Julia Contacessi

In 2000, Julia earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in New York City. Over the years, her eye for composition coupled with her love of painting, design and photography has earned Julia numerous awards in such publications as Photographer's Forum and Creativity along with inclusion into the Yale Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library Special Collections(ALSC) in New Haven, CT.

Julia never strayed far from texture, paint and the mixing and layering of mediums, which are important components to Julia's work. In fact, Julia's most recent abstracts focus on deconstructing painted color palette studies through isolated images, and then rebuilding those studies with new form and composition.

Teodora Guererra

Teodora Guererra’s artistic vision has evolved through the years, which she has spent painting and teaching in Fairfield County, Connecticut, Tucson, Arizona, and Upstate New York. Arizona’s naturally radiant landscape and arid climate led her to experiment with rich under-painting and vivid colors, while the shifting seasons of the East Coast inspired her to pursue new application techniques like dripping and staining. Her focus has always been pushing the limits through experimentation with new materials.

Alison Jerry

Based in Dallas, TX, Alison Jerry is an abstract artist whose work draws on her upbringing in Wisconsin and Upstate New York, as well as her travels worldwide. After studying design at Syracuse University, she began working for Hallmark Cards and later as a freelance designer in New York City. She later returned to fine art where she felt she was able to exercise more of her own creative freedom.

Her scenes are inspired by nature, combining dramatic movement and light, cloudy skies, lush greenery, sunsets, and sunrises, and the odd waterfall every now and then. She creates added dimension by exploring positive and negative space, varying textures, and working through layers of color. She organizes natural chaos in her own way while guiding the viewer to a hopeful and clear vision.
