Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg.

"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

BUCKS COUNTY'S FIRST ART HOTEL EXHIBITION AND ART SALE
The Centre Bridge Inn, 2998 River Road, New Hope, PA 18938 (map)

It is with great excitement and anticipation that beginning on October 5, 2018, we are presenting Bucks County's first Art Hotel venture to our communities Show More...of art enthusiasts far and near. With Bucks County's already rich artistic history, its large selection of galleries, art events and festivals, the culinary offerings, the beauty of its landscape at all seasons, and its deeply rooted tradition of historic Inns, the blending of art and hospitality comes as a natural next step.
In this first Art Hotel exhibition and art sale, we are thrilled to have brought together one of Bucks County's most treasure Inns, one of the area's most established Fine Art galleries and the works by an African American expressionist painter from Philadelphia.
Having a keen sense of appreciation for this area's cultural diversity, curator Stephanie Lisle was inspired to combine the colorful and lively world of art exhibitions with the atmosphere of comfort and tranquility at the Centre Bridge Inn in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful, historic, and well established Center Bridge Inn is not only a perfect get away retreat in bucolic Bucks County, it is set in the idyllic landscape of the Delaware River, perfect backdrop for weddings, romantic dinners and overnight stays during all seasons. Their selection of eight sophisticated and tastefully decorated guest rooms already feature themed artwork by Bucks County contemporary and traditional artists.
Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio has been a leading authority on American Art, and an important member of the Bucks County art community for almost 40 years. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American paintings, with a focus on painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Gratz Gallery offers a wide selection of Fine Art from Impressionism to Modern Art. In addition to art investment Gratz Gallery offers custom framing and fine art conservation services. Included in the gallery's extensive selection of art, is a collection of works by African American expressionist painter Bernard Harmon.
Bernard Harmon (1935 - 1989) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1935. Harmon was primarily a portrait painter and a well loved teacher in the Philadelphia area. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School and Temple's Tyler School of Art. Beloved by many, Harmon taught in the Philadelphia School District, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the University of the Arts, and at Drexel University. Harmon's portraits were commissioned by Philadelphia Jazz organist Jimmy Smith and Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Bernard Harmon was considered a Renaissance man by friends and colleagues for his interests not only in art but music and theater as well. He was familiar and friends with many contemporary African American artists such as Doc Thrash, Selma Burke, Paul Keene Jr., Allen Freelon and Charles Searles. His work has a loose expressionist style that can be related to the work of Alice Kneel.
When visiting the Delaware River community, stop in for dinner and a drink, listen to live music on the weekends, stay for the night, and get enchanted by the colorful art of Bernard Harmon. But don't wait too long; exhibitions will change just as the seasons do.
The Center Bridge Inn is located at 2998 River Rd, New Hope, PA 18938. Their hours of operations are by appointment for events, and restaurant hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 - 9 pm and Sunday 5 - 8pm. For more information please visit their website at www.centrebridgeinn.com

