Manufactured in Philadelphia: Paintings by Chuck Connelly Artist's Reception: December 1, 6-9pm
Exhibit: December 1-22
Chuck Connelly received international acclaim for his work almost immediately after his graduation from the Tyler School of Art in 1977. After refining his work for two years in Germany, Connelly became one of the top contemporary artists of his time, exhibiting at the leading galleries in New York, including the Annina Nosei, Serra di Felice, and Lennon, Weinberg, as well as in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Rome, and Dusseldorf, West Germany.
His work was highly coveted and was sold into public and private collections across the country and internationally, Connelly himself becoming an icon of the 80’s and 90’s art scene.
His rapid rise to fame was followed by a dramatic and controversial downfall, which was documented in the HBO feature “Art of Failure: Chuck Connelly Not For Sale” in 2008. Since then, Chuck has adamantly continued painting, producing volumes of cutting-edge works against the odds.
Connelly’s vivid life story and dramatic career are matched only by the pure brilliance of his work as an artist. Regardless of his success or failure in the public eye, Connelly has persistently produced remarkable paintings of the quality that earned him such avid acclaim in the early part of his career.
The Chestnut Hill Gallery had the honor of exhibiting Connelly’s works in 2011, in a quartet show including the works of Harry Anderson, Ted Victoria, and Hal Hirshorn, curated by Connelly himself. This month, Connelly will return for a solo show featuring a selection of his works from his personal collection. Bold, dramatic, and emotionally charged, Connelly’s selection exposes the artist’s defined talent and experience, as well as his unfailingly innovative style as he moves forward in his painting career.
Still Life on Purple
Exhibit: The Modern Art Four
Libby Calamia has exhibited across the country, in New York, Pennsylvania, Utah, Indiana, Maryland, and California, and internationally, including England, France, Spain, Canada, and Colombia. A passionate abstract artist and expert in lithography, Calamia has received numerous awards and nominations for his work, which is collected world wide. "Abstract Art directs the artist to intellectually explore beneath the surface of the subject - which alone creates artwork really worth producing." --Libby Calamia
Debs Bleicher has been drawing, sketching, and art making since he was five years old. After receiving his teaching certificate in Art Education and a degree in ceramics from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, he taught in the Philadelphia School District for eight years, while continuing his own artistic education in ceramics, printing, collage, monoprint, and more. Since 2003, he has been taking painting classes and exploring mixed media collage paintings. He describes his method as being "summed up in one word - experiment."
Constance Cone has been working as an artist since 1973. During the first part of her career, she was a fine art photographer using large format cameras, making platinum and palladium prints (two non-silver processes). In the late 80's, she began working in more traditional media, eventually receiving her MFA in painting and printmaking. Her current work, pastels inspired by landscape, is primarily abstract.
Kitty Caparella, a well-known gallery artist who last exhibited at the CHG in 2009, describes her current work as an exploration of "lines found in nature that create shapes and cityscapes that become personalities as they are abstracted. With these new shapes, I can find subtlety, grace, and new meanings. Working in encaustic - hot wax and oil-based paints - allows me to gouge into the wax to create deep and light lines, while different colors express various moods in the shapes that are created."

"The current works presented are inspired by a course of study begun in recent years, being newly introduced to standing in the unknowing, instructed to become comfortable with that. Supplied with tools, directed toward discovery and heedful to the gravity of life and craft, gratitude became a foundation, authenticity a priority. " - Alfred Ortega

The Chestnut Hill Gallery is honored to present the extraordinary botanical works of late Philadelphia artist Tom Steigerwald. Steigerwald (1945-2011), a Philadelphia native, known for his beautiful trompe l'oeil botanical paintings, created his mural-like masterpieces on Masonite, not a square or rectangle canvas, but a series of pieces cut into flowers and leaf forms then painted to give depth, life and movement.
Steigerwald, a Tyler School of Art Graduate taught drawing and anatomy at both Moore College of Art and Drexel University. His works are widely collected and he has exhibited at the Whitney Museum of Art and the Aldrich Art Museum. He has been featured in many publications including the Philadelphia Inquirer. His larger-than-life works, featuring the flowers and plants he loved, will be on display at the Chestnut Hill Gallery from May 5th through the 26th in a show curated by Gallery Director, Joseph Borrelli and Tom's wife, Patrice Steigerwald.

The American Color Print Society
The Spring Members Exhibition
Reception: March 10th, 2012 6 - 8 pm
Exhibit: March 3 - 24
The Chestnut Hill Gallery is proud to present the Annual American Color Print Society Spring Members Exhibition
The American Color Print Society was founded in 1939 in Philadelphia, PA. At that time, the typical print was a black and white etching, with very little chance of a color print passing a jury. In 1940, 85 artist members staged the first National
Color Print Exhibition at the Philadelphia Print Club, now The Print Center. These artists opened printmaking to color and encouraged experimentations which today has become part of American Art tradition: the use of color in lithography, block printing, etching, intaglio, monotype and computer art; and creativity has been further extended to materials and techniques in multiple combinations.
The 74th ACPS annual members' exhibition showcases the member artists from a national perspective, as well as the Philadelphia area; exhibited artwork will arrive from all areas of the United States
The Chestnut Hill Gallery is honored to be hosting the American Color Print Society's Annual Members' Reception once again

