“Exploring the Colors of Nature” showcases the artistry of pastel painter, Teresa Brunson and fused glass artist, Maureen Storey.  Teresa is a pastel painter who specializes in landscapes in her artwork; Maureen is a newcomer to the Loft Gallery and recently launched an encore career in her chosen art form at the Loft. 
Teresa Brunson – Meet the award-winning pastel painter Teresa T. Brunson and experience her distinguished landscape paintings that captivate the heart. Teresa travels across the country to unearth quiet, engaging scenes from varied terrain and outdoor adventures that create aspect and depth to her paintings. Bright colors mix with intriguing line work to illicit details in fascinating ways. Viewers are drawn into perspectives of nature as Teresa gives voice to scenery that result in a calmness within as if having witnessed nature directly. To see more, please visit her website.  

Maureen Storey – Maureen Storey is the owner and glass artist of storeyweaver designs in glass, LLC and is a Virginia Juried Artisan in fused glass of the Artisans Center of Virginia.  Maureen’s first 35-year career as a PhD nutrition scientist was fulfilling as she held executive-level positions in the food industry, academia and trade associations.  But in the rare moments of spare time, she discovered a joyful outlet for her creative energy through fused and stained glass. To see more, please visit her website.

Into the Woods

Working in collaboration, George Jones, III and Gloria Benedetto-Brazelton have created a journey, “Into the Woods” at The Loft Gallery in November.
Working with unique woods, George skillfully draws out of the raw material, subtlety beautiful works of art and functional items. Sleek designs for bowls and remarkable abstract pieces sit side by side to create a fascinating look at what can be accomplished by the hands of a master.   
To compliment those works, Benedetto has interpreted journeys into the woods through a variety of mediums and styles. From a snowy winter sunset to a treetop view, through colorful foliage by a river and with a touch of fantasy, we are reminded of the beauty of the woods in nature and as well as works of art.
