NEW HOPE, Pa. — Without proper eyesight, people may miss out on the growing number of realism- styled paintings in New Hope’s Gold Light Gallery. In its annual juried art show, the 2-year-old gallery is bringing attention to both items: eye health and realist art.
Area artists are invited to submit impressionist, realist, and representational artwork to Gold Light, where jurors Jo-Ann Osnoe and Neilson Carlin will choose winning artworks that will receive cash awards. An additional award, “The Artist Eye Award” will also be given out during the March 7 awards night. The winner of the Artist Eye, chosen by juror Judith Fringuello, will receive $150.
The Artist Eye award is meant to draw attention to the importance of eye health, and the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia.
Gallery member and event organizer Lisa Kennedy said, “I just wanted to make artists aware
