Lindsey Chester's art focuses on people, places, and occasionally pets, using acrylic paint, watercolors, or graphite. The play of values is central to her work. The darks are dark and the lights are bright with high-contrast a common theme. Lindsey graduated from the Mason Gross School of Art, at Rutgers University with a BFA concentrated in drawing and printmaking. She had a 15-year career designing women's clothing in the New York Garment Center before moving to Cary, NC in 1998 with her family. She is a current board member of the Fine Arts League of Cary.
Clay is a mesmerizing, tactile medium that draws Beverly Dorland in. Because the surface treatment for the final form influences all decisions, the challenge is to honor the clay’s three dimensional characteristics and its transformation through the firing processes. In all of Dorland’s pieces, she hopes the lingering viewer discovers details and an appreciation for that moment in time spent with her work.
