During the month of March, I'm having a 2-man show with Michael Schweigart at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.   As things stand now, this is the biggest show I have scheduled in 2010 so I hope you have a chance to see it.

Mike Schweigart is also a painter of landscapes, but his work is much more detailed than mine - it's really amazing to look at his work up close.  Me on the other hand, I take a much looser approach and tend to use the character of the paint to suggest detail.  The collection of new work that I'll be showing includes a number of sunsets and cloudscapes - a subject that's really been catching my eye as a painter this past year.

This is one of the newer paintings I'm showing - it's a farm near my home right after the big showstorm we had just before Christmas.  This scene was a short while before sunset:

12x24" oil on canvas

The show runs March 5 through April 4, 2010.

What's with the new location for Artists' Gallery?   After 15 years on Coryell Street, an opportunity came up to move the gallery to a better location at 18 Bridge Street, right in the heart of town.  We've all been very busy making this move happen in a pretty short period of time, and the gallery's first day of business on Bridge Street will be this Friday, March 5.

Here's the Mayor of Lambertville with gallery members Jennifer Cadoff and Carol Sanzalone at the ribbon cutting ceremony for our new space:

We're also having a small reception this Sunday afternoon, March 7 from 2-5pm since it's our 1st weekend of business in the new space and we'll need to work out the logistics of doing receptions here.   Please join us if you can, and check out our new digs!

And for a bit of nostolgia, this painting which I'll have in "Local Color" is scene from near the front door of our old gallery on Coryell Street - a view I'd see often when leaving the gallery in the evening.   And I just realized how appropriate the title is, as we've just ended our 15 year stint there:
