Feels Like Home - Claudia Fouse Fountaine and Debbie Pisacreta

"Feels Like Home"
Claudia Fouse Fountaine
and Debbie Pisacreta

June 9 - July 4, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday June 11, 4-8 pm

"Feels Like Home" is the perfect title for the June exhibition on view at Artists' Gallery this month. The two artists whose work is on display here not only live close by, but also choose as their subject the beautiful surroundings with which they are blessed.

We see the pastel light and shadow in the Victorian neighborhoods of Lambertville, as well as fields of lavender and local farms in Debbie Pisacreta's tender landscapes.

"I am in love with my town", she says. "I am drawn to a scene not only by the qualities of light and color it has, but also by the quiet feeling it inspires in me".

Claudia Fouse Fountaine's work gives us a glimpse of intimate interiors, as well as animals and farmland in nearby Bucks County.

"My paintings tend to be colorful and lively, with rarely a straight line", says Fountaine. "They are full of energy. Even the inanimate objects seem to be alive".

Both artists have exhibited extensively and won awards locally. This show will be up from June 9th to July 4th, with the Opening Reception being held Saturday, June 11th, 4 - 8pm.

"Feels Like Home" is a delightful interpretation of the bountiful beauty of our area as seen through the eyes of two artists who know it well.
