All are welcome to join the artists at the opening reception Saturday, July 6, from 5 to 8:30 pm. Artists' Gallery is located in the heart of Lambertville at 18 Bridge Street, with regular hours: 11am - 6pm Thursday through Sunday.
"I love the focus of this show, because it explores subjects that consistently inspire me, moments of gratitude in everyday splendors, and expressing them through my paintings" says Bork.
Over her more than 25 year career as a professional fine artist, Bork's watercolor paintings, which display a sensitivity and love of subject in detail and composition, have amassed a list of honors in the genre of animal art. Achieving signature status with the prestigious Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation, her work has been displayed in notable national and international exhibitions. In addition, Bork's paintings have been featured in a variety of publications and acquired by collectors from around the world.
"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 relish mixing pure colors, keeping my palette simple to create authenticity of what is observed, not assumed".
Laura Rutherford Renner is an artist whose paintings on wood depict contemporary life in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Her work has been presented in various group juried exhibitions and shows, recently at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ and the iconic Philadelphia Sketch Club. In addition to her painting career, Laura is a practicing Occupational Therapist and the published author of several biographical articles for OT journals.
