Pamela Salyer -Painting/drawing

Pamela Salyer (Mixed Media) Nature is my biggest and most consistent inspiration. Whether the subject is a landscape, a branch, or a group of trees, my paintings and collages are my attempts to describe and capture the ephemeral beauty that I find outdoors. The results are usually somewhere between direct representation and abstraction, transforming trees, […]

Sandra Abraham – Painting/Drawing

Vista Bella, Pastel My pastel paintings are images of sunlit places I have visited. I have traveled to Italy, Bermuda, Florida, Maine, Eastern Canada, and the Southwest. Some of my work is painted plein aire, but most of the images are first composed with my camera. Later in my studio the photographs are used to […]

Hugh Bailey – Painting, Clay, Printmaking

Lynda Best – Painting

  For me, everything in nature is moving energy and that is part of my spirituality. The water and flowers are constantly changing because of our mountain seasons. I use acrylic in a modern impressionistic style with entrancing outlines and colors that “freeze” the movement and constant change found in the nature of Beautiful Tennessee. […]

Chriss Hardy – Painting

Kathy Holland – Painting

The landscape has always had a powerful pull on me and has shaped my sensibilities from a very early age all the way through my painting career. Recently I wanted to examine just how I related to the landscape, to challenge myself and take some risks. So I spent two months alone just painting the […]

Harriet Smith Howell – Painting, Painted Silk Clothing

Harriet’s paintings are expressive interpretations of the Tennessee landscape. She uses color and movement to capture the emotional and visual energy of nature. Some pieces are explorations into a real time and place. Others are involved in revealing the emotion and energy of a location through abstraction. All are an intensely personal response of the […]

Kate McCollough – Painting

  There is so much freedom in being able to create. The world of painting is a magical place where the looking glass is only limited by my imagination. The goal for my art is to not only reach that deeper place but to offer something to the viewer that could reach a place in […]

Marie Merritt – Painting

  A painting is not about the painter, but the subject. As the artist behind the work of art, I hope the viewer is first drawn to the emotion and character depicted in the painting. After focusing on this, details — the result of time-honored oil painting techniques — are discovered. Through the careful combination […]

Brenda Mills – Painting

I create art because it is exciting and liberating. My work frequently tells a story and often has an element of humor in it. I attempt to engage the viewer in my “narration”. They may never understand my intentions, but that is OK – the point is to enjoy the experience! Due to varied expressions […]

George Rothery, Jr. – Painting

Remembering a beginning interest in the world of art from the first grade when he constantly drew ship and airplanes, George Rothery says it suddenly dawned on him in third grade how to add perspective. Enhancing this early interest in art was a love of the water, sailing and racing that began with his summers […]

Diana Dee Sarker – Painting/Drawing

Victoria Simmons – Painting/Drawing

I have spent most of my life creating images from nature. Whether the light reflecting on a mountain lake, or reflecting in the eyes of a fox, the natural world has always spoken to me. From the time I picked up my first crayon as a small child, I have been drawing animals. Dogs, cats, […]
