Steve Coleman and Five Elements
Oct 19 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

For saxophonist Steve Coleman, music is not a separate discipline from any other activity created by people, but a form of energy, a holistic part of the entire vibratory spectrum, from micro to macro. This MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award-winner’s unconstrained and preconceived compositional techniques start with the great African American spontaneous composers, and his global exploration of how humans, animals, and plants communicate gives his refined tonal progressions and disciplined rhythmic structures a distinctive conversational flow. With Five Elements, Steve Coleman takes the expressive possibilities of improvisation to uncharted, intriguing new territory.

Golden Nugget’s Art on the Boardwalk
Oct 20 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Golden Nugget is a 50-year-old Lambertville institution that is open year round. Since 1967, the Golden Nugget has been a “gold mine” for finding antiques, collectibles, art and more.

Collectible art of all kinds has been an indispensable ingredient for decades at the Golden Nugget. What better than to introduce an exclusive Artist’s Outdoor Studio space at this iconic collectors enclave?

Every week, thousands of savvy antique-hunters and bargain-browsers visit the Golden Nugget to find an enormous variety of just about anything and everything old or “new-again”. We are the East Coast’s premier market for vintage and retro items such as furniture & home decor, paintings, clothing, jewelry, Victorian collectibles, sports memorabilia, model trains, books, dolls, arts & crafts, toys & games, lamps, pottery, comic books, vinyl albums, clocks, watches, glass, china, porcelain, garden items, coins, stamps, art deco, hardware and everything else imaginable that is antique or collectible.

Besides looking for the perfect gift for family or friends, one of the main reasons people shop here is to find decorative items for their homes. Lately, the crowd of buyers includes the faces of a younger and diverse group of people. Young adults are frequenting the Golden Nugget looking to blend store-bought items with a bit of their own nostalgia to create an eclectic mix of styles that reflect who they are now, as well as where they came from. It’s not unusual to find your next family heirloom here.

Aside from our unique merchandise mix, our market is enhanced by the friendly dealers who come weekly (some for over 30 years!) to sell a variety of wares.  Stroll around and take the time to browse through the incredible variety of merchandise and strike up a conversation with the dealers. Enjoy yourself!

Theatre Re: The Nature of Forgetting
Oct 26 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

A resounding success at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Theatre Re’s The Nature of Forgetting is an explosive and moving reflection on what is left when memory fades. Middle-aged Tom struggles in the early stages of dementia. Then, magically, a lifetime of recollection is unlocked by small gestures, objects, and sounds, which his delicate mind eagerly grasps. Performed by a small cast almost entirely without dialogue, the journey unfolds through powerful, exquisitely wrought movement, capturing the fragility of life and the endurance of the human spirit. “Breathtaking and bold…a must see” (Broadway World).

Negin Farsad
Nov 1 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Negin Farsad occupies a place at the vanguard of social justice comedy, taking on Islamophobia and bigotry with outrageous, insightful humor. In crafting her hilarious message, she draws on a bottomless repository of anecdotes from the frontlines of prejudice—and offers a prescription for how to change the discourse. The Austin Chronicle calls Negin Farsad a “master humorist who is equal parts academic and amusing”; you’ll call her a vital panacea for the Trump era. She delivers real-world activist wit with a touch of public policy reproach for a rollicking look at today’s issues.

5th Annual Points of View Art Show and Sale
Nov 2 @ 7:00 pm – Nov 11 @ 5:00 pm

5th ANNUAL POINTS OF VIEW ART SHOW AND SALE

November 2-4 & 9-11, 2018

“5TH Annual Points of View”, an Art Show and Sale featuring five local artists, will once again be presented for two weekends at the Laceworks at 287 S. Main Street, Lambertville, Friday, November 2nd through Sunday, November 4th, and Friday, November 9th through Sunday, November 11th.The show will begin with an Opening Reception on Friday, November 2 from 7 – 9 pm. The show continues both weekends, Saturday 12-7 and Sunday 12-5. For more information, contact [email protected] or [email protected]

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 Laceworks building. Parking is free and abundant. Entrances are on the street side or around the back on the lower level. Look for the banners and flags.

Jeanne Chesterton and Ilene Rubin have been creating Art Shows in the Bucks County area for four years, and now five 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, Rose Marie Strippoli, and, Gail Bracegirdle, 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.

All art is for sale. Jeanne Chesterton paints realistic still life subjects. She chooses worn, rusty objects but sets up a composition with finesse and imagination. Concentrating mostly on landscapes, Ilene Rubin’s paintings explode with color, and will be showcasing Bridges and Water, along with a few small still life pieces. Pat Powell has combined a creative mixture of form, color and mixed media. Rose Marie Strippoli uses shape and color to impart a nonrepresentational vision that is unique and full of movement. Gail Bracegirdle manipulates watercolor paint as a conductor extracts the best from their musicians; with skill, sensitivity and accomplishment.

