I have painted continuously for the last 45 years in a wide variety of styles and
mediums. My primary focus has been abstract work of a constructivist nature, exploring
color, symmetries and spatial illusion.
When I paint, the form is simply the container for the process.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. Melody Beattie
Oi Fortin is an abstract expressionist printmaker; her monotypes have a meditative quality, subtle textures and present vivid narratives.
Over many years, my work has evolved into explorations of the abstract landscape using multi and mixed media: watercolor collage; encaustic with steel and rust, and natural elements imbedded into the image; acrylic with inks and gouache on canvas, board and paper--all meant to convey my memories and impressions of places traveled.
Roberta is a member of City Gallery, New Haven, who over time has sought to convey her love of the landscape in a variety of media: watercolor collage, encaustic, acrylic and oil media–emphasizing the texture and layers of nature–both real and imagined, urban and rural.
My assemblages/installations focus on the relationship between the natural world and humanity. Because of a commitment to reducing my environmental footprint, the work heavily relies on post-consumer waste. This material functions as both muse and raw matter for the production of art making. I also address the notion of transcendence in my work.

Her work has been reviewed in ARTnews, Art New England, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and featured in New American Paintings Magazine.
I am attempting to fuse the history of art into something new, drawing subject and style from cave painting to contemporary, classic figure to pure abstract, using a symbolic palette and a technique I call reverse chiaroscuro ( darkness or color coming out of light). The silver, white, and gold symbolize mortality. the soul, and eternity.

If you could be the star of your own film, with history as your script, what character would you play? Playing Soldier follows the lives of WWII reenactors and would-be time travelers. But the results get complicated when people of different backgrounds don military uniforms and try to live through someone else’s war.
Ed Gendron currently resides in New Haven, CT. although he grew up in the southern U.S.
Most recently, he’s been documenting WWII reenactors throughout the U.S., culminating in a series of photographs and a feature length documentary film called Playing Soldier (2017).

My training in art has been entirely in evening classes, starting with drawing and watercolor in Pittsburgh in the 1970s. I have taken portrait and figure drawing classes at various studios such as ArtsPlace in Cheshire and the Creative Arts Workshop. I use pencil as a precursor to applying watercolors.
The work is a mixture of media including encaustic (hot wax) painting, digital machine embroidery and various printmaking processes (including monotypes and silkscreen, on Encaustiflex; a kind of cross between paper and fabric).
Ms. Giuliani is the recipient of a 2008 Artist Fellowship Grant from the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism for Craft. Her work was included in the Farnsworth Museum’s show, “Beyond Rugs” and her work is in the permanent art collections of the Housatonic Museum of Art and the state of Connecticut.
I am interested in patterns, surface design, and decoration. The impulse to decorate and embellish is present in ancient textiles and other forms of handicraft. Yet throughout history, cultural perceptions of ornament, color, and decoration have varied. My installations and paintings reflect and respond to cultural responses of these traditions.

Ellen Gordon is a mixed media artist. Her work is based on drawings from private sessions with a model. The work speaks about the creative magic that happens when inspiration and form collide. The art is the result of a searching process – finding the shapes and lines in both the figure and transcribing those lines into contemporary compositions.
Ellen Gordon is co executive director of the Loft Artists Association in Stamford and serves on the board of the Greenwich Art Society. Ms. Gordon teaches art programs for art lovers of all ages. She holds a BS from Boston University and a masters degree from Baruch College. She has exhibited regionally and is the recipient of many awards.
My work is photo-based, but not always evident. I explore and exploit various alternative photo methods- including digital imagery- that evolve into mixed media final pieces. My processes reflect a response to issues that concern the human condition such as love, the effects of war on children, global warming, and natural disasters.
I was born in Chomutov, Czech Republic. I currently reside in Milford, CT and have lived in many places such as: Israel, Virginia, Boston, South Carolina, California, and recently Omaha, NE. I received a B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University, graduate course work at The Massachusetts College of Art, and an M.F.A. from Clemson University.
