Mary Harold

 

About

Mary has loved being behind the lens since the age of 9 when she got her first Kodak Brownie camera. Her focus in fine art photography  is to capture the absurd, obvious, decay, and beauty that others do not see. B/W, color, HDR, light, dark – there is always something to be captured.

Mary’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the region. Awards have been received from The Flinn Gallery in Greenwich and the Rowayton Arts Center. Her work as also been shown at The Katonah Museum, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Fairfield Museum and History Center, The Bendheim Gallery, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Westport Arts Center, Carriage Barn, Soho Photo Gallery, Ferguson Library, Wilton Library, Ridgefield Library and many private collections.  Her work has also been published in many newspapers and magazines. Presently, she is the Co-President of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and is a member of the Westport Arts Center, Westport Arts Collective, Rowayton Arts Center, Greenwich Arts Society, and the Carriage Barn.

 

Artist Statement

I express my artistic vision through photography and view the world as a visual treat with its colors, textures, patterns and abstractions.  Behind the lens is the base negative that transforms and metamorphosizes into the song of what my heart sees.  The computer has transformed photography into a revolutionary art form with all of its complexities.

Artist Statement

The seashell is a timeless symbol that for me evokes playfulness of time spent on the beach. The illustrative works I create are titled to amuse the viewer. I especially enjoy using 'play on words' to title them. They are 'little celebrations' of art. My walks on the beach and forest on soft grey days provide me with inspiration to create monoprint images showing the subtle colors and fleeting moment that only become visible in the misty atmosphere. They are like the images created by the waves on the water edge, similar but infinitely different.

Artist Statement

As far back as I can remember, creativity and storytelling has been a part of my life. Whether painting, mixed media design, or taking pictures, I love the process of creating and telling stories through my work.  Through my artwork I have learned to embrace the chaos, mess, and noise and focus on the perfectly, imperfect details of everyday life.

Veronica Hofstetter

 

About

I am an artist living in Westport, Ct. where I was raised and now where I am thankful to be raising my family.  Art has always been an important and integral part of my life.  One of my first vivid memories was being three or four years old and waking up in the morning, grabbing crayons and markers and setting about to draw all over my bedroom walls, as tall as my arms could reach- happy, colorful and towering, people, houses, trees and flowers.  Anther early memory, is of a favorite childhood past-time: making crayon rubbings, layered in multi colors, of a circular relief pattern on the glass cabinet windows in my parent living room. Fortunately for my parents I did those drawings on paper. 

Throughout my education at the University of Colorado at Boulder and at Fairfield University in Connecticut, and at the Silvermine School of Art in New Canaan, Connecticut, I have studied painting, color theory, drawing, collage, jewelry making, interior design and architectural drawing. I have a background in antique restoration with a specialty in the ancient technique of water gilding.  I also own and run a Swedish antique furniture and fine art import business that in addition offers interior design services to clients.  As a founding member of The Art Studio, an art cooperative and shared work space in Westport, Ct, I co-taugh a children’s after school program called ARTPLAY for two years at The Art Studio.   Currently as a member of the Art Studio I participate and organizing group shows and workshops. Other than art, the things dearest to my heart, are my 3 growing and energetic boys, who are one, three and twelve years old, and my wonderful husband. 

 

Artist Statement

My perceptions, visually and emotionally, move me to communicate and discover, as an artist in a visual language. Symbiotically, a fundamental desire to create and work with my hands, incorporates both mental and physical action: uniting inspiration and emotion with the physical action of creating, and in turn a catharsis of mind, body and spirit bring together the physical/material world with the etherial/emotional world.  

When I am working with collage, paint and mixed media, I am processing form, shape, and composition.  I seek, I experiment and I communicate though freedom and release as well as control and tension as I physically gather, collect, cut, assemble, paint, gild, scrape, glue, layer, edit, arrange and rearrange compositions while at the same time considering color, relationship, balance and texture.  

Through the mining, collecting and further categorizing of materials from the everyday to be later used in my work, my material seeks to translate the beauty of the mundane and thus is transformative. The layers of discarded paper are artifacts of daily life and form part of a larger conversation that comes together with paint, paper, glue and often gold leaf.  In the process of making a collage, these elements express conceptual and abstract ideas.  Sometimes asking or answering a question or sometimes articulating a feeling or idea.

Artist Statement

My ceramic sculpture takes the form of wall pieces and vessels in porcelain.
My recent series of works, Becoming Imperfect, are about what it means to grow. It seems to me that works of art and living things are both born with the perfection of an untested plan. As they grow, they are nurtured and challenged by natural forces and ideas beyond their initial capacity. The struggle to accommodate challenges compels development and change. In departing from the blueprint, art and living things become richer in history and visual complexity. The perfect is transformed to a more significant imperfect. Ideas about growth and transformation affect the way that I physically manipulate the clay and point toward the meaning of my work
