Paintings Combining Oils, Acrylics and Encaustics
by Nanci Hersh

First Floor Gallery

Nanci explores love and loss as the overarching journey tying her personal paintings together. Water flows as a metaphor for life, for healing and for moving forth through emotional, personal times to ultimately find joy and new challenges. Her use of a variety of paint media on surfaces of canvas, board or Tyvek with deliberate tactile and textural elements and markings to represent those emotions we hold and collect on our personal treks. 


Abstract Paintings Using Mixed Media
by Sally Eisenberg

Second Floor Gallery

Sally jumps right into the canvas dancing with her large strokes of bright under-tones, then placing layer upon layer of additional paints which build up by using mixed media for textures or by adding words or images. Her goal is to generate a very personal painting that has been inspired from life events but yet resonates to the viewer. Her artistic life is amplified by her vocal work in voice-overs as well as a wellness coach.

Historical Dream Jewelry
by Nina Grier

West Vitrines

Nina’s journey into the creation of artisan jewelry started at the end of a successful career in the health industry. Her goal was to showcase the cultural diversity of famous and lesser-known figures who have reached across the past to bridge us to the present and future America. Look for the signature olive branch nestled in her company’s logo and ask about the accomplishments of her historical heroes.
 


Polymer Clay Pieces
by Emily Squires Levine

East Vitrines

Emily’s discovery of Fumo clay in 1996 was the beginning of her journey to teach herself all of the ways that this one material could be used creating infinite varieties of one-of-a-kind beads to collaborating with 300 other polymer artists to create an enormous forest of life-sized trees.  Come delight in all of her ‘special little things’ from small mille Flore bowls to accent tiles and even very charming eggs.
