JUSTIN ANCHINSKO has worked with his father, Steven Snyder, doing stonework since 1996. He’s now following in his father’s footsteps to create unique, bold stone benches and sculpture, with both natural and polished surfaces, allowing the shape of the stone to determine the design.


ANABEL BOUZA is a Cuban-born mixed media artist, based in Lambertville, New Jersey.

She weaves nostalgia, fantasy, and nature inspiration to create intricate paper scenes which alternate between wistful storytelling, and praising quiet seclusion. Her work favors a monochromatic view, and draws from the romance of folktales, the mood of Soviet-era animation, and the candor of storybooks.

JACQUELINE HAUT EVANS SLEEPING WITH ROCK STARS The work centers around Jacqueline Haut Evans’ obsession with iconic rock star imagery and energy, and the liveliness we feel when music conjures integral memories of our youth from powerful personas. In this work, rock stars are painted on bedsheets on the floor, which lay on top of paper drop cloths. Through the process, the paint bleeds through onto the paper producing an unpredictable transfer beneath the bedsheet. The relationship between the bedsheet and transfer, fantasy, sexiness and messiness of the process ,are what makes this work exciting! Facebook.com/Jacqueline.Hautevans, Insta: @jhautevans.


JAMES FEEHAN Statement: “I am often asked concerning my paintings of the source of my subjects.

In reply I should say they are portraits of us. We as travelers on new journeys and seen with a more than a touch of whimsy.


We as saints and sinners, as fools, in love and out. The subjects are familiar and the journey is discovery.”


A Resident of Bucks County for over 40 years, James Feehan studied at Boston University with an influence from painters David Aaronson, Home and Blooming Walter Murch. He taught art from 1994 through 2015 through grants and foundations. James has exhibited widely across United States along with his work in the London art fair. Numerous museums, invitationals, juried and group shows along with many awards throughout the United States. His work is also included in many private and public collections.


PENELOPE FLEMING makes sculpture for the wall, vessels that flirt with function and sculptural birds for your garden and home. Pieces for the wall hang from aged wood while the birds are perched on American antiques. Ceramic sculptures are made with a combination of thrown, slab and altered vessel techniques. These three dimensional sculptural canvasses are then painted with fire and layers of oxides. The rich abstract surfaces are distinctively beautiful and adorn a wide variety of architecturally designed homes.


Sculptures are lightweight, come in a variety of sizes and can easily be hung on any wall. Fleming’s work has been installed in private homes and corporate spaces for well over 40 years. www.penelopefleming.com

WAYNE FREITAG Statement: “I feel compelled to let the paint live on it’s own terms, allowing it to mix as it wants and move about the canvas. The passion to create Art should be reinforced by the paint itself, engaging the viewer and eliciting a response.


I have shown in many galleries and Art Fairs up and down the Delaware Valley from Easton to Princeton and all points in between.” www.Freitagarts.com


BARRY GOOD Statement:  “My adult working life has gravitated around the Graphic Arts industries since 1976. Two years of College as an English Literature Major brought me to a crossroads. The road I chose was aimed towards commercial offset printing. Spending my early years as both a Lithographic Cameraman & an Image Assembler, I found my eagerness & thirst for graphic arts knowledge unquenchable. A stay in San Francisco for five years offered many new & exciting Graphic

Arts experiences. Moving back to my hometown, Philadelphia, I took a position as a Platemaker, creating printing plates for large offset presses. This position soon shifted into one focusing on Quality & Quality Control.


Spending the next 12 years being responsible for maintaining the Highest possible Quality of project after project sharpened my eye, my visual sense of what is pleasing. It is this skill set that I bring to today’s modern Digital SLR cameras & to the software that hones the captured image into one of Vision and one of Creation.


I have found that wherever I turn, it is likely there is some unique moment, a single form or shape or color, that modern technology allows me to possess & recreate. The results vary from image to image, but always will reflect my own interpretation of the scene before me.


The Images I capture, and eventually re-create, are slices of time, a moment here, a moment there that many times go unnoticed. When I do gather these almost unnoticed moments and then present them back to the viewer, it allows me to share my particular momentary perspective. Both the capturing of the image and the processing permits me to impart an emotional flare with the hope that the viewers will share in this and perhaps come away with the desire to look more closely at the world around them.

