A native of Bucks County April creates in her workshop home in Wrightstown, PA.

Throughout her life April Ann itched to travel and visually experience the world; so she spends her time exploring and “Journaling Life” thru her art, a good amount of it in her home in Northern Spain. The light is different there, naturally. The light, culture, color, surroundings, and experiences are reflected in April's work. "Wherever I may be, travels both near and far I enjoy exploring how to represent the elements of life around me. It is an exploration of the world and bringing the inner visual image out on canvas."

The influence of April trekking in Northern Spain, Southern France,
Morocco, Cuba, northern New York, London, England and Delft, Holland to name a few places is apparent
in her work here locally; the color and inspiration comes thru.

"We take our past into our future."
Pastel is April's medium of choice for working en plein aire, selected for its rich color, texture and immediate
results. Almost always you’ll find April sketching and painting local scenes with graphite, watercolor and ink; wherever she may be. It’s “Journaling of Life” it’s what she is about.

Through creating April finds avenues to document her thoughts and opinions, and express the colors and mental
images that exist in her mind’s eye. Journaling the world as she sees it and sharing it with others is key to her
work; visually documenting experiences and relationships that have shaped her life. With context for the paintings coming from life’s experiences and surroundings April continues to explore bringing the inside out as a life goal.

April Ann studied at Temple University and Tyler School of Art. She enjoys independent studies in life drawing.
April has a background in botanical illustration. "The best though is painting with artist friends and creating with my partner Paul. He and I work in multimedia; metals, stone, re-purposed materials, wood… you name it we use it."
April sponsors the growth of fine art expression thru art class workshops and bringing young people the idea of a “Journaling Life” workshop for young students; most recently teaching at R.I.’s
Henry Barnard School, a part of Rhode Island College.

April Ann's sculpture “Leaf Down” was in the prestigious Phillips Mill 91st Juried Exhibition. Her paintings have shown in Philips’ Mill and Ellarslie Open juried exhibitions. Recently she was honored to receive first place at Willingboro Art Alliance Juried plein air competition and received award at the Absecon Art Alliance plein air Paint-out. April's gallery shows included “The Way We Saw Morocco” Wrightstown, “Perspectives In Travel” New Hope PA, and private exhibition at Newtown’s own Countryside Gallery.

Alexander Serebryany
Alexander was born in Odessa, Ukraine 1966. His artistic credo, influenced primarily by a Ukrainian education and background, was largely formed prior to his immigration to the United States in 1992, where he lived until 2004.
One of Alexander's primary artistic goals is to combine modernism with grotesque realism. Through the prism of this combination of the real and unreal he attempts to depict a unique concept.
 "I'm creating permanent images of impermanent objects at their most impermanent moments."
 
Parna Surabischwili
Parna signs his works P. Zurabishvili. This is the proper spelling of his Georgian last name (an homage to his roots in the beautiful Transcaucasian jewel of a country, Georgia). 
Parna was born in 1965 to a family of an artist-painter father and singer, language teacher mother. He started painting around the age of six, and developed his love for art and his skills by watching his father paint large compositions and portraits. 
He studied at the Tbilisi Academy of Fine Arts. After graduating, he married his college sweetheart, also an artist, Matiko Mamaladze. Parna lives with his family in Media, PA, loves the outdoors, and paints everything that impresses and charms him. 
 “Pure art is an artist’s expression of his excitement or impression by manipulating available mediums into original and unique creations.”
“I don’t think the truthful and masterful copying of an image onto the canvas fits my definition of art. It only becomes art when there’s an original and innovative approach present, which transforms mere ‘transcription’ into artistic transfiguration.”

Seven Strikes:
Bucks County native Seven Strikes always dreamed of making a splash in the art world and those dreams materialized when he started as a tattoo artist at the young age of 20. The owner of Seven Strikes Studio is living the American dream. Seven came to the States at the age of nine. His journey didn't stop there. A lover of arts, theater, dance, and performance, helped shape this entrepreneur into the man he is today.

Drawn early to urban art, graffiti, and graphic design, Seven honed his skills learned on the streets painting murals into the beautiful gesso canvas works he creates for gallery exhibitions today. Seven's talents don't stop there, having dove head first into the modeling industry and has scored early success in magazine and print.

 When Jean stepped away from her professional career in 2000 she began to paint seriously.  At that time she had the privilege of meeting Bucks County artist James Feehan.  Under his guidance Jean launched a new career path dedicated to painting still life subjects.  The availability of instructional materials, workshops, galleries and museums broadened her vision.  As a docent at the James Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, PA, Jean continued to gain insight into style and technique.  The journey to the present has been both satisfying and rewarding.  Jean has been juried into prestigious shows and has won awards.  Many of her paintings are in private collections as well as the Trenton City Museum. The journey is far from over, however, for each painting presents new challenges and the joy of successful completion.

