Gerard Coe described his oil paintings as an expression of himself. “What I put on canvas is a memoir of my imagination. It brings me satisfaction to know that I have accomplished something.”

Victoriah expressed her conviction that art and creativity are activities of immeasurable importance. “It is a soul of our universe,” she said. In her mixed media pieces she uses recycled materials with paints and stitches to express her feelings about art and “the joy and enlightenment that comes with it.”

Geoffrey Gaskell will be exhibiting mainly ceramics, with a few ink drawings and oil paintings. He says that he has been working on the wheel and making steady progress for just about one year. “Recently I have focussed a lot of my attention to creating miniature pieces on the wheel. I want to show all these little pieces simply to demonstrate that ‘less can be more’ more or less.”
