Well, my 2-person exhibition wrapped up last weekend at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.  But the art goes on!  This month, I have four paintings hanging:  Change Over Time, Passages, Center of Narrative Gravity #6, and Emergent Materialism #1. This month, Michael Schweigart and Norine Kevolic are featured at the gallery in Meditations on Nature, […]

September is traditionally the start of the new art season and this month I’ll have two new paintings up (along with three older ones) at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ. The Explanatory Gap is a tough one to capture in a photograph: what you see will vary depending upon the lighting and the angle with […]

This month I have just one painting on display at Artists’ Gallery, but it’s a favorite one that I haven’t exhibited in quite some time: This month’s exhibition is up through August 1, 2010, and the opening reception for the featured artists (Carol Sanzalone and Alla Podolsky) is this Saturday, July 10, from 4-7 pm.  […]

The painting Change Over Time consists of approximately a dozen layers of marks interspersed with a dozen layers of thinly tinted glaze, creating both physical and optical depth.  The glazing layers contain a mixture of charcoal and “interference” pigments, so that the painting appears to have both coarse texture as well as a very smooth, […]

This month at Artists’ Gallery I’m exhibiting six paintings, including these two “corner canvases”.  The canvas is beveled so that the painting hangs snugly in corners (they also can be hung flat against the wall).  This show is up through July 4, 2010, and the gallery’s hours are Fri-Sat-Sun from 11am-6pm (18 Bridge St, Lambertville, […]

Late last year I finished this painting, Time’s Texture, which is now on display at Artists’ Gallery in my 2-person show with Charles Katzenbach.  The show is up through May 2 and the gallery is open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11am-6pm, or by appointment.  I’ll be at the gallery this Saturday, April 17, […]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Paintings by Charles Katzenbach and Andrew Werth Art Exhibit:  April 9 – May 2, 2010 Opening Reception:  Saturday, April 10, 2010, 6-9pm Lambertville, NJ, March 11, 2010 – Reflections, an exhibition of colorful, eye-catching abstract paintings by Charles Katzenbach and Andrew Werth, will be on display at Artists’ Gallery from Friday, April […]

One month from today is the opening reception for Reflections, my next two-person show with Charles Katzenbach at Artists’ Gallery.  The show runs from April 9 through May 2 with the reception on Saturday, April 10, from 6-9pm.  Artists’ Gallery is now located at 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ 08530. I recently finished this painting, […]

I’ve recently been reading Arguing About Art: Contemporary Philosophical Debates and one of the first essays (about whether food can be art — do not read late at night on an empty stomach!) mentions how philosophers can discuss the ontological status of a work of art (what kind of thing it is), and in particular […]

On Tuesday night I finished hanging the paintings for my half of the upcoming two-person featured show (with Marc Reed), Internal/External.  Whew!  The exhibition starts tomorrow, Friday, September 11, and runs through Sunday, October 4.  The opening reception is on Saturday, September 12, from 4-7pm, and I hope to see lots of you there! Artists’ […]

I recently finished this painting, entitled Multiple Drafts (acrylic on corner canvas, 24 x 12 inches).  The title refers to a theory of consciousness by Daniel Dennett.  Although it’s hard to tell in the online image, this piece consists of perhaps a dozen layers of marks each separated by a thin, glossy glaze layer.  Some […]

I recently finished this painting, Nebulous (acrylic on panel, 24×24 inches), and hope to exhibit it at Artists’ Gallery in July.  It’s difficult to capture the look of this piece in the online image as the painting is comprised of approximately a dozen layers of paint with lightly tinted glazes providing physical separation and depth […]

For the June show at Artists’ Gallery, I’ll be exhibiting five small paintings, including this new one entitled Conscious Conscience: I’ve painted this image using a slightly different process than in most of my other paintings, though the difference will be hard to see in a reproduction.  This piece contains many layers of glazing to […]

I recently finished a painting I’m calling “Secondary Process”.  Enjoy!  The term “secondary process” is a Freudian term, with many sort of confusing definitions on the Internet, though I like this one.  In this case, I’m using it to refer to the use of secondary colors (along with optical primaries) in a structured way within […]

This Sunday is the opening reception for the March group show at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville  (32 Coryell St, Lambertville, NJ).  Unlike most previous openings, this one takes place on a Sunday afternoon, from 2-6pm. This month’s theme is Madness, “an exhibition exploring chaos, passion, and general craziness,” mostly not related to basketball. I’m exhibiting […]

I’ve just finished a new painting entitled, “Entanglement” (acrylic on canvas, 36″x36″, 2008): It’s a little bit tough to capture this painting accurately on screen, as I’m using some paints that look different depending upon the light and the viewing angle.  Specifically, the underpainting includes a copper metallic paint that at some angles is a […]
