Bio coming soon!

Michael Armstrong

I love to work outdoors and the Central Coast offers endless possibilities. Painting on location “en plein air” enlivens all the senses and allows the artist to experience a moment in nature on a deeper level. I especially enjoy painting coastal scenes when the Pacific is in full surge choreographing its ever changing dance between sea and shore, ancient Cypresses standing guard. In those moments time stands still, hours pass unnoticed and a sense of reverence and well being takes hold. In my work I try to bring a bit of that wonder and soothing effect that nature offers to our indoor spaces and connect the viewer with what was special about a particular place and time.

Annemarie Cassidy

A long time career in the filed of entertainment, Annemarie Cassidy has been expressing herself the last 30 years as a makeup artist/stylist, creating and building characters for various actors and entertainers in the mediums of Television, video, film photography and stage, all the while painting when time allowed. Now retired, she is discovering her self expression through painting with oils using primarily a Dutch palette.

For over a decade in Italy, Mexico and California, and now solely in California, I have been exploring the wonders of the art of fused glass. In my current sculptures— unique ensembles of colorful fused glass and various metals— I use glass fusion as a painter uses a brush to create textures, impressionistic images, folk motifs, and rhythmic fields and shapes of vibrant color. As Henri Matisse said, I want “to make my colors sing.”

I believe that in our world of chaos and turmoil, there is still a place for an art of beauty that expresses a celebration of life—affirms the possibilities of a continuing harmony, threatened as it is, in living with the natural world.

John Chappell

My artworks are conceived of the natural world…an exploration of the beautiful, mysterious and sometimes quirky elements found either buried in time or simply exposed.

Stone, steel, cement and clay are the mediums by which I express my curiosity. 

I will be featuring a cross-section of all my work including photographs, sculpture, jewelry, water fountains and more.

Fine art photographic archival prints of the Monterey Bay area and beyond. Imagery sourced from both film and digital cameras.

The real magic is not the photograph. It’s the joy and wonder in the timeless experience of observing nature and objects around us in a way that imprints a deeper understanding of who we are and what is our place, in our soul.