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

ARTS ON CAMPUS BRINGS LOU SCHELLENBERG EXHIBIT TO DELAWARE VALLEY UNIVERSITY

Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

It is with great excitement and anticipation that beginning on October 5, 2018, we are presenting Bucks County's first Art Hotel venture to our communities Show More...of art enthusiasts far and near. With Bucks County's already rich artistic history, its large selection of galleries, art events and festivals, the culinary offerings, the beauty of its landscape at all seasons, and its deeply rooted tradition of historic Inns, the blending of art and hospitality comes as a natural next step.
In this first Art Hotel exhibition and art sale, we are thrilled to have brought together one of Bucks County's most treasure Inns, one of the area's most established Fine Art galleries and the works by an African American expressionist painter from Philadelphia.
Having a keen sense of appreciation for this area's cultural diversity, curator Stephanie Lisle was inspired to combine the colorful and lively world of art exhibitions with the atmosphere of comfort and tranquility at the Centre Bridge Inn in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful, historic, and well established Center Bridge Inn is not only a perfect get away retreat in bucolic Bucks County, it is set in the idyllic landscape of the Delaware River, perfect backdrop for weddings, romantic dinners and overnight stays during all seasons. Their selection of eight sophisticated and tastefully decorated guest rooms already feature themed artwork by Bucks County contemporary and traditional artists.
Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio has been a leading authority on American Art, and an important member of the Bucks County art community for almost 40 years. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American paintings, with a focus on painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Gratz Gallery offers a wide selection of Fine Art from Impressionism to Modern Art. In addition to art investment Gratz Gallery offers custom framing and fine art conservation services. Included in the gallery's extensive selection of art, is a collection of works by African American expressionist painter Bernard Harmon.
Bernard Harmon (1935 - 1989) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1935. Harmon was primarily a portrait painter and a well loved teacher in the Philadelphia area. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School and Temple's Tyler School of Art. Beloved by many, Harmon taught in the Philadelphia School District, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the University of the Arts, and at Drexel University. Harmon's portraits were commissioned by Philadelphia Jazz organist Jimmy Smith and Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Bernard Harmon was considered a Renaissance man by friends and colleagues for his interests not only in art but music and theater as well. He was familiar and friends with many contemporary African American artists such as Doc Thrash, Selma Burke, Paul Keene Jr., Allen Freelon and Charles Searles. His work has a loose expressionist style that can be related to the work of Alice Kneel.
When visiting the Delaware River community, stop in for dinner and a drink, listen to live music on the weekends, stay for the night, and get enchanted by the colorful art of Bernard Harmon. But don't wait too long; exhibitions will change just as the seasons do.
The Center Bridge Inn is located at 2998 River Rd, New Hope, PA 18938. Their hours of operations are by appointment for events, and restaurant hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 - 9 pm and Sunday 5 - 8pm. For more information please visit their website at www.centrebridgeinn.com

Leslie Pontz's work deals with topics such as community, conflict, and growth by applying the vocabulary of textiles to materials not commonly associated Show More...with the medium. Rusted tools find a home with soft woven pieces while metal is crocheted like yarn. These surprising juxtapositions of materials makes categorizing Pontz's work difficult; it is sculpture, it is fabric, it is installation.
Her work also, in many cases, invites participation from its viewers. Whether following a meditative journey proscribed by Pontz in and around her work, or by literally rearranging portions of her sculptural pieces, viewers are both invited to be shaped by Pontz's work and shape it themselves. The story of Pontz's own life, that of her community, and visitors to the Museum will be woven together in the exhibition by participation, conversation, and collaboration.. ...Show Less

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us.

Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

"We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

Newly conserved and exhibited for the first time in a century, In Exaltation of Flowers gives us an intimate look into a close-knit artistic circle on Show More...the eve of World War I. Edward Steichen painted this seven-panel mural for financier Eugene Meyer and his wife, Agnes Ernst Meyer, who planned to install it in their Manhattan townhouse. Like the flowers that Steichen cultivated in the garden at his French country home, this project was a "hybrid" work: it combined portraiture with elements from Symbolist painting, Pictorialist photography, and fashion illustration. This talk will tell the mural's story within the context of Steichen's work and the creative pursuits he shared with his patrons and friends, unfolding some of the details that made it such a personal project for the artist.

