Wild and Wonderful 

“These women are not afraid to explore, to imagine, to create, to redefine, to compete,” shares gallery owner Ann Korologos. “As a group, their work is wild, diverse, bold, refined, playful, and exploratory.”

The Artists

Paula Schuette Kramer, Diana Woods, and Elsa Sroka reimagine the personalities and connection with wildlife, each making them part of the family. Allison Stewart uses mixed media and imagination in her abstract landscapes, while Sherrie York carves careful observations into her linoleum prints.

Deborah Paris paints from memory, and Kate Starling paints en plein air, yet both artists produce luminous landscapes full of mystery and light. Veryl Goodnight, Lisa Gordon, Janet Nelson and Amy Laugesen explore their passion for horses and history through bronze, ceramic, and paper cast.

Donna Howell-Sickles and Peggy Judy honor the culture of ranch life, particularly the exuberance and strength of women on the range. Sarah Lamb is a traditional, realist still life painter, and Dinah Worman paints the landscape as though it were a still life.
