Cheryl Costella ~ Focus on Lighthouses
"I am a Sunday afternoon potter, who loves glazes, and the process of creating in clay. My current passion is to develop sparkling luster glazes that enhance my sculptural and sprigged ceramic work. Asian themes, especially Quan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy and sea mist figures of a neoclassical style are subjects of my current work."
Maurice Walcott, Woodcarver
Thomas Goodson, Silversmith
Patricia E. Keefe

She is actively involved with the Coastal Arts League, The Sculptor's Guild, The Women's Caucus for Art and several other art organizations.
Linda Curtis, Watercolorist
The act of painting is meditative for me, and often results in a painting which engenders a peaceful feeling in others. That feeling is my intent. firstname.lastname@example.org
It may seem cliché, but the older I become, the faster time seems to pass. My work is an attempt to encapsulate moments that will never be repeated in exactly the same way. My background is as an acrylic painter which was my chosen medium in art school. About 10 years ago I discovered watercolor, and without taking a class, I joyfully began experimenting. Now water-media are my focus, since I believe I can capture the transitory nature of my subjects by using techniques which are available to me primarily in these media. Glazing is a technique I use frequently in order to give vibrancy and glow to my subjects. I enjoy hard edge in juxtaposition to areas of “wet on wet”. I believe my fascination with color intensity is a counterbalance to being raised in the gray “coal region” of Pennsylvania. Linda L. Curtis www.paintingsbylindacurtis.us
