With a growing list of awards, shows, publications and teaching experience, Laurie is totally passionate about her painting.  I stopped in her gallery, studio and teaching space only to find Laurie inviting me in to explore her world.  Her creations hang proud with a variety of subject matters from watercolors to oils. There was a class in session and everyone was willing to share their craft.  With an intimate setting, her downtown Westerly, RI store frontage is the right setting to create, learn and just be…

You don’t need to spend a lot of time with John to know his passion for art. Thank goodness we met! While visiting Booth Bay Harbor in Maine, I checked out the Gold|Smith Gallery were I discovered his work. I was moved by his rhythm and bold colors he created in his ‘Classic Jazz’ series. Emotions run high and he is constantly working on pieces; some take years to complete. Life emulates with his creations and the sounds of music shine through. Each piece is classic, like the artist. His knowledge of art, culture, being in the moment and conversation had me intrigued. Splitting his time in studios in Maine and Italy have unique surroundings and a wide breadth of creations he continues to work on… Bravo!

I love Jade’s energy and how it transfers into her work. With hints of female warriors (and other cosmic beings…) you can almost feel the powers within. With strong hues of reds, black and white, the views take me on a journey into a comic-like world. She is expressive, creative and dynamic all wrapped up in one. Check out her work to explore your own reality.
