Paul Grecian - Best In Photography

Artists' Gallery's newest member Paul Grecian received the Best Photography Award at the 2009 Galaxy Art Show and Sale. The show which is to benefit the Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) has become a staple art event in Bucks County, PA. Grecian’s winning image entitled Downward Facing Dog is of a Great Blue Heron stretching on a log in the middle of a lake.  "It’s not just the posture of the bird that excited me" say’s Grecian, "but the symmetry I was able to create with the bird’s reflection".

The blue ribbon and cash award represent Grecian’s second time receiving the top prize, the first time was in 1999.

A Room With Two Views

"A Room With Two Views"
A 2-person show with Alla Podolsky and Doug Sardo

at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ
Nov 6 - Dec 6, 2009
Opening reception: Saturday, Nov 7 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm

Alla Podolsky’s oil paintings are a collection of new works, informed by a very personal perspective on universal themes: home, memory, internal versus external, close and remote. “The paintings are about seeing the world through the eyes of the child I once was, and seeing through the eyes of the adult I became. It's about losing home and finding it in unexpected places.”

Doug Sardo’s pastel paintings are vibrant impressionist interpretations of regional landscapes, rural architecture and river valley scenes. His paintings juxtapose brilliant complimentary colors and dynamic compositions that allow the viewers eye to blend the colors and travel into the painting. The exhibit will include new paintings from his plein aire painting excursions on the Amalfi coast, Italy, on the Polynesian islands of Raiatea and Moorea and the seaside town of Gloucester Massachusetts.

Both artists deal with similar themes in different, personal ways.
