Featured Artist Andie Grande

I question the possibility of reconsidering refuse materials beyond usefulness. Because a work of art is, by definition, useless; we’re naturally in a stance of praising matter for its own aesthetic virtues, beyond any tendency toward appropriation...

Featured Artist Joan Gallagher

I used to paint just flowers, but living at the Jersey Shore gave me the ocean and boardwalk, and that has been a constant source of inspiration for me.

Featured Artist Christine O’Brien

My sketches capture the essence and ideas for paintings, and I also make notations on how I might depict the feeling of an ocean breeze, the calming sound of the waves and the carefree life of figures relaxing or frolicking in the sand.

Featured Artist Paige Hirsch

I get into the moment and let my intuition lead the way. I love painting abstracts, mixed-media pieces because the outcome is endless. I am not required to follow any rules or to make something representational.

Featured Artist Sally Walsh

Watercolours are a medium that continue to surprise and delight me, and I’ve found if you embrace “happy mistakes,” then watercolours can be your best friend!

Featured Artist Wendy Ives

The dichotomy in a delicate looking, or transparent fabric, that is strong and able to be washed in a modern washing machine is a thrill to construct.

Featured Artist Ackeem Salmon

Ultimately, I stand strong in my poetic grounds as a fine artist. I always push to get across deep intricate messages, in a unique yet elegant manner, in all the pieces I make.

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, ‘Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.’ I don’t try to control a sunset. … Continue reading →...

Featured Artist Rachid Hanbali

I want you, the viewer, to be able to enter into the scene and breathe the scents of the souk, taste the spices, hear the music of traditional musicians and enter into my universe.

Featured Artist Laurie Leonard

This "reinvention" of my art has been a very rewarding experience. Being completely self taught, the creative process for me is playing with an idea and learning from my mistakes. This can be very satisfying and very frustrating at the same time.

Featured Artist Mandy Budan

I am fascinated by the play of possibilities in taking apart the landscape and putting it back together as abstract form. My work has a more realist feel from a distance and is distinctly abstract up close.

Featured Artist Carol MacConnell

There is a majesty and strength to a ballerina in a pose. I never tire of painting them. Although I was never a dancer, I live their dreams through my paintings.

Featured Artist Nancy Christy-Moore

"Inner Painting," (intuitive painting) forms the basis of my style. My goal in all my paintings is expression of my deepest feelings, not only about the subject matter, but my love of brilliant color and movement that mirrors my joy of living!

Featured Artist Marc Jaffe

There is a new excitement that is added by shooting at night and not looking. It brings me back to the days of film and painstakingly waiting for the film to be processed.

Featured Artist Susan La Mont

I find it fascinating that art seems to be like a mirror when hearing these tales. We each bring our own life experiences to art, and see the work through our own lens.
