John Spears - Illusions of Light  -  January 23 - March 21, 2021

John Spears opens New Hope Arts exhibition year with an in-gallery exhibition designed to explore space and illusion, when architecture and art work together. The eighteen canvases curated by Rita Romanova Gekht, arranged as viewer-centered experience, illuminate Spear’s method developed over his forty-five-year career. Large scale images delight using both UV and LED light to reveal the vast array of colors and textures unseen in natural light.

Protocol limits ten people at a time so viewers have the opportunity to interact with each piece while maintaining social distance. Reservations are suggested.

New Hope Arts Outdoor Sculpture Project

Is a cultural and recreational asset in these times when appropriate social distancing is practiced.

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.

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...
