Remembering Libby Neiburg

Libby and Gordon Neiburg have been a presence in the New Hope Community for many years, covering events, openings, galas and exhibitions for the Bucks County Herald. The team was gracious, interested and involved in so much of our cultural life, yet Libby's passing early in 2020 has been overshadowed by the recent crisis. Likely, many still are not aware she is no longer with us.

New Hope Arts fondly remembers their many visits and we are grateful that Gordon is still keeping on his rounds in these difficult times. Gordon and Libby were partners in work and life. Gordon says he thinks of his darling wife every day.

Let's pause to remember her cheerful spirit, joy and enthusiasm. She was a gift to the community.


Remembering Gene Gladston

Eugene Gladston, known to everyone as Gene, was born in The Bronx, New York in 1928. An artist, businessman, avid birder, theatre and opera aficionado, conservationist, community supporter and well-loved New Hope resident, Gene lived in New York City until 1993 when he moved to Bucks County with his wife, photographer Wendy Gladston. Impassioned by art at an early age, Gene was a friend to New Hope Arts from its inception, and was presented in several shows by Robin Larsen. He created the Artist Circle exhibition group that showed in the gallery in 2013.


New Hope Art is the community.

Bill Jersey New Hope Arts long-standing artist member and nonigenerian ( 90+) is also an award winning documentary film maker. His 1966 film A Time for Burning has received attention recently in many blogs and postings with regard to current social issues and unrest. Bill invited us to share the film via the Internet Archive, a non profit film repository following this link for A Time For Burning


New Hope Arts Outdoor Sculpture Project is a cultural and recreational asset in these times, when appropriate social distancing is practiced.

Outdoor Sculpture Project featured on Delaware & Leigh National Heritage Corridor news

The Sculpture Project is still free accessible and walkable in an appropriate social distancing way! Great for cycling too since there are over 2 square miles of distance between our 20 installations along roadways and paths from the Borough of New Hope into Solebury.

The Outdoor Sculpture Project is featured among Sculpture Parks in the June issue of Sculpture Magazine

Jack Rosen - Photographer

New Hope, PA photographer Jack Rosen (1923 - 2006) is considered by many to be one of the best "unknown" photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. Acclaimed primarily for his photos of New Hope and Bucks County, PA, Jack also was an outstanding photographer of celebrities, and his humorous yet telling editorial photos reveal his sense of justice, while appealing to our higher sense of ourselves. Read more about Jack...
