Lidia Wylangowska

My art tells my story. It's a story of my world, of my thoughts and emotions entwined in an internal dialogue. And some of it can be expressed only through painting. It is incredible, how fairy-tales I heard once-upon-a-time, in my childhood actually influenced my life and defined who I am. As an adult, I still believe in happy endings and that good will prevail. The Enchanted Pencil is one of the stories I remember very clearly. This special pencil could materialize anything drawn, such as ...

Roger Goodspeed

Since his retirement from active medical practice, more time became available to Roger for picking up the paint brush and attending workshops to hone up his skills. From Roger : I have enjoyed exploring the conversion of sound into vision as Walt Disney attempted in his 'Fantasia' productions. I listen to a piece of music and convert the pictures the music produces in my mind to a 2 dimensional painting. Difficult, but sometimes rewarding. I believe an artist should hope to renew the joy and ...

Pinzarrone

Paul Pinzarrone Pinzarrone's work went from photography & paintings of photo-realistic science fiction to abstracted futuristic landscapes & machines. He preferred textureless, very smooth surfaces and began working with airbrushes, spraying acrylic lacquers on the back side of clear plexiglas. He preferred hinting at realism by executing finely detailed images of things and places that we have not seen but think we might have. To be "art", it had to be New. Why do another traditional landscape...
