The Gourgaud Gallery will host “Flora, Fauna and Mystical,” an exhibit of works by Linda Gilbert, July 8-27 at the gallery's location in Cranbury Town Hall, 23-A N. Main St. in Cranbury.
The show is a compilation of artwork Gilbert has created over the past 2 years.
Painting is a passion for communicating your emotions and thoughts," Gilbert says in a statement. "I communicate my inner self by painting landscapes, seascapes, people, animals, interesting architecture and fantasy. The paintings in my collections reflect my imaginative and experiential view of photographs that I've taken and sketches that I have made, in my travels. I aim to tell a story of my mind through my artwork by altering reality to create a whimsical world. I work predominately in Acrylic Paint, and occasionally use oils. I enjoy the Acrylic medium, allowing me to work on a painting in my own space of time."
Gilbert was a New York City Art Teacher for 30 years. Now retired, she teaches an acrylic painting class for retired New York City Teachers for the United Federation of Teachers in Manalapan. She is a member of the Cranbury Arts Council, and has exhibited in several art shows and local galleries.
The artwork is for sale with 20 percent of each sale going to support the Cranbury Arts Council and its programs. Cash or a check made out to the Cranbury Arts Council is accepted as payment.
The exhibit is on view Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and 1-3 p.m. on July 8, 15 and 22. The opening reception will be held July 8. As a special incentive on opening day of the exhibit, a small matted painting (matted in an 11 x 14 matte) with any purchase of larger painting is being offered for free.
