For six weeks in July and August (July 17th - August 25th) the Jeffrey Meier Gallery in Lambertville, NJ will be transformed into an open artist studio with three different artists each 'taking over' for two-week long residencies. During each session the gallery will be used as a combination active studio and solo art exhibit. Original pieces of art will be on display and for sale for the duration of the artists residence. Select pieces will also be available online.
Each session will kick-off with a launch party to introduce the artist. Brooklyn-based artist Jason Mones will begin the series with an opening Friday, July 17th from 6-9pm. Artist Matthew Marquis from Hatfield, PA will launch his residency Friday, July 31st. Painter Thomas Duane, also from Pennsylvania, will be in residence starting Friday, August 14th.
"The concept of Summer Studios fulfilled two goals for me: it allowed the gallery to incorporate a 'live' element during a traditionally quieter period of the year and it also gave me the opportunity to showcase talented local artists which isn't always my focus during my regular show program," said Meier. The culmination of the series with be a three person group show of selected works that will run the the month of September.
