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!

Neshanic River - Two Seasons, Two Views

Some paintings currently hanging in "Sunshine & Joy", running June 7 through June 30, 2013  at:

Artists' Gallery

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


Joe Kazimierczyk
"Spring on the Neshanic"
12x24" oil on canvas

The Neshanic River in springtime, at Montgomery Road, Hillsborough Twp, near Neshanic Station, NJ.    In this scene, I'm standing on the river bank.



Joe Kazimierczyk
"Neshanic Winter"
8x10" oil on linen on board

This winter scene is of the same spot on the Neshanic River, but from the Montgomery Road bridge over the river.   Moving the viewpoint 25 feet higher makes a bigger difference in the scene than the change of seasons does.

Bull's Island - Two Interpretations

"Sunshine & Joy", my show with Doug Sardo, continues through June 30, 2013 at Artists' Gallery, 18 Bridge St, Lambertville, NJ.   Of all the paintings we have in the show, there is only one subject in common - the pedestrian suspension bridge at Bull's Island Recreation Area.

I thought it would be interesting to show how two different artists interpret the same subject, so here is my version done in oils, followed by Doug Sardo's version painted with pastels:

Joe Kazimierczyk
"At Bulls Island"
11x14" oil on canvas on board


Doug Sardo
"Bull's Island Bridge"
pastel on sanded paper


If you haven't seen "Sunshine & Joy" yet, it's up for 2 more weeks, and there will be a small closing reception on Sunday, June 30 from 3:00 to 5:00pm at:

For the month of June, I'm teaming up with Doug Sardo in a show that celebrates the sense of joy found in the sunlit places of this region. This will be my biggest show of 2013 and I'll have about 20 oil paintings on display - my usual local landscapes including a number of new works.  In contrast to my oil paintings, Doug works in pastels - we both paint colorful landscapes but I think the contrast in media and styles will make for a very good show.
