Stretch by Harriet Forman Barrett.jpg

My life work of 50 years has always been about our spirituality and the feminine. I’ve always worked to provoke conscious thought of our struggles and dualities. To find balance so that we may honor the divine within. I’ve been graced with always trying to work with faith, hope even through dark times. To find the light, the connection of who we are in our strength as spiritual warriors to empower us forward. Each of the paintings, sculptures, wearables represent all of the elements encompassing our struggles and power.

Disrupted by HEGO

"HEGO" is a pseudonym – derived from the first two letters of his first and last name (Heinz Goevert). A longtime drummer in the rock- and rhythm ‘n blues scene in Dortmund, Germany, he recently published a book about those years. HEGO’s works express primordial feelings controlled by reason. His materials vocabulary is just as eclectic, often incorporating sand, marble dust, twine, denim and copper into his paintings. He’s been publicly juried into the top 10 twelve times in the “Saatchi Showdown" Gallery, which receives over 40 million hits per day. HEGO's works were shown in exhibitions in New York, Cape Town, Stockholm, Luxembourg, Malta, Orewa (NZ), and in Cologne, Hagen and Witten, Germany. HEGO has works in private collections all over the world.

It Speaks in Silence an oil painting by Hilda Green Demsky

The inspiration for my paintings comes from places I’ve been and thoughts I have about nature. I feel energized when I see water. I grew up on the banks of the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. The constantly changing movement of water, reflections and color inspire me.

I enjoy working in a variety of materials, but my preference has always been oil paint. I love its fluidity and depth of color. My water paintings are metaphors for life flowing unceasingly, running its course, urging us to take the time to enjoy the beauty surrounding us.

Fork Galicia by Howard Goodman

For hundreds, if not thousands of years it has been said that all art is a reflection of a society or culture. Because there is more than enough bad news and misery in our world, the great challenge of the artist is to not simply join in and say "look how horrible this is", but to see and express beauty that uplifts the spirit in the face of adversity.  It is the artist's job to portray what is wondrous and inspiring about the human experience. The common thread in my photography is how an everyday object can reveal our humanity.

Ilse Schreiber-Noll's Sunflower Road

In recent years the artist returned to painting, installations, and making unique Artist’s Books. She creates densely painted surfaces with the addition of collage elements: wire, wood, photos, and books that give a strong sense of physical presence. Much of her work depicts the terrors of war and the threat of ecological disaster. While her work is less concerned with beauty than with ideas, it transmits an undeniable sense of poetry and lyricism.

Addiction by Irene Osborn

My sculptures deal with insights into the human condition. My pieces reflect attitudes, states of mind, and flashes of insight. They are influenced by my growing up in post war Germany and coming of age during the second wave of feminism during the 60‘s and 70‘s. While my sculptures reflect this background, they do not need the feminist lens to be understood. They are figurative without being overly realistic. My goal is to capture universal emotions, thoughts, and feelings in my clay.

One Degree of Separation by Jackie Merritt

As an Artist and Musician/Songwriter, I am by nature a storyteller. It doesn’t matter if my story is told on canvas or in song. Whether it’s intentional or not, ideas overlap and influence each other during the process of creating.

I’m a painter. I prefer working with color pastel on paper and or oil on canvas. I love the intimacy of the chalk in my hands, the quickness of application when applying oil, the vividness of color and the enjoyment of working and reworking the painted surfaces…I embrace the journey.

Horizon Ships 5 (2).jpg

While grounded in reality, my work draws on the aesthetic traditions of minimalism, realism and remembrance art.  Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to evoke realms of the imagination.  I seek to establish a link between reality and imagination based on my interior response to a subject.  A place where fiction and reality balance.  Time and memory play a key role.  In my exploration of landscape I strive to amplify the astonishment of the viewer by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil, poetic images which convey traces of recognition and alienation.

Catalyst by Janet Rutkowski

Great art, whether it be visual, sculptural, functional or audio, has a presence, a spirit which it truly felt. I seek to incorporate that presence, that spirit into every piece I create. Art is an unfounded religion whose inspiration comes from a divine source. the power is within each of us, and we should use it in everything we do, in all walks of life. It is the power of transformation. Transformation of the mundane into the divine.

