Ann Vandervelde Focusing on color, line, shadow, and negative and positive space, Ann Vandervelde paints magnifications of nature. With studios in Seattle and the San Juan Islands, she employs a rich color palette that reflects her Washington surroundings. With acrylics, papers, and oil pastels, she “maps the earth on canvas in an attempt to answer questions about green and urban space, climate, sound, light, water, and our own not insignificant footprint” here on earth. However, her own inspirations aside, she simply hopes to “reach the viewers’ life experiences” through her abstract paintings.
Vandervelde has shown her work in exhibitions throughout the United States and in Vancouver, B.C. Her work is held in public and private collections, including the American Diabetes Association in Ohio and the U.S. Government “Art in Embassies” Program in Washington, D.C.

Richard Wiegmann Through drawings of seashores and other natural habitats, Richard Wiegmann examines the intricacies, structures, and metaphors of nature. He works from memory, imagination, sketches, and photographs, often on a translucent polyester film that allows him to experiment with varied drawing media and techniques. Wiegmann views the natural world as simultaneously temporary and transcendent, noting that even in our â€œincreasingly technological culture,â€? it is difficult to experience nature without noticing small details like sound, texture, or light.
Richard Wiegmann received his MFA from the Claremont Graduate School in California. Over the past fifty years, he has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions, and various public and private collections around the country hold his work.
