“In Our Nature” Exhibit At Artists’ Gallery
“MELLOW YELLOW”: This watercolor by Beatrice Bork, a resident of Hunterdon County, is featured in “In Our Nature,” on view October 8 through November 1 at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville.
Artists Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk will feature their nature-inspired paintings in the exhibit “In Our Nature,” on view October 8 through November 1 at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville.
Bork and Kazimierczyk both draw their inspiration from their outdoor experiences and say it’s simply in their nature to paint what they love. Kazimierczyk, an oil painter, expresses the beauty of the region’s landscapes, forests, and rivers. Bork’s watercolor paintings display a sensitivity to detail and composition, elevated through direct observation and love of her animal subjects.
Bork, a resident of Hunterdon County, has worked to establish her career within the genre of animal art, focusing on birds. She has received many accolades, including numerous solo and juried exhibitions at regional galleries, various institutions, and museums throughout the U.S. and abroad.
A professional artist for more than 25 years, Bork’s achievements include signature status in the prestigious international group, the Society of Animal Artists (SAA), where her work has been selected for several “Art and the Animal” exhibits, and she was named as one of the recipients of the Don Eckelberry Award for outstanding bird art. Bork has had her work displayed in a variety of publications, and is proud to have had her work acquired by collectors from around the world.
“NEAR HIGH BRIDGE”: This oil painting by Sourland Mountain resident Joe Kazimierczyk is featured in “In Our Nature,” on view October 8 through November 1 at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville.
Kazimierczyk lives on the Sourland Mountain near Neshanic Station, and finds much of his inspiration in the area immediately surrounding his home. Having always been drawn to the beauty of nature, he said he finds most of his subject matter on the hiking and bicycling trips that he loves to take — whether near his home, or further afield. His painting is a natural extension of his ramblings and explorations of the countryside. Kazimierczyk has earned his accolades as a self-taught artist and has been exhibiting his work extensively for over 10 years. He is the recipient of many awards from the area’s most prestigious juried exhibitions — including Phillips’ Mill and Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie — as well as featured solo exhibits and articles in regional publications.
Artists’ Gallery is located at 18 Bridge Street, in the heart of Lambertville. Hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit lambertvillearts.com.
