"Perpetual Motion" Starts April 26 at Beauty Gallery in Edgmont

"Walking in the Rain, 36 x 72"
Painter Chris Niedland will be the featured artist at Beauty Gallery in Edgmont, with an Artist Reception scheduled for Thursday April 26, 2012 from 4 to 8 p.m. Beauty's exhibit of Niedland's new abstract paintings is titled "Perpetual Motion" and runs through June 10. The paintings feature exuberant colors and energetic patterns that engage the viewer.

Born in Media, PA, in 1966, Niedland lives in Wayne, PA. He is a self-taught artist and began painting professionally in 1991 while employed as an architect. Late in 2003, he left architecture to pursue painting full-time.

His painting style evolved out of an initial experiment in "automatic" painting, originally inspired by the "automatic" writings of the surrealist André Breton. Niedland's paintings are "automatic" in that he approaches each canvas without preconception as to how it should look when finished. He paints quickly, without revision, working from his subconscious, improvising like a jazz musician does with music.

Niedland has exhibited in numerous solo art shows at cafes and hotels in the Philadelphia area and on DuPont Circle in Washington, DC. More than 200 Niedland paintings reside in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and in Belgium, Canada, England, France, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Poland, Puerto Rico, and Spain.

Works by many local artists are available at Beauty: functional art glass by Robin Flynn (Newtown Square), paintings by Patricia O'Halloran (Haverford), Kenzig Design Lamps (Merion Station), and paintings by Deann Mills (Wynnewood).

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.
