Moments in Lifefeaturing: Laura Rutherford Renner and Carol Sanzalone
This show runs from July 9, 2020 until August 2, 2020
Special people and places that inspire the paintings of Laura Rutherford Renner and Carol McClure Sanzalone, will be showcased as the featured artists at Artists' Gallery for the month of July. For the reopening celebration this month, we encourage you to join us, wearing masks and exercising social distancing, as you enjoy the glorious paintings of our sixteen member artists.
Laura Rutherford Renner is an artist whose paintings on wood depict contemporary life in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. "Capturing a snapshot of living forms in two dimensions on a slab of smoothly prepared wood is a contemplative exercise and a source of calm", says Renner. "I enjoy mixing pure colors, keeping my palette simple to create authenticity of what is observed, not assumed."
Carol McClure Sanzalone is fascinated by the graphic qualities of shadow and light. "Working in watercolor and acrylic, I am able to creatively express, with transparent washes of color, the images that inspire my work - as uniquely wonderful as a pile of leaves in the morning light, or the shapes and textures that enliven the countryside."
This reopening celebration of the Artists' Gallery is not to be missed!
Please note that there is no opening reception for this exhibit, due to social distancing recommendations. The gallery will be open our regular hours and we hope that you can visit us!
In the meantime, please check out these two short videos to hear from the artists. (These links will open a new window to the YouTube videos.)

"Meeting and talking to the artist
adds a special element to collecting contemporary art
that makes the work an irreplaceable treasure
rather than just another possession". – Sylvia White
