“Bouquet” by Caitlin Lindsay Rose

Caitlin is best known for her freeform circle paintings made of vibrant acrylic brushwork and layered drips on canvas. Motivated by freedom of emotion, she strives to create works of art that can define themselves. “I want my art to speak for itself, so I don’t want to define it with a title. I have pieces that have specific meanings, but some are just created in a spurt of emotion and that’s how I want someone to experience it as well.”

 “Dauphin”
Suzy Nelson creates art inspired by objects that attract her artistic interest. Often, it is by color, texture, design, or value. Through this process, Suzy chooses a medium that will project the image in the most effective manner. Her painting experiences began with renderings in opaque color with pen and ink, followed by oil, watercolor and acrylic. Suzy’s use of color and various materials make her images come to life by providing depth and movement in each piece, making the images seem to jump off the canvas.
