JUDY CRANE

Judy Crane has been a full time professional artist for over 30 years. Having worked pastel and watercolor, she presently works primarily in Oils. She paints in a manner that encourages the viewer to see the subject as the eye sees a scene, not in photographic focus, but with atmosphere and depth of field.  She captures the sophisticated and lush color of nature and of our man made environment, and presents them in a believable and exciting way.  For the observer, her work conveys a feeling of "being there".
In this Travel exhibit her beautiful colors and play of light highlight vistas from Croatia to the Greek Islands. Judy is widely collected in NC and has been in many solo exhibits including her dramatic large NC landscape canvases at Raleigh's Performing Arts Center in 2012. In 2014 and 2015, she was juried into Women Painters of the Southeast.

(PSA) Signature Member, Pastel Society of America.

She spends a lot of time on the coast and has has traveled extensively in France providing her with opportunities to photograph many cloud formations and ports along the way for her subject matter. Diana has won many awards since 2004, at least eight 1st and 2nd Place awards combined in juried exhibits regional to national. She recently won the Strathmore Award in the 2013 NC Statewide pastel Exhibit at the Hickory Museum of Art.

CECILIA GUITARTE

Oil paintings by Cecilia Guitarte have a clean graphic style with a keen eye for lighting nuances and a focus on everyday subjects elevated to high art. From sliced fruit and vegetables to mist-shrouded trees, serene skies and whimsical still lifes, Cecilia’s distinct detailed imagery stands apart “My paintings are based on photos taken around my home and on my travels. I see lines and shapes, darks and lights and try to accent what has caught my attention. I have a very logical mind, so I like to simplify the objects and the colors that I use; I liked clean lines and a smooth surface” It's no wonder Cecilia gets juried into numerous prestigious shows, including the Raleigh Fine Arts show judged by NC Museum Director Larry Wheeler and the N.E.W Show juried exhibit at VAE. She won 1st place in the 2012 Small Treasures exhibit at the Cary Gallery and in 2011 won Honorable Mentions in the Fine Arts League of Cary annual exhibit and the NC State Fair Juried Exhibit. She is in numerous private and corporate art collections both local and in her home country, Argentina.

SHARON DIGIULIO

Sharon DiGiulio as one of the top workshop coordinators in US Today working for years at national art store chain, Jerry'sArtarama. As a result, she is surrounded by hundreds of the countrys' top instructors.
Heavily influenced by the talent surrounding her, DiGiulio now has no choice but to work in a mixed media fashion. “It seems I learn something new about a different medium weekly and I just have to try it! I dare myself to use every technique I can think of from transfers, to watercolor to basic drawing, and printmaking to encaustics, to painting and stitching in creating my acrylic collages. The choices are endless. Now my challenge is to put it all together with my collection of photos and make it work. I read a ton of books and pull from childhood experiences and memories to embellish my work.”