with Neal Hughes
November 1st – November 19th
Artist’s Reception Saturday, November 5h | 6-8 pm
Coming up in November! Renowned artist Neal Hughes will be displaying a selection of his incredible work here at the Chestnut Hill Gallery.
"New Jersey artist Neal Hughes uses his considerable artistic skills as an act of celebration and testament, and he is rewarded with inspiration that helps him make creative decisions that elevate his oil landscapes." - M. Stephen Doherty, Editor-in-Chief, American Artist Magazine.
Neal Hughes' paintings are rooted in the American realist tradition as defined by artists such as Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins and Andrew Wyeth. With a traditional approach to composition and technique, his work incorporates contemporary design with a classical sensibility.
Interested in art from an early age, Neal first started painting when he took art lessons in grade school. He went on to graduate from the Philadelphia College of Art (University of the Arts) and his work is included in numerous private and corporate collections. He has also completed major commissions for the Philadelphia 76ers basketball team and The National Civil War Museum.
Neal has won numerous awards, including the Maritime Gallery Yachting Award and an Award of Excellence at the prestigious International Marine Art Exhibition at the Gallery at Mystic Seaport. In addition, he was the grand prize winner of the Utrecht 60th Anniversary Art Competition, winning the top prize out of over 12,000 entries.
Mark your calendars for November 5th! See you there!

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: Friday, November 12, 2010 6:00 – 8:30 P.M.
The Chestnut Hill Gallery, located in the heart of historic Chestnut Hill, is thrilled to present "Parallel Diversity" featuring two regional artists: a post-impressionist landscape artist and a modernist with a fresh palette.
Joseph Skrapits Is an American landscape painter with post-impressionistic tendencies. The Pennsylvania landscape near Skrapits' home in the Lehigh Valley has been and remains his primary source of inspiration. Favorite painting sites include the upper Jordan Valley near Trexler Game Preserve, the farmland of western Lehigh and eastern Berks counties. Skrapits believes that the challenge of painting plein aire (outdoors - in direct contact with his subjects) promotes fresh responses that stimulate creative growth.
Katarzyna Kalyta (Kasia) was born and raised in Poland. She started her art education at a high school of fine arts and went on to receive her master's degree in sculpture under the tutelage of the internationally respected sculptor Antoni Gryt. She has participated in numerous group graphic and painting exhibitions, as well as summer workshops in Italy, Spain, and Greece. Lately Kasia has become interested in the correlations among color, texture and line, a theme that is represented in her most recent works. Both Joseph and Kasia's works are well-collected by our Gallery patrons.

July 10 through July 31 ARTIST’S RECEPTION: Saturday, July 17th, 6-8 PM
The Chestnut Hill Gallery, located in the heart of historic Chestnut Hill, is thrilled to present a summer exhibit featuring two NYC standouts and two rising stars in the Philadelphia area.
Steve Ladner was one of the top fashion photographers and studio owners in New York City in the 70's, 80's and into the 90's. He has photographed fashion, beauty and lifestyle for top magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Town & Country, Esquire, French Vogue, The New York Times, and cosmetic ad campaigns for Revlon, Chanel, Almay, Avon, and others. He also spent 7 years living and working as a fashion photographer in Paris , France . Steve has recently relocated to Philadelphia where he continues to photograph portraits and lifestyles for private and corporate clients, and magazine editorials, both in Philly and NYC. Steve was early on inspired to create digital artwork beyond his commissioned photo assignments. Recently, Steve has begun painting, combining photography and paint in a personal and unique way. It is an organic out-growth of what inspired and informed his photography in the beginning: beauty, color, geometry, imagination, and the unknown. The Chestnut Hill Gallery is proud to represent this body of work.
Gwendolyn Chambers, an award-winning School of Visual Arts graduate, who lives in NYC began her current body of work in 2002 shortly after the purchase of her first car - a 1973 Dodge Dart. Her layered style incorporates symbols or images that tie into the history of the car, location or personality of the person to whom it belongs. The cars take on transcendental personality – levitating and driving away.
Rounding out the exhibit are two local favorites: Anne Buckwalter and Lila Duey – truly the finest of the Tyler BFA program and very popular in the Philadelphia area.

Coming October 13th: "Sideways: a Poets and Artists
Collaboration" - The Chestnut Hill Gallery is thrilled to be
hosting this collaboration of established poets and artists who will
work together in a cooperative, creative effort which will culminate in a
poetry reading, reception and one-week show.
SideWays will run from October 13 – October 20. The public is invited
to the opening reception at 6-10 p.m. on Saturday, October 13. The artists
will be introduced and the poets will read from their works at 7 p.m. The
show includes paintings, photographs, sculpture and poems which have been
written responsively to these works. Each poet was paired with an artist and
wrote responsively to four of his or her works. In so doing, the artist
found new ways of looking at his own work, the poet found compelling images
for his imaginative use, and we hope the audience will find not only two
distinct works of art, but a third, in the complex relationship between the
two. Click here for the entire press release.
