Gerry O’Meara’s preferred process is throwing on the wheel with the primary intent of creating functional pieces that are both unique and aesthetically pleasing. Nature inspires her palette and surface designs. www.instagram.com/gerryomearaart/
Color and light play a strong emphasis in Michael Meissner’s work. Oil is the medium with brush and occasional palette knife work to accent and emphasize important shades, Michael covers a wide range of landscape subjects. Scenes of the Augusta, Georgia area are the main focus, but Michael like to explore the scenes of the American west with its wide vistas of red rocks and open sky. www.meissnerfineart.com
Mark Albertin has always loved working with film. There is something to be said for spending time in the darkroom and adjusting light on paper to get the desired result. With decades of experience working with film and the analog process, he began seriously taking fine art photographs in 2016. Shooting with multiple camera formats ranging from medium format to 4×5, 5×7, and 8×10, he creates large negatives which give extreme resolution, tonal range, and clarity. All processed from negative to archival print in his darkroom. He is currently working on a book that features his film work from across Georgia and South Carolina.
Elizabeth Moretz-Britt commented about her art, “The richness of growing up in my family here in Augusta is hard to overstate. As the years have gone by, I have come to realize the magnitude of what I have received. As a third generation artist I am thankful for my BFA degree in Drawing and Painting from U.G.A., drawing weekly from life models and presenting to the viewer an experience of colorful, intuitive figure paintings – joyful and energy filled.”
