Husband and wife art exhibition at Frenchtown gallery

“Belfast Waterfront” is an oil painting by John Schmidtberger.

The husband and wife team of John Schmidtberger and Corinne Lalin are showing their artwork at SFA Gallery, 10 Bridge St., Suite 7, Frenchtown, N.J., this month.

“Two Views: New Work from Maine and Pennsylvania” runs through Oct. 1, with an opening reception planned for 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday Sept. 16.

The event is free and open to the public.

Lalin is displaying work made with a broad range of media, including encaustic (a wax-based studio medium), plein air oil pastel and oil painting, and mixed media.

Schmidtberger is showing oil paintings from this year’s Bucks County Plein Air Festival, a series of small studies painted on the Milford/Upper Black Eddy Bridge, and an extended series of landscapes and architectural subjects from Maine.

For the first time in many years, they were able to paint plein-air style together during two extended trips to Maine. This show provides a unique opportunity to showcase their different sensibilities when working from the same subject matter.

“Two Views” coincides with SFA Gallery’s sixth year in business and the couple’s 29th wedding anniversary.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Visit online for information.
