Artists Beatrice Bork and Joe Kazimierczyk will exhibit their nature-inspired paintings in an art exhibition titled “In Our Nature,” running Oct. 8 through Nov. 1 at Artists’ Gallery, 18 Bridge St., Lambertville, N.J.
Kazimierczyk and Bork both draw their inspiration from their outdoor experiences and it’s simply in their nature to paint what they love. Kazimierczyk, an oil painter, expresses the beauty of the region’s landscapes, forests and rivers. Bork’s watercolor paintings display a sensitivity to detail and composition, elevated through direct observation and love of her animal subjects.
Bork, a resident of Hunterdon County, has worked to established her career within the genre of animal art, focusing on birds. She has received many accolades and shown in numerous solo and juried exhibitions at regional galleries, various institutions and museums throughout the U.S. and abroad.
For over 25 years as a professional artist, among Bork’s achievements include signature status in the prestigious international group, the Society of Animal Artists (SAA), where her work has been selected for several “Art and the Animal” exhibits, and she was thrilled to be one of the recipients of the Don Eckelberry Award for outstanding bird art. She has had her work displayed in a variety of publications, and is proud to have had her work acquired by collectors from around the world.
Kazimierczyk lives on the Sourland Mountain near Neshanic Station, N.J., and finds much of his inspiration in the area immediately surrounding his home. Having always been drawn to the beauty of nature, he finds most of his subject matter on the hiking and bicycling trips that he loves to take – whether near his home, or further afield.
His painting is a natural extension of his ramblings and explorations of the countryside. Kazimierczyk has earned his accolades as a self-taught artist and has been exhibiting his work extensively for over 10 years. He is the recipient of many awards from the area’s most prestigious juried exhibitions, including the Art Exhibit of Phillips’ Mill and Ellarslie Trenton City Museum – as well as featured solo exhibits and articles in regional publications.
