NED O. WERT a post abstract expressionist, began his career in the late 1950's with realistic work in watercolor. Metaphorically speaking, the baby wasn't tossed out with the bath water, rather the underlying representational roots are alive, despite the deliberate process of deconstruction. "If I tell the whole story," he says, "I leave out any opportunity for interpretation, and I believe art must be a vehicle to communicate." Rich in his characteristic color and gestural discovery, Wert's latest collection of mostly smaller works address the challenge of working in a different scale, and in some cases, are references to earlier works. "My real intent with this collection was to reflect some of my favorite influences of the past - ethnic cultures, landscapes and nature, celebrations, and the freedom and spirit of youth."

TODD LEHMAN, Ned Wert, and Barrie Spessler were all schoolmates in Millersburg, Pennsylvania, before launching in to their independent art careers years ago. The three will meet again at the Lancaster Arts Hotel on First Friday, October 3rd, where Lehman's work will be featured in John J. Jeffries Restaurant, adjacent to the hotel lobby. Join them at 4:00 for the Happy Hour Meet and Greet, then enjoy the Artist's Reception starting at 5:00 to the sounds of Spessler's professional jazz duo. Wert's work will remain on display in the gallery through November, and Lehman will be featured in Jeffries through February.

"Wert's abstract paintings are a refreshing dive into every inch of the color wheel and the result for other color junkies is downright intoxicating."