"Extraordinary paintings of ordinary objects are intoxicating to me.  They entice me to paint still life subjects in the realist tradition.  My subjects of choice are often common, everyday objects which show the beauty marks of age and wear.  The patinas of tarnished metals and discolored enamelware, worn surfaces and damaged edges invite me to explore the depths and  nuances of their lights and shadows.  Hopefully the aesthetic of the arrangement, based on light, color, line and shape, creates an enduring dynamic."

Resident artist Ilya Lerner is currently residing in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Born in Moscow, Ilya has been involved in the fine arts since his early childhood, receiving in-depth training in the famed classical tradition of Russian art. Since the age of 20, Lerner has been a professional artist.

 Currently, Lerner works primarily en plein air (outdoors) but also paints figurative work, portraits, still-lifes, and is a master draftsman and sculptor. His style is rooted in Impressionist/Realist tradition amalgamated with Modernist and contemporary influences. Lerner was mentored by the leading contemporary realist painter George Nick, who included Lerner's work in the show, titled "Galvanized Truth: A Tribute to George Nick," at The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, Mass.

 Lerner's work has been featured in more than 30 group exhibitions and was the subject of 10 solo shows, including a major retrospective in the Roberson Museum in Binghamton, N.Y. He received the Vasari Classic Oil Colors Grant in 2013 and has previously been the recipient of the annual El Paso Museum of Art Purchase Award, a Cultural Connections grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and Arts Council of Houston and a Special Opportunity Stipend from the New York Foundation for the Arts.

 Prior to teaching at Alvernia University in Reading, Pennsylvania and Hobart & William Smith Colleges, Lerner held positions at The Art School in Vestal, N.Y., Oregon State University, Chautauqua Institution School of Art and Lee College as well as painting workshops in Norman, Oklahoma, and the Fundacion Valparaiso in Mojacar, Spain. He has also completed residencies at the Mill Atelier Gallery, Buffalo River National Park and the Vermont Studio Center.

 Having a rigorous academic education in both Russia and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, he provides students with the tools they need to develop their own artistic style. Ilya instructs painting workshops for Artists of Yardley and is the owner of Lerner Studio Art School, a private art school. Lerner received a B.S. in Management Information Systems from Moscow Technical University of Communications, and his MFA in Studio Art from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Ilya Lerner's original oil paintings can be seen on display at our gallery on 2 South State Street until May.

Bucks County painter and portrait artist George Gospodinov was born in Eastern Europe. His passion for art began during formal childhood lessons at the Fine Arts School in his birth town in Sofia, Bulgaria under direct guidance of Rumen Nechev. Naturally, George idolizes art history. Inspired by the genius of both Michelangelo & Leonardo da Vinci, as well as classical Greek and Roman history. George studied human anatomy to transfer every human fiber on canvas.
He has painted for over three decades and in the past few years has found his inspirations in Newtown, Bucks County where he exhibits and engages with the local art community. Many of George's works reside in private collections. His main focus is to spur local artists to bring back the joy of the arts to the heart of Newtown. His original works can be seen on display at Countryside Gallery & Custom Frame Design throughout October into early November. George is also currently accepting client commissions.

STICKERTOWN 2021:
A collaborative showcase of National and International street artist bringing their urban masterpieces to the suburbs of Philadelphia throughout the month of August.
 
These metropolitan artists get their custom stickers printed, draw their stickers on crack and peel adhesive paper or “borrowed” USPS labels, & others will hand silkscreen their own vinyl stickers. Some incorporate this vinyl into their art pieces and others will use a homemade recipe of wheat paste to adhere their art to murals or the urban landscape. One thing is certain, all of these artists are wholly original and worthy of exhibition in a gallery of fine art. Come out this August to our South State Street Gallery and experience this showcase presented by _sevenwashere_ and sponsored by DRS for yourself!

Kelly is also a member of the Doylestown Art League showing twice a year in their juried exhibition. Her patients, family and friends have also commissioned her to create pencil drawings from their cherished photos. Although Kelly is most comfortable working in pen and ink, graphite and color pencil, Kelly also explores watercolor under the guidance of Tom Rutledge at the Thomas E. Rutledge Artist Guild in West Creek. Kelly Sterr's original artwork can be found on permanent display at our South State Street gallery. Kelly is also now accepting commissions.

You Can Learn to Do Plein Air & Be A Part of a Bucks County Tradition!
 
