Maybe you live here, in the Delaware River Valley. Or perhaps you visit often. Like so many others, you may be well acquainted with the historic towns and farmsteads, the streams and rivers, bridges and byways. Nonetheless, rest assured that what you believe to be familiar you’ll find fresh and new again in the oils of Jo-Ann Osnoe and pastels of Doug Sardo.

The proof is on display in their new show, “Familiar Places,” at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville.

“Jo-Ann and Doug deliver remarkably fresh perspectives on the iconic scenery of the region,” said Gallery spokesperson Laurie Nicholson. “Their insight is genuinely earned, too. Few artists are as committed to working on the scene, in the environment as Jo-Ann and Doug are. They are, frankly, part of the local landscape themselves.”

“Familiar Places” runs Friday, November 5 through Sunday, December 5. Three Gallery events will offer the public multiple opportunities to become familiar with Osnoe and Sardo and their work: The artists will host an opening reception Saturday, November 6, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. They will also be present for a “Meet the Artists” evening on Saturday, November 13, from 6 to 9 p.m. Finally, the show will close on Sunday, December 5, with “Coffee & Conversation” 2 to 5 p.m.
