"Colors Along The Way"
featuring Richard Harrington
and Carol Sanzalone

March 6 - April 6, 2014
Opening reception: Saturday, March 8, 4-8pm

Artists Carol Sanzalone and Richard Harrington, are pleased to announce the opening of their joint show, "Colors Along The Way", on Thursday, March 6th, at the Artists' Gallery, 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ. The exhibit, which runs through April 6th, features watercolor, acrylic, gouache and oil paintings by the two artists, who are influenced by the same elements but express them differently on canvas and paper. A reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, March 8th, from 4 to 8 pm.

"Colors Along the Way" refers to the common element that Sanzalone and Harrington share in their respective works; it is how they use them and the subject matter they choose, that creates a surprising parallel between their artistic sensibilities.

Carol Sanzalone
"West Amwell Woods"

Both artists draw from every day images around them that inspire and inform their work. Carol Sanzalone is often inspired by the natural world around her. "I love the graphic qualities of darkness and light and the impact of color" Sanzalone said. "It is so rewarding to capture a visual surprise, which I can share with the viewer in my painting."

Rich Harrington
"Nicholson, PA"

Richard Harrington, from Newtown PA, finds his inspiration for his work in the objects and buildings in urban and semi-rural areas of Philadelphia and Bucks County and shares the impact of color and light on his work. "I always find myself attracted to painting orange brick buildings against a blue sky, or a red farm tractor in a green field. I love it when the warm colors of spring are blossoming against the left over earth tones of late winter, or when the leaves of trees turn bright orange and yellow against a crisp blue autumn sky".

Two very different artists, with very different methods and very different subjects come together to exhibit work inspired by the same element: The "Colors Along The Way".
