The Gallery is pleased to spotlight and show the versatility of our artists.
Spotlight on artist LYNNE ROBERTO
I create art to express my wonder of the majesty of this world. I begin, by envisioning an idea in my head then research various areas what I want to create by searching the internet, looking at photographs or just taking a walk on the beach or in a park. I pick and choose images from all the things around me and combine them to form the painting. Once I have a reasonable amount of the painting done I take a picture of it and walk away to study the photo. I can usually determine where my painting needs work by this method. Sometimes I leave it for a few days, which helps me to put it in perspective. It often looks better when I return.
Spotlight on artist MARIA MARVOSH
Maria Marvosh has been involved in photography for a short time, beginning with the advent of digital cameras. Before this, Maria was capturing moments in time with film cameras. Using Adobe Photoshop techniques, Maria takes old pictures and converts them into photographs worthy of more than a glance.
Maria’s favorite subject matter includes local scenery from the ocean to the desert and mountains. Maria especially likes to shoot rocky landscapes as values of the rock formations shift dramatically with light and shadow changes.
Maria’s emphasis is to capture a mood and a look of bringing a personal feeling to a scene or event.
