Lorraine Agri says: "I like to work with traditional and non traditional techniques, combined with painting & printmaking, experimenting with concepts, color and contrasting materials. My art is eclectic and deals with events that influence my emotions. For me the act of painting becomes cathartic. Visual metaphors encourage metamorphosis; works change in the process of creating them. My paintings and prints feature abstractions of realistic and imaginary subjects." Lorraine attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Mass College of Art Boston. She is membership director for the CT Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art.

  Virginia Zic writes: "Elements of the landscape are abstracted in a very individual way in my drawings and paintings. Color and dynamic shape patterns reflect an inner force or energy that is intended to immerse and engulf the viewer." Subtleties of color, hue, and dramatic qualities of light become energizing factors of the monumentality and enigmatic essence in the boulders projecting from within the earth's surface -- a mood of awe and mystery is distilled in these quiet places, revealing universal images deep within the psyche. Ms. Zic is Professor Emerita at Sacred Heart University, where she established the Department of Art and Design and taught the both Fine Arts and Graphic Design. She received an MA in Painting and Drawing from Villa Schifanoia in Florence, Italy, and an M.FA in Advertising Design from Syracuse University.
