Antique Bronze Lamps by Auguste Rodin

Pair of Beautiful Antique Bronze Lamps.

1850’s renound French artist Auguste Rodin, (1840-1917) & considered the progenitor of modern sculpture. These sculpture candelabra lamps are forged & marked by French Foundry F. Barbedienne.

Rodin’s most original work departed from traditional themes of mythology and allegory, modeled the human body with realism, and celebrated individual character and physicality.

Rodin became the preeminent French sculptor of his time. By 1900, he was a world-renowned artist. Wealthy private clients sought Rodin’s work after his World’s Fair exhibit, and he kept company with a variety of high-profile intellectuals and artists. His students included Antoine Bourdelle, Camille Claudel, Constantin Brâncu?i, and Charles Despiau. He married his lifelong companion, Rose Beuret, in the last year of both their lives.

Rodin remains to be one of the prominent sculptors of our time.

These lamps will turn any room alive.

ART RECEPTION PARTY 12/01/18

Gary Giordano Lambertville Artist

Come celebrate Gary’s Art Reception in his new home on the main 3rd floor of the People’s Store.  Gary is also part of Brooklyn’s Bushwick Arts Community.

In his most recent series of paintings Lorraine is the subject or figure, but the ideas of abstract painting and contemporary painting supersede the image. Color, texture, line, space, surface or plane. Line is used to create rhythm or movement sometimes to divide space.  Color often creates form; texture creates color or another element across the surface which can be viewed from the side.

 “Artist Talk” Hosted by Gallery Gary Giordano 09/23/18

Sunday September 23, 11:00am

 “Artist Talk” Hosted by Gallery Gary Giordano

Open to the public

3rd floor of the People’s Store

Everyone is welcome to join a good conversation, discussion, debate.

Lots of things to talk about!

How do you define yourself as an artist? What experiences (educational and/or career and/or personal) have been formative in shaping you as an artist? EX: Do you have an art degree? Are you self-taught? Etc.

What is your motivation or motivations for making work? Do you make work with the hope of earning gallery representation? If so, where? What galleries? Is your motivation to make work sales driven? Do you make work that you think/feel does NOT work within the normal constructs of the traditional gallery model? Why do you feel this way? What options have you explored as possible outlets for your work beyond this traditional gallery model? Which have worked? Which have not?

What do you feel is the ideal venue or platform for viewing your work? What influences this decision? Do you feel that the viewing context (traditional gallery versus non-traditional setting) of art alters how the work is received/perceived and ultimately valued by the public? Do you see shifts in the manner in which art is exhibited? What are these shifts or examples of these shifts? (apartment style galleries being one of the many………………)
