Down Eastfeaturing: Paul Grecian and Michael Schweigart
This show runs from April 10, 2014 until May 4, 2014
Reception: Saturday, Apr 12, 4-7pm
New Jersey artist Michael Schweigart and Pennsylvania fine art photographer Paul Grecian are joining together at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ to express a mutual appreciation for the coastal Maine landscape including Acadia National Park. Their two-person show, which they have titled “Down East”, will open on Thursday, April 10th 2014 and run thru May 4th, 2014.
Schweigart and Grecian will be offering original paintings and photography that reflect the quiet and beauty which they experience in the landscape and wilderness of this unique part of the country. A reception with the artists, free and open to all, will be held at the gallery from 4 pm – 7 pm on Saturday, April 12, 2014
For Schweigart, this show is about "Memories of trips up and down the coast, everything from wooded rocky shores, marshy coves, and small seaports." His most recent work conveys unique scenes of Maine's "Down East" coastal areas. Schweigart's acrylic works on paper are carefully layered to develop depth, visual texture, and richness of color.
"Maine has been the muse for some of our greatest artists, and it's no wonder," asserts Grecian, "The diversity of light and landscape is a never-ending source for creativity." Grecian continues, "I have experienced feelings of both awe and serenity while in Acadia National Park." "Working in my medium of photography from before sunrise until the star-filled sky of night, I find it all very exciting."
