Zakia Ahmed

The painting “Bride”, is a typical Indian subcontinent bride, shy and timid with traditional wedding outfit and jewelry. On the other hand, the style of the painting is just the opposite. It’s non traditional, very much abstract, especially in the background.  Here, the traditional theme and modern style blend to create harmony and beauty as if it were meant to be.

Meta Dunkly Arnold artbymeta.com

Meta Arnold works in assemblage and mixed media. Many of her pieces are kinetic, interactive, and narrative, designed to lead the viewer on a journey of discovery. Her recent architectural assemblages are inspired by reliquaries and shrines. Meta also teaches art to young children, with a hands-on studio approach to art history. She sees making and teaching art as a perpetual treasure hunt to find the magical hidden in the ordinary.

A retired educator at the age of 68, he is a self-taught artist but has had the opportunity to paint on sight with many other of Trenton’s fine artists.

Janet Felton

As a former graphic designer my interest in the arts in not only 2D. I love to draw as well as work in ceramics. The forms I create in porcelain are functional and refined. I also have created a whimsical population of porcelain polar bears in order to call attention to the plight of their loss of habitat. My drawings are my attempt to capture the personality/essence of the animal or subject.

I am motivated and inspired by love of the natural world, color, texture and composition. I love how my work gives me the opportunity to express myself in a variety of ways. Landscape, winter scenes, boats, rivers, seascapes, still life and architecture are my typical subjects.

My goal is to create various forms of felt, develop broad possibilities of feltmaking,  and educate the public about the hand made process of felting  using natural fibers and dyes.   My latest work with leather and gemstones is a process of taking a new path in creative process, challenges, and growing.
Hetal's art uses various mediums like pencil colors and dry pastels on paper and acrylics on canvas. Her understanding of healing colors and love of nature’s abstraction has culminated in a unique style employing a self-taught ink-drop technique which forms the surrealistic, vibrant backgrounds of her work.

HeirloomCards by Tamerra Moeller

I make iris-folded cards for all occasions. Iris folding resembles the opening of the eye's iris or the eye of a camera. Washi (Japanese paper produced in cold, running water) composes each figure. The resulting paperwork is delicate and intricate.
