“Winter Light” Exhibit At Gallery 13 North

“WASHINGTON CROSSING BRIDGE IN THE WINTER”: This acrylic painting by Marcel Juillerat is currently on view at the Monmouth Museum. Gallery 13 North, in Lambertville, is representing Juillerat in their January exhibit, “Winter Light.”

Swiss-born Marcel Juillerat joins a roster of artists represented by Gallery 13 North in Lambertville. During his 40 years as a painter, Juillerat has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the region. This solo exhibition, called “Winter Light,” will be a collection centered around winter landscapes of New Jersey, specifically Jacobs Creek, Washington Crossing, as well as Baldpate Mountain area.

The exhibition, on view from January 15 to March 15, 2017, includes several medium to large-scale works capturing the winter feeling of this region in different media, such as oil, acrylic, and watercolor. His winter landscapes focus on the interplay between daylight reflecting and snow.

“I am thrilled to represent Marcel Juillerat, one of the finest landscape artists of his generation. Gallery 13 North is presenting a solo exhibition with over 15 of his current works. If you are looking for something enchanting and whimsical, “Winter Light” will take you on an enchanting walk through the countryside in winter,” says Majell Yerenburg, gallery director at Gallery 13 North.

Juillerat emerged in the early 1960’s after earning his degree from La Chaux-de-Fonds School in Switzerland. Moving to the U.S.A. in 1969, he worked for Tiffany and Company as a designer before joining Lenox China where he designed the White House dinnerware for former first lady Nancy Reagan. One of Juillerat’s paintings, “Washington Crossing Bridge in the Winter” was displayed in the Winter Wonders Exhibition at Monmouth Museum.

His solo exhibition at Gallery 13 North is located at 13 North Union Street, Lambertville. Hours are Monday–Saturday, 10 a.m.–6 p.m. and Sunday noon–5 p.m. For more information, visit www.gallery13north.com.
