Wanderings & Wonderings - August at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ

"Wanderings and Wonderings"
a 2-person show with Joe Kazimierczyk and Michael Schweigart
Aug 9 - Sept 2, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, Aug 11, 5-8 pm

This August I am teaming up with Michael Schweigart for a 2-man show of our "Wanderings & Wonderings". The show runs August 9 - September 2 at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, with an opening reception on Saturday, August 11 from 5pm to 8pm.

"Reflecting November"
at Sourland Ecosystem Preserve, Hopewell, NJ
7x14" oil on panel

 For the past few years, my inspiration for painting has come from hiking trips where I enjoy wandering the forests and mountains or northern New Jersey, and I continue that theme in this show.

American Beech tree
6x8", oil on board

My work in this show focuses on 2 main locations: the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, which I never tire of exploring, and the Sourland Mountain much closer to home - literally my back yard.

Mike Schweigart's work shows more signs of civiliation, as he paints scenes along the back roads of coastal Maine, eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I think I'm more of a wanderer, Mike is more of a wonderer. Together, I think we put on a good show.

"Dunnfield Winter"
Dunnfield Creek at the Delaware Water Gap, NJ
8x10" oil on linen on board

This is the most work that I will have on display at any one time this year, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and see the show.

"Wanderings and Wonderings" runs August 9 through September 2, with an opening reception on Saturday, August 11, 5-8 pm at:
Artists' Gallery
18 Bridge Street
Lambertville, NJ

Gallery hours: Thursday through Sunday 11am-6pm

at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ

Jan 4 - Feb 4, 2018
Opening Reception: Sunday Jan 7, 1-4 pm

This winter we're doing something a little bit different at Artists' Gallery. Instead of our traditional group show with all 16 artists, we're featuring 4 artists each month over a 4 month period. In January I will be one of the featured artists along with Beatrice Bork, Maxine Shore and Bill Jersey.

I'll have a mix of older and newer work, with some new things I've been trying recently. I hope you get a chance to stop by and see the show.
