Featuring Richard Gombar,
" I am an American painter of my environment. Where once art needed nature to survive, we now need art to help nature survive. While not politically motivated, in a sense-- because I paint nature, my work is a political statement. I paint to capture beauty, to hold forever a passing moment, to memorialize that which may be fleeting, or in the case of barns and industrial sites, falling. If my paintings, pastels and drawings help more people become aware of what may be potentially lost, can invoke a sense of wonder as in childhood, and can be emotionally moving and provoking, then a statement with a profound impact may be the result. It is a search for the truth without sentimentality. My work is of nature, but just as important, it is about painting, color, structure. The images are about Romanticism, transcendentalism and pure emotion. I try to make the immense intimate".
Scott Snyder's beautiful photographs
The light and poetry of image and word
In this show Scott explores the meeting place that emerges when images are paired with word, poetry, and text allowing the inspiration and music of word and the color and light of place to merge, mingle and relate.

Loren Howard artist born in
Windsor, Vermont and at the age of five my family moved across the Connecticut River over the famous Cornish/Windsor Bridge, to Cornish, New Hampshire. We settled in the area where the Cornish Colony of Artists thrived in the early nineteen hundreds. One of my favorite landscape painters, Willard Metcalf, was a member of that group of artists.
Maxfield Parrish also lived and painted in that area for many years. The historic and beautifully renovated country home of the sculptor, Augustus Saint Gaudens, with many of the sculptor’s works, is also there and is visited by hundreds of art lovers every year.
After graduating from High School in Windsor, Vermont, I enlisted in the United States Navy. The G.I. Bill helped me get through college at a small University in Bemidji, Minnesota. I received a Bachelor’s Degree with a Major in Art and a Minor in English. I did graduate work in painting and pottery at Saint Cloud University and sculpture and drawing at summer workshops at the University of Minnesota.
I taught art for twenty five years and, when I retired, I set up a pottery and did that for several years. During that time I continued to paint and four years ago I stopped the pottery altogether and since then I have devoted all of my time to landscape painting. Needless to say painting is my true passion. It is both challenging and rewarding.Click here to see the local TV interview at YCN https://ycnnow.com/2023/06/29/loren-howard-art-show/
Barbara Hunting artist
To my way of thinking, Art need not be a mysterious entity. Art should make the viewer happy, aware, contemplative….
When I paint, I escape into the recesses of my mind. I find joy, laughter, and happiness.
It’s not rocket science, people.!
New Artists on Exhibit
Featuring Alan Zola Shulman
Exhibit Opening SUNDAY May 7th
Shulman was brought up by his parents to have a deep love for fine art. After touring art galleries and being exposed to the masters he fell in love with ....." Those latter artists excited me. I fell in love with Van Gogh’s swirls of land and sky, Picasso’s “misplaced” eyes, De Chirico’s enigmatic city squares, Dali’s dreamscapes, Matisse’s unpredictable palette, Magritte’s avant-guard humor, and Kandinsky’s energetic splashes of solids .