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

ARTS ON CAMPUS BRINGS LOU SCHELLENBERG EXHIBIT TO DELAWARE VALLEY UNIVERSITY

Date: 11/8/18-1/31/19 Time: 9am-7pm    WEBSITE     Sponsored by: Delware Valley University
Delaware Valley University will host a special exhibit, celebrating the work of painter Lou Schellenberg. The show entitled, "Contemporary Landscape Paintings: Show More...Rural Pennsylvania," will open Nov. 8 and run through Jan. 31 in the second-floor atrium of the University's Life Sciences Building.
"The University's Arts on Campus initiative is working to enhance the experience for both students and visitors to Delaware Valley University's campus by providing a variety of art exhibits," said DelVal Director of Continuing and Professional Studies Admission Linda Lefevre. "We are pleased to host Lou Schellenberg's show and hope that the campus and community will take advantage of the opportunity to see her work on our campus."
Schellenberg, who lives near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, earned her MFA at the University at Albany. After receiving her MFA, Schellenberg accepted a full-time teaching position in Pennsylvania where she continues to live and paint. She is a founding board member of the Mount Gretna School of Art, an intensive summer painting program.
Schellenberg's art has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows in galleries, art centers, and museums throughout the U.S. and Canada. She has won many awards including a fellowship from the Massachusetts Artists Foundation, and first place in Pennsylvania's Art of the State exhibit.
Over the many years of looking at, teaching, and creating art, Schellenberg has remained committed to observation as a starting point in drawing and painting. Her work is best described as landscape paintings that include architectural elements. Her paintings reflect a love of rural places, changing seasons, and the human relationship with nature.

The exhibit will be open to the public at no cost Nov. 8 through Jan. 31. Guests do not need to register in advance. The work will be on display on the second floor of the Life Sciences Building.. ...Show Less

It is with great excitement and anticipation that beginning on October 5, 2018, we are presenting Bucks County's first Art Hotel venture to our communities Show More...of art enthusiasts far and near. With Bucks County's already rich artistic history, its large selection of galleries, art events and festivals, the culinary offerings, the beauty of its landscape at all seasons, and its deeply rooted tradition of historic Inns, the blending of art and hospitality comes as a natural next step.
In this first Art Hotel exhibition and art sale, we are thrilled to have brought together one of Bucks County's most treasure Inns, one of the area's most established Fine Art galleries and the works by an African American expressionist painter from Philadelphia.
Having a keen sense of appreciation for this area's cultural diversity, curator Stephanie Lisle was inspired to combine the colorful and lively world of art exhibitions with the atmosphere of comfort and tranquility at the Centre Bridge Inn in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful, historic, and well established Center Bridge Inn is not only a perfect get away retreat in bucolic Bucks County, it is set in the idyllic landscape of the Delaware River, perfect backdrop for weddings, romantic dinners and overnight stays during all seasons. Their selection of eight sophisticated and tastefully decorated guest rooms already feature themed artwork by Bucks County contemporary and traditional artists.
Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio has been a leading authority on American Art, and an important member of the Bucks County art community for almost 40 years. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American paintings, with a focus on painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Gratz Gallery offers a wide selection of Fine Art from Impressionism to Modern Art. In addition to art investment Gratz Gallery offers custom framing and fine art conservation services. Included in the gallery's extensive selection of art, is a collection of works by African American expressionist painter Bernard Harmon.
Bernard Harmon (1935 - 1989) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1935. Harmon was primarily a portrait painter and a well loved teacher in the Philadelphia area. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School and Temple's Tyler School of Art. Beloved by many, Harmon taught in the Philadelphia School District, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the University of the Arts, and at Drexel University. Harmon's portraits were commissioned by Philadelphia Jazz organist Jimmy Smith and Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Bernard Harmon was considered a Renaissance man by friends and colleagues for his interests not only in art but music and theater as well. He was familiar and friends with many contemporary African American artists such as Doc Thrash, Selma Burke, Paul Keene Jr., Allen Freelon and Charles Searles. His work has a loose expressionist style that can be related to the work of Alice Kneel.
When visiting the Delaware River community, stop in for dinner and a drink, listen to live music on the weekends, stay for the night, and get enchanted by the colorful art of Bernard Harmon. But don't wait too long; exhibitions will change just as the seasons do.
The Center Bridge Inn is located at 2998 River Rd, New Hope, PA 18938. Their hours of operations are by appointment for events, and restaurant hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 - 9 pm and Sunday 5 - 8pm. For more information please visit their website at www.centrebridgeinn.com

