Judit Varga: “My work has a strong connection with nature and its organic structures which it is built upon.”
Kathy Wismar: “[Being an artist] is a firery mixture of seeing what is not yet real and working to make it happen.”
Laurel Lukaszewski: “Work based on line, rhythm and form, playing with positive and negative space.”
Michele Cormier: “An array of interesting subject matter, mostly driven by what captures me at any given moment”
Mila Kagen: “[I examine] issues of transparency, opacity, tensile strength, gravity, brittleness and flexibility.”
