Title:  Painterly Poetry Of Quiet Places

Painterly Poetry of Quiet Places
Landscape Paintings by Joe Kazimierczyk

Feb 27 - March 30, 2011
Opening Reception: Sunday, Feb 27, 3-5pm

During the month of March, I'm having a solo show of my work at The Gallery at Verde in Kingston, NJ. I'll be showing mostly new work, including a few paintings done just a short walk from the gallery door.

The gallery is in a very senic location where I've painted quite a few times. Just outside the gallery is the D&R Canal at Lock Number 8, with a charming old locktender's house and the only surviving canal telegraph office on the canal. Just above the lock is a canal basin where barges could pull over to load and unload cargo.

The area is very rich in history: a short walk from the canal is the Millstone River with a 4 arch stone bridge crossing it. This bridge was built in 1798 to replace a wooden bridge that was destroyed by General George Washington's troops to prevent pursuit by Lord Cornwallis following the Battle of Princeton on January 3, 1777.

Across the stone arch bridge is the Kingston Flour Mill, built in the 1870's on the site of Jacob Skillman's grist mill from 1748. There's a small mill dam right here and just beyond it is the larger dam that creates Lake Carnagie.

From here you can walk for miles in either direction on the towpath or on other connecting trails. Check out the trail maps of the Kingston Greenways Association and plan a day of exploring the area. There's even a pair of bald eagles nesting in the nearby.

Since I've been painting at this location for a while, I was glad to learn that an art gallery had opened up here and I'm very grateful for this opportunity to show my work.

Kingston, NJ

Hours: Wed - Sat 11-5pm, Sun 12-4pm, or by appt.
609-865-5456 or 609-865-5812

Please note that the gallery is located right next to the D&R Canal in a building called The Artists' Collective at Verde, which it shares with 3 other shops. If you get directions to this address from a GPS or a mapping website, you'll end up several blocks away. Trust me on this, and don't trust your GPS! Just park near the canal and you'll be fine.


In addition to the Kingston paintings, I'll have some from my further travels, like these:

I hope you can see the show!