THE BUCKS COUNTY PLEIN AIR TRADITION
Bucks County has a long tradition of plein air painting that began with the likes of William L. Lathrop who settled in New Hope in 1898 and started a summer art school. The area's rolling hills were spectacular, and the river, its tributaries, and the Delaware Canal were picturesque. The natural beauty attracted the artist Edward Redfield (1869-1965), who settled north of the town. Redfield painted nature in bold and vibrant colors, and was “the pioneer of the realistic painting of winter in America.” His thick layering distinguished him from his contemporaries, and he amassed more honors and awards than any other artist in the New Hope Colony. His style is distinguished by its color, light, and usual time of day when painting. The third major artist to settle in the area was Daniel Garber (1880-1958), who came to New Hope in 1907... known for his "luminous, poetic renditions of the Delaware River."

 The Wild Light Project:

The Wild Light Project was founded by Philadelphia based photographer Mercedes Spinetti in 2018. Beginning as a short study of landscape photographs, Wild Light Project ultimately grew into the collection of nature, portrait and exploration work that it is today. Mercedes’ inclination toward natural elements is translated through her work with the primary use of natural light and a subdued approach to her subject. Compiled, the Wild Light Project photographs build an authentic narrative.

Seven Strikes:

 Bucks County native Seven Strikes always dreamed of making a splash in the art world and those dreams materialized when he started as a tattoo artist at the young age of 20. The owner of Seven Strikes Studio is living the American dream. Seven came to the States at the age of nine. His journey didn't stop there.

Resident artist Ilya Lerner is currently residing in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Born in Moscow, Ilya has been involved in the fine arts since his early childhood, receiving in-depth training in the famed classical tradition of Russian art. Since the age of 20, Lerner has been a professional artist.
Currently, Lerner works primarily en plein air (outdoors) but also paints figurative work, portraits, still-lifes, and is a master draftsman and sculptor. His style is rooted in Impressionist/Realist tradition amalgamated with Modernist and contemporary influences.
Lerner was mentored by the leading contemporary realist painter George Nick, who included Lerner's work in the show, titled "Galvanized Truth: A Tribute to George Nick," at The Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, Mass.
Lerner's work has been featured in more than 30 group exhibitions and was the subject of 10 solo shows, including a major retrospective in the Roberson Museum in Binghamton, N.Y. He received the Vasari Classic Oil Colors Grant in 2013 and has previously been the recipient of the annual El Paso Museum of Art Purchase Award, a Cultural Connections grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts and Arts Council of Houston and a Special Opportunity Stipend from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
Prior to teaching at Alvernia University in Reading, Pennsylvania and Hobart & William Smith Colleges, Lerner held positions at The Art School in Vestal, N.Y., Oregon State University, Chautauqua Institution School of Art and Lee College as well as painting workshops in Norman, Oklahoma, and the Fundacion Valparaiso in Mojacar, Spain. He has also completed residencies at the Mill Atelier Gallery, Buffalo River National Park and the Vermont Studio Center.
Having a rigorous academic education in both Russia and at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, he provides students with the tools they need to develop their own artistic style. Ilya instructs painting workshops for Artists of Yardley and is the owner of Lerner Studio Art School, a private art school.
Lerner received a B.S. in Management Information Systems from Moscow Technical University of Communications, and his MFA in Studio Art from Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
Ilya Lerner's original oil paintings can be seen on display at our gallery on 2 South State Street until November.

Bucks County native Seven Strikes always dreamed of making a splash in the art world and those dreams materialized when he started as a tattoo artist at the young age of 20. The owner of Seven Strike Studios is living the American dream. Seven came to the States from the Ukraine at the age of nine. His journey didn't stop there. A lover of arts, theater, dance, and performance, helped shape this entrepreneur into the man he is today. Shortly after opening a tattoo studio in the heart of Bucks County, Seven also created a workplace and a studio for his blossoming fine arts career. Drawn early to urban art, graffiti, and graphic design, Seven honed his skills learned on the streets painting murals into the beautiful gesso canvas works he creates for gallery exhibitions today. Seven's talents don't stop there, he recently has dove head first into the modeling industry and has scored early success in magazine and print. This passion driven artist enjoys channeling his energy into endurance cycling, fire breathing, dance and performance art as well. Seven's original paintings can be found on permanent display at our South State Street gallery.

His creative eye helps him to formulate his colors into bright high concept works full of color, pizzazz, and energy. His works are enticement for the artistic eye and brightness for the spirit. They are one of a kind.

V Longo II is proud to announce that he will auction two original pieces of artwork during this month's exhibition to support A Love For Life charity and the nonprofits fight against Pancreatic Cancer.

Both of which hang at the Health and Wellness Center in Warrington where Kelly works as a phlebotomist for Doylestown Health. Kelly is also a member of the Doylestown Art League showing twice a year in their juried exhibition.
