The Other Side - the art of Jane Adriance and Alan J. Klawans


"The Other Side"
the art of
Jane Adriance
and
Alan J. Klawans
  
  April 4 - May 5, 2019
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 6, 3-6 pm


Please join us for "The Other Side", featuring the artwork of Jane Adriance and Alan Klawans.

Jane and Alan use different mediums to express themselves from different points of view. Alan uses his computer and a digital camera to depict strong and bold abstractions to create a visual story from his everyday experience. Jane Adriance paints with watercolors and her point of view is to paint startling contradictions between her everyday experience and the unknown.

Both of these artists invite a dialogue between the observer and the work of art. The result brings pleasure as well as inquiry.

And don't forget - along with our featured exhibit,
all 16 of our professional artists continuously have their work on exhibit.
We look forward to your next visit to Artists' Gallery,

Poems of Color - new works by Jane Adriance and Debbie Pisacreta

"Poems of Color"
the art of
Jane Adriance
and
Debbie Pisacreta
  
  Nov 8 - Dec 2 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, Nov 10, 5-8:30 pm
Coffee and Conversation: Sunday, Dec 2, 2-5 pm

This exhibit by Jane Adriance and Debbie Pisacreta looks at poetry from a visual perspective. These two artists use shapes and colors instead of words to create visual poems. They introduce images that evoke creative interpretations not only by the artist, but by the viewer as well.

Jane Adriance's "Watercolor Poems" tend towards implied meaning with the intent to go beyond what we are likely to see in everyday life. Sometimes the perspectives are expressions that are startling and contradictory. However, color and dynamic compositions exist in harmony. As a result, a color poem is created that invites a dialogue between the viewer and this painter. 

Debbie Pisacreta's oil painted landscapes use color to create mood and atmosphere. Like a Haiku poem, Debbie simplifies the landscape to convey the essence of her emotional connection to the scene. Her goal as a plein air painter is to capture the feeling of a particular place and time.

Above and Beyond - new works by Bill Jersey and Maxine Shore


"Above and Beyond"
the art of
Bill Jersey
and
Maxine Shore
  
  September 6 - 30, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 8, 5-8 pm



Fine artists Maxine Shore and Bill Jersey will exhibit oil paintings expressing their personal visions of landscape that go above and beyond the natural world.

Maxine Shore is an award-winning artist who has exhibited her work throughout the USA and is included in many private, public and corporate collections. She is a contemporary colorist who uses color and light in an effort to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Inspiration for her paintings often comes from travel to places near and far that spark her imagination. Working exclusively in oils, she relies on watercolor or pencil sketches as well as her camera to record images that she works on in her studio. Such was the case with the painting, Cinque Terre, which depicted a town in Italy she visited recently. A photograph of the painting was featured in the New York Times.

Shore is more interested in interpreting how a place makes her feel than simply reproducing how it looks. "In my art nature provides a springboard for the color and light I envision in my imagination. Reflections of light on water, the way a breeze animates a scene, the filtering of light through leaves - these natural phenomena illustrate what I enjoy exploring in my paintings. Painting has given me tremendous pleasure and I am delighted that my work conveys that spirit of joy to others."

Bill Jersey's route to success as a painter was very different than for most artists. As a child, art became his escape from the constraints of a fundamentalist upbringing. A short stint in the US Navy gave Bill a chance to attend a Christian college as an art major. But in a strange twist of fate the religious film company that hired him was contracted to make its first commercial feature. It became the iconic horror film, "The Blob" on which Jersey was the Art Director.

But documentaries, not features, became Jersey's career. For 60 years he produced award winning films for networks and PBS, but art was always his passion. When Bill and his wife moved to Lambertville in 2008, art became his primary focus. In painting - as with film - Jersey seeks to go beyond mere observation, working to express with color and form the unique qualities of an historic barn or clouds or the spirit of a night sky, all from the view of a fresh eye.
