Remembering Gene Gladston

Eugene Gladston, known to everyone as Gene, was born in The Bronx, New York in 1928. An artist, businessman, avid birder, theatre and opera aficionado, conservationist, community supporter and well-loved New Hope resident, Gene lived in New York City until 1993 when he moved to Bucks County with his wife, photographer Wendy Gladston. Impassioned by art at an early age, Gene was a friend to New Hope Arts from its inception, and was presented in several shows by Robin Larsen. He created the Artist Circle exhibition group that showed in the gallery in 2013.

The Sculpture Project is still free accessible and walkable in an appropriate social distancing way! Great for cycling too since there are over 2 square miles of distance between our 20 installations along roadways and paths from the Borough of New Hope into Solebury.

The Outdoor Sculpture Project is featured among Sculpture Parks in the June issue of Sculpture Magazine

Jack Rosen - Photographer

New Hope, PA photographer Jack Rosen (1923 - 2006) is considered by many to be one of the best "unknown" photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. Acclaimed primarily for his photos of New Hope and Bucks County, PA, Jack also was an outstanding photographer of celebrities, and his humorous yet telling editorial photos reveal his sense of justice, while appealing to our higher sense of ourselves. Read more about Jack...
