Jane Lawton Baldridge is a sea level girl. Her passion is water. She paints abstract sea stories. She wants her viewers to fall in love with oceans and seas as she has. Her work is moving and calming.

Mallo Bisset paints from the heart. Whether it is her beloved cats, favorite beach scenes or birds that waded across her path she embraces them with her oil paints and palette knives.

James DeMartis was a painter of the post World War Two generation who explored a wide variety of styles and media. He was a New York City Abstract Expressionist. He studied Mid-century California art styles, Hudson Valley styles, Asian art and attended the Accademia di Belle Arti di Firenze. He painted believing, “color and texture convey meaning.”

Dot Galfond tells of her journey: “My interest in glass began as a child sitting in church, when I became fascinated watching the sunbeams dance through the stained glass windows, as their beautiful colors played on the pews and floor. Many years later, I’m still transfixed by light shining through glass, which explains why transparent glass is so prevalent throughout most of my artwork.”

Torenzo Gann’s art comes from an upwelling of ideas triggered by everything . . . “I see art everywhere. On sidewalks, reflections in storefront windows, shadow designs falling on the ground or embracing a building. I see clouds as moving sculptures.”
