The month of October marks the 10th year The Trippe Gallery has held its door open to exhibit A-list contemporary artists-from oils, watercolors, etchings, fine art photography, printmaking and mixed media of American Impressionism, Botanicals, Plein Air painting and Abstract Art. There is sculpture in bronze, porcelain and bonded marble. It is known as Easton’s liveliest gallery with a spectrum of openings and special events. “ My goal was to have a gallery where the art appealed to all tastes by exhibiting different media as well as a comfortable venue for the beginning collector to the seasoned one,” says gallery owner Nanny Trippe.
The Trippe Gallery is home to over 40 artists from around the globe-from Easton to California to Canada to Norway. Fresh works are rotated on a monthly basis with a different themed or featured artist each month. Recently on exhibit has been a show titled “Variations 2.0: 1 Photograph 16 Paintings”. Conceived the previous year to great acclaim, fine art photographer and gallery owner Nanny Trippe submits one of her photographs to gallery artists competing in Plein Air Easton-the most prestigious plein air painting competition in the country- and sixteen of those artists accepted the call to paint a variation of the photograph-no rules, paint as inspired.
Throughout October, the gallery will be featuring works based on a theme of “10” to commemorate the anniversary. Work can be of 10 subjects or can simply be sized 10×10. Trippe herself plans to exhibit a “Best of the Last 10”-a fine art photograph chosen from each of the past 10 years.
A special reception will be held during Easton’s First Friday Gallery Walk on October 6 from 5-8 pm. Please stop by for a glass of champagne and a piece of cake! The Trippe Gallery is located at 23 N Harrison St in the heart of historic Easton. For more information please call 410-310-8727 or visit thetrippegallery.com
