“Life as We See It” opens at Artists’ Gallery

“Fantasy” is a watercolor by Gail Bracegirdle.

“Life as We See It,” by Gail Bracegirdle and Alla Podolsky, opens at the Artists’ Gallery, 18 Bridge St., Lambertville, N.J., May 10, with a reception from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, May 12.

“The narrative of our past and present, as we see and interpret it,” is the subject of the new exhibit, on view until June 3.

Bracegirdle, a graduate of Moore College of Art & Design, has focused on watercolors for over 25 years.

“I feel that being an artist means that my job is to record what I see around me” she said. “The subjects evolve with the influence of light, weather, seasons and locations. Looking around my studio as I’m working is like reading my diary.”

Alla Podolsky’s work lends itself to interpretive narrative. “I paint events, as I experienced them, as I remember them, as I process them,” she said. “Sometimes it’s a direct interpretation and other times it’s distorted and impacted by my feelings and memories.”

Born and raised in Kiev, Ukraine, Podolsky is a graduate of Moore College of Art and Design, and holds a master’s degree in painting from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.
