Lynne Berman’s ceramics reflect her simplicity and interest in architecture. In the fall of 1994, she quit work at The Philadelphia Inquirer to join her husband on a year’s sabbatical. In Boston Miami and London, she took pottery courses. By the end of the year, she knew she was a potter. She loves the feel of the clay passing through her fingers. She love cities. Her work, mostly thrown on the wheel, focuses on the geometric simplicity of city buildings. “Perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add but when there is no longer anything to take away, when a body has been stripped to its nakedness.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944), French aviator, writer.
Linda Dubin Garfield creates colorful works on paper that combine traditional printmaking, mixed media & digital technology based on her love of travel, the mystery of memory & the magic of place. Nature nurtures and inspires her. She combines elements of nature, texture and design along with the magic of the press. She is intrigued by memory and what remains in her mind’s eye. Her work reflects scenes from travel near and far. More than a report on how it was exactly, she is interested in her expressive and passionate response to the color and pattern of the landscape, experience or image. Rather than representing every detail, she evokes the hidden and reveal the atmosphere, creating personal visual memoirs that the viewer responds to, triggering a memory or experience .
Color is Diane Lachman’s primary source of inspiration. She is interested in how color defines our idea of form, and how color choice determines interpretation. Her years of experience teaching color theory at the University of Pennsylvania complements her intuitive approach to painting. Recent works explore the analogy between color-guided composition and musical expression.
Joye Schwartz loves interpreting the emotionality of a subject through brilliant color and simple shapes. For her painting involves a sensual journey using watercolor or oils, feeling the juiciness of the oil with her palette knife or playing with the watery color dripping down the paper. Her paintings evolve through the visual discovery of the landscape, figure or still life. Vivid color brings the scene alive and full of life and joy.
Nancy Freeman Tabas’ artwork is a projection of her personality; energetic, spontaneous full of life and passion. Every painting, like every day, is new and exciting to Tabas. Her landscapes are realistic abstraction. They are an exploration of color, form and imagery. She sees the world as bright and hopeful and tries to portray this through her work.