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 and South Jersey. 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. She is co-founder of the Broads With Brushes artist group. 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. Those places might disappear through development all too soon and I feel compelled to capture them before they’re gone. 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 movements and 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. I think my paintings are usually about color, geometry and often a touch of whimsy.  Who wouldn’t be inspired by living in Bucks County with our wonderful history, changing scenery and variety of landscapes from rolling hills, to river scenes, to deep quarries? I’m not sure how it happened, but it was a serendipity moment when I decided to incorporate paint chips in my art work.  Two pieces have been accepted at Phillips Mill and both have found good homes.”

Rose Marie Strippoli: “I feel that my art has been a metamorphosis, a reflection of my life’s experiences.  My artistic experiences have come full circle in a way, the archetypical Mandala; ever present, insistent in its pattern. As for choices, I love it all.  I immerse myself in a variety of media, vehicles for my artistic intent, proclaiming the message of the moment.  What will it be today?”

Gail Bracegirdle: “I chose the fascinating world of watercolor because I was drawn to the clean, environmentally sensitive nature of this medium”, she says. “Every painting is a journey and challenge. I love experimenting with various textures and styles of watercolor papers and pigments – always searching for the perfect combination of surface and paint to create a specific effect.  If I can think of yet another way to make art with watercolors, I’ll try it.  This has lead me into using my watercolors to create monotypes, and recently, even adding collage for textural elements. In my representational paintings, I paint objects and places I find intriguing.  However, whether I’m working in a representational way or with abstracted forms, my goal is to share the excitement of my experiences with the observer.” Since 1993 Gail has been teaching watercolor and finds it to be a wonderfully enjoyable and rewarding experience. During that time, she has been a faculty member of Arts Council of Princeton, Bucks County Community College, ARTWORKS Trenton, the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown PA, and at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ. A signature member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society, her paintings are actively exhibited in juried, group and solo shows throughout the region, have won awards, and are held in private collections in the United States, Europe and Australia.

The show continues both weekends, Saturday 12-7 and Sunday 12-5. For more information, contact [email protected] or [email protected]

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 Laceworks building. Parking is free and abundant. Entrances are on the street side or around the back on the lower level. Look for the banners and flags.

Jeanne Chesterton and Ilene Rubin have been creating Art Shows in the Bucks County area for four years, and now five 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, Rose Marie Strippoli, and, Gail Bracegirdle, 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.

All art is for sale. Jeanne Chesterton paints realistic still life subjects. She chooses worn, rusty objects but sets up a composition with finesse and imagination. Concentrating mostly on landscapes, Ilene Rubin’s paintings explode with color, and will be showcasing Bridges and Water, along with a few small still life pieces. Pat Powell has combined a creative mixture of form, color and mixed media. Rose Marie Strippoli uses shape and color to impart a nonrepresentational vision that is unique and full of movement. Gail Bracegirdle manipulates watercolor paint as a conductor extracts the best from their musicians; with skill, sensitivity and accomplishment.

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 and South Jersey. 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. She is co-founder of the Broads With Brushes artist group. 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. Those places might disappear through development all too soon and I feel compelled to capture them before they’re gone. 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 movements and 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. I think my paintings are usually about color, geometry and often a touch of whimsy.  Who wouldn’t be inspired by living in Bucks County with our wonderful history, changing scenery and variety of landscapes from rolling hills, to river scenes, to deep quarries? I’m not sure how it happened, but it was a serendipity moment when I decided to incorporate paint chips in my art work.  Two pieces have been accepted at Phillips Mill and both have found good homes.”

Rose Marie Strippoli: “I feel that my art has been a metamorphosis, a reflection of my life’s experiences.  My artistic experiences have come full circle in a way, the archetypical Mandala; ever present, insistent in its pattern. As for choices, I love it all.  I immerse myself in a variety of media, vehicles for my artistic intent, proclaiming the message of the moment.  What will it be today?”

Gail Bracegirdle: “I chose the fascinating world of watercolor because I was drawn to the clean, environmentally sensitive nature of this medium”, she says. “Every painting is a journey and challenge. I love experimenting with various textures and styles of watercolor papers and pigments – always searching for the perfect combination of surface and paint to create a specific effect.  If I can think of yet another way to make art with watercolors, I’ll try it.  This has lead me into using my watercolors to create monotypes, and recently, even adding collage for textural elements. In my representational paintings, I paint objects and places I find intriguing.  However, whether I’m working in a representational way or with abstracted forms, my goal is to share the excitement of my experiences with the observer.” Since 1993 Gail has been teaching watercolor and finds it to be a wonderfully enjoyable and rewarding experience. During that time, she has been a faculty member of Arts Council of Princeton, Bucks County Community College, ARTWORKS Trenton, the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown PA, and at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ. A signature member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society, her paintings are actively exhibited in juried, group and solo shows throughout the region, have won awards, and are held in private collections in the United States, Europe and Australia.

