Artists share view of river in spring at Cross Pollination


Cross Pollination art gallery, 69 Bridge St., Lambertville, N.J., invites the public to an opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m. April 13, for “UpStream” – a group art show celebrating spring, the river and the fish that are coming back to spawn and start a new life cycle.

Ten local artists share their view of this season by the river in painting, photography, fibers and environmental art, April 12 to May 11.

They are: Abelardo Montano, who digitally manipulates his photographs to create images that reflect his Mexican heritage; Ayala Shimelman, a fiber artist using threads, fabrics and other materials as an alternative to a paint brush; Erika Rachel, who creates abstract paintings, screen printing, collage and photography; Gail Bracegirdle, a representational artist whose watercolors are filled with light and color; Gala Derroisn, whose camera captures fleeting moments; Heron Moon Fiber Arts, where Trisha Hamill creates whimsical fiber images; Modern Fossils, using reclaimed materials to create environmental fine art; Natalia Gali, who paints with acrylic and oil; SiriOm Singh, whose landscapes, abstract paintings and sculptures are intended to help the viewer experience inner peace, love and unity; and Tom Chiola, who combines bold palette along with a variety of tools to create textures, spaces and forms.

Cross Pollination Gallery, an artists owned gallery, features the art of Singh and Shimelman. Visit online.
