J.M. Stringer Gallery was pleased to return to the Jacobus Vanderveer House & Museum for our fourth annual pop-up exhibition featuring the contemporary American master, John Phillip Osborne (b. 1951).

March 14 - April 6, 2019
J.M. Stringer Gallery presented "Spontaneity in Nature," featuring Joseph Sundwall and George Van Hook. Both Sundwall and Van Hook have found their muse in nature. Responding directly to their environment - whether that be landscape, figure, or still life - their work is fresh, spontaneous, and painterly. However, firm drawing techniques underpin each of their paintings, revealing their fine academic training and influence of European tradition. "The paintings are a marriage of external and internal forces,” says Van Hook. “What emerges on the canvas should be a reflection of both the beauty of the world and the artist’s most inner response.”
The Gallery was excited to collaborate with Cooper & Co. for a very special artist demonstration during the opening reception. Both artists are accomplished portrait painters and adept at capturing figures within their environment. In “Fashion & Form,” a compelling take on the standard artist demonstration, the gallery transformed into an elegant runway for models and dresses provided by Cooper & Co. — creating vibrant vignettes for these two award-winning artists to capture.
February 14 - March 9, 2019
J.M. Stringer Gallery was honored to present "Essential Gestures," featuring André Lucero and Richard Oversmith. These two painters rely on brushstrokes, marks, and gestures to conceptualize and compose their works. While both Lucero and Oversmith have traditional academic training, plein air painting - surrounded by the natural elements - has guided their direction as artists. The styles they’ve developed are highly personal and vary considerably from one another, but each painter allows the subject to sing - capturing its essence with elegant and deft movements of the brush. Each gesture is essential, provoking the viewer to interact.
January 10 - February 9, 2019
J.M. Stringer Gallery was thrilled to present "Awake: The Beautiful Adventure of Life," featuring Jim McVicker and Luke Steadman. While hailing from opposite coasts, both McVicker and Steadman have described painting as an “awakening," a practice through which they learned to truly see the world. With exquisite attention to capturing light, atmosphere, and space, this collection of work is quiet, sensitive, and serene -- inviting the viewer to contemplate the sensory "adventure underlying the routine of daily life" and the "beauty all around us."
November 29, 2018 - January 5, 2019

Pop-Up Exhibition Hosted at Jacobus Vanderveer House & Museum, 3055 River Road, Bedminster, NJ 07921
J.M. Stringer Gallery was pleased to return to the Jacobus Vanderveer House & Museum for our third annual pop-up exhibition featuring the contemporary American master, John Phillip Osborne (b. 1951). This two-weekend show and sale was a curated selection of Osborne's newest work, which focused on exploring and reimagining the thirteen original American colonies.
Hosted at Drexel Hamilton, 77 Water Street, Suite 201, New York, NY 10005
J.M. Stringer Gallery was pleased to present the Revolutionary War paintings of John Phillip Osborne (b. 1951) in this special exhibition at Drexel Hamilton. John Osborne is an internationally renowned painter who has won numerous awards for his landscape, figurative, and still life paintings. His works are collected by private individuals, museums, and corporations. Osborne is an avid student of history, particularly the American Revolution. Many encampments and significant battles took place within a small radius of his home in northern New Jersey. Spending time at these locations, Osborne drew on his knowledge of historical events to reimagine on canvas what occurred in these hallowed places. Osborne’s love of the ordinary citizen soldiers and the great Generals of the War reflect his respect and appreciation for all those who risk their lives in service to this country. Therefore, he was honored to display these special works of art at Drexel Hamilton, a full-service institutional broker-dealer founded on the principle of offering meaningful employment opportunities to disabled veterans.
This exhibition was a new consideration of the importance of the Revolutionary War, in which the primary focus is the ultimate achievement of an enlightened body of men with a united single cause. Recognition has come to Osborne through an unusual ability to depict the subject in a way that is close to nature. Thus, his initial attraction to the American Revolution was born. At what other time was our nation’s future so reliant upon yet at the mercy of our natural world? The landscapes they marched through still surround us today, the murmur of their footsteps still echo. Osborne captures these transcendental moments with a fine art background, academically trained eye, and historical accuracy – but above all, with unrivaled passion.
March 15 - April 7, 2018
A solo exhibition featuring the recent paintings of Jim Rodgers.
From lush landscapes to intimate genre scenes to sophisticated still lifes, Rodgers' work can be likened to jazz - distinctively rich in tone and color, coupled with a mastery of his medium that allows his style to become deftly improvisational. Thus, at once both skillfully crafted and passionately charismatic. More than 30 years of professional study, including traditional and American impressionistic training, has been augmented by his wanderlust. Recent journeys which inspired this collection include Washington DC, Newport, New York City, and Ireland.
February 15 - March 10, 2018
J.M. Stringer Gallery was pleased to present a dual exhibition featuring the recent paintings of award-winning artists Edward Noott and Claudia Seymour. The work of both Noott and Seymour is traditional but with a taste of the modern. Focusing on the infinite beauty of color and the interaction between light and scene, they create heightened luster, texture, and dimensional space. Light becomes a solid presence within their pieces. Seymour creates intimate still lifes in oil and pastel, while Noott’s grand vistas are solely in oil. Together, they portrayed the joy of life.
January 11 - February 10, 2018
J.M. Stringer Gallery was pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring the recent paintings of Leonard Mizerek, FASMA. The collection the Gallery curated for this exhibition was particularly exciting, as it featured not only Mizerek’s sought-after land and seascapes, but also his new venture into figurative work.

