abstract landscape by Romeo Robert Tomei

“Infinite Mystic of Spirit” acrylic and gold leaf on canvas, 40″ x 40″ x 3″ by Romeo Robert Tomei


Romeo Robert Tomei

My art answers to the mystical forces of nature. My studio is filled with music where ideas and feelings form and magic occurs, stretching my canvas. It’s an emotional engagement with exhilaration emerging from a clear canvas.


Breaking Through watercolor painting by Aprajita Lal

“Breaking Through” watercolor, 16″ x 20″ by Aprajita Lal

I am a nature lover. My artistic inspiration comes from nature—it’s magic and its beauty. I create to connect with my audience by painting something that makes me, and I hope others, happy to look at.


assemblage by Bryan Sieling

“Voltage” assemblage, 27″ x 13″ x 12″ by Bryan Sieling

My found- assemblages merge experimentation and happenstance with careful planning and design, resulting in unique works of intrigue and whimsy. Viewers are drawn in to discover materials and ponder possible motives and narratives.


abstract acrylic by Merritt Richardson

“Vivant” acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 24″ by Merritt Richardson


Merritt Richardson

Abstract paintings are my invitation to a conversation. Favoring bold color, rich textures and energetic movement, I hope my work sparks a dialogue about the impressions and emotions created for each person who sees it.


figurative painting by Connie Freid

“Survivor” acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 30″ by Connie Freid


Connie Freid

Pushing the boundaries beyond traditional portraiture, I convey both strength and vulnerability in my subjects. My inspiration often comes from the news, questioning ideas about gender, race and beauty.


mixed media 3D art by Sam Silberstein

“Neural Disconnect” kraft paper and copper wire on panel, 24″ x 24″ by Sam Silberstein


Sam Silberstein

My work explores and exposes environmental issues of our time. I strive to find a way to end one-time-use packaging by turning cardboard and other packing materials into works of art.


abstract mixed media painting by Monica Gewurz

“Luminescent” acrylic and mixed media, 35″ x 35″ x 2″ by Monica Gewurz


Monica Gewurz

This painting was inspired by the colors of dusk. I use acrylics and unconventional tools to create texture, blurring the line between painting and sculpture and adding layers of color that create luminous, dreamlike effects.


abstract painting by Marcie Couet

“Magenta Tulips” acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 30″ by Marcie Couet


Marcie Couet

I am inspired by the infinite nature of creativity and growth. My works combine conscientious color palette selection and intuitive mark making and my composition is influenced by decades of professional content creation.


abstract mixed media painting by Linda Watson

“Mardi Gras II” mixed media on canvas, 5″ x 7″ by Linda Watson


Linda Watson

The pandemic canceled the traditional Mardi Gras parade, but New Orleanians still managed to celebrate Fat Tuesday by decorating their homes. This painting honors their ingenuity at turning a dark time into a celebration.


landscape painting with horses by Carl McKinley

“Kentucky Horse Farm” watercolor, 15.5″ x 12″ by Carl McKinley

I am basically a wildlife artist, working in watercolor and acrylic. I have always been inspired by nature and wildlife.


acrylic painting by Dan Tran

“Uncivil Civil War” acrylic, 60″ x 48″ x 1.5″ by Dan Tran


Dan Tran

I paint to protest what damages we inflict on our earth and ourselves (social injustice, racism, climate crisis, armed conflicts) and celebrate the goodness in us (love, friendship, community, science, innovation) in my naive style.


watercolor landscape by Kristen Dunkelberger

“Smoke Veiled Tetons” watercolor on paper, 9″ x 6.25″ by Kristen Dunkelberger


Kristen Dunkelberger

My paintings are a continuation of watercolor landscape tradition with contemporary expression. Loose representation, abstract elements and negative space create a place of refuge for contemplation of our relationship to the natural world.


oil landscape by Bill O'Connor

“Morning at Chambord” oil on canvas, 24″ x 18″ by Bill O’Connor


Bill O’Connor

NYC born, I became a bartender after college, then owned a few restaurants. I befriended Kurt Vonnegut and artist Nickademus Hufford who made me an art museum junkie. Museums were my “escape from New York.”


botanical painting by Nehal Desai

“Twilight” acrylic on canvas, 108″ x 77″ by Nehal Desai


Nehal Desai

“Twilight” is an expression of my deep longing for interconnectedness with the all-pervasive and eternally present nature. I find my artistic voice when I camouflage my existence with the deep, mystic realms of nature.


figurative painting by Joseph Schwartzman

“Dancer in Nebula Number 6″ oil on canvas, 14″ x 11” by Joseph Schwartzman


Joseph Schwartzman

This painting is part of a series which includes two elements that I feel are beautiful and justifiably go together. The photos of nebulas taken by the Hubble telescope and ballet dancers. They are unity of form.


mixed media landscape by Mary Ellen Palmeri

“Bountiful Garden” paper, sand and cotton fiber, 30″ x 24″ by Mary Ellen Palmeri


Mary Ellen Palmeri

I’ve always had an inner need to respond to life with visual expressions. “Bountiful Garden” reflects my fascination with the teeming life—plant and animal—that thrives in the Sonoran Desert where I now reside.


abstract painting by CarolLynn Tice

“Two Layers” acrylic on canvas, 24″ x 36″ by CarolLynn Tice


CarolLynn Tice

I am passionate about creating beautiful art that will make someone’s day feel lighter and brighter. In my creative process, I aspire for my art to be simple in design yet full of meaning.


Mixed media collage by Emily Fuller

“Wear Those Pearls” collage with acrylic, paper, material, canvas and glitter on masonite board, 16″ x 16″ by Emily Fuller


Emily Fuller

My mixed media collage combines photographs, material, sewing and paper, with acrylic or oil paint. I strive to combine realism and abstraction. This piece is a portrait I did when coming out of Covid lockdown.


painting of a map and ship by Jolene Dames

“True North” casein-based paint, 36″ x 56″ by Jolene Dames


Jolene Dames

I paint large scale paintings inspired by the concept of navigation of the world and life itself. I am fascinated with transmuting the ordinary into the extraordinary in my unrelenting quest for true north.


acrylic and gouache painting by Jessica Freedman

“Melody” acrylic and gouache on canvas, 40″ x 30″ by Jessica Ruth Freedman

I am a Canadian contemporary painter, speaker and mentor. My mixed media artworks explore the dichotomies within our urban and rural environments, always searching for moments of unity, peacefulness and inspiration.


assemblage by Charlie Milgrim

“2 Histories” bowling balls and iron, 21″ x 15″ x 10″ by Charlie Milgrim

My sculpture and installation work is informed by the ties and lies between history, science and culture. My materials of choice are bowling balls, roofing tar paper, objects of enigmatic origin and gravity.


digital photograph by Isabella Richter

“Apple Blossom” digitally manipulated photo of handmade apple papyrus, 33″ x 23.5″ by Isabella Richter


Isabella Richter

I transform mostly overlooked, everyday plant foods into objects of art using macro photography and a variety of mediums including digital manipulation, acrylics, gel mediums and plaster.


seascape by Nineta Vretou

“Listening” acrylic on canvas, 20″ x 16″ by Nineta Vretou


Nineta Vretou

In my paintings, I capture and record what I feel exists. I use unique codes to describe the structure of the visual elements and the products of interaction among them that escape our direct perception.
