August Art Display

We have the pleasure of showcasing the works of two wonderful artists in our meeting room throughout the month of August. This month we are featuring Carol Livingston and Lee Nemmers. Make sure you stop by the meeting room to see their works.

Carol Livingston:
"Every canvas is an adventure. I don’t always know where it will lead me, but it is always fun. I try to incorporate design into each piece and I like to experiment with different techniques." 

A graduate of Vesper George School of Art in Boston, Carol started her commercial art career as a fashion illustrator and then a hard goods illustrator working for many retail stores in New England. Eventually, she became a layout and mechanical artist. She then became a technical illustrator, always improving on her pen and ink skills. When the Internet came along, Carol learned how to design web sites. She did not, however, give up her pen and ink skills, which now consist of scribble and stipple renderings. Later in life Carol began painting with oils, using a digital camera to work up compositions in Photoshop and then to translate them onto canvas. 

Lee Nemmers:
Tao Sunset orange palette painting
"I love color. It's a gift of the natural world that we all share, and it's my primary means of expression. The light that color contains feels like a source of life, and the way that light is revealed through the use of color can be joyful. Much like music, color elicits an emotional response. I also seek patterns and movement in the play of color and light, patterns that can suddenly mesh to suggest the natural light and human environment without seeking to represent it. Using a palette knife is a simple technique for discovering those patterns, and often feels to me like the freedom of exploring without a map, using my intuition to find a path through a playful landscape of abstract images."


The creative spark is irresistible, and so Lee fans it by stretching her imagination with the pure enjoyment of color, light, texture and composition. She finds joy in the painting process. Working in the moment generates inner harmony, for Lee a key to creativity.