I am a Brooklyn-based artist working in metal whose work includes abstract sculpture, architectural ironwork, and functional art for over 30 years.

Jeanette Rodriguez has always been engaged in art and is a teaching artist for over a decade. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Rodriguez is an award-winning artist who has exhibited in galleries for decades and whose work hangs on the walls in private collections. She is the Founder of Soul Painting, a workshop that helps students tap into their intuition. She loves creating art and sharing the process of making art with others.


She had the opportunity to teach in Mayer, Arizona, and the Big Island of Hawaii. Upon returning to New York, she began teaching Soul Painting in the Hudson Valley area. Jeanette is fascinated by students who initially believed they were incapable of creating art become painters, jewelry designers, and full-time artists!


As an artist, she finds that painting helps her release stress; it has assisted her in healing during rough times in her life. Jeanette admits it's not always easy. She's learned to live in the moment and trust the process. She shares her creative teaching style with the same motivation and enthusiasm to help students release stress and help them discover and explore their inner-artistic gifts.

African Elephant, Ugandan 500 Shilling Note by Jenna Lash
Tanzanian Giraffe, Tanzanian 500 Shilling by Jenna Lash

Jenna Lash’s art focuses on the highly charged iconography of global currency. Lash’s painted images, sourced from international currency, explore the philosophical and political ideas of how value is assigned and how that may become a reflection of worth. She varies her use of images as a metaphor to provide a visual framework focused on different countries and societies. Her re-interpreted images of currency encourage the viewer to reflect on connections and conflicting perspectives concerning our world. Today’s global culture, represented here through the prism of Lash’s money-art, emphasizes humanity’s challenge to live and work together.

Traversing No 1 by Jennifer Moné Hill
Spectrum by Jennifer Moné Hill

Working primarily with acrylic paint to create abstract fluid paintings, I explore motion, vibration, and the interaction of color, to provoke emotion, spark curiosity, and visual delight. Altering the viscosity of the paint to allow it to flow across the surface freely then using significant motion is the catalyst to the composition, creating my signature cells, wisps, and drips.  Vibration visually, and energetically are part of the creative process and become part of the work. The colors mingle but still retain their integrity as they interact becoming something new when they meet. 

Working in abstract painting, going beyond the representational world, to the pure, raw, power of emotion is what excites me. When colors combine, when we make a mark that means something to the spirit, beyond the known familiar image, breaking past the façade of our perception to something greater, that’s what motivates me.

My goal is to present a purely visual space in which color, the language of emotion and energy and the defining element in my work, combined with lines or geometric shapes create an illusion of movement and rhythm that envelop the viewer, eliciting a visceral response.

I received my MFA at Lehman College in NYC, studying under noted painter and printmaker, Arun Bose. I have been in the art making business for 30 years. Etching has been my main medium for a good part of that time but currently I mostly paint. My time is split between New York and Arizona and my subject matter leans towards rural settings, animals, nature and the southwestern landscape.

Which Sphere

My paintings evolve out of my subconscious in a free flowing intuitive process - I do not start with a preconceived idea or plan – the art is my reflection. The work I create makes people feel good & instills positive emotions and harmony, along with a curiosity. My work frees the mind and spirit; inspired by the early Abstract Expressionists I seek the emotion and spirit of the painting by way of the unconscious and spiritual. I also love and am inspired by textural qualities and color and strive to use diverse materials in my work.

Easy Chair on Tuesday by Juliet Martin
Sitting Room on Friday by Juliet Martin

I craft satiric memoirs by combining weaving, sewing, and illustration. Sometimes I weave and then sew. Sometimes I sew and then draw. Bringing together my sculptures is an integrated process. Free associating, I weave colors, patterns, textures. The loom is a blank canvas, with no model. I’m not drawing figures, I’m capturing feelings.
I weave most of my fabric, focusing on aesthetics instead of patterns. My improvisational style forces me to find a distinct voice. If there are no rules, no mistakes, how do I know what NOT to do?
I am not always funny, but I am always sincere.