DON GONZALEZ is a  Glass artist who received four Artist Fellowships from the NJ State Council on the Arts and was appointed to a term on the Arts Council’s Board by the Governor in 1985. His work is represented in museum collections including the NJ State Museum, the Newark Museum, and the Museum of American Glass in Millville, as well as numerous private collections. Don was recently honored with a gallery exhibition of his sand cast glass sculptures in Venice Italy.


The intrinsic optical qualities of glass are a major concern of Don’s work. Emphasis is on the inherent visual properties of glass: the translucent and reflective qualities of the material are a primary design focus. Objects range from functional to sculptural, and utilize ancient techniques of blowing and sand- casting the glass. The forms achieved through the sand-casting technique are augmented with polychrome and metal inclusions and further developed with extensive cutting and polishing of the glass.


Don periodically hosts glassblowing and sand-casting glass weekend workshops. He was professor of the Glass Arts in the Fine Arts Department at Bucks County Community College for 17 years. For more information, call 908-996-6664; or email Gonzalez_6007@msn.com. See Don’s full body of work at www.dongonzalezglass.com.

MARTHA GONZALEZ Statement: “I love making blankets from the wool of my Border Leicester sheep.  Their wool is silky and lustrous.  After the sheep are shorn and the fleeces washed and combed, I spin the fleece into yarn.  Then I color the yarn with natural dyes.  I then weave the blankets on my floor loom, using a plain weave technique.  After the piece is woven, the blanket is removed from the loom and the hem is finished with a braid.  I have been spinning and weaving the wool from my flock of sheep for about 40 years.


HARRY GORDON Statement: “My process for making sculpture has always started with collecting the material first (wood and stone), without specific plans on exactly how I will use them.  When I was making wood sculpture, I used trees that had been blown over in storms or cut down to make way for construction.  Working in this fashion, I have always felt as though I am a conduit for my environment more than a creator of objects. Starting with shapes that have spoken to me and been created by nature or industry, and letting these objects relate to each other, I make constructions out of them that usually take on anthropomorphic attitudes, gestures and stance. They relate to life.”  See more at gordonsculpture.com.


WENDY W. GORDON Statement:  “The vastly varied structures of plant life have driven my particular interest with my silver soldered work. Branches, leaves and pods are comprised of intricate patterns that I continue to explore, and in repeating the forms, I find subtle differences within the similar elements, however, presented together, they form a cohesive whole. Look at a compound leaf, the eye of a fly or the tentacles of a jellyfish and you find multiple forms that work together towards one achievement: survival. Survival is life’s most basic instinct, and I am interested in exploring how it is achieved, through study of the intricate substructures of nature.” gordonsculpture.com.


In rural northwestern Connecticut, SHAARI HOROWITZ makes the 150 foot commute from her house to the 19th century barn which serves as workshop and studio. Here, under the watchful eyes & critical supervision of her shop cats, she practices her passion for painting and craft.


Shaari is a graduate of Pratt Institute & has worked throughout the United States as a mural painter specializing in the style of trompe l’oeil for over two decades.  Working with her husband, Alistair Jones, a master furniture-maker, she also makes, shows, and sells award-winning hand-painted and gilded wood bowls at high-end art shows across the country.  This work is based on an old world color palette, with patterns & imagery stemming from classical sources such as medieval manuscripts, ancient textiles, & the Frescoes of Pompeii.


A constant drive to experiment and explore has recently led Shaari to the art of jewelry making. Telling tiny tales using various combinations of silver, brass, stone, and shell has become the newest obsession in the studio. Shaarihorowitz.com


LAUREN JOHNSON is a writer and artist based in Hunterdon County. She studied English and art at Bard College and has since enjoyed combining these disciplines to create curious narratives.  She often likens herself to a ham sandwich with a little cheese. Her illustrations typically include characters doing super mundane tasks like vacuuming campsites or navigating hot dogs in space. Often, snacks are involved in her art because even though her work can be perplexing, snacks are awesome. Her illustrations have been shown throughout Hunterdon and Mercer County.

