Bethlehem, PA, April 21, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Bethlehem House Gallery, a contemporary art gallery providing innovative art in a variety of contemporary styles, will host its 2016 Spring Show from Friday, April 22 through Saturday, July 9. The show will begin with an opening reception on Friday, April 22 from 6-9 p.m. taking place at the gallery on Main Street, and will conclude with a closing reception on Friday, July 9 from 6-9 pm. The opening event will include live music, refreshments, and a chance to meet the artists.
Bethlehem House Gallery will welcome Spring with a dramatic transformation into a new exhibit that will demonstrate the practical use of contemporary artwork in modern interior design. Works are displayed in a comfortable furnished environment, mimicking a home setting.
The Spring exhibit will feature work by the established Lehigh Valley artist Marlow Rodale, whose works in Neo-futurism seek to Interpret the “mechanics of the mind, how memories are formed and how recollections of past events create one’s personal world.” Rodale draws inspiration for his work from artists like MC Escher, and by borrowing from the ideals of Surrealism, comic books, and modern day graffiti.
The Gallery is committed to featuring and supporting local talent, and displays their work in chic interior settings. Artists and excerpts of their statements follow:
Gini Illick: “In a painting, fragments of the previous painting, showing where the artist has changed her mind...So many layers, always a figure and a love affair with paint.“
Thomas Kelly: “My paintings are of common scenes, everyday occurrences in which people struggle to establish and maintain relationships.”
Jennifer Schilling: “I paint because I am driven to do so.. Tracking down the driver, even though I know it resides in me has never been entirely successful. It is mostly a one way conversation, although occasionally I offer a suggestion.”
Domenick Naccarato: “Decay. Rust. Worn and weathered industrial surfaces. That is often what I find beauty in and use as my inspiration today.”
Ellie Albrecht: “My work focuses on parts of the Earth seen from an aerial perspective, because I feel I am connected to the universe and have found my inner style.”
