American Landscape Art by Katalin Luczay

River Scene, Hunterdon County

On view: July 6-30, 2018
Artist’s Reception: Saturday, July 14, 11:30 am-1:30 pm
Ms. Luczay showed aptitude in drawing at an early age growing up in war-torn Hungary in the fifties. After a turbulent time of escaping her country, settling in Canada and later in the US, she seriously took to developing her talent. She is basically self-taught, but took the chance to participate in different workshops and private instruction from Bucks County, PA artists. Working primarily in oil, Ms. Luczay is also adept in pastels and acrylics. In addition to being known for her seascape and landscape art, she is a recognized portrait painter as well. Her style is representational realism, and she likes to paint in a painterly way with a play of light in her works.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Portrait Drawings by Andrea K. Schneider

Mother & Child

On view: August 1-30, 2018
Drawing has always been Andrea Schneider’s first love. A Mendham resident, she says, “I love the feeling when the drawing media in my hand contacts the texture of the drawing surface. Knowledge of traditional drawing principles and acquiring the skills to draw well has been a lifelong pursuit. To me, all the formal elements of art that I love–line, value, shape, form, space and composition–all come together in a unique way in portraiture.”
