Elizabeth DeMarco is an abstract artist exploring painting from the gut. She uses layers of liquid on various papers, canvas, and yupo to see the relationships that form and how the process leads to insight.
Painter P. (Philip) Smallwood is known for his signature watercolor paintings Lifescapes, a powerful form of portraiture and visual narrative. In these works, Smallwood portrays the subject within his or her natural environment, carefully manipulated to evoke an emotional connection with the viewer. Through composition, line, form, and finely finished surfaces, P. Smallwood creates compelling portraits that convey a feeling about how the subjects live their lives.
Prof. Yelena Aronson has shown her digital art projects in New York and New Jersey galleries as well as on the Internet. In 2005 her digital art was selected for an exhibit at the Biannual Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy - 2005 Biennale Internazionale de Arte
Contemporanea. In 2010 her art was selected for US Biannual Artists Exhibit at Broadway Gallery in NYC.
