Featured Artist – Lynn Chatman

The versatility of acrylic inspires me to explore its many techniques and avenues of expression. Much of my work explores and pushes the boundaries of abstract experimentation. Most of the time I don’t know where I’m going at the beginning of a painting until I make marks on canvas or paper. Whether it’s color or texture, I let intuition guide me until I see something I like, then I expand on it. Sometimes I focus on ways to express the different “seasons” in the circle of life by using symbolism, texture and color; thus, the symbolism I find in candles, dragonflies, ravens, rust, etc.

Art is different to everyone. It can be beautiful or evoke emotions as well as relax you. To Lewis Isaac Testa it has been going on for 44 years now.

His Last project was to help design the Oval Room Rug for the Whitehouse for President Bush. In 2003 he suffered a stroke due to a spinal fusion, which left him paralyzed on his right side. It took 4 years of intense physical therapy to feel normal again. Art was not in the forecast for the rest of his life. But then his granddaughter was born and Art came back into his life. All that you see is art after his stroke. He said I guess you have to loose everything to gain what really matters. He considers himself the luckiest man alive.

Featured Artist – Stacy Solodkin

Painting at its best for me is pure self expression. It’s a practice of letting go and allowing something to flow through me and onto the page. People have always said that my work feels alive which is exactly how I experience them- both during my process and after. Because the various elements I work with are fluid I’m able to continuously manipulate the flow, color and structure which leaves me feeling like I’m actually collaborating with the elements to create each piece. Whether I’m using encaustics, pigmented alcohol inks, acrylics or resin-I try my best to keep myself in unison with them…And if I am quiet and listen closely the paintings talk to me.
