Beatrice Bork explores the intricacies of the animal world. "I enjoy the careful exploration and forethought that is required to create my paintings in watercolor". "A mixture of transparent and opaque watercolor provides me both a freeing and thoughtful way to portray my subjects." Beatrice translates her experiences and observations in nature, into a scenario or moment that reflects both subject as well as her own soul.
Beatrice is an accomplished animal artist, whose paintings have been honored and exhibited among the best international animal artists. She is a past winner of the prestigious Don Eckelberry Award for outstanding bird art and is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists. Her paintings have been published and acquired by collectors from around the world. To learn more about Beatrice, visit her website at www.beatricebork.artspan.com.
Carol Sanzalone is enamored with the color, texture and graphic beauty of nature and beyond. "I am fascinated by images as simple as a pile of leaves or group of petals, as well as the vast patterns of shapes and textures that enliven the countryside". A painting may develop from a realistic subject or from an experimental approach to the transparent quality of color and form that are unique to watercolor and acrylic washes, reflecting the beauty of natural and reflected color.
Carol has exhibited widely in solo, group and juried shows throughout the Northeast, as well as teaching art classes and workshops for many years on the secondary school and adult level. She has worked in oil, watercolor and acrylic, as well as printmaking in silkscreen and lithography. Her paintings reflect the unique creative experiences of her artistic life.
