The husband and wife team of John Schmidtberger and Corinne Lalin will be showing their artwork at SFA Gallery this month. “Two Views: New Work from Maine and Pennsylvania” runs from September 6th through October 1st, with an opening reception planned for Saturday September 16th from 4-6PM. Light Refreshments will be served. As always, SFA events are free and open to the public.
Corinne Lalin will be displaying work made with a broad range of media, including encaustic (a wax-based studio medium), plein-air oil pastel and oil painting, as well as mixed media. John Schmidtberger will be showing oil paintings from this year’s Bucks County Plein-Air Festival, a series of small studies painted on the Milford/Upper Black Eddy Bridge, and an extended series of landscapes and architectural subjects from Maine.
For the first time in many years, Corinne and John were able to paint plein-air style together during two extended trips to Maine. This show provides a unique opportunity to showcase their different sensibilities when working from the same subject matter.
“Two Views” coincides with SFA Gallery’s sixth year in business and the couple’s twenty-ninth wedding anniversary.
