Ewing Features Travel & Nature Photographer Who Opens Doorways to Locations Near & Far

Release date: 8/24/2017

Ewing Featured Artist of the Month Display at Town Hall

Exotic locations, beautiful bridges, charming flowers, and unique doorways will be on display at the Ewing Township Municipal Building thanks to the Ewing Arts Commission and Art Has No Boundaries featured artist program which will be showcasing the nature and travel photography of Ewing resident Anne Gale in September.

 “You are immersed in a new place and culture, or you see an image from a different perspective in Ms. Gale’s work” said Art Commission member Lauren Weber. “She truly has an artistic eye for the wonders of nature, and charm of things made from the human hand.”  

 About Anne Gale

Gale first became interested in photography in her college years, in large part because of an eight week road trip out west with her friends.   Anne made her way to California and back, zig-zagging across the west along the way.

”I didn’t want to have just great memories, I wanted quality photos to go along with those memories. Photos other people might want to see also.”  she explains.

 Unfortunately, upon returning from her trip, she realized the camera she had been using was not the best quality and she was disappointed to see the results of the photographs of all the places.   Her interest in photography was sparked.

Ms. Gale is a local resident of Ewing and has lived here most of her life. She graduated from Ewing High School and Rider College.   She worked for Education Testing Service (ETS) for over 35 years. During that time, she honed her photography skills by taking classes, buying a better camera (a Nikon), and photographing rural parts of the State around her. 

Her photographic ‘sandbox’ got larger when she retired about eight years ago.  She’s used her time well - traveling and photographing the world – now with a much better camera.  Gale has photographed scenes from the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, and Baltic countries. Her photographs on display at town hall include shots from Morocco, Croatia, Italy, France, Sweden, and Scandinavia, to name but a few countries.  She began sharing her work with others a friendly neighbor here in Ewing asked her to come by and have a “pizza and pics night because the only way I will get to see the world is through your photos.” During the event her neighbors and sister encouraged her to start showing and selling her work. Anne hit the ground running, selling work to local businesses.

“Her work will make you wonder, who lives in that Tuscan kitchen or who has grown up behind that almost unhinged doorway?” Ms. Weber stated, “She has a keen sense to capture these moments in time and lead the viewer to appreciate nature or yearn to travel.”

Gale has also partnered with Doylestown artist, April Bohmler, who has traveled with her and works in pastel and paint mediums. The two women artists will be joining forces to show their work on different perspective of their travel together. That exhibit, “Travel Perspectives: The Way They saw Morocco,” will be opening this October 13th for four weeks at April Ann’s Art Shop in Wrightstown, PA. Additionally, Anne and April have a travel-themed gallery display in the books for this coming June 2018 at A Space Gallery located in New Hope Art Center, PA.

Gale’s work will be on display at Town Hall until the end of September. For more information about her photography or to purchase a piece contact her at peppermac.anne@gmail.com
