Perceptions - the art of Jane Adriance and Joseph DeFay

"Perceptions"

new works by
Jane Adriance
and
Joseph DeFay

November 9 - December 3, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, November 11, 4-7 pm


Artists' Gallery is pleased to present "Perceptions," an exhibition featuring the watercolors of Jane Adriance and the photographs of Joseph DeFay. Both artists have unique perceptions of the world they see around them. They reflect a perspective that is not based on what we normally call "reality". This photographer and painter offer images that may be surprising and at the same time compliment each other with a beauty that offers new perspectives in opposing mediums.

Working with watercolors, Jane intends to go beyond what she perceives in her everyday life. A kind of poetic license to reflect a point of view that can be startling and contradictory and yet beautiful. Jane uses color as her primary focus which is embraced by dynamic compositions of light, line textures and space.

Joseph's photographs tend to pull out the simpler aspects of everyday life so they can be seen with a renewed beauty, and an exciting new perspective. "A completely open mind, favoring no particular philosophy, allows me to fully accept what each raw opportunity to create provides, and decide if it is to be refined and shared. Traditional artistic concerns prove an interesting challenge when capturing people, places, or objects in the moment, but are always held in high regard".

Momentum at Rest - the art of Richard Harrington Laura Rutherford Renner

"Momentum at Rest"

new works by
Richard Harrington
and
Laura Rutherford Renner

October 5 - November 5, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 7, 4-8 pm


Artists Laura Rutherford Renner and Richard Harrington are pleased to announce the opening of their joint show, "Momentum at Rest" on Thursday, October 5th, at Artists' Gallery, 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ. The exhibit, which runs through Sunday, November 5th, features watercolor, gouache, acrylic, and oil paintings by the two artists. An Opening Reception with the artists will be held on Saturday, October 7th, from 4 to 8 pm.

Laura Rutherford Renner, who maintains her studio in Collingswood, NJ, often uses the sights from her hometown and Southern New Jersey as the starting point for her work.

Rutherford Renner finds that the light at different times of the year can make something that may appear as mundane an interesting subject for a painting.

The title of the exhibition, "Momentum at Rest", was initially proposed by Rutherford Renner after sketching her cat, Lulu, dozing in the sun in her studio. "Momentum at Rest is a celebration of reflective light on objects and figures in a defining moment. My inspiration for these painting is light on forms, especially reflected light within shadows. That is something that attracts me to paint a certain scene or subject" says Rutherford Renner." I also find the reflections of light on water to be especially intriguing, and I enjoy the challenge capturing that effect in my work. I always have a camera and a sketchbook with me, so I can do a sketch and take a photo whenever I'm inspired."

Richard Harrington, of Newtown, PA, finds his inspiration for Momentum at Rest in the mid-20th century chromed and finned marvels produced by Detriot automakers. "When Laura approached me with this title, I immediately thought of vehicles that were designed to look fast or powerful even while standing still" says Harrington." Some of the works in this exhibition of vehicles left sitting in fields I painted plein air, while others of lovingly preserved or restored vehicles were painted from photographs. I enjoy the beauty in their designs and character whether they are rusting and dented, or look as if they had just been sold off the showroom floor."

Points of View - the art of Carol Sanzalone and Michael Schweigart

"Points of View"

new works by
Carol Sanzalone
and
Michael Schweigart

September 7 - October 1, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9, 4-7 pm
Closing Tea and Conversation: Sunday, October 1, 3-6 pm



Our September exhibit features work by Carol Sanzalone and Michael Schweigart. Painting images of the natural world with unique and personal "Points of View", both artists share a creative delight in capturing an image with glorious color and marvelous textures.

Working in watercolor and acrylic, Carol focuses on the graphic quality of the subject using transparent washes of color. The way that natural light and shadows enliven and enrich everyday images, and create wonderful shapes and textures, inspires her work. Carol's paintings have been exhibited widely in solo, group and invitational exhibits. She has taught art and worked in Graphic Design for many years. When she creates a work, or considers a subject, she is always drawing on that history.

Traveling near and far, Michael is inspired by things he encounters along the way. He works in acrylic and oil approaching subjects from his unique perspective. Schweigart combines technique and medium to craft paintings that depict cityscapes, seascapes and bucolic landscapes. His works display texture and atmosphere, with a presence of man and a sense of place. Michael has been exhibiting his work in galleries and museums throughout the northeast and beyond for over thirty years.

The edge of a grassy field, the transparent reflected colors of the season or a still life from nature, are images that Carol and Michael explore, each with a personal creative vision and unique approach to developing a point of view. This exhibit is not to be missed!

Images and Imaginings - the art of Claudia Fouse Fountaine and Alan J. Klawans

"Images and Imaginings"

Paintings by Claudia Fouse Fountaine
Digital art by Alan J. Klawans

August 10 - September 3, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday August 12, 3-6 pm 



Claudia Fouse Fountaine is an award winning local artist. Along with a BFA and an MFA, she has experience as a museum docent, and an art teacher. She's shown her work in galleries in San Francisco, New York, Brooklyn and New Hope, before becoming a member of Artists' Gallery in Lambertville. This will be her second two person show there. Whereas previously her colorful acrylic paintings depicted mostly bucolic scenes flowers and farms, in her new work Claudia seems to be exploring more personal subjects, and painting with a bit more of an expressionistic touch.

Alan J. Klawans has enjoyed an accomplished career as a graphic designer and printmaker. He has always been interested in the structure of things. For example: buildings, ships, machinery, utility towers and industrial structures. In this exhibition he has observed the structure of flowers and plants. His previous work has been exhibited widely, including the Whitney Museum, New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and the Woodmere Art Museum, Philadelphia.
