"Sharing" invites you to pause, to see, to remember the beauty of the world that we share with you.

Residing in beautiful Hunterdon County, NJ, Bill Jersey states "I am surrounded by creeks, forests, fields and hills-an abundance of scenes I want to capture or interpret on canvas. Over time, my paintings evolved from more realistic scenes of the natural world to more interpreted representations, using dramatic colors to evoke fresh perspectives. As a documentary filmmaker of many years, I learned to catch a moment in time and use it to tell a larger story. That is what I seek to capture in my paintings."

Laura Rutherford Renner, from Collingswood, NJ, enjoys painting figures engaged in the experience of their environments. "Capturing these interactions in two dimensions is an exercise and a source of calm. I relish mixing pure colors, keeping my palette simple to create authentic observation. The quiet engagement of brush to palette and brush to board provides meaning for me everyday". Laura, an occupational therapist for the past 27 years, is currently retired from work in public schools, and renews her full time focus on painting.

Heather Barros, from Princeton NJ, paints landscapes from life, and lately from screen shots captured from movies and videos. "My current favorite color is grey. I enjoy mixing various greys with oil paints and using them in my storms and sandy terrains".

Larry Mitnick, living in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania has continuously painted throughout his career as an architect and educator. He states, "the ideas that inform my paintings and architecture are in a friendly conversation, exchanging insights gained from each. I understand space to be more than an immense vacuum but the medium through which we inhabit the world. Spatial conditions are poetic structures that embody human experience of everyday objects, places, landscapes and the figure. My paintings try to catch the abstraction that lies behind appearances. In the end, emotions take hold as one is drawn into my paintings through the elements of form/space, color and visual movement".
