Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ is pleased to present “Jersey Shore,” an exhibition featuring the oil paintings of Bill Jersey and Maxine Shore. A reception with the artists will be held at the gallery from 5 to 8 pm on Saturday, June 10, 2017. The show will go from June 8, 2017 to July 2, 2017.
Put the work of Bill Jersey and Maxine Shore in the same room and what do you get? Blazing color – superb compositions – and a delightful irrepressible experience of – you guessed it – “Jersey Shore” – it’s their world as they see it.
For over 60 years, Bill Jersey has gained honors as a pre-eminent maker of television documentaries. His major awards include two Peabodys, two national Emmys, two academy award nominations and a gold medal for Lifetime achievement in the Arts from the national Arts club in New York city. Since moving to Lambertville his major focus has been on his oil paintings. Multiple awards have come to him from Phillips Mill, Artsbridge, New Hope Arts and other curated venues
Oil painter Maxine Shore, whose work can be found in many personal and institutional collections, has exhibited her work throughout the United States. She strives to create work that is suffused with color and light in an effort to capture the memory of a special place in a particular time. Her goal is to encourage viewers to reevaluate how they perceive nature. This is summed up in the quote from Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in seeing with new eyes.”
The gallery is located at 18 Bridge Street, in the heart of town, and is open Thursday through Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm.
