Local Business Spotlight: Gallery Piquel

Once art is introduced to a space, it is forever a part of that space.  Its energy fills the very crevices between the floorboards and embraces you as you enter the door.   Luckily for Gallery Piquel, both locations are rooted deep with art and creativity.

Tamara and Jim Canon, the owners of Gallery Piquel, could have lived anywhere.  The couple lived in New York City for numerous years and traveled the world as producers, performers, and photographers.  But once they had visited Bucks County, they knew that this is where the next chapter of their lives would be realized.

It’s hard to believe Gallery Piquel only opened 11-years ago.  The Canon’s seamlessly transitioned themselves and the artists they represented by taking over cherished artist studios and galleries: Al Lachman’s space in New Hope and Hrefna Jonsdottir’s gallery in Lambertville.

“We moved to this area specifically for the natural beauty and for the community”, Tamara told me. “I’m honored that we were able to move into two spaces that I respect so much. They both are beloved by the community and we want to nurture that.”

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
