Andrew Werth receives 2 awards

Artists’ Gallery artist Andrew Werth received two awards recently for his colorful, mark-filled abstract paintings. In “Face Value”, a portrait show of artists from TAWA (the Trenton Artists Workshop Association) that is up through September 5 at the Trenton City Museum @ Ellarslie, Andrew’s “The Self” received a Best in Show award. That painting includes a nested double portrait of the artist that references themes of duality and containment.

At Muse Gallery’s summer juried exhibition in Philadelphia (up through August 29), Andrew’s painting “The Reality Problem” received a second place prize from the juror. This piece contains a perspective composition of “impossible triangles” and is about how our minds somehow manage to create a model that provides us with a usable representation of the real world.
