December 1st to 30th
Nancy Zarider-Figures in Unfamiliar Places
Until recently, she lived for ten years in Bangkok, Thailand. She now resides in Sharon, CT. Nancy is intrigued by the process of experimentation, by the mixture of color, texture and stroke, and by the intersection of abstract elements in meaningful figurative expression.
Joey Sage Jablonski
Joey Sage Jablonski is a ceramic artist in the northwest corner of Connecticut who creates wheel thrown pottery and sculptural clay works incorporating themes from nature. She says, “The actual process of working in clay makes me feel as if I’m touching the ground and touching the sky at the same time.“ Sharing these works celebrating nature, having them become part of a home-someone’s daily life, is her greatest satisfaction.

Diane Schapira has been a potter for 50 years. She makes functional pottery, mostly on a potter’s wheel, for use in our homes. It has always been very satisfying to her that the things she makes become part of other people’s households and routines.
Karen Culbreth is a practicing artist living in the town of North East. She recently retired from her 30 year career in Art Education at the Pine Plains Central school District. The works on exhibit reflect memories and Visionscapes. Unlike dreams, visions are scripted efforts to effect change; something that conveys a type of revelation. Visions can be linked to memories, with images based perhaps on remembering things.
