4th  ANNUAL POINTS OF VIEW ART SHOW AND SALE

OCTOBER  27-29, 2017

"4TH Annual Points of View", an Art Show and Sale featuring five local artists, will be presented at the Laceworks at 287 S. Main Street, Lambertville, Friday, October 27th through Sunday, October 29th. The show will begin with an Opening Reception on Friday, October 27th from 7 - 9 pm. The show continues Saturday and Sunday, October 28th and29th from 12 – 5:00 PM. For more information, contact JeanneChesterton@gmail.com or Ilene@IleneRubin.com.

Once again, the show will be held at The Laceworks, at the framing studio of Stuart Clark. It is located on the lower rear parking lot side of the building. Parking is free and abundant. Entrances are on the street side or around the back on the lower level. Look for the banners.

Showcasing their work are Ilene Rubin, Jeanne Chesterton, Pat Powell, Rodney Miller, and, Bob Richey. All art is for sale.

Jeanne Chesterton and Ilene Rubin have been creating Art Shows in the Bucks County area for three yers, and now four years. Along with a who’s who list of local artists, they have found that joining talent with location to exhibit and sell art has been quite the lucrative endeavor. It’s a win-win for any serious collector of art or a casual tourist wanting to go home with a little piece of Bucks County in the New Hope/Lambertville area. 

A few of the aspects that they like so much about the Point of View Art Show at the Laceworks are that the art of Jeanne Chesterton and  Ilene Rubin along with Pat Powell, Rodney Miller and Bob Richey complement each other while individually, are visually very different. There is something for everyone with little to no overlap of style or range. Also, each in their own right have amassed their own following and niche in an otherwise crowded art field in the Bucks County region. It’s a unique blend with a wide price range, so that anyone who is a collector will certainly have a diverse choice, while a casual tourist will easily find a treasure in a treasure box of a gallery.

Ilene Rubin is a national award winning Bucks County artist and author. Concentrating mostly on landscapes and still life paintings in Oils and Pastels, Rubin's paintings explode with color. Her paintings have been accepted into juried art shows in Colorado, Illinois and the communities in and around Bucks County, PA. She also has published two novels, both available on Amazon.com. Ilene’s art has been shown on the Natural Awakenings Magazine cover as well as at the Phillips Mill 86th Annual Juried Art Show. Ms. Rubin will be showing new paintings created in the last year, including a few selections which, while a departure from her recognizable style, are still true to her urgent desire to capture the vanishing highways and byways. According to Ms. Rubin, “It’s a moment in time that I’m compelled to take hold of. It could be a split second along the road or by a field, when I see something that captures the timeless dignity of this place that is so pastoral and serene and simultaneously vibrant and growing- and that might disappear through development all too soon. With still life, there is a simple yet defined energy that reveals how we view the things surrounding us, and that challenges me to give them dimension and charm. These are the moments I want to paint. This is why I paint; because I breathe.”

Having established her reputation as a still life painter in the realist tradition, Jeanne Chesterton is excited once again to be exhibiting her paintings in the annual “Points of View” show.  She’s pleased to be introducing more than a dozen new pieces which feature her ever popular metals, glassware, florals and fruit.  As to be expected, Chesterton’s compositions manifest harmony as she establishes a comfortable relationship among her objects.  Staging the tableau is as important to her as is the layering of color and attention to detail.  Chesterton is an award-winning artist and has exhibited in over 200 shows including Phillips’ Mill and the Ellarslie Open.

Patricia MCI. Powell: As a long time resident of Bucks County, she has found a perfect place to inspire and rekindle an old passion for art and painting. Says Pat, “I restarted painting at Bucks County Community College and continue with private and group lessons as well as workshops. I have shown and sold at local shows and have gifted many works to family and friends in whom I have perceived a liking or desire to give them a home. My philosophy regarding my work is to be inspired by what I see, be it nature or a still life composition or portrait, and to create my own interpretation in what I hope is a painterly way. I also hope my paintings make the viewer happy, thoughtful or jog a memory of the near or distant past. I think art should speak to the viewer and take him or her to another place of his or her own. Seeing something “new” in the same painting is always a wondrous discovery. 

Rodney Miller is a Digital Abstract Artist and Photographer. He attended Philadelphia Community College and Tyler School of Art, Temple University majoring in photography. “I have over 35 years of experience as an artist/photographer. As a fine art photographer, I love to create images that stir the unconscious and riles emotions. Blending both digital and traditional photography, photographing cityscapes, landscapes and those things right around us that often goes noticed and make them my own world in my work. My real interest is in abstract photography. It is exciting to turning ordinary and creating photographs that I refer to ‘In the Minds’ Eye. I have exhibited throughout PA, NJ and Ohio. I have won awards at several juried shows.”

Bob Richey on Bob Richey: “I draw rural and urban themed landscapes with soft pastels.  I usually work in a small format and complete my pieces in a single session. This allows me to explore many subjects in which I try to put a strong emphasis on composition.  I often seek out the more forgotten corners of the landscape both in the city and the countryside to feature in my pastels.” Bob shows and sells his art extensively throughout the region, and has been accepted to numerous shows in the area. He also is an active participant in several area art festivals.
