Perry Burns

"I am an abstract painter and photographer who finds inspiration from the traditions of both Abstract Expressionism and Islamic Art."

Don Christensen

"Artmaking for me is a very intuitive activity. I feel that I’ve been given the gift of a certain kind of creativity that causes me to experience many things in ways that are maybe unique and/or intense. The composition, color, and drawing that are integral to my work are usually a representation of something I’ve seen before in our world or in my dreams."

Denise Gale

"I have been having a love affair with paint for years. My work is layered with pigment and color. The gesture is an extension of my truer side. Abstraction and wordlessness is where my work exists."

.

"Love Me" by Denise Gale. Oil on canvas. Courtesy of the artist.

.

Barbara Groot

The energy of the sun and light of the East End landscape has charged and influenced my work. My ongoing desire is to reinvent the immediacy of the ever-changing moments in the natural world. Energy and surprise hold a special lure for me – my intention is to convey this and illicit the same response in the viewer.

"On the Edge" by Barbara Groot. Acrylic on Canvas. Courtesy of the artist.

.

Elaine Grove

"It is my belief and philosophy that art can elevate the human spirit and bring about a connection to nature and to inner peace. We that now more than ever. My sculpture comes from a classic constructionist tradition. I incorporate ‘found objects’ in my work with the intention that the original purpose of such objects be forgotten and read rather as a part of the overall sculptural piece. I have also recently begun to paint abstract nature studies on wall-mounted metal platforms."

.

"Lean To 22" by Elaine Grove. Steel, cast iron. Courtesy of the artist.

.

John Haubrich

"Through painting I can articulate emotional responses to my life in a physical world. Abstraction allows me the opportunity to create landscape that is a physical, rational response to external and internal experiences."

.

"Carnival" by John Haubrich. Image Transfer and Oil on Canvas. Courtesy of the artist.

.

Janet Jennings

"Painting from memory and imagination my luminous oil and watercolor paintings are inspired by natural events and landscapes. Driven by emotion the central tension in much of the work lies in the play between dark and light, whether that be in explorations with color and abstraction or in large-scale landscape paintings. Weather plays a powerful and unpredictable role in these works."

.

"Sag Storm" by Janet Jennings. Oil on canvas. Courtesy of the artist.

.

Dennis Leri

"I create large and small steel sculptures that are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation. My work is strongly influenced by that of Calder, Lassaw and Picasso. Shape, form and negative space and balance are the central elements of each piece. Emotion is communicated through the application of color."

.

"Pure Form #5" by Dennis Leri. Painted Steel, Metal. Courtesy of the artist.

.

Jane Martin

"Painting is an act of faith."

.

"Phoenix I" by Jane Martin. Oil, Mixed Media on Canvas. Courtesy of the artist.

Athos Zacharias

"I create beautiful accidents and then I work on them."
