Amber Fryxell, printmaking / artist books
A daughter of a sailor, I grew up without a home, borrowing lives and traditions of any town the ship docked. I found comfort in collecting books and music, looking for the quiet in every room. Years later I find myself questioning the difference between being lonely and being alone. It would only make sense that I would turn to my old love, the book, to begin this conversation.
Laura Weinberg, acrylic
Laura Goldman Weinberg is an independent artist who allows the creative energy of life to dance through her onto the canvas. Her colorful expressions illustrate an emphasis on value contrasts which create wonderful linear movement and patterns.

Although I create without intention of a specific outcome, generally, I always try to encourage others to be self-expressive, to create, to do what they can with what they have (you don’t have to be wealthy or ‘well educated’ to express yourself), and to let whatever may be inside of them out into the open to help themselves grow and perhaps help oters see things they might not have otherwise, and if nothing else to have fun!
April — May