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

It is with great excitement and anticipation that beginning on October 5, 2018, we are presenting Bucks County's first Art Hotel venture to our communities Show More...of art enthusiasts far and near. With Bucks County's already rich artistic history, its large selection of galleries, art events and festivals, the culinary offerings, the beauty of its landscape at all seasons, and its deeply rooted tradition of historic Inns, the blending of art and hospitality comes as a natural next step.
In this first Art Hotel exhibition and art sale, we are thrilled to have brought together one of Bucks County's most treasure Inns, one of the area's most established Fine Art galleries and the works by an African American expressionist painter from Philadelphia.
Having a keen sense of appreciation for this area's cultural diversity, curator Stephanie Lisle was inspired to combine the colorful and lively world of art exhibitions with the atmosphere of comfort and tranquility at the Centre Bridge Inn in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful, historic, and well established Center Bridge Inn is not only a perfect get away retreat in bucolic Bucks County, it is set in the idyllic landscape of the Delaware River, perfect backdrop for weddings, romantic dinners and overnight stays during all seasons. Their selection of eight sophisticated and tastefully decorated guest rooms already feature themed artwork by Bucks County contemporary and traditional artists.
Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio has been a leading authority on American Art, and an important member of the Bucks County art community for almost 40 years. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American paintings, with a focus on painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Gratz Gallery offers a wide selection of Fine Art from Impressionism to Modern Art. In addition to art investment Gratz Gallery offers custom framing and fine art conservation services. Included in the gallery's extensive selection of art, is a collection of works by African American expressionist painter Bernard Harmon.
Bernard Harmon (1935 - 1989) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1935. Harmon was primarily a portrait painter and a well loved teacher in the Philadelphia area. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School and Temple's Tyler School of Art. Beloved by many, Harmon taught in the Philadelphia School District, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the University of the Arts, and at Drexel University. Harmon's portraits were commissioned by Philadelphia Jazz organist Jimmy Smith and Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Bernard Harmon was considered a Renaissance man by friends and colleagues for his interests not only in art but music and theater as well. He was familiar and friends with many contemporary African American artists such as Doc Thrash, Selma Burke, Paul Keene Jr., Allen Freelon and Charles Searles. His work has a loose expressionist style that can be related to the work of Alice Kneel.
When visiting the Delaware River community, stop in for dinner and a drink, listen to live music on the weekends, stay for the night, and get enchanted by the colorful art of Bernard Harmon. But don't wait too long; exhibitions will change just as the seasons do.
The Center Bridge Inn is located at 2998 River Rd, New Hope, PA 18938. Their hours of operations are by appointment for events, and restaurant hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 - 9 pm and Sunday 5 - 8pm. For more information please visit their website at www.centrebridgeinn.com

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.

Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

It is with great excitement and anticipation that beginning on October 5, 2018, we are presenting Bucks County's first Art Hotel venture to our communities Show More...of art enthusiasts far and near. With Bucks County's already rich artistic history, its large selection of galleries, art events and festivals, the culinary offerings, the beauty of its landscape at all seasons, and its deeply rooted tradition of historic Inns, the blending of art and hospitality comes as a natural next step.
In this first Art Hotel exhibition and art sale, we are thrilled to have brought together one of Bucks County's most treasure Inns, one of the area's most established Fine Art galleries and the works by an African American expressionist painter from Philadelphia.
Having a keen sense of appreciation for this area's cultural diversity, curator Stephanie Lisle was inspired to combine the colorful and lively world of art exhibitions with the atmosphere of comfort and tranquility at the Centre Bridge Inn in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
The beautiful, historic, and well established Center Bridge Inn is not only a perfect get away retreat in bucolic Bucks County, it is set in the idyllic landscape of the Delaware River, perfect backdrop for weddings, romantic dinners and overnight stays during all seasons. Their selection of eight sophisticated and tastefully decorated guest rooms already feature themed artwork by Bucks County contemporary and traditional artists.
Gratz Gallery and Conservation Studio has been a leading authority on American Art, and an important member of the Bucks County art community for almost 40 years. Specializing in 19th and 20th century American paintings, with a focus on painters from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Gratz Gallery offers a wide selection of Fine Art from Impressionism to Modern Art. In addition to art investment Gratz Gallery offers custom framing and fine art conservation services. Included in the gallery's extensive selection of art, is a collection of works by African American expressionist painter Bernard Harmon.
Bernard Harmon (1935 - 1989) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1935. Harmon was primarily a portrait painter and a well loved teacher in the Philadelphia area. He was a graduate of the Philadelphia Museum School and Temple's Tyler School of Art. Beloved by many, Harmon taught in the Philadelphia School District, at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, at the University of the Arts, and at Drexel University. Harmon's portraits were commissioned by Philadelphia Jazz organist Jimmy Smith and Mayor Richardson Dilworth. Bernard Harmon was considered a Renaissance man by friends and colleagues for his interests not only in art but music and theater as well. He was familiar and friends with many contemporary African American artists such as Doc Thrash, Selma Burke, Paul Keene Jr., Allen Freelon and Charles Searles. His work has a loose expressionist style that can be related to the work of Alice Kneel.
When visiting the Delaware River community, stop in for dinner and a drink, listen to live music on the weekends, stay for the night, and get enchanted by the colorful art of Bernard Harmon. But don't wait too long; exhibitions will change just as the seasons do.
The Center Bridge Inn is located at 2998 River Rd, New Hope, PA 18938. Their hours of operations are by appointment for events, and restaurant hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday 12 - 9 pm and Sunday 5 - 8pm. For more information please visit their website at www.centrebridgeinn.com

