JOHN POTOTSCHNIK FINE ART

New Show, New Works

Posted on

I am pleased to announce that Highlands Art Gallery in Lambertville, NJ will be hosting my first show with them beginning on 19 October. The show will run through 23 November. The two-person show featuring Elizabeth Robbins and I is the brainchild of gallery owner, Cheryl Macdowall. “He Said, She Said” expresses the unique differences between Elizabeth and I. She’s female, I’m male. She has long hair, mine is receding (to say the least). She is young and cute, I am older, wrinkled, and graying. She primarily paints flowers, I paint landscapes. She paints rapidly with little preliminary drawing, I paint slowly with careful preliminary drawing. She gets right into color, I generally begin carefully with a monochromatic block-in. She uses an extensive palette of colors, I most often use a limited palette of just three primaries. She has her opinions, I have mine. It should make for an interesting show.

Here are new paintings I’ve done specifically for the show. Other works of mine will also be available. I had to photograph the images, so they’re not quite up to the quality of my usual photographer, who has been ill. But, they’re pretty close to the originals.

“Road Trip” – 30″ x 30″ – Oil – $9100.00

“Farm Yard” (Study) – 5.75″ x 9.38″ – Oil – $950.00
