About the Artists:
Mary Barnes is striving to convey the emotional moment of nature and her experience in nature through her art. Whether representational or abstract, her art is based on memory, discovered through process and conveys her dedication to the natural world.
Bruce Bulger notes that vibrance is often correlated with color. Bruce is interested in vibration something outside of color. The vibration of drawing, the aliveness of it. Vibration is the action of being alive.
Peggy de Wolf is a retired sociologist who divides her time between Princeton, N.J., and Southwest Harbor, Maine. Her watercolors are inspired by the scenic Maine coastal rocks and waters.
