David did an impressive heavy impasto winter scene for us last year and it drew a lot of attention. The quality of this piece really must be viewed in person. Come and see it shadfest weekend. Register to bid and win it at the live auction on Sunday, May 1, 3pm. Leave an absentee bid or arrange a phone bid too.

"I have been painting for 20 years and living in Bucks County gives me wonderful landscapes to paint".

Life is Abstract. Gary is too.

Artist: Gary Giordano, Entitled, #7. 18 x 28", Acrylic painted directly on to board.

Gary Giordano has single handedly created the new school of Lambertville artist...the way Greenwich Village must have been like in the 1950's. An open studio where anyone can flop on a dusty sofa and watch the artist at work while shooting the breeze about what's goin on....and buy an original work for a decent price. Hob nob with other artists and locals at his cozy studio at 28 Coryell Street.

Thanks Gary for a great abstract expressionist painting!

Own it. Bid on this poster on Sunday, May 1!