Frank Hyder, who splits his time between Philadelphia and Miami, has become known for working across a variety of media. His paintings and sculpture have Show More...been widely exhibited in venues such as the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art's Museum of American Art, the Carnegie Museum in California, the La Salle Museum of Art in Philadelphia, and the National Museum of Catholic Art and History in New York among others. Hyder has also created several public art works, including three murals through the City of Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program: Hanging Garden of I-95, Honey's Garden, and Bell's Pond.
Hyder's fascination with the public sphere has manifested in a multimedia experience titled The Janis Project. Begun in 2015 and still continuing today, Hyder has created over a dozen large-scale, double-faced inflatable sculptures of heads. Hyder states of The Janis Project that each head, "which at once references Moai of Easter Island, Olmec heads and, the ancient Roman god of new endeavors, at the same time has its roots in street art and inflatable toys...Janis carries a message of equality and good will and dares to step out of the normal world of Art museums or Art Galleries to be among us. Made of resilient nylon and paint, Janis has found a place to make us all consider issues with a smile that often divide us."

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.

Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.

Dramatically funny, tender, provocative and ultimately political, it is a series of interviews with a diverse group of over 200 women about their vaginas, offering new perspectives on the complexities of growing up female and the hurdles women face in overcoming misogynist conceptions of the female body. Stay for a post-performance discussion with the cast and a representative of A Woman's Place.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.

ROI, Real-time Or Instead- works by Mark Price
February 1st- 28th
Mark Price's silkscreen printed collage exhibition ROI, Real-time Or Instead features Show More...new and recent silkscreen printed collage works from artist Mark Price.
Engaged with the silkscreen printing collage processes over the past ten years Price utilizes a self produced archive of printed imagery including optical patterns, found graphics, and gradient color fields that collage into rich and frenetic two dimensional compositions.
The works explore where our psychological and information architecture become one. The resulting compositions operate as high-resolution experiences that attempt to map out a mediation of internalized and externalized information flows. The compositions address the possibility of a static image of today that encompasses our multi-modal experience with an ever expanding built environment.
Mark Price is a graphic artist who uses the silkscreen printing process to produce 2-D and 3-D visual works.
Working with gallery director Christina Ray he has mounted three New York solo exhibitions including 'The New Real Fantasy Now' 2009, 'Designer Endgame Strategies' 2010, and 'Hyper 20XX' 2012.
Additionally his work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. In 2009 his work was selected by curator Aaron Betsky for inclusion in the internationally recognized Confines exhibition at the Institut Valencia d'Art Modern.
Free and open to the public Tuesday through Sunday. ...Show Less
