Patricia Hutton Galleries exhibit celebrates spring


Patricia Hutton Galleries presents its Spring Exhibition – Growth & Renewal.

The gallery features seasonal landscape and still life, which celebrates the season. Verdant pastures, streams, farmlands and blossoming trees as well as florals fill the walls of the gallery, which is located in the historic Kolbe House in Doylestown.

The show is gallery-wide, featuring at least 15 award-winning artists, including two who are new to the gallery.

Robert Papp has had a long and full career as an illustrator for novels, children’s books, and magazines, but in the last few years is dedicating himself to portraits and figure paintings as well as still life. His OPA award winning painting, “Mia” is a part of the show.

Artist Magazine honored Papp with one of its Cover Award Prizes and interviews in its Autumn 2023 edition.

Coincidentally, John N Booth, the gallery’s other new artist, received the First Prize for Still Life in the January-February 2024 edition of the same magazine. Booth also paints figures which are romantic in nature and are often surrounded by colorful gardens. A musician as well as a painter, he recently moved to Pennsylvania.

Small seasonal Impressionistic still life by the artist will also be featured. Among many other awards, Booth received the Newington Award – a Best in Show – from the American Artists Professional League at the Salmagundi Club in New York.

Other artists who have contributed new work to the Spring Exhibition include Katharine Krieg, who has recently been accepted as an artist member to both the Hudson Valley Art Association and the Rockport Art Association. Her “Looking Back,” oil is the classic Bucks County Spring farm scene with its dappled light and verdant richness. Dean Thomas’s “Clymer Mill on the Tohickon” also pays homage to the local springtime countryside. Still life paintings, including those by Frank Arcuri and Janine Dunn, Wade bring beautiful light and vibrant color to the seasonal exhibition.

Visit the website or call 215-348-1728 for information. The gallery is located at 47 W. State St. in Doylestown and is open Wednesday through Sunday.
