Journeys - recent works by Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk

"Journeys" 

recent works by
Beatrice Bork
and
Joe Kazimierczyk

July 6 - August 6, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday July 8, 5-8:30 pm 
Coffee and Conversation: Sunday, August 6, 2-4 pm


Art can take you places. Stepping into an art galley is an adventure as you follow along on an artist's journey of personal exploration, visiting places you've never been, or seeing familiar subjects in new ways.

Fine artists Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk invite you to join them on their journeys of discovery, as they explore the great outdoors from their own unique viewpoint and medium. Beatrice enjoys immersing herself in careful portrayal of animal and bird subjects through watercolor, while Joe explores the grandeur of landscape and sense of place through oils. All are invited to view the exhibit at Artists' Gallery.

While being in nature is the connecting motivation of both Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk, each has a very different point of inspiration. Beatrice enjoys the aspect of discovery, and explores the intricacies of her subjects, concentrating on birds. Joe relishes the outdoors and is an avid hiker - inspired by the "bigger picture", he focuses the landscape as he explores the parks and forests of northern New Jersey. This exhibit encompasses not only tangible destinations and subject of inspirations, but also an expression of the artists' personal journeys. Both artists feel a connection to nature, where they are rejuvenated, re-centered and ultimately inspired.

Visit the event website for more information about this show.
 
And don't forget - while we feature 2 artists each month,
all 16 Artists' Gallery artists have work on display,
and there is always a wide variety of artwork to enjoy.

"Jersey Shore"
recent works by
Bill Jersey
and
Maxine Shore

June 8 - July 2, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday June 10, 5-8 pm 


Put the work of Bill Jersey and Maxine Shore in the same room and what do you get? Blazing color - superb compositions - and a delightful irrepressible experience of - you guessed it - "JERSEY SHORE" - it's their world as they see it.

For over 60 years, Bill Jersey has gained honors as a pre-eminent maker of television documentaries. His major awards include two Peabodys, two national Emmys, two academy award nominations and a gold medal for Lifetime achievement in the Arts from the national Arts club in New York city. Since moving to Lambertville his major focus has been on his oil paintings. Multiple awards have come to him from Phillips Mill, Artsbridge, New Hope Arts and other curated venues.

Oil painter Maxine Shore, whose work can be found in many personal and institutional collections, has exhibited her work throughout the United States. She strives to create work that is suffused with color and light in an effort to capture the memory of a special place in a particular time. Her goal is to encourage viewers to reevaluate how they perceive nature. This is summed up in the quote from Marcel Proust: "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in seeing with new eyes."

"Quiet Spaces" recent works by Gail Bracegirdle and Debbie Pisacreta

"Quiet Spaces"
recent works by
Gail Bracegirdle
and
Debbie Pisacreta


May 4 - June 4, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday May 13, 4-8 pm 


Both Gail and Debbie's paintings evoke a quiet and calm feeling where the choice of subjects and the use of muted palettes contribute to the sense of contemplation and reflection that both artists feel when they paint.

Gail Bracegirdle's watercolors are filled with light and color. She prefers to work from life or from sketches made on location in order to observe the effects of direct and reflected light and shadow on her subject. Gail's goal in painting is "to capture the illusion of movement or sound, a quiet moment, a momentary pleasure, an intriguing juxtaposition of images, light and shadow."

Debbie Pisacreta also works directly from life. A plein-air landscape painter from Lambertville, her oil paintings depict the gentleness of the town, the river, and the surrounding farms. Debbie says "I paint on location as much as possible and often make multiple sketches and studies for my painting until I feel I have captured my emotional connection with the scene. My goal is to create a visual story that communicates the feeling of that place and time."

"Reflections" - new works by Alla Podolsky and Joseph Zogorski

"Reflections"
new works by
Alla Podolsky
and
Joseph Zogorski

April 6 - April 30, 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday April 8, 3-6 pm
 
Reflections

Reflections of the past and present, both emotional and literal, are the subject of the new works shown at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ

Intimations of the past, of nature and human nature, beauty and transition, suffuse Joseph Zogorski's photography. Joseph grew up in a verdant, still largely rural area of Bucks County in the 1970s on land his grandfather, father and uncles cleared of virgin timber over a century ago. Hearing their stories, feeling their presence still, combined with deep appreciation for the special beauty of this region, are all manifest in Joseph's imagery.

Alla Podolsky's work is naturally reflective. "I paint memories and places, people and emotions. Contemplation and perception are essential to what I do and come organically from my background and the kind of art I have always admired and aspired to create: narrative, but not necessarily literal; a little bit mysterious and evocative. Both people and places in my work serve as mirrors for my own reflections and those of the viewer."