HALEY MANCHON Haley grew up outside of Philadelphia and received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2018. She is represented by MK Apothecary in Collingswood, NJ, and has her work displayed on the 2nd floor of The People’s Store in Lambertville, NJ. 

Haley has just exhibited a new body of work in a 3-artist show with her gallery MK Apothecary in September. She will be exhibiting at Art Fair 14C and Aqua Art Basel in the coming months. Haley has recently exhibited in the 2022 Derwent Art Prize located at Gallery@OXO in London, England; Arch Enemy Arts in Philadelphia, PA; the 12th Annual International Drawing Discourse at UNC Asheville, NC; Salmagundi Club in New York, NY; the Phillips’ Mill Annual Juried Exhibitions in New Hope, PA; CLIP: An International Exhibition of Works on Paper in Lubbock, TX; the Offscreen Art Show at Ground Floor Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; and with the Colored Pencil Society of America’s Explore This! Exhibitions.

She has been a resident artist at Overland Artworks SHELTER (2020), Gilbertsville Expressive Movement (2019) and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art’s Currents summer program (2017).

About Haley’s work:  Haley’s work considers the kinds of thoughts that, when she’s alone, often pull her from reality into far off places. Her recent portrait drawings use superimposed imagery of compounded features and patterns to present a visual, literal cycling of these thoughts and moments. The effect is created by using one or multiple layers of dura-lar, which allows the marks of the drawing to delicately emerge and recede.


JOYCE MURPHY Statement: “My latest collection of dresses happened before the pandemic. I would wake up at five in the morning and run into my studio I was so inspired. I’ve aways been attracted to fabric and paper. Along with lace, jewelry, and a variety of accents, I created these small dresses. I would like to see the entire collection on one wall. I can see it in an attic bedroom. My fascination with these elements will be on display at HoBART 2023.”

Emerging artist JESSY RIDGEWAY explores scale and form to bring macramé out of “craft” into fine art. Her works range from larger than life rope installations to delicate one of a kinds for the home. Ridgeway uses repetition and natural materials to create a sense of harmony in her custom work.


Statement:  “In life we are all glued to the timeline. Our tomorrows will depend on what we did today. I find the same thing in tying knots. We start up top where the strands are deliberately spaced. If the first knot is off, it will affect the second row all the way down to the 20th and so on. I must be present for every pull and twist. Through this type of care, I can stand back and appreciate each knot for playing its part in the bigger picture.

Our moments build to create days, those days…a lifetime. Every knot is a moment to me. Whether the work is 10 feet tall or 5 inches wide, it’s been designed to offer a sense of harmony to the viewer.”

SUSAN ROSEMAN Statement: “The lino cut is my medium of choice for the images assembled. I relish these many dogs and the variety of creative response they inspire. I am impelled by the subject to employ a host of technical choices to portray what each individual brings to the sitting. Sometimes surprises, sometimes poetry, all to the end of portraiture, an art piece that is decisive and familiar; a reward in itself to everyone who has a heart to share with one of these captivating spirits. www.artieart.com www.susanroseman.com

DENISE SANDY Artist Statement: “My represented work are all originals, one of a kind oils, pastels or watercolor paintings. No mass produced multiples here. The medium I choose for the painting is determined by whichever one can best express whatever I am trying to achieve in the painting.


I paint ordinary occurrences, and daily sightings; sunsets, clouds, farm animals, clothes lines that tell a story about color, form, and line.


My greatest source of inspiration for my artwork comes from the beauty of a sunset, a vista from a mountain top, the joy of an animal’s expression, and the marriage of color, line, and form created by chance in our everyday surroundings. I prefer to concentrate on pleasurable experiences and emotions, to combat the negativity in our society today.

ERIC SCHULTZ Eric Schultz was born in Trenton, NJ in 1976.  Schultz works predominantly in the medium of metal, particularly found object sculpture.  However he loves to experiment in making art of any kind.  Eric has a deep artistic fascination with junk and the detritus of life. He finds inspiration from animals, people, ancient myths and good stories.


