"Lyrical" at Artists' Gallery

This is the final weekend for "Lyrical" - a group show that I'm part of at:

Artists' Gallery
18 Bridge Street
Lambertville, NJ 08530  [map

The show is a celebration of poetry and song through fine art.   Each painting in the show is accompanied by a lyric or verse from song or poem which in some way relates to the artists' inspiration for that piece.  All 18 Artists' Gallery artists are included in this show.

Here are 2 pieces I have in the show, and the poem I chose to accompany each:

"Stony Brook Boulders"
11x14" oil on board

Pine Forest 

Let us go now into the forest.
Trees will pass by your face,
and I will stop and offer you to them,
but they cannot bend down.
The night watches over its creatures,
except for the pine trees that never change:
the old wounded springs that spring
blessed gum, eternal afternoons.
If they could, the trees would lift you
and carry you from valley to valley,
and you would pass from arm to arm,
a child running
from father to father.

--Gabriela Mistral

"Autumn Gold"
16x20" oil on canvas

Fall, Leaves, Fall 

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.

I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night's decay
Ushers in a drearier day.

--Emily Jane Brontë

The show ends this Sunday, March 2.  The weekend should be snow free so come out, see the show, and enjoy a day in town before the next snowstorm!   Artists' Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11am-6pm.

In addition to the 2 paintings above, I have a few more hanging in one of the other rooms:

Special note: the City of Lambertville will bag all parking meters beginning December 17th through Christmas Day - that certainly makes life easier for holiday shopping.

I hope you can stop by and see the show!

Barns & Farms, Sunshine & Joy

Some paintings of barns and farm fields, currently hanging in "Sunshine & Joy", running June 7 through June 30, 2013  at:

Artists' Gallery
18 Bridge Street
Lambertville, NJ  [map]

Gallery hours: every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11am-6pm

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Skillman Barn"
6x8" oil on board

And old barn on the Folusiak Farm, Montgomery Twp near Blawenberg, NJ.   The property is owned by Montgomery Twp and is preserved open space.  Looks can be deceiving, and the barn is pretty sturdy - a farmer still cuts hay in these fields and fills the old barn to the ceiling with hay bales every year.  

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Hopewell Valley Clouds"
8x10" oil on board

This scene is at the Saint Michael's Farm Preserve, looking towards Hopewell, NJ.

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Clover Hill Barns"
11x14" oil on canvas

I've painted this group of barns pretty often, and the cows that are usually out in this field.  But the cows weren't out today so I concentrated on the barns.  It's an active dairy farm at the corner of Amwell Rd (Rt 514) and Cider Mill Road near Clover Hill, NJ.

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Woodfern Sky"
11x14" oil on canvas

This field is on Woodfern Road near Neshanic Station, NJ.  I love skies like this and the rows of greenery really pulled me into the scene.

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Clearview Farm"
11x14" oil on canvas

Clearview Farm is on Rocktown Road near Ringoes, NJ.  Unionville Vineyards is a short distance behind me here.

I consider myself fortunate to be surrounded by such great scenery, here in central New Jersey!
