"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).

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm. For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page , to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community. As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