After graduation from Temple’s prestigious Tyler School of Art, Eric realized his need to address the environmental issue of recycling. The “green” aspect of Eric’s sculpture is an integral part of his artistic process, along with elements of music and humor.  Eric has primarily focused his efforts on transforming waste into sculptural treasures. 


For the last 20 years, he has had a series of sculpting commissions, shows, and residencies in the Pennsylvania and New Jersey areas. In addition Eric has conducted numerous classes and demonstrations. Schultz honed his set building, large sculpture construction, art handling, and artist consultation skills working as the preparator for both the Sculpture Foundation and the Grounds for Sculpture from 2008 to 2015.  One of his more notable commissions was to transform a 1976 VW “Beetle” into a “Love Bug”. The “Love Bug” is currently perched on the roof of the Children’s Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill, NJ.  Eric recently won first place in the juried “Upcycled” sculpture show at Trenton, NJ.  The Grounds for Sculpture awarded him an artist in residence project to create a 16’ found object, “Sleeping Giant”.  Eric collaborated on this project with community volunteers and an assistant artist, Ruthann Perry.


Schultz’ artwork can be found in a myriad of public and private art collections.  He currently has studios at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ and his home in Hopewell. New Jersey.


CODY SNYDER is a freelance videographer and artist in Bucks County, Pa. His works in ink/colored pencil/gouache got their start as wandering doodles in the blank margins of his high school notebooks in New York. Later, while living in the New Mexican desert, his onlooking peers began encouraging him to continue his quirky illustrations and share them with the public. In his own words, “They’re certainly not everybody’s cup of tea, but every once in a while, the right person will get a real kick out of them.”


STEVEN SNYDER Statement: “My life is an association with rocks. I feel drawn to pick up every one of them.”


Snyder has been a resident of Bucks County since 1966, and has been sculpting stone since 1981. Self-taught, he entered stone sculpting through his work as a stone mason which he began in 1976. Fascinated by early Pennsylvania stone architecture, the diversity of indigenous stone in Bucks County, and the tradition of stone carving and shaping in this region, he began exploring form and texture through simple carvings in native stone.


His work includes the carving of three large sandstone murals on the exterior of the Jewish Center of Princeton in Princeton, New Jersey, in 1984. In 1994 he traveled to Quitman, Mississippi, to do a reproduction of a classic Bucks County farm house which was featured in Fine Homebuilding Magazine, (“Laying up Stone Veneer,” November, 1994). Country Living Magazine did a cover story on Snyder’s Bucks County Pennsylvania sculpture garden, studio and home featuring his sculpture and stone carvings (“A Sculptor’s Sanctuary,” August, 1996) and in 2001, HGTV’s “Our Place” showcased his work as well.


For 19 years, Snyder opened his sculpture garden and studio, Cedar Maze, to the public for a showing of his most recent works. His studio and residence have moved. Snyder now resides in Ottsville, PA, where his studio and sculpture garden are now private.


Snyder’s works were included in the 38th Annual Bucks County Sculpture Show, November 5 to 22, 2015, at The New Hope Winery as well as, “Form in Space,” curated by Renzo Faggioli, at the Payne Gallery of Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania from December 4, 2008 to January 25, 2009. Past shows include the Phillips Mill Art Show in 1983, 1984, 1994 and 1995 at Phillips Mill in New Hope, Pennsylvania, Ralph Stover Mill Gallery in 1996 in Erwinna, Pennsylvania; and two shows in 1996 at Park Slope Framing and Gallery in Brooklyn, New York. Executed in marble and granite, “Cody” was commissioned by the Central Bucks School District for public display in 1994 at Buckingham Elementary School. He served as an artist in residence there in 1994.

Commissioned by The Thompson Organization and family for a sculpture in honor of the millennium for the town of Doylestown, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Snyder’s sculpture, “Look to the Future Through the Past,” was installed outdoors at the corners of Broad and Court Streets. His sculptures are included in the permanent collection of The Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center in Newark, NJ. His work is also collected privately throughout the United States.

CHRISTOPH SPATH was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1957. He studied architecture in Aachen, Germany and later apprenticed with a master stone sculptor in Duesseldorf. In 1982, he moved to Vermont, where he maintained a studio for the next 15 years. During this time, he was the Sculptor in Residence at the Vermont Marble Exhibit and taught stone sculpture at the Vermont Carving Studio, Green Mountain College and Castleton State College.


