René Romero Schuler is a renowned painter with an extensive resume in both private, public and museum collections around the world. Her work focuses on the human condition and, most recognizably, the strength of the female form. In her latest exhibition Expanding the Narrative, Schuler invites guests into a deeper understanding of the story and her purpose, featuring works on paper and limited edition prints, which are an expansion of her artistic practice ¬– beyond paint and canvas. They are, another element of the overall narrative. The show is carefully curated into mini vignettes, with each story creating a dialogue in itself. This exhibition will be on view in tandem with the release of Schuler’s third book, titled “René Romero Schuler”. We invite you to join us, through the months of December and January, and enjoy this truly unique curation of works. “I experimented with using some handmade paper I had in the studio and played with a concept I had floating in my head about combining something inherently rough, organic, and imperfect, with something glitzy like gold. This concept comes from the idea that we dress ourselves up to face the day. Despite the inner difficulties that have shaped us, we try and look our best. And thus, the gilded ladies arrived. I love them so much for their elegant simplicity.” Rene' To see other works On View in the Gallery- https://www.cityfolkgallery.com/rene-romero-schuler/
Featuring Alan Fetterman. With his fresh, energetic signature-style brushwork and his dynamic tones of color, Alan's art delivers a powerful sense of both well-being and genuine goodness, seemingly unending. This new body of work “Colors of The Piedmont” focuses on the homes and living Landscape of the Piedmont region that stretches along the east coast of the Appalachian Mountains. Fetterman says: “I simply find our region’s old houses and sprawling lands beautiful to the eyes and heart. The mixed vibrancy of life as we know it today married to the history of our ancestors remains clear and solid in the vistas around us. I do my best to capture centuries of living on linen: The vista, the color, and the energy all held in perpetuity within a wonderfully hand-carved frame.” There are 22 paintings in this exhibition of various sizes, each of them housed in a hand-carved, hand-made frame designed specifically for the body of work. As one of Pennsylvania’s premier artists, this is Fetterman’s 49th solo-show throughout the region, and his third solo-show held here at CityFolk Gallery. Fetterman’s art is nationally recognized and highly collected. As a painter, sculptor, and poet, he's traveled extensively throughout the Americas and abroad, living and learning cultural values and old-world aesthetics. As a Kay scholar with a degree in philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania, and also a graduate from Bucks County Community College with a degree in American Studies, Alan transfers knowledge into art. He carries a personal and endearing connection to the rolling landscapes of Pennsylvania. And is officially recognized as Bucks County’s first Artist-in-Residence. He's a long-standing, distinguished member of the Philadelphia Sketch Club and a past member of New York City's Salmagundi Club. His work and life have been profiled in dozens of magazines, columns, and books, including features in "A Bucks County State of a Mind", "The Embraceable You” and “Illuminate.” I am once again proud and excited to invite collectors, art aficionados, and all visitors to our opening reception for Alan Fetterman to be held First Friday, February 7th, 2020 from 5 PM to 9 PM. Exhibition on view through February 29, 2020.
Emerging Artist, Riley Eckman This exhibition showcases the best artwork I have created over the past year. Each art piece demonstrates a different medium and creation process. Each is individual in subject and method in the attempt to capture the world around us.
