Patti Allen Akesson started dancing professionally when she was six years old. Her love of movement was very much part of her identity. As she explored other creative expressions in the visual arts, she integrated her love of movement and dance in how she made paintings, prints, sculptures and encaustics. Her love of innovation in dance is carried into the spirit of her visual work in the way she experiments and takes risks.

Barbara Nathanson’s Artist Statement: For a long time I have been drawn to the incredible variations of surfaces. Be they natural or man-made and altered by the elements, surfaces engage my imagination. I do not allude to these sources literally, but as they cumulatively affect by sensual awareness. I use color and texture to tempt the viewer’s eye and hands into an exploration of the activity on the surface of the picture plane. I hope this activity will tweak a memory of something previously seen or felt, and thus connect some of my memories to theirs.
