Priscilla Snow Algava and Judith Schermer

Media Title

Forget waiting in those nasty New Year’s sale lines at the mall for something cheap and regrettable. Instead, take a quick trip down to Old City this week for some fresh and locally made paintings, prints and drawings. The year’s first exhibition at Third Street Gallery will feature the work of two of its longstanding members, both known for their unique breadth of colorful and inspired paintings. For Matriarchs and Sages, Priscilla Snow Algava will bring out her finest drawings, pastels, watercolor paintings and monoprints, and Judith Schermer’s Theme and Variations will highlight her meticulous, nearly-photo-realistic landscapes and cityscapes. Their joint show opens Thursday at Third Street Gallery—which hosts the first of two January receptions tomorrow at 5pm —and runs through Sun., Feb. 2.

An art specialist at South Brunswick High School in New Jersey, Algava has been a faculty member at several universities, museums and institutions in the U.S. and abroad. She says her work is inspired by her need to “cultivate a spirit of play, experimentation, joy, reverence and compassion.” Schermer has been a favorite at Third Street for years; her soft acrylic landscapes are like those momentary glimpses you catch while walking aimlessly, when all the shapes and plant life around you line up and reveal a perfect balance.

In addition to the First Friday launch party, the gallery will also hold an artists’ reception for the ladies’ joint exhibit on Sun., Jan. 19. / SEAN CORBETT

Noon. Free. Third Street Gallery, 58 N. Second St. 215.625.0993. 3rdstreetgallery.com
