Carol Heiman-Greene
June 22, 2024 4p – 6p RSVP required

Carol is inspired by all the aspects of nature and all of her paintings are based on personal reference. From the small and flashy hummingbirds in her back yard, to the great bison and
grizzlies in Yellowstone, Carol first uses her camera to capture all the images she uses in her
creative process.  She explains, “I must experience my subjects first hand to see their amazing
character and spirit, to make that connection to them.  Wildlife never ceases to amaze me, and
translating my wonder into my work is my driving force.”
Working in oils, Carol uses many techniques of the Old Masters, layering in an underpainting
and glazing in colors to create depth and dimension, then finishing with thicker layers of colors
to bring her paintings to life.

Patricia Prescot Sueme
July 20, 2024 4p – 6p, RVSP Required

Pastel brings a freedom that allows Patty to devote time to painting almost every day. She
experiments with unusual tools and underpainting techniques with the ultimate goal of
bringing a freshness and her own point of view to this exquisite old-world medium
.  
From her more contemporary still-life to her lush & dreamy landscapes, Patty’s work harkens the viewers memories to places travelled and cues of home.

Nick Capaci
August 17, 2024 4:30p – 6:30p, RVSP Required

To Nick, the allure of Printmaking and Painting is a personal process of continual discovery. Images derive from his immediate environment, whether they are aerial view of street intersections, markings on highway dividers, skid marks from tires, or marks that people leave behind. Urban lexicon and cycles of nature play a vital role in his visual language.
He has recently developed a passion for working with fused glass taking traditional printmaking & painting processes and infusing them in his glass works.
