Janet Dance uses oil paint mixed with beeswax on canvas as the medium for these paintings using the brush, palette knife and occasionally a heat gun to move the paint around the canvas.
Art and design have always been an integral part of my life — from creative writing, painting, fashion, and sculpture to shaping pottery on the wheel or by hand. I began studying art at an early age, and in high school, I spent countless hours in the ceramics studio.
I begin my artwork with an “automatic” process, which allows me to express sensations of consciousness through line, color and movement.
Cynthia Back's artwork celebrates landscapes. She is immersed in nature: from a window, walking in it, standing and listening to its sounds, watching shadows and colors dance across water and foliage. Come to the Bethlehem House Gallery to see her work.

My black and white prints are meticulous and technical; this tight precision encourages the viewer to look closely.
