Rhinehart's Works Part of "Oil and Water" Exhibition at Artists' Gallery

July 20, 2014 at 9:50 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - Summit resident Eric Rhinehart will showcase his art as part of a dual show, entitled "Oil and Water," at the Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.

Rhinehart will be joined by Charles David Viera in an exhibition that captures the subtle creative tension both artists that artists bring to their subjects.  The show will  l run from August 7 to September 7, and feature works in oil, acrylic, and watercolor paints, as well as a number of pastels.  The event marks the second time the artists have teamed up for a show.

Moments play a central role in both Rhinehart's and Viera's art.  In some works, time seems to be on pause -- movement halted for a fraction of time -- compelling the viewer to step into the action.  "Some of my pieces are more voyeuristic," said Rhinehart.  "You feel like you are looking into someone else's life -- someone else's personal reality -- as they enjoy a meal, a swim or simply get on with the work of their lives."

In this show, Viera will present works primarily in oil and oil pastels.  He brings a unique perspective to his colorful images of landscape and nature that are at once common and complex.  "I like to think about the action, the tension, that is behind each image," he explained.  "The viewer is left to wonder what will happen after the captured moment."
Rhinehart has a degree in illustration from Parsons The New School of Design, and is a practicing art director.  He has had one-man and group shows in New York, Detroit, St. Louis, and Washington, DC, and has held workshops at the Hunterdon Art Museum and the Hunterdon Water Color Society.
Viera’s work has been included in exhibitions at the First Street Gallery, the Adam Gimbel Gallery, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Nassau County Museum in New York, and locally at the Riverrun Gallery and Coryell Gallery in Lambertville.  An inspired educator, Charles is currently an instructor at the Arts Council of Princeton, and the Hunterdon Art Museum.
Guest can join the artists at an opening reception Saturday August 9, from 4-8 p.m.  The Artists' Gallery is a partnership of eighteen established artists with national and international reputations, attracting discerning collectors, and art lovers from all over New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware.  It is located at 18 Bridge Street in Lambertville, with gallery hours of Thursdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. - 6 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. - 9 p.m., and Sundays 11 a.m. - 6 p.m.
