Artist's choice. It's all good. (very good)

Left: Artist: John Schmidtberger, Wooden Boat. 18 x 28" (overall poster size).  Oil on board.

John was recently written about in Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine, in an article about contemporary children’s portraiture. His work has also been reviewed in the New York Times. Prominent collectors include Kate White, author and editor-in-chief at Cosmopolitan, and Charles Cawley, former CEO at MBNA. 

From 1984 to 1987 John studied with painter Neil Welliver (1929-2005), sculptor Robert Engman, and printmaker Hitoshi Nakazato (1936-2010) earning a BFA and MFA from the University of Pennsylvania.
John’s work has been exhibited at the James A. Michener Museum, Doylestown, PA; The Prince Street Gallery, New York, NY; Elan Fine Arts, Rockland, ME; Camden Falls Gallery, Camden, Me; The Quiet Life, Lambertville, NJ; and many other venues.

John is currently showing at the Quiet Life Gallery at Ferry and S. Main Streets here in Lambertville. It's a very inspiring show and portrays the beauty of our river towns with a fresh eye and a new hand. Thanks John for agreeing to create an original poster for us at the last minute. We appreciate it.

visit: Quiet Life Gallery and John Schmidtberger to see more.

Right: Artist: Jane Gilday, Illuminated text: water planet. 18 x 28" (overall poster size). Watercolor, crayon, acrylic interference pigment painted directly onto acid-free board.

Jane simply states she's a 'Pisces' and that's all. She is a talented painter, musician and philosopher among other things. Thanks Jane for another great piece.

Jane is represented by the Hrefna Jonsdottir Gallery on Bridge Street here in Lambertville.

These are all original paintings, NOT prints.
