25 ARTISTS

Laszlo Bagi
My serigraphs are a combination of visual memories, color impressions, personal emotion, and experience, put on paper with the hope of evoking a response within the viewer. The art is planned and drawn; then each print is hand printed by me — one color, one sheet at a time. Each print is unique — the result of a slow, careful process.
Harry Boardman
I live and work in a former cigar factory in Souderton PA with my wife Heather and our dog Crusher. We took it from a rough dirty shell and turned it into a warm inviting space full of art. Most of my work is done in oil pastels: messy, rich, and a unique blend of drawing/painting. I also paint in oils and draw in ink. Stop in to check out my workspace and lots of paintings of skies, trees, rolling fields, barns, and industrial sites.
Nancy  Brockmon
After my husband died, I started painting again, primarily in acrylics and pastels. Mostly inspired by our travels in Maine, I have concentrated on recreating memories of the scenic coastline and ever-changing sea. In addition, I have painted local scenes in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. Occasionally, I will paint critters such as birds and animals. My work is grounded by the inspiration I find in the textures, colors and shapes found in nature. Rocks, tree bark, leaves and water, in their many incarnations fire up the synapses in my brain. Memories flood in and I find myself with my paintbrush in hand.
Laura Demme
I use feminine imagery to express intangible feelings and situations. My work uses a combination of mixed media, found object and ceramics. I fire most of my ceramic work in the Japanese Raku Style. This creates a rich patina and gives my work an ancient feel. My painting are abstractions, in acrylic on canvas or encaustic on board , both contain collaged areas and texture. I switch between mediums to allow for fluidity in expression , one inspiring the other , keeping me moving forward.
Jennifer Domal
I build small sculptures nestled in custom shadow boxes utilizing natural materials like egg shells, wood and real gold leaf with repurposed items such as vintage jewelry, lace and paper. The artworks are much like talismans or relics, unearthed from antiquity, with windows or portals giving the viewer access to their secrets.
Leslie Ehrin
My work is primarily influenced by Nature; landscapes and seascapes dominate my oeuvre. For years, I painted landscapes of Tuscany, but more recently, I have been painting abstracted landscapes and seascapes from Alaska and the Caribbean, as I am fascinated by water. I work in Acrylic and Mixed Media as well as Photography to get inspiration for my work. I love to travel and much of my art is inspired by places I have visited. I also paint abstractly, using experimental acqueous media techniques.
Natalie Eisen
Painting and drawing has always been an escape for me. I discovered that I no longer had to live in the real world. I could visit places real or imagined and forget whatever it was that was troubling me. While working, all sense of time disappears and I am only in the place on the canvas. I prefer painting landscapes and natural things. Nature is always changing yet consistent and dependable in its beauty. I am inspired and uplifted by the changes, colors and shapes surrounding me in the outdoors. Viewing and painting these vistas take me to a place that is always rewarding, never disappointing. I want the viewer to feel like they are actually there on site, looking at what I have witnessed. I want them to hear the leaves blowing in the breeze, smell the flowers and feel the temperature. I paint in acrylics but was trained using oil paints. After developing an allergy to turpentine I switched to acrylics. I don’t use glazes to achieve depth, I use color and gel medium. Each subject touches me in a unique way. Some images are more realistic, some more abstract. It’s my way of allowing the viewer to create their own story about the painting.
Theresa Heidig Rooney
I am a painter and printmaker. I use oils and acrylics and sometimes a combination of the two mediums. For many of my paintings I use fish bowls as a starting point, creating movement, texture and vivid color with a pallet knife. My prints are experimental, creating images through monotype and collagraph.

