A COLLECTION OF LINES review: Lehigh Valley Live
Thanks to Connor Lagore, entertainment and features reporter for Lehigh Valley Live, for his review of the exhibition:
“The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has 15 different definitions for the word ‘line’ as a noun. There are 11 more ways one could use the word as a verb.But the dictionary is too stringent, too limiting. There are so many more ways to interpret a line….”

Brick + Mortar is pleased to announce Colleen Gutwein O’Neal as it’s new Gallery Director.
Colleen comes to Brick + Mortar with more than 10 years of experience as an independent curator in the Northeast Metropolitan region. Working predominantly with emerging and mid career artists on exhibitions ranging from non-objective paintings to socio-conceptual projects.
O’Neal, brings a wealth of knowledge as an artist and educator. She recently completed a 5 year photo-documentary, The Newark Artists Photo Documentary Project, through a long-term residency at Index Art Center, is an adjunct professor of photography at Rutgers University Newark, and serves as a Community Partner at Large to Shine Portrait Studio in Express Newark. Colleen is in a unique position to propel Brick + Mortar Gallery into the contemporary conversation on an international stage while at the same time implementing a structure that will embrace and strengthen the local arts community.
“I’m very excited to bring Colleen onboard as Director of Brick + Mortar Gallery as we enter into our fourth year of operations” says Brick + Mortar Gallery and Design Studio owner, Chaz Hampton. “Colleen brings a wealth of experience, a broad network of artists and collaborators, a fresh vision, and a shared ambition to take Brick + Mortar Gallery to the next level.”
Colleen and her husband Joseph O’Neal, himself an artist with an extensive domestic and international exhibition history, purchased a home in Easton’s West Ward in 2016. The couple discovered the City of Easton through their close friend and colleague Joe Strasser, while visiting his solo exhibition 50 Years of Bad Behavior at Brick + Mortar’s previous location on Centre Square.
