“Poems of Color” At Artists’ Gallery

“POEMS OF COLOR”: Jane Adriance’s “Coolscape,” above, and Debbie Pisacreta’s “Where the World Stands Still,” below, are featured in “Poems of Color,” their joint exhibit at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville running November 8 through December 2. An opening reception is Saturday, November 10 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville presents “Poems of Color,” on display November 8 through December 2. This exhibit by Jane Adriance and Debbie Pisacreta looks at poetry from a visual perspective, with the two artists using shapes and colors instead of words to create visual poems. They introduce images that evoke creative interpretations not only by the artist, but by the viewer as well. An opening reception is Saturday, November 10, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Coffee and conversation will be held on the last day of the show, December 2, from 2 to 5 p.m.

Jane Adriance’s “Watercolor Poems” tend towards implied meaning with the intent to go beyond what we are likely to see in everyday life. Sometimes the perspectives are expressions that are startling and contradictory. However, color and dynamic compositions exist in harmony. As a result, a color poem is created that invites a dialogue between the viewer and this painter. 

Debbie Pisacreta’s oil painted landscapes use color to create mood and atmosphere. Like a Haiku poem, she simplifies the landscape to convey the essence of her emotional connection to the scene. Her goal as a plein air painter is to capture the feeling of a particular place and time. 

Artists’ Gallery is located at 18 Bridge Street in Lambertville. Hours are Thursdays through Sundays, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit www.LambertvilleArts.com.
