"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).

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…
