SARA GAGAN

My oil paintings often portray animals, and might be described as representational, but with a twist. I often incorporate elements of collage for color, texture, or symbolic meaning. Images of human-made tidbits, other natural forms, even other animals, contribute to the appearance of my subject animals and their environments as a kind of testament to our shared nature – we are all composed of recycled, reconfigured, and ever changing matter.

CONNY HATCH

Conny Hatch is drawn to the beauty in found and reclaimed objects – the weathered texture of old wood or the rusted patina on metal. The materials themselves are her main source of inspiration. Parts of an old lobster trap or a rusted rake that have had a previous purpose are transformed into something new yet familiar.

LESLIE MOORE

Leslie Moore is a printmaker, a pen-and-ink artist, and animal lover. Relief printmaking is the opposite of drawing. In printmaking, she carves out what she doesn't want in the final image; in drawing, she ink ins what she does want. The dichotomy between these two art forms builds creative energy.

MF MORISON

The majority of MF Morison's work is intaglio copper plate etching. She often adds elements of color and texture through chine colle. This is achieved by layering thin pieces of rice or organic papers or precious metal gilding between the plate and dampened rag paper before they go through the press. Her imagery is a distillation of the natural world in which she engages the viewer on an intuitive level.

To me winter holds an abundance of beauty and color, nevertheless, in my studio it’s floral colors that inevitably emerge on my winter paintings each year.
