“A Creative Journey” Dual Exhibit at Artists’ Gallery
“WISHES IN THE WIND”: This watercolor by Gail Bracegirdle is featured in “A Creative Journey,” on view June 8 through July 2 at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville. The exhibit will also highlight watercolors by Carol Sanzalone.
To honor the late artist Gail Bracegirdle, “A Creative Journey,” a special featured gallery exhibit with Carol Sanzalone, will be showcased June 8 through July 2 at the Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville. Inspired by images in nature, and the patterns of life, the exhibit highlights a variety of creative techniques by two watercolor artists.
An opening reception is on Saturday, June 10 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Bracegirdle’s paintings express the “environmentally sensitive nature of the medium,” as she presents images with color and texture in watercolor. The variations she creates, allow for the capture of the visual characteristics of each image, and share her interest in the subject.
Bracegirdle studied textile design at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, and she enjoyed a career in that field for many years. In addition to painting, she taught at Artworks in Trenton; summer workshops in Ocean City, NJ; plein air workshops in South Carolina and New Mexico; and children’s summer camps at Silver Lake Nature Center as a member of The Artists of Bristol.
A longtime member at Artists’ Gallery, and resident of Bucks County, she has also been represented by additional galleries in Washington Crossing, Pa., and Bordentown. A signature member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Society, her award-winning work has been exhibited in group and solo shows throughout the region and is included in private collections in the United States, Europe, and Australia.
Sanzalone will also be exhibiting her watercolor and acrylic works in this exhibit. A longtime gallery member, art teacher, and graphic designer, her paintings visually express the light, shadow, and color patterns that enrich images, both realistically and abstractly, to express her impression of a subject. She is always drawing on those experiences on her “Creative Journey.”
Artists’ Gallery is located at 18 Bridge Street, in the heart of Lambertville. Hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit LambertvilleArts.com.
