The HOBART Fall 2022 art show will feature some of the area’s leading sculptors and artists spanning the Delaware river region from New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The show, on view September 24 and 25 and October 1 and 2 at Steinbeiser’s Farm, 718 County Road 519 in Frenchtown, offers a unique opportunity to experience “Art In The Native Landscape,” featuring sculpture installations by contemporary artists in a outdoor private setting. The exhibit is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Both an indoor and outdoor show, guests are invited to explore the property’s several outbuildings, including an historic antique barn, the Hannah Shaw Wagon House, which will house sculpture, paintings, mixed media art, and contemporary glass art. All artwork is for sale directly from the artists.

Artists include Alix Bacon, Anabel Bouza, Jacqueline Haut Evans, Wayne Freitag, Barry Good, Don Gonzalez, Martha Gonzalez, Harry Gordon, Annie Haslam, Gloria Kosco, Rory Mahon, Haley Manchon, Jessica Mueller Snyder, Joyce Murphy, Lisa Naples, Mike Pantuso, Erika Rachel, Peter Rosenthal, Stacie Speer Scott, Steven Snyder, Paul Steinbeiser, Annelies van Dommelen, Mayfield Williams, and Summer Yates.

Steinbeiser, who is hosting this event, specializes in native landscape design and custom stonework, and will be available for consultations and discussions about embracing concepts of sustainability to create a healthy landscape environment using native plants in organic and whimsical natural designs.

In keeping with his love of beauty, history, and sustainability, Steinbeiser is a believer in restoration and preservation of old structures, such as the reclaimed Hannah Shaw Wagon House, circa 1830-1840, originally from Princeton, which he had relocated and restored. His own home and other outbuildings are based on a 1780s Delaware Valley farmhouse in which he used reclaimed beams, flooring, and other materials saved over the years.

HOBART 2022 is part of a collaborative effort by River Arts Collective, a collective of area arts organizations, galleries, and businesses.
