Rachelle Mark: “This series of vintage sheet music images express my love of Broadway, movies, and radio of the 1930’s and 1940’s.”

Caren J. Gafni –  "My paintings are inspired by nature by igniting the senses of the viewer."

Joan Greenwald –  “Three life endeavors flow into my artwork: music, tai chi and painting. Whereas, we hear music’s vibrations and radiate tai chi’s, everything we see emerges from light vibrations. Color expresses light's invisible spirit. It’s an honor to present this color spirit through the flow of our most essential component — water.”  

Selina Cheng –  “My paintings express my love of adventure and nature. To me every painting is an exciting journey, it transports me to places where I am free to experiment and create images with vibrant colors and bold strokes.”

Lynne Schroeder –  “I am ever grateful that I have grown up in a world that has allowed me to merge two creative talents; music and art. I imagine, dream and create visions in a very personal way, expanding towards an awareness of the world around me. I draw from life’s experiences as I am inspired by the energy and spirit of humans and their surroundings. My colors are bold and my drawings are powerful. They are pulled from the deepest layer of my soul and flow onto the page.”

Dee Stone – “The beauty I see in people and nature inspire my creativity. When I am painting I lose myself in my work, I feel at peace and my creativity flows.”

A vibrant and dynamic art exhibit to welcome in the spring. Splash of Spring - A Creative Vision is comprised of works on canvas and paper by artists Joy Merzer Freedman, Ann Gerstenfeld, Jill E. Gluck, Paula Hatton, Rachelle Mark, Debbi Saunders, Lynne Schroeder and Dee Stone.

For Joy Merzer Freedman, working with watercolor is fresh and spontaneous, a meditation where paint and water lead the way. Painting in watercolor allows Ann Gerstenfeld to experiment with intertwining color, texture, ink and line. Jill Gluck’s paintings reflect the richness of her experiences traveling around the world. Paula Hatton’s paintings are colorful and playful. Rachelle Mark’s works use color to convey movement, nature, and feelings of peace. A bold use of color is used in Debbi Saunders’ still life and city life paintings. Lynne Schroeder’s artwork reflects the rhythmic energy of her life. Dee Stone’s art is for the ‘serious unserious viewer’.

The eight artists showing together belong to Artist Co-op 7, a group of forty-eight who believe that education never stops, and that growth as an artist is predicated on stretching the boundaries of the known.
