Drawings and Portraits with Watercolors

by Jenny Laden

First Floor Gallery

Jenny was hooked on drawing after her very first life drawing class! She discovered the transparency and clarity of watercolor and sensed that these mediums would expand her possibilities of innovative ways to change the world visually for the better. She plays with ideas of gender, beauty and humor always striving to add intelligence and beauty to ideas that need attention.

Plein Air Oil and Watercolor Paintings

by Margo Tassi

Second Floor Gallery

Margo plunges into plein-air painting because the outdoor environment brings energy into her work. The ocean, woods or even the cut grass smells in the air transition her own breath into energy. She is keenly aware of the elements of change that surround her as she works. The invisible presence of the temperature, seasons, tides and the on-going light changes generate personal excitement, opportunities and surprises into each painting.

Bangles, Cuffs and Pendants

by Barbara Schumer

West Vitrines

Barbara seized the opportunity to be the only student in a summer camp class taught by a famous enamellist and has pursued that goal ever since. Her bangles are the perfect minimal accessories; while her botanical cuffs made from sterling silver and brass make huge statement. In addition, her hand-painted, enamel pendants are fired multiple times, then placed into sterling silver with gold accents bezels.

by Bridget Hughes

East Vitrines

Bridget knew that clay would be her medium but kept herself open to possibilities to find the technique that would be personally satisfying to create and unique to apply.  The possibility that became her trademark is to roll out slabs of clay into shapes and forms then add texture with everything from shoe soles to doilies. At this point, she begins to build the clay pieces into the object she has already envisioned: perfect in form and function.
