Earth, Fire, Water and Air by George Hughes: Paintings inspired from U.S. National Forests;
George Hughes is a graduate of VCU School of Art. Growing up in the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains and living in the heart of the fan while going to school created certain man vs. nature conflicts that produced a love for the landscape. The instantaneous expression capable with music was a great influence for the impressionistic style that was developed to enhance the creative flow of the mark and the intensity of color that can only be accessed with the natural free flow of landscape painting.

SCRIPTS by Janet Visser "Everything we see is representational, if it portrays specific, recognizable physical objects. The show Scripts is pure abstract which is rendered with words, patterns and Color. Abstract art should have the potential to be so powerful that it will keep the conscious distractions to a minimum. My goal is to open the viewer's mind, let in the energy and spirit of the painting, and allow it to dance with their psyche.
