Work by Grace Lertora

Grace Lertora will be exhibiting acrylic paintings and collage ranging from still life and landscape to abstract mixed media. She states, “I am Argentine, American, and bilingual; inquisitive, spiritual, creative and energetic. As a well-traveled observer and participant in several cultures, my interests and insights have sparked work from realistic to abstract, sensitive to surreal, and oil paint to a myriad of methods and mediums. Painting is a personal journey into the inner spirit.”

Work by Carol Beth Icard

Carol Beth Icard is exhibiting her oil and cold wax paintings. Her painting process has evolved from interpretive realism to introspective abstraction. “Each time I begin a new painting I enter the process with a burgeoning sense of trust in the outcome. I have my familiar companions, of course…my vocabulary of line, form and color, developed over the years from my response to the world around me.    Open to discovery and surprise, I search for a balance between deliberate choices, intuitive marks and happenstance.”

Grace Lertora was born in Buenos Aires to a Diplomatic family, she has lived in Argentina, England and the US.  She attended American University and graduated with a BFA from Maryland University. She has been an instructor in painting, drawing and Spanish, co-founded a Buddhist Hermitage and had painting excursions to Italy, Spain and Greece, as well as all over the Southeastern US.

Carol Beth Icard is a Massachusetts native, and has lived in Landrum, SC, for 13 years. Since 1996 she has visited Italy 12 times and considers it to be her muse.
