Martin Woodard draws his inspiration from the Blue Ridge Mountains and the surrounding countryside. His oil paintings embrace shapes, colors, shadows, and the compelling compositions providing thoughtful interpretations of nature.
Patricia Brennan has dedicated herself to stained glass for the past 40 years. Nature is the inspiration for her work; she draws from observing the surroundings of her home in Rappahannock County. Creating with color and light is the joy in each piece that she makes. She utilizes many techniques in glass to create her work: silk screening and hand painting with traditional stained glass paints, etching, mosaics, fusing, and kiln worked glass are all used in tandem to create her unique style of stained glass.
Heidi Morf loves color; it is a common thread in her art. She works with glass in many forms: mosaic, lamp work. bead jewelry, fused glass and stained glass, and occasionally polymer clay and fabric dying.
