About the Artists
Barbara Reynolds – Dedham, MA
“I have always been fascinated by rocks, trees, and skies. Capturing light and color are challenges that keep me engrossed in the process of painting. Seeing a watercolor scene appear before me is a thrill. I want my paintings to provide the viewer with emotion, a feeling of place and time, a sense of intimacy and serenity.”
One of my favorite places to paint is Star Island, in the Isles of Shoals off Portsmouth, New Hampshire. I am indebted to that place for inspiring my love of painting.
Joan Onofrey – Needham, MA
Collages have always intrigued me, especially those created of paper. There is a freedom and energy involved with the process of tearing and cutting the paper into shapes. The images created by layering these pieces of paper have the spontaneity of their own. The patterns, textures and colors combined with torn edges of paper brings lively way of focusing my ideas in my artwork.
As a collage artist, I am often inspired by the children I teach and by my observations of nature. Themes such as animals, plants, landscapes and sports come to life with bits of recycled and repurposed paper, along with a whimsical point of view.
