What's Happening at the Gallery...

Spring has Sprung!  The show of color all around brings smiles.  There is certainly Life and New Life at the Gallery.  We continue to be open for you on Saturdays and Sundays.  Noon to 5:00 PM.  Here is the work of two artists you don’t want to miss...

Mark Ed:  “Woman at the Beach," visualizes a conversation he had with “Betty” who couldn’t have been happier than being at the beach in Cape May.  That we can appreciate!

Statement from the Artist: "For me, the pandemic provided the luxury of time. Painting came easier; there were no interruptions; reconnecting with former, fellow artists came seamlessly. It signaled a creative explosion and provided therapy and an escape from negativity. The isolation cleared my vision and I could feel in myself, and in my paintings, greater empathy for what was going on in so many peoples lives." - Mark Ed

Sandra Wirfel – An all-in-one package.  Besides a mother and retired military, Sandra set her sights on being a writer, poet, artist, and now artist mentor to her grandbaby.  

See Sandra and Atlas’s pandemic art.  


Statement from the Artist: "The pandemic found me feeling my mortality.  My Mother was sick and not getting better, my new grandson Atlas was thriving.  I was feeling my age and my health had me worried.  I threw myself into my art.  

 Art changed everything.  My Mother and I began a daily painting marathon; my daughter Robin introduced her 6-month old Atlas to painting by smooshing paint onto a canvas; another two daughters started painting; my son created backdrops for celebrations.  My husband continued to support the paint obsession while ignoring paint on every surface.  Suddenly, the joy of myself and everyone painting filled my heart.  Despite lockdown and artistic opportunities being lost, the only thing that mattered was the here and now of taking life one day at a time, and that’s all any of us can do.  

The small picture is titled “First Tree”.  It is the background created by Atlas and I added the tree.  The larger piece is “Soul Warrior” because the pandemic saw me grow from being afraid of the virus on a daily basis to living every moment of my life with great purpose." -Sandra Wirfel


Plein Air

Five painters lost themselves in the Park last Sunday, as they merrily put what they saw on canvas.  Stay tuned for announcements of when and where the next sessions will be.  

 Young serious artists are invited, just so each is with an adult.  

Save the Date!

A  glorious setting for a memorable event!
