Courtney Applequist
My work draws inspiration from the seen world.  I seek the use of found geometries and colors to depict the feeling of a moment, finding a degree of tension: beauty and dissonance.  I work primarily in oil paint, interjecting charcoal, pastel and other media as the moment requires.  The thoughts I start with are nothing more than a beginning, and I am driven to a new place as the piece unfolds.

Sheila Blake
I’ve been a painter all my life. Creating the illusion of space and light with paint is what thrilled me from the beginning, and it thrills me now.  I went to Cooper Union in New York, lived in California, then moved to Durham, where I taught art at Duke University.  After moving here I taught at the Corcoran.  Now I have a studio in Takoma Park, and keep the demands of life to a minimum so I can paint full time, every day.  There’s so much in these paintings: the light, the mood.  The subterranean menace.
