ELIZABETH CASTIGLIONE – PAINTER

Elizabeth Castiglione’s painted collage series, “Landscape of Memory,” explores the concept that memories change over time. Specifically, the act of remembering something causes the memory to be altered, “reconsolidated.” Her work explores this dynamic process by linking and layering disparate scenes from her life to create new images. Painted landscapes from her Rhode Island childhood form the ground for photographs taken of her children, her ancestors, and her animals. She hopes that, through this process, her images acquire a sense of universality, a sense of both the loss and the beauty inherent in the passage of time.

Castiglione received her B.A. from Yale University in 1990, and her M.F.A. from the University of Washington in 1998. She lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with her husband, two sons, and numerous animals.

ANDREW CHRISTMAN – Painter

My paintings explore the tension between modes of visualization associated with both scientific and intuitive understanding. The techniques and methods that I employ synthesize the painterly and improvisational conventions of expressionism with the rendered and didactic conventions of zoological illustration and field guides. Drawing upon sources from both Eastern and Western naturalist traditions, my intention is to cultivate an empirical artistic approach rooted in the observational study of a subject and the excavation of the emotive memories of that same subject.

CAROL COLE – Artist

Carol Cole combines ordinary objects in artful ways…through her skill and vision, junk is transformed, becoming almost invisible in its new configurations. The viewer first appreciates the bold forms, varied textures, and rich colors of her sculptures, and only after careful looking, recognizes the repurposed familiar components.

Carol’s work is in many corporate and private collections. She maintains a large inventory of available pieces and welcomes studio visits by appointment.
