Florence Moonan, best known for her colorful abstract acrylic paintings, will be showing charcoal drawings using methods of mark making taught at Bunker Hill Studio workshops by renowned painter, Pat Martin. She will also be exhibiting dramatic poured works in oil. These techniques, when applied by Moonan’s bold movements, show ingenuity and a fresh inventiveness that makes the works in this show grab your attention.

"Northern Lights"
by Carol Sanzalone

Carol Sanzalone, working in watercolor and acrylic on paper and canvas, captures the graphic impact of light and shadows to create surfaces and color patterns that enrich the everyday images that inspire her work. Her artistic journey has included many years of experimenting with color and texture, and these recent innovative paintings will be a major part of the work included in this show.

Both New Jersey natives, Moonan and Sanzalone, find the diverse cultural, historical and natural beauty of the region continually stimulates their creative endeavors. This is evident when viewing the two artists' work side by side. Sanzalone's paintings respond to the environment, while Moonan's works are largely drawn on autobiographical experiences.
