Hidden Garden of Lambertville 2008

Just as last year, Artist's Gallery artists teamed up with the Kalmia Club, and many of us were out painting on the Hidden Gardens of Lambertville Tour this weekend. And just like last year, we'll be having a special exhibit of these paintings in the fall with a portion of the sales going to benefit the Kalmia Club for all of the charity work that they do. (You'll hear more about that in September or October.)

Here are a few images of the artists in action - photos courtesy John Treichler, our gallery photographer, who forgot to take his self portrait for us to share with you:

June Show - Naturally

Beatrice Bork and Taylor Oughton come together in a featured exhibit at Artists‘ Gallery June 6–July 6, 2008 with an opening reception on Saturday June 7, 6-9 pm.

"Naturally", a revealing exhibit of watercolors and acrylics of an innate, unadorned and unadulterated seeing of the natural world by Bork and Oughton, will feature art of human eyes opened to a world in which we all live.

Beatrice Bork is a member of the Society of Animal Artists (SAA), an association of international artists, devoted to promoting excellence in the portrayal of the creatures sharing our planet. Her honors include: Don Eckelberry Award for bird art, solo shows such as Birds and Deviations at the Brodsky Gallery—ETS, For the birds… Princeton University, and group exhibits and tours including Art and the Animal at various museums throughout the U.S., 20th International Exhibition on Animals in Art at Louisiana State University, as well as representation in public and private collections, and publications such as Wildlife Art magazine.

There is no verbal statement that could possibly convey just how much inspiration the natural world brings me. Each subject and condition in itself is unique. My passion is fulfilled through creating art, which is an interpretation of my deep gratitude for the earth we all share. —Beatrice Bork
