“It has been the aim of my work to make visible the invisible influences upon us, while being deeply interested in the spiritual side of life and highly motivated by beauty. As my art progresses, that mission has become more centered. Now I aim to also listen.”
I listen to that wee, small voice.
I listen to the loud, thunderous roar.
I listen to the voice of the birds.
I listen to the breeze in the trees.
I attempt to listen to the voice of God in and around us all.” — Barbara Desrosiers

ONE HECK OF AN ART SHOW
By Jerry & Cher Hanzl
Everyone knows Jerry and Cher. They are the couple who do that crazy stuff with their photography. Their images are always such a fantasy. It’s like they are painting with photography on a digital canvas. Jerry joined forces with Cher when she retired and together, they are true surrealists at heart. Their surrealscapes are fantasy worlds meant to be traveled through with both the eyes and the mind.

No longer safe to work with the chemicals used in printmaking Esta has entered the realm of fiber art, combing both fiber and printmaking. This work is the expression of my desire to keep on working.

Kenneth Castoro is a self-taught Photographer based out of the beautiful Space Coast of Florida. His focus is to show off bits of the world we live in that people rarely see or showcase the familiar in new ways. As a photographic purist, instead of editing an image to fit his vision, he finds wonder in the real world, no radical image editing needed. Whether it’s seeking a viewpoint everyone else thought was too hard to reach or shooting a common subject – but maybe lit only by starlight – everything presented in his images actually existed as a moment in time.
A native of Brooklyn, New York, Renee Schwadron Lewis always loved the combination of texture and color. The confluence of cultures in NYC was especially an influential part of her life. Lewis received a B.F.A. in Fabric Design from the School of Art at Syracuse University. As part of the University’s Foreign Studies Program she studied Art History in Amsterdam, Netherlands. In her focus on Fabric Design (which included silk screening and weaving), Lewis developed an eye and proficiency with repetitive patterns – which continues to be a theme in her current work.
Her Post-Impressionist style drawings are created with a combination of oil crayons, color pencils and pastels – producing bold, stunning colors and creative themes capturing the colorful nature of women. At the core of her work are women – empowered, strong – yet vulnerable – linked to others, each other – and beautiful from within.
