Rooted in observation, Brian Chu’s work maintains a dialogue between objectivity and subjectivity in all subjects: landscape, figure and still life. His intense perceptual engagement with the world is evident in textured layers of vibrant colors. Brian is currently a Professor at the University of New Hampshire where he teaches courses in painting, drawing, and printmaking on all levels in undergraduate and graduate programs.

Anna Dibble Confluence
Anna Dibble’s work shifted in a new direction when she moved from the Vermont mountains where she was born, to Portland, Maine. Her work is driven by the confluence of her recent recovery from a series of deaths, and her interest in the losses and changes in ecological biodiversity due to human activity. Dibble uses symbolic images of evolution, ancient marine life, birds, boats, and humans to explore a personal mythology that’s based on her love of the natural world, and concern for its future.

Kate Emlen lives and works in Norwich, Vermont and in her Maine studio in the summer. Her command of composition and luminous color are the foundation of her paintings. Tilted horizons, tree trunks in conversation with one another, and skies laden with weather conspire to draw in the viewer. These paintings are a response to the artist’s view of the natural world and her intimacy and passion for her northern New England surroundings. Click here to view images.