Ronald K. Brown: EVIDENCE
Nov 7 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

“Faith embodied” is a fitting description of Ronald K. Brown’s work, a “sophisticated amalgam of Afrocentric movement and modern dance to make spirituality not merely a passive state but something vibrant and transformative” (Los Angeles Times). These qualities are made manifest in a program that delves deep—1995’s March, set to speeches by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—and surfaces with new works: Four Corners(2014), in which solace comes to those beset by grief, and New Conversations(2017), with music by Afro-Cuban jazz artist Arturo O’Farrill, a thrill for dance and music lovers alike.

Golden Nugget’s Art on the Boardwalk
Nov 10 @ 7:00 am – 4:00 pm

The Golden Nugget is a 50-year-old Lambertville institution that is open year round. Since 1967, the Golden Nugget has been a “gold mine” for finding antiques, collectibles, art and more.

Collectible art of all kinds has been an indispensable ingredient for decades at the Golden Nugget. What better than to introduce an exclusive Artist’s Outdoor Studio space at this iconic collectors enclave?

Every week, thousands of savvy antique-hunters and bargain-browsers visit the Golden Nugget to find an enormous variety of just about anything and everything old or “new-again”. We are the East Coast’s premier market for vintage and retro items such as furniture & home decor, paintings, clothing, jewelry, Victorian collectibles, sports memorabilia, model trains, books, dolls, arts & crafts, toys & games, lamps, pottery, comic books, vinyl albums, clocks, watches, glass, china, porcelain, garden items, coins, stamps, art deco, hardware and everything else imaginable that is antique or collectible.

Besides looking for the perfect gift for family or friends, one of the main reasons people shop here is to find decorative items for their homes. Lately, the crowd of buyers includes the faces of a younger and diverse group of people. Young adults are frequenting the Golden Nugget looking to blend store-bought items with a bit of their own nostalgia to create an eclectic mix of styles that reflect who they are now, as well as where they came from. It’s not unusual to find your next family heirloom here.

Aside from our unique merchandise mix, our market is enhanced by the friendly dealers who come weekly (some for over 30 years!) to sell a variety of wares.  Stroll around and take the time to browse through the incredible variety of merchandise and strike up a conversation with the dealers.

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. I think my paintings are usually about color, geometry and often a touch of whimsy.  Who wouldn’t be inspired by living in Bucks County with our wonderful history, changing scenery and variety of landscapes from rolling hills, to river scenes, to deep quarries? I’m not sure how it happened, but it was a serendipity moment when I decided to incorporate paint chips in my art work.  Two pieces have been accepted at Phillips Mill and both have found good homes.”

Rose Marie Strippoli: “I feel that my art has been a metamorphosis, a reflection of my life’s experiences.  My artistic experiences have come full circle in a way, the archetypical Mandala; ever present, insistent in its pattern. As for choices, I love it all.  I immerse myself in a variety of media, vehicles for my artistic intent, proclaiming the message of the moment.  What will it be today?”

Gail Bracegirdle: “I chose the fascinating world of watercolor because I was drawn to the clean, environmentally sensitive nature of this medium”, she says. “Every painting is a journey and challenge. I love experimenting with various textures and styles of watercolor papers and pigments – always searching for the perfect combination of surface and paint to create a specific effect.  If I can think of yet another way to make art with watercolors, I’ll try it.  This has lead me into using my watercolors to create monotypes, and recently, even adding collage for textural elements. In my representational paintings, I paint objects and places I find intriguing.  However, whether I’m working in a representational way or with abstracted forms, my goal is to share the excitement of my experiences with the observer.” Since 1993 Gail has been teaching watercolor and finds it to be a wonderfully enjoyable and rewarding experience. During that time, she has been a faculty member of Arts Council of Princeton, Bucks County Community College, ARTWORKS Trenton, the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown PA, and at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton NJ. A signature member of the Philadelphia Water Color Society, her paintings are actively exhibited in juried, group and solo shows throughout the region, have won awards, and are held in private collections in the United States, Europe and Australia.

Dar Williams
Nov 16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Recognized as much for her staunch progressive ideals as she is for her unfettered acoustic flair, Dar Williams holds an audience in thrall with the sheer grace and honesty of her folk-pop songwriting. Her songs, beautifully crafted like finely drawn short stories, shift from the tenderly humorous to the devastatingly poignant—The New Yorker rightly identifies her as “one of America’s very best singer-songwriters.” At the heart of Williams’ work, spanning ten albums and four books, is her belief in friendship, human connection, and the transformative power of creating music together.

Collectible art of all kinds has been an indispensable ingredient for decades at the Golden Nugget. What better than to introduce an exclusive Artist’s Outdoor Studio space at this iconic collectors enclave?

Every week, thousands of savvy antique-hunters and bargain-browsers visit the Golden Nugget to find an enormous variety of just about anything and everything old or “new-again”. We are the East Coast’s premier market for vintage and retro items such as furniture & home decor, paintings, clothing, jewelry, Victorian collectibles, sports memorabilia, model trains, books, dolls, arts & crafts, toys & games, lamps, pottery, comic books, vinyl albums, clocks, watches, glass, china, porcelain, garden items, coins, stamps, art deco, hardware and everything else imaginable that is antique or collectible.
