On the first floor of the main hotel building, 401 Broad Street, the center hallway features the work of local artists. The exhibit is open to the public from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm and most of the work is available for sale.
The current exhibit of landscape paintings is by Peter Fiore. Peter is an American landscape painter who is best known for painting light, his striking use of color and his exploration of the implied narrative.
He has won a number of awards, including first place for landscape in the Art Renewal Center’s Annual Salon as well as receiving a Grand Prize in the America China Oil Painters Artist League (ACOPAL) Open Competition. He has been featured in an assortment of publications including Fine Art Connoisseuras an “Artist to Watch”. His paintings are in many private and corporate collections.
Peter has also been on the faculty at Pratt Institute, Syracuse University and presently teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He has given numerous guest lectures and workshops on painting and his work is represented in prestigious galleries across the country. Peter’s studio is along the Delaware River right here in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Jimmy Sheehan, whose work is exclusively featured in the dining areas of 403 Broad Street, next door to the Hotel Fauchère, was born and raised in upstate New York and moved to New York City at the age of 20 to study at the School of Visual Arts. He currently lives in Godeffroy, New York, where he is an art director and designer; he also teaches at the School of Visual Arts. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions over the past decade in New York City and elsewhere. He recently has been the subject of a documentary, Trusting the Struggle produced and directed by Libba Marrian.
Sheehan’s painting combines elements of gestural abstraction, drawing, and iconography in a very personal expression. Simultaneously epic and intimate, his work is infused with references from his personal life as well as aspects of ancient Egyptian and Mayan civilizations. The undefined setting, in a traditional sense, is surpassed by a unique element of a pronounced outline within the figures creating a provoking source of tension. In the vein of Twombly and Basquiat, Sheehan’s lexicon of various signs and marks read on a metaphorical/archetypal level rather than according to any form of traditional iconography.
