Jane Ferguson

Chestertown based, Jane's goal is to express on canvas the beauty that she sees in the everyday and the joy she feels when painting.  She enjoys both plein air and studio painting and loved painting "relationships" - between children and families; beach scenes and water reflections; the sunrise and sunset;  anything to do with family, nature, flowers, sand and water. Jane strives to paint the invisible, those moments in time that each of us carries in our heart.

Donna Finley

Pastel is Ms. Finley’s medium. The immediacy, vibrancy and luminosity of soft pastels fulfill her instinctive need to permanently capture moments in time to emphasizes their beauty. It allows her to translate her love of line and form through color and a variety of strokes to instill

light and life into her paintings.  Her work is representational however, her color palette also expresses some impressionistic elements. She wants the viewer to experience what she sees and feels as if there in the moment.

Holly's work shows the strong influence of photography and decorative painting, both in the natural colors and fine detail she uses. She explores techniques using a variety of painting media, including pen and ink, oils, watercolor, pastels and glass paint.  Her projects range from landscapes, still lifes and portraits to decorative painting on furniture and small gift items. Recently she has focused on pastels and oils because of the vibrancy and subtlety of color that these media permit.

Judi Gunther

Fabric is Judi's chosen medium as it provides her with the ability to take a flat, one dimensional material and manipulate it into a multidimensional piece with texture, depth, and movement. She enjoys combining geometric shapes with natural forms to create visual interpretations of abstract concepts. Judi finds the challenge of selecting the right piece of fabric to represent a specific image is exciting.

Pat Lang

Pat would find it difficult to imagine a life without painting. Art has always been an important part of her life since her childhood school days. She finds it to be a form of meditation. When Pat paints, time doesn’t exist. Hours pass as if only minutes have elapsed. Her subjects vary to include landscapes, animals, seascapes and still life, all with incredible attention to detail. After many years of painting she continues to challenge herself. Learning and growing in her art never ends, as the process for each new work shows her not only where she is now, but where she wants to go.”
