"A Sculpture of color and form using thick impasto paint against thin layers to create mood and capture a single slice ot time. A painter with a poets heart." Patricia is a member of OPA Oil Painters of America, and the American Impressionist Society.
Rocko & Guido/Pastel
"I create as an expression of my excitement and appreciation for the beauty and preciousness of life." Kay Ridge's background is in oil, but she prefers the texture and versatility of pastel applied to various surfaces including acrylic and water color under paintings. Sensitivity, inspiration and drama are personified in her works of art.
Kay is a Signature Member of Excellence with the Southeastern Pastel Society.
An avid collector of fish art, I formed a plan to make a fish using materials that were being discarded. I envisioned scaling the fish using aluminum cans. The first fish was a labor of love, taking over 8 hours to complete, with each scale hand drawn and cut.
Debra Nadelhoffer's paintings reflect an emotional response to her subject. Attracted by effects of light and atmosphere, she attempts to convey her impressions through the use of color and close attention to the play of light on surfaces. Her subject matter is varied, as she is equally fascinated with landscape, still life and the figure.
Debra has been awarded an Artist in Residence for
Acadia National Park for the fall of 2012.
Mary Pratt Bird Tryptich in Oil
Mary Pratt is an Atlanta-based artist who utilizes color and contrast to evoke emotions while provoking thought, both visually and conceptually. Her brush strokes are bold; her sense of color is magical. Mary arrives conceptually through ardent research of pertinent subject matter considering the work’s final environment. She determines color and aesthetics intuitively. The journey from her mind’s eye to the soul’s window could describe her process. Mary establishes an idea and creates an edge or an angle that perhaps the viewer may not have considered. It is important to her that the viewer’s emotional response is enhanced and that one may find through observance of the piece, an alternative way of understanding the subject matter.
Bonnie Montgomery Woven Rug
Weaving is the way I express my self.
I use bold statements of color and subtle interplay of patterns to intrigue the eye.
I use the pleasant comfort of rich fabrics to relax the senses.
I use the functionality and durability of my weavings to reassure the practical.
Look at them on the wall or feel them on the floor. My rugs provide pleasure and warmth to your life.
