Each year, Artists’ Gallery, one of Lambertville’s longest running art galleries, celebrates the holiday season and the beginning of the new year with a group show.  “Our Holiday Show is an excellent opportunity both for collectors and art lovers to meet the gallery artists and for the artists to offer a selection of work they are especially excited to present,” says Beatrice Bork, a gallery artist and co-chair of Public Relations. “It is a fun event with serious artworks but at a variety of price points just in time for the holidays”, adds Paul Grecian who is also a gallery artist and shares PR responsibilities.

The artists of Artists’ Gallery include Jane Adriance, José Anico, Beatrice Bork, Gail Bracegirdle,  Paul Grecian, Richard Harrington, Joe Kazimierczyk,  Alan Klawans, Patricia Lange, Alla Podolsky, James Pryor, Eric Rhinehart, Carol Sanzalone, Michael Schweigart, Charles David Viera, and Andrew Werth. Artists’ Gallery hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11am-6pm, or by private appointment.

Since its inception in 1995, Artists’ Gallery has exhibited the work of area artists in a variety of styles and media. This diversity of styles is a point of pride for the artist-run gallery and means collectors of all types can enjoy exploring the gallery’s many different rooms.  Visitors will find paintings, photography, digital prints, sculpture, and more in media that include oil, watercolor, pastel, acrylic, ink, and ceramic.

Each of the artists on the gallery’s roster was juried in by their peers based upon the quality and style of their work. Because Artists’ Gallery is run by the artists, visitors benefit from being able to speak with at least one exhibitor during each visit and may meet several artists during a group show. The artists are always pleased to speak about their materials, techniques, and motivations.

Cheaper by the Dozen at ActorsNET @ The Heritage Center
Dec 20 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Dramatized by Christopher Sergel, from the book by Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr., and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey, directed by Maryalice Rubins-Topoleski.
“Cheaper by the Dozen” is the story of the Gilbreth family and how they cope with some changes familiar to many families. The story follows members of a large and unique family whose father is one of the great pioneers of industrial efficiency. He applies his unorthodox methods to his large family, running his household like a factory. The results are terribly embarrassing, funny and—it must be admitted—extremely effective! Anne, the oldest, rebels; both Dad and she are upset by the lack of understanding between them. But there is a reason behind dad’s methods. 
This play is both amusing and touching and great for all ages.
