists are storytellers. And colors are our words."
Those are the words of painter Alla Podolsky. She and Charlie
Katzenbach have more than a
few stories to share. Many will be on display in "True Colors," Katzenbach's
and Podolsky's joint show running Thursday, July 4, through Sunday, August 4.
"Color is a universal thing," says Podolsky. "At the same time, it's incredibly
personal. We have such visceral reactions to colors. We love some, we hate
others. To an artist, color is a language. It's how we communicate. It's how we
compose. It's how we translate. It's what connects all artists, no matter what
the medium, or style, or form."
Katzenbach seems to chase the rainbow for this show. She paints boldly with
the primary colors on glass planes in various geometric designs often
reminiscent of Amish quilts.
"I've been painting the spectrum for some time," Katzenbach says. "I try to
capture the brilliant colors that I see as the crystals in my studio window
break the light into its components. There is an exuberant joy in the cascade
of colors that make up the rainbow. It is also a cultural and political symbol
celebrating unity despite diversity for both the civil right and GLBT movement.
As a person affected by both this means much to me."
The Trevor Project to Benefit
Katzenbach and Podolsky will donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of
their work to The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing
crisis intervention and
suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and
