“Reflections of Summer” is the August theme for the ARTery Gallery exhibit, featuring two local artists, Madeline Tully and Reggie Cheong-Leen. Tully uses loose, soft, transparent application of oil paint in her landscape, floral and portrait paintings. She is also known for her watercolors. Tully succeeds in making watercolors the visual equal of oil paintings and vice versa, transmuting the qualities of each.
She studied art in New York City at Forest Park School of Art, Jackson Heights Art School, Rego Park Art Studio and St. John’s College. She is a longstanding member of Pike County Arts and Crafts and a member of the ARTery Cooperative since its beginning in 1996. Over the years, Tully has attracted many followers and collectors, as her style has become instantly recognizable.
While pursuing a career in New York City, Reggie Cheong-Leen found little time or space to pursue his infatuation with surrealism—a passion since his teen years. Now, since relocating to Milford in 2001, he paints regularly, inspired by scenes in our area, centered around water. He’s particularly attracted to the Delaware River’s seasonal color changes, often including surrealistic elements. in his landscapes. A long-time supporter and friend of the gallery the membership celebrates his first featured exhibit there.
The ARTery Gallery, located in the historic Forest Hall, has been a cooperatively owned and operated fine art gallery since 1996. The gallery features a wide array of artistic talent, ranging from traditional oil, watercolor, and photography to sculpture, jewelry, textiles, pottery, and collage.
