Amy Bartell’s Archeological Memoir pieces are nearly 7 feet tall.  The size coupled with a sensitive handling of the materials becomes a dialogue and an experience in itself.  Amy believes that stories live in the details, bits and pieces revealed over time

 Michael Moody

 

Michael Moody lets his story unfold on the surface of his paintings with no set agenda-- he allows himself to be inspired by the shape and size of the canvas and every mark that has come before.

Diana Godfrey creates a feeling of atmosphere within her artwork as the layers of the piece build up.  Her story comes alive in the viewer's response to color and texture.

Barbara Conte-Gaugel is drawn to things old rusty and ordinary that once had a purpose – it is through giving these items and images new context that she builds a story for the viewer to read and experience.

More Beautiful Artwork You'll See at the Exhibit


Ellen Haffar, The Illusion of Control Ellen Haffar, The Illusion of Control

 

Ellen Haffar

Ellen Haffar’s colorful pastel and acrylic work can aptly be described as Juicy!

Her light on dark mark-making takes on a 3-dimensional feel, enhanced by frames that give the impression you are looking out a window into the world of a divine garden.

Karmin Schafer Hansen, White Shed with Blue and GreenKarmin Schafer Hansen, White Shed with Blue and Green

Karmin Schafer Hansen

Karmin Schafer Hansen shares 5 works from her “White Shed” series in this exhibit.  These other-worldly images take on the feel of a portal or divine object.

The inspiration Karmin had observing white target boards at a target range in Jamesville, NY for these pieces is a testament to the way artists see beauty in the world and translate it for the rest of us to enjoy!  Her appreciation of the way the white boards took on and brought out all the colors around them produced her artistic vision for this wonderful series.

Patricia Elliot Seitz, Northern CAPatricia Elliot Seitz, Northern CA

 

Patricia Elliot Seitz

Patricia Elliot Seitz produces beautiful landscapes of both Central New York and California.  Her work includes a great deal of “knife-work” mixing colors and scraping them artfully onto the canvas to create breathtaking contrasts in her sky and sea scapes.
