The Artists

Tina Cantelmi

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.


Janet Dance

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.


Thomas Kelly

Kelly is an award winning New Jersey based painter. With more than 200 original paintings collected, his work has a signature style which has its roots in expressionism.


Marlow Rodale

Marlow views his oil paintings as an exploration of memory. To him, painting is an interpretation of the mechanics of the mind, how memories are formed.


Josh Schwartz

Josh Schwartz uses materials with historical relevance to both aspects of American history to create pieces with functionality.


Ward Van Haute

Ward Van Haute's energetic brushwork combined with a bold color palette serves to enhance the relationship between light and pigment in his reverse glass paintings.


Marta Whistler

Marta Whistler attributes the strength of her color use and the kinetic dynamism of her form to influences as diverse as Native American art motifs, Slavic iconography, and the brilliance of color in Central American costumes.
