Lilian Voorhees's luminous oil paintings, on canvas and panel, are abstract "fictional figurations," which, she notes, "evoke many of the images I invented in the past. I combine the images in my memory and daily perceptions with my painting process," she continued. "I construct, deconstruct and then reconstruct the picture plane."  Following a move from New York City several years ago, her subjects, and inspiration, are a composite of the environment that surrounds her on the rural Hartwick farm she shares with artist/designer husband, James Herman —the wetlands, woodlands, hedgerows, meadows, the variety of botanical forms, the light, the season, the hour. "Here I am surrounded by nature, much of which evokes many of the images I invented in the past," she noted. "The contemplative life that I have as a result of this move has allowed the work to deepen and grow. "  Even as a child Voorhees observed and interacted with nature: her family lived on an atypical small farm with livestock and gardens on the Philadelphia Main Line, and the children helped with chores. And, early on, she began art-making.  Voorhees attended the Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, and counts the 19th-century oeuvre of William Morris as an early influence. She was represented by the Andre Zarre Galley in the Chelsea district when she lived and worked in New York City. She first exhibited her paintings locally in a two-person show at The Art Garage in 2016.

Robert Seward has not devoted his life to art making, having been a professor of media studies in Tokyo for 24 years, but he did study ceramics at Parsons School of Design in New York City and at the Philadelphia College of Art.
Post-academia, he turned his attention to clay, experimenting with processes (encaustics and burnishing) and substances (paper and fiber) that produce complex textures, making powerful free-standing pieces he describes as biomorphic.
"I'm interested in what materializes by combining various techniques," he says.
His influences: Anthony Caro, Peter Zumthor, David Smith, Barbara Hepworth, Carlo Zauli; also, the traditional Japanese ceramic aesthetic.

David Wilson creates award-winning, large-scale glass commissions around the country for universities, government entities, corporations, churches, synagogues, metro stations—even the Newark airport. Past clients include Merck & Co., Inc, Port Authority of NY & NJ, General Services Administration (GSA), Wash., DC, College of the Holy Cross, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and Washington DC WMATA, as well as many private clients. He works with architects such as Kevin Roche and John Dinkleroo (CT) and Graham Gund (Boston.) His most recent projects were in Wisconsin (2016) and Rochester (2017.) Wilson also maintains an active studio practice with a focus on his quirky "box art," often a socio-political commentary.
The Corning Museum of Glass Rakow Research Library and Rowan University Archives and Special Collections, Glassboro, NJ, among other institutions, are in the process of acquiring his work for their permanent research collections.

Wilson employs techniques that vary boldly. The 7-foot-tall screen in this show comprises mouth-blown pieces of painted and stained glass that "float" within the wooden structure. One of his many design awards references his " elegant and deliberate juxtaposition of geometry and color [that] results in a brilliant melding of tradition with contemporary artistic and architectural intent." (GSA, Wash., D.C.)

Wilson, now based in South New Berlin, studied at the Middleboro College of Art in the U.K., with post-grad studies in London at Central School for Art and Crafts. He was awarded a U.K. National Design Diploma (N.D.D.). He often works with Trevor Wilson, Hobart, NY, an artist who is fabricator for his designs and is also his son.
