Stephen Brehm: An inspirational setting is paramount in the creation process. Capturing light and the vibration between two colors while building the painting surface with loose, vibrant brushwork is his goal. Stephen was influenced by artist that had a direct painting method, capturing a gesture or objects with simple yet lively brush strokes.


Yukang Chen

Nat Clymer

Barbara Colasuonno

Liz Cummings: I use oils and like to work on large format canvases to create the feeling that you can actually "walk into" the painting. My recent challenge to myself is to represent the feeling of movement in a painting. I'm working with many different effects of reflections to acheive a rhythm in the water. I'm introducing the mirror qualities of the early morning light, and using undulating reflections to create the sense of motion in the work. My background is in architecture, which gives me a strong sense of balance and design.

John Deng: I hope my work transcends the ordinary landscape to express the drama and the story of the places and its people. Much of my work is shot in China because my emotion and enthusiasm flows from these places. Art originates from the heart, while its structure and expression are full of technique.

Joseph Dragotta discovered his love for photography while taking a course in graduate school. Through the medium of photography, Joseph strives to capture endearing human moments, striking urban textures, and remarkable natural landscapes.

Brian Eppley is primarily a landscape painter working both on site (plein air) and in studio. His influences range from the post impressionists to Russian expressionism to San Francisco Bay area figurative artists. His main objective when working on a piece is to maintain the abstract element that the composition is based on and infusing atmosphere to maintain believability. He attempts to achieve this goal by using a color temperature controlled pallette and

Lou Gagnon: As a colorist, Lou Gagnon works primarily with soft pastels on paper. Bridging the methods of the old masters with 21st century science, he captures the ephemeral and eternal essence of his local landscape.

David Oleski has found a voice in his version of an intense scrutiny of the world around him. Following in the footsteps of the 19th century Impressionists, he continues to explore increasingly fragmented views of simple still lifes. He captures a sense of rhythm and atmosphere with sophisticated colors, and thick and deliberate brushwork.

An accomplished wildlife artist, Steve Oliver is proficient in several mediums and techniques, including acrylics, ink and colored pencils. Specializing in North American birds and mammals, his compositions typically are colorful, moody, atmospheric and accurate, while capturing the character of each subject and the habitat that surrounds them.

Joshua Solomon

Jonathan Spector is a photographer and surfer from Long Beach, NY. His interest in photography started twelve years ago when he became a guidance counselor at a Long Island high school.
