Carolyn Nelson Wood
She studied art at the Museum School of Fine Art/ Boston and Mass College of Art. She has shown her works in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont. While living in NH, she was on the board of the River Gallery School of Art in Brattleboro, VT and a member of the Windham Art Gallery.
Her works can be realistic, although she also working abstractly. She love the tactile pleasure and richness of the paint using color, form and line to express a mood, a feeling, even a person. The quest is similar to the tennis player seeking that “sweet spot” or the musician who achieves perfect pitch, and you as the listener instantly know it. If that happens … it is very exciting for her. She is an artist in residence at Touch Art Gallery now.
Geoffrey Halverson is a native of Cambridge Massachusetts, with family roots in France. As a young artist he was influenced by the detail and craft of the old masters but has, in recent years, developed a more expressive style. Geoffrey studied at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington DC, the Museum School in Boston, and with Tom Ouellette in Boston. He is an artist in residence at Touch Art Gallery now.
She started to paint when she was four years old, and she studied her art under apprenticeship of the most famous and supreme masters of Iran. In the beginning she started to explore the world of art with watercolor and colored pencil. Then she continued with graphite pencil, pen, ink, crayons, charcoal, pastel, gouache, acrylic and oil colors. she has started to works on oil painting professionally since 2000.
