You Can Learn to Do Plein Air & Be A Part of a Bucks County Tradition!
 
THE BUCKS COUNTY PLEIN AIR TRADITION
Bucks County has a long tradition of plein air painting that began with the likes of William L. Lathrop who settled in New Hope in 1898 and started a summer art school. The area's rolling hills were spectacular, and the river, its tributaries, and the Delaware Canal were picturesque. The natural beauty attracted the artist Edward Redfield (1869-1965), who settled north of the town. Redfield painted nature in bold and vibrant colors, and was “the pioneer of the realistic painting of winter in America.” His thick layering distinguished him from his contemporaries, and he amassed more honors and awards than any other artist in the New Hope Colony. His style is distinguished by its color, light, and usual time of day when painting. The third major artist to settle in the area was Daniel Garber (1880-1958), who came to New Hope in 1907... known for his "luminous, poetic renditions of the Delaware River."

 The Wild Light Project:

The Wild Light Project was founded by Philadelphia based photographer Mercedes Spinetti in 2018. Beginning as a short study of landscape photographs, Wild Light Project ultimately grew into the collection of nature, portrait and exploration work that it is today. Mercedes’ inclination toward natural elements is translated through her work with the primary use of natural light and a subdued approach to her subject. Compiled, the Wild Light Project photographs build an authentic narrative.

Seven Strikes:

 Bucks County native Seven Strikes always dreamed of making a splash in the art world and those dreams materialized when he started as a tattoo artist at the young age of 20. The owner of Seven Strikes Studio is living the American dream. Seven came to the States at the age of nine. His journey didn't stop there. A lover of arts, theater, dance, and performance, helped shape this entrepreneur into the man he is today. Shortly after opening a tattoo studio in the heart of Bucks County, Seven also created a workplace and a studio for his blossoming fine art career. Drawn early to urban art, graffiti, and graphic design, Seven honed his skills learned on the streets painting murals into the beautiful gesso canvas works he creates for gallery exhibitions today.

Lerner's work has been featured in more than 30 group exhibitions and was the subject of 10 solo shows, including a major retrospective in the Roberson Museum in Binghamton, N.Y.

Prior to teaching at Alvernia University in Reading, Pennsylvania and Hobart & William Smith Colleges, Lerner held positions at The Art School in Vestal, N.Y., Oregon State University, Chautauqua Institution School of Art and Lee College as well as painting workshops in Norman, Oklahoma, and the Fundacion Valparaiso in Mojacar, Spain. He has also completed residencies at the Mill Atelier Gallery, Buffalo River National Park and the Vermont Studio Center.
Having a rigorous academic education in both Russia and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, he provides students with the tools they need to develop their own artistic style. Ilya instructs painting workshops for Artists of Yardley and is the owner of Lerner Studio Art School, a private art school.
Lerner received a B.S. in Management Information Systems from Moscow Technical University of Communications, and his MFA in Studio Art from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Pinball Photography of Charles Acosta will be on Exhibit Throughout August

The photographic work of Charles Acosta, owner of Pinball Photos, LLC, will be on display at the Country Side Gallery in Newtown, PA from Aug. 2-31, 2019. A meet-and-greet event with the artist will be held on Friday, Aug. 23, beginning at 5 p.m.

The gallery is located at 2 South State Street in Newtown. The unique exhibition of macro art featuring pinball machines is being sponsored by Jersey Jack Pinball that has one of the most photogenic machines in the business and artwork of their games will be in the exhibit. The show is also sponsored by PinSound that has been providing their new Multiballs as Acosta’s balls of choice when taking photos of the machines.

A highly-skilled photographic artist and pinball enthusiast, Acosta’s artwork captures the nostalgia, spirit and excitement of the pinball era. Pinball machines have played a major role in the history of modern gaming and even had a scandalous past. The games were so popular that they were once used as gambling devices. They were even banned in some cities as a badinfluence on the day’s youth.

Born in the Dominican Republic, the artist moved to the U.S. and was captivated by the interplay of flashing lights and shiny balls as they careened around the machines during game play. He utilized his photographic talents to highlight the machines in an entirely new way with pinball artwork that features macro images and emphasizes the elements of the game. His artwork encompasses photos from machines ranging from the 1940s to the present.

The upcoming exhibition by Acosta will be a feast to please the eyes of any pinball enthusiast and art lovers. The images provide a new and unique perspective on the classic games and his artwork is part of private collections gracing homes and offices around the world. The exhibition is an exceptional opportunity for pinball fans to relive their early experience with pinball and feed the resurgence of interest by younger generations.

Davie Moore was born in the seaside town of Weymouth, Dorset, England. As a small boy he would sit on Quay, dreaming of sailing to America and beyond. He began sketching at a very young age, winning many local competitions for his drawings and paintings. Leaving school at age 15, he continued to paint while working odd jobs. In 1972, Davie joined the British Merchant Navy and went to sea. Recognizing his mechanical and creative talents, Cunard Cruise Lines sent him to college. After graduation, Davie served aboard many of Canard's ships as the Engineering Officer including the line' flagship vessel the QE2. After circumnavigating the globe seven or more times, he returned to England. In 1989, Davie bought Tean, a 25-foot wreck of a sailboat. Refitting the boat by hand, he added many of his own inventions, as well as ind and solar power.Finally he began living his dream that now included sailing to and linking all of the towns in the world named for his hometown Weymouth. Stopping temporarily in Weymouth, Massachusetts, he began drawing and painting again creating local scenes. Commissions for his original art and personalized work soon followed. In 1994, he sailed back to England, and then, without an engine set sail for Weymouth, New Zealand. This was the last voyage of the Tean. A tale filled with adventure too incredible to recount in this limited space. Sadly the story of the Tean ends when, after five months alone in the vast expanse of the South Pacific, blown off course, drifting, surviving on flying fish, Davie hit a reef in the night and Tean sink and was lost. Penniless, Davie returned to New England where he began sketching and painting once again. Once more, his art provided the oppertunity to fund and build a new boat - this time of steel. Launched at Plymouth, Massachusetts, the 28' SV Nantascot sailed south, then to Bermuda and Europe. After living aboard for several years the Nantascot was sold. Davie returned to the United States and recently he and his wife moved to Newtown. Davie has begun again drawing local scenes, as well as custom portraits of homes, automobiles, and pets. Davie's work can be seen on display at our South State Street gallery as well as a collection of his prints & greeting cards.

April Ann Bohmler, although born in California in 1960, considers herself a native of Bucks County, growing up in Newtown Pennsylvania from the age of two. After moving to nearby Glenside, Montgomery County in her twenties and raising her two children she moved to Doylestown, PA, where she now resides with her partner Paul. April's paintings have shown in Philips’ Mill and Central Bucks Juried Exhibitions. Recently she participated in and received an award at the Absecon Art Alliance 2018 Plein Aire Art in the Park Paint-out in Absecon NJ. As a child and throughout her young adult life there was an itch to travel and visually experience the world. In her thirties, encouraged by a life change, she explored different parts of the world and has spent a good amount of time in Northern Spain and the Netherlands. Her artwork reflects the culture, color, surroundings and experiences from her travels. She enjoys exploring how to represent those elements in her artwork. It is an exploration of the world and bringing the inner visual image out on canvas. Early on she studied drawing at Temple University as a young woman and “picked up the brush” in earnest in her mid-thirties. She has study pastel with award winning artist Mary Padgett, and journaling with Mary’s husband and graphic design professor William Padgett, Syracuse University. In past years April has practiced botanical illustration with Philadelphia artist Eileen Rosen. She’s spends much of her time Plein Aire painting in Northern Spain where she has a second home.