April 6 - Summer 2017
A solo exhibition featuring the recent paintings of John Phillip Osborne.
Osborne graduated Cum Laude from the Pratt Institute in New York with a degree in fine arts and recently retired after 34 years as senior instructor at the Ridgewood Art Institute in New Jersey. Osborne’s work captures “a small moment in nature; a feeling of coming just a little closer to the grand scheme of things.” Working in oil as well as pen and ink, his oeuvre is both technically superior and aesthetically engaging, and has been a "lifelong study of the infinite effects of light that nature has to offer.”
Known for his handling of light and attention to atmospheric effects, Osborne's oil paintings are works of tonality and subtlety that evoke an emotional rather than tangible remembrance. He currently resides in Ringwood, New Jersey and has built a career around painting the natural landscape of the Hudson Valley and becoming a preeminent artist of historical subjects. However, the artist's recent travels to Belgium and Vero Beach provided new sources of historical and visual inspiration.
March 16 - Summer 2017
A two-man exhibition featuring the recent paintings of Jim McVicker and George Van Hook.
McVicker hails from Humboldt County in northern California. Painting from life, in both his studio and outdoors, his impressionistic oeuvre contains landscapes, still lifes, and figure paintings that capture the quiet moments of sensitivity and beauty all around us. This is McVicker’s first two-man exhibition with the gallery. Originally inspired by the Pennsylvania Impressionists, Van Hook’s paintings are a marriage of external and internal forces - the moments that emerge on canvas reflect both the beauty of the world and the artist’s innermost response. He currently resides in Cambridge, New York.
May 13-14 & 20-21, 2017
J.M. Stringer Gallery was proud to host its second pop-up exhibition at the Jacobus Vanderveer House & Museum in Bedminster, New Jersey, featuring the recent work of John Phillip Osborne.
Born in 1951 in northern New Jersey, Osborne still resides there today having built a career around painting the natural landscape of the Hudson Valley and becoming a preeminent artist of Revolutionary subjects. Known for his handling of light and attention to atmospheric effects, his oil paintings are works of tonality and subtlety that evoke an emotional rather than tangible remembrance. Also working in ink and chalk, his drawings are both technically superior and aesthetically engaging.
February 16 - March 11, 2017
A two-man exhibition, featuring the recent paintings of André Lucero and Richard Oversmith.
After earning a BFA cum laude in 1989, Lucero’s illustrations appeared in prominent national publications, including The New York Times and U.S. News & World Report. Lucero now lives and maintains a studio in Richmond, Virginia, combining his love for the outdoors with his art by painting primarily “en plein air." Thus, his work captures the fleetingly poetic aspects of nature.
After studying at the Royal College of Art in London and painting across the globe, Oversmith now lives and works in North Carolina, a region which has proven to continually evoke the artist’s muse. In a captivating style which blends a contemporary edge with the classicism of the masters, his paintings are his poetic voice, and stroke by stroke he composes a whole that relates his vision.
January 12 - February 11, 2017
A two-man exhibition, featuring the recent paintings of Joseph Sundwall and Luke Steadman.
Sundwall, who studied at the Art Students League and National Academy in New York City, paints in a style called “alla prima” or “direct painting,” in which each area of the painting is accomplished in a single sitting. Thus, his work exhibits a fresh, spontaneous quality and reflects his keen interest in the play of light. Steadman, a signature member of the American Society of Marine Artists and Vero Beach local, has a quiet, contemplative style that is enveloped in atmosphere and mood.
December 3, 2016 - January 7, 2017
