Pam White has been drawing, painting and photographing since she could hold a pencil. She paints and draws what she sees in the most real colors she can find. Her photographs are sensual and evocative studies of dance and dancers.
Pam grew up on the Missouri River surrounded by miles and miles of rolling hills, flatlands, bluffs, sink holes and huge stretches of limestone banks with caves carved by the river’s millennial movement. As soon as she could she came East where she fell in love with the silicate rocks and miles of stone walls that give New England its character.
A taste for adventure has led to the collection of four children and innumerable, completely important and necessary dogs, cats and horses that she shares with her life’s love, choreographer Paula Josa-Jones.
This past year, I’ve been busy painting the beautiful country scenery found in the hills of Dutchess and Litchfield Counties. The rich autumn colors, crystal clear lakes, rolling hills and pastures, azure skies have inspired artists for generations. Recently retired as a graphic designer and art director for over 30 years, I am now painting in acrylic on canvas. I have home studios in Sharon, CT and Brightwaters, NY.

Colleen McGuire is a Contemporary Landscape and Figurative Painter from Sharon, CT "For the past several years I have been painting New England landscapes. This work deals with the interplay of time, perception and memory. I have created a series that demonstrate a strong light quality, sometimes in the day and other times at twilight. I am interested in capturing a moment in time, an everyday image. I find my inspiration while walking through the countryside where I live, vacationing with my family on the coast, or simply looking out my window at night and absorbing the colors of the night sky or the snow falling."
