featuring Charles David Viera
and Debbie Pisacreta
November 5 - December 6, 2015
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 7, 4-8 pm
An exhibition of shared inspirations by two well known local artists will be on
display at Artists Gallery in Lambertville N.J. this November. Although Debbie
Pisacreta's landscape paintings suggest a more quiet reflective quality while
Charles David Viera's expressionist animals paintings resonate action they both
admit to being inspired by such diverse masters as Matisse, Hopper and
Fairfield Porter." I think any one that is familiar with those artists
mentioned will see and appreciate our connection when they see the exhibition"
says Pisacreta." Both of us try to do as much as we can with color and use it
as a vehicle to touch the viewer" adds Viera. "Debbie's oils have a wonderful
calm, almost pastel like quality about them while my works are almost violent
with slashes of paint and line that I use to suggest movement and power".
This is the first opportunity for the long time friends to exhibit together.
Debbie Pisacreta is a resident of Lambertville and can frequently be seen
creating "plein aire" landscapes in and around that scenic town many of which
are included in the exhibit. Viera will offer vibrant paintings of horses,
birds and other wildlife images that deliver an expressionist impact.This is
his third show at Artists' Gallery and it will be Debbie Pisacreta's first.
