FIRST FRIDAYS in Skippack Village: Artist Joseph A. Lopez / Gallery Opening Reception July 3rd, 2015

Woodscapes

Statement
"Even though my life has not been one of a typical artist, I have never stopped sketching the world and ideas around me and I will always be an impossible dreamer looking for the beauty that surrounds us every day.  I have been accused of always needing a new form of artistic expression, but I can’t think of any other way to get to know myself better.

skippack first friday art gallery openingIf I had been surrounded by only art, I never would have learned where to find it.  A large portion of my early life was dedicated to a school with the sole purpose of turning ski racers into Olympians.  Injury was a constant companion and I found a love of music (in the form of a guitar) that helped me pass the time and subdue my latent creative thirst.   Continuing on with my education at Boston College, I was exposed to a wealth of new experiences and interests, but as my BA in Economics will tell you, not many of those things were of artistic descent.  The piano, did however, sneak it’s way into my life one summer.  After college, I began a career in Design and Sales of Point of Purchase displays, which I still do to this day. 

skippack first friday art gallery openingI have always loved painting, but I must confess that the idea for my Woodscapes came to me because I was having a hard time finding a birthday present for my father.  I’m so glad that I decided to make him something instead. 

I like my style to be free-form and bold.  Rather than using reference material, I like to use the character and qualities of the wood as a guide towards my final vision.  Wood is a very challenging medium to work with, but when used properly, it can make the art for you.

Carpentry and art seem like such an unlikely pairing.  On the surface they sit on opposing sides of the spectrum: one side favoring rigid adherence and the other emotional release, the age-old battle of form versus function.  It is the balancing of that ideal that makes this form of art such a great fit for me.  My paintings are an expression of who I am as an artist.  My woodscapes are an expression of my personality as a whole."


Opening Reception:  July 3, 2015, 5 – 10pm

Local Artist Debuts New Photography Studio Gallery in Skippack Village, Pennsylvania

Since 2002 local photographer Jason Diliberto has been capturing every type of wedding imaginable.  Within his body of work he allows every moment captured to speak for themselves, and is described by many as “daring”, “different,” and “gorgeous.”  His service is easy to work with, while keeping a low profile during weddings.


Diliberto is excited to announce the debut of his new photography studio opening mid-July in Green Wolf’s Village Barn Shoppes, located at 4010 West Skippack Pike, Skippack, PA.  On hand at the studio visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy Diliberto’s vast array of original and limited edition prints, hand selected Polaroid cameras, and other related items for sale.  Additionally the studio will be available for solo and group photography sessions, pet portraits, and wedding and commercial consultations.