Stuart Kinckner
I am a metal artist with a focus on sculptures and upcycled materials. I enjoy using masonry nails for my wall sculptures. I create sculptures, functional art, and furniture.
Carole Kyle
I have developed my uniquely designed and crafted handbags and totes over the last 18 years. Each functional handbag is composed individually, using a coordinating collection of durable upholstery textiles, many with water resistant features. All of the bags have top zippers, inside pockets, reinforced bases with feet. As the Artist, I sign and number each bag.
Stefania Luciani
Public Art That which surrounds us shapes us. Public art serves as a vessel for culture, community, and compassion, and the human spirit flourishes in its embrace. As a proponent and purveyor of public arts, Stefania's work aims to sow these seeds of prosperity, inspiring next generations. Stefania’s meticulously crafted clay works are fired using an old Japanese pottery technique, Raku. During this the clay is removed from the kiln at red-hot temperatures, and then placed in containers of highly combustible materials. During the ignition that follows, the glaze interacts with smoke and fire; each piece a concert of man and nature. By Stefania Luciani
Robyn Miller
I create my mosaics starting with my own ceramic tiles that are in inspired from nature and reflect my passion for color, texture, shapes and patterns. I merge my clay pieces with repurposed shards of dishes, vintage knick-knacks, beads, buttons, and found objects. My goal is to create a bas-relief mosaic using aligned fragments that bring joy to the viewer and me, and expresses my personal aesthetics. My decision-making is intuitive and the theme begins to speak to me as I compose my mosaics. A life-long obsession for collecting vintage jewelry, decorative multicultural textiles and patterns infuses my art.
Dale Roberts
I am a painter working from observable reality with a desire to reach viewers on an emotional level. I strive to find and amplify the poetic in the everyday and to depict images in an unusual, often playful manner. I love to draw and paint the subjects that move me and hope to engage the viewer to peer more deeply into life. I work in many mediums, including gouache, egg tempera, silverpoint and pastel.
Kathy Robinson
I create my silk wearables using a combination of gutta, soy wax and silk dyes. Each piece is an original designed and constructed by me.My mixed media paintings also can contain wax, along with acrylics and inks on rice paper and/or canvas.
David Rozek
Pandemic Design Studio, established 2017 and located outside Philadelphia, PA., USA, is an award winning, published, and patent holding design and manufacturing enterprise specializing in innovative, organic, and contemporary ceramics, lighting, and furniture. Our product lines, though different in material aesthetics, are all deeply rooted in the idea that the pieces make the whole and the whole is alive and changing. For the Montgomery County Studio Tour, we will be showcasing our full ceramics studio where we produce The Node Collection. In production, we use very sophisticated slip casting molds that were digitally designed and machined and boast the only “casting tower” in the region. All studio innovation was done in house, none of our work is contracted out.

Jerry Schurr
With the advent of powerful computer programs, digital photography, and an extensive library of natural images I am now creating a visual representation of the myriad interrelated patterns of Nature’s symmetries. The insect world is a bilateral heaven, frogs and other amphibians express their colorful protective patters symmetrically, flowers, ferns, cacti, grasses, tree leaves and fungi, reptiles, birds, fish….the list goes on forever in terms of unique expressions of symmetrical patterning. Our own feelings of health and beauty have to do with balance and symmetry. Mother Nature has shown us her way to the infinity of perfection in every one of her creations. My works are all celebratory and similar in structure to the Far Easts' Mandalas.

My jewelry is hand fabricated and each piece is unique and one of a kind. I work in sterling silver and brass with precious and semi-precious stones. My jewelry reflects my past as a handweaver and textile designer through the multiple textures, colors, and the interlacing of wire with gemstones that are a part of each piece.

My paintings are densely patterned, focused on color, filled with yearning. I am captivated by the earth’s linear quality, the moment of place where sky touches earth and what happens in those remaining spaces that eventually arrive at our feet. I chisel away at the natural world, patching together bits and pieces, composing and rebuilding the landscape. Repeated fragments, dissected skies, slabs of earth. Separating the land with paint, my intent is to look beyond and through. Capturing moments, glimpses of creation, landscapes, the order of atmosphere and the outside world. Its central formations and ecosystems, fields stumbled upon or driven by- caught in a glance; newly trampled ground on previously unchartered territory. Giving the viewer recollection- a sense of having been there. This reminiscence also gravitates towards objects that inhabit a past. I attempt to capture their wistfulness, the nostalgic quality that they hold so dear. A celebration of their existence; a commemoration of remembrance. My work is about the recognition of the subtleties of life and environment. These are the moments and pieces i attempt to capture and recreate: accumulation and repetition, intricacies found in the structure of organic objects, the concept of time and space through light and layers.
