SUNSET SPECTACULAR”: This painting by Ilene Rubin is featured in the eighth annual “Points of View Art Show and Sale,” coming to the New Hope Arts Center in New Hope, Pa., September 9 to 11.
The eighth annual “Points of View Art Show and Sale,” featuring six local artists, will be presented during the weekend of September 9. This year, the show will be located at New Hope Arts Center at 2 Stockton Avenue in New Hope, Pa. The show opens with a reception on Friday, September 9 from 6 to 9 p.m., and continues Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11 from 12 to 5 p.m.
Showcasing their art will be Bob Barish, Jeanne Chesterton, Florence Moonan, Susan Roseman, Ilene Rubin, and Dora Siemel. All art is for sale.
Chesterton and Rubin have been creating the “Points of View Art Show” in the Bucks County area since 2014 and are pleased to be hosting this year’s show in the heart of New Hope. Along with a who’s who list of local artists, they have found that joining talent with location to exhibit and sell art has been quite the successful endeavor.
The exhibitors at the “Point of View Art Show” are all well-known, award-winning artists who bring a unique voice and interpretation to the visual world around them. At the same time, each offers an impressive body of work, each professionally created and available for one weekend only.
There is something for everyone with little to no overlap of style or range. Each has amassed their own following and niche in an otherwise crowded art field in the Bucks County region. It’s a unique blend with a wide price range, so that anyone who is a collector will certainly have a diverse choice, while a casual tourist will easily find a treasure at the New Hope Arts Center.
Rubin is a self-taught artist who has lived in Elkins Park; Thousand Oaks, Calif.; Boulder, Colo.; and now calls Doylestown, Pa., home. She received the Ty Hodanish award for Oil Painting in the Artsbridge 2021 Member Show in March 2021 and in the 34th Annual Bucks Fever Juried Art Exhibition “Celebrating Bucks County Artists.” She is a published author of two novels. She was a participating artist in the ongoing virtual 2021 Bucks County Chamber of Commerce Bucks Fever Virtual Studio Artist Tour and was the Featured Artist in Bucks County Magazine in June 2021. She is a member of most Bucks County Art organizations and previously served as vice president of the New Hope Art League. She is currently the chair of the ongoing Art Show at the Lower Bucks Hospital for The Artists of Bristol on the Delaware.
“ORNATELY ORANGE”: This oil painting by Jeanne Chesterton will be part of the eighth annual “Points of View Art Show and Sale,” featuring the work of six local artists, on exhibit September 9 to 11 at the New Hope Arts Center in New Hope, Pa.
Chesterton is an award-winning Bucks County artist known for her realistic still life paintings. Choice of subject may range from the formal and delicate to the ordinary and worn, depending upon the voice within. The beauty marks of age and wear as seen in tarnished metal ware and mellowed ceramic ware remain a constant lure. She has exhibited her work in over 250 shows, and her paintings can be found in the permanent collection of the Trenton City Museum as well as many private collections throughout the United States.