In 1997 Spath joined with sculptor Walter Dusenberry to establish the Johnson Atelier Stone Division in Mercerville, NJ. The Stone Division was the first facility in the US allowing sculptors to produce large-scale stone sculptures using CNC technology and laser scanning, in conjunction with traditional craftsmanship. When the Johnson Atelier closed in 2003, Spath and a group of fellow sculptors formed the non-profit Digital Stone Project, and took over the facilities. Spath served as its Executive Director until he founded Advanced Stone Technologies to continue offering CNC sculpture fabrication to artists. He later sold the operation to the artist Jeff Koons to exclusively produce Koons’ works in stone. For this purpose he built a new facility, Antiquity Stone, and continued to manage the operation until 2018.


Spath has worked as a sculptor for over 35 years. His work reflects his interest in the natural qualities of the stone he chooses for his sculptures in juxtaposition to the manmade, often geometric forms found in his work. He frequently introduces glass as an element, which adds light and color to his work and represents fluidity and illumination.


Spath’s work has been exhibited extensively throughout the United States, Mexico and Europe, and appears in many public, private and corporate collections, including Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey.


ANNELIES VAN DOMMELEN Statement:  “The human condition, nature and bestial imagery are a part of my thoughts, even when it is not obvious, it is always there. Probably ingrained from growing up in a nature motivated family.


As I paint, the ideas emerge for me. I approach each work with spontaneity and minimal plans ahead of time. It truly becomes a journey with the pleasure of discovery that is all about color, shape, depth, story line, detail, composition, actual and illusionist dimension, details, balance, moving paint and removing paint.”


Annelies van Dommelen has studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, in Philadelphia, Pa and privately under the tutelage of specific artists, also specialty situations such as, the Center for Book Arts and NY Graduate school of Figurative Art both in NYC, Vermont Studio Center and Penland. She has received 2 Fellowship Grants and the Adolph and Ester Gottleib Grant.


Exhibitions include several invitational museum shows such as Phillips Mill, New Hope Pa, Hunterdon Museum of Art, Clinton, NJ, Woodmere Art Museum, Chestnut Hill, Pa., and Springfield Art Museum, Missouri. She has also been in juried and invitational, national and international shows with awards. Some collections include Price Waterhouse, Carteret Savings Bank, and Blue Cross/Blue Shield.


She works in many mediums and several styles, all innately her own and easily identified as coming from the same person, with an attention to detail, finish and balance running through all. Her largest works have an intimacy down to the last stroke. https://www.vandommelenart.com


MAYFIELD WILLIAMS resides in Lambertville, and was educated as a jeweler, but wanted a platform that extended beyond the body. This led her to sculpture, mostly dioramas, revolving around a dystopian future with references to the past, universal myth, and fairy tales, often laced with personal and universal issues, such as aging or fear. Mayfield uses her jewelry background in her business, “1000 Autumns,” wherein she creates accessories from vintage Japanese textiles, inspired by her time living in Japan. This appeals to her interest to transform discarded items into something useful or beautiful, or unwanted to desirable. View her work on instagram @mayfield_at_1000autumns.

SUMMER YATES is a mixed media artist living in Bucks County, PA. Her current body ofwork consists of soft sculpture and wall hangings made from layers of repurposed textiles, plastics, and foam. Summers’ somatic approach to artmaking comes from her experience growing up as a ballet dancer. The material dexterity she employs, hint at her many years of experience working as a scenic and decorative artist. Summer studied art formally in Philadelphia and was awarded scholarships from Moore College of Art and Design where she received her BFA in 2000, and The Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts where she received her MFA in 2007. Summers’ vibrant paintings and mirror mobile installations have been exhibited at prominent institutions in the Philadelphia area including, The Independence Seaport Museum, Rowan University, and The Kimmel Center For The Performing Arts. In 2015 she was invited to exhibit her work in the UK as the only American artist to be part of a curated exhibition, “A Moving Identity” in response to the ongoing refugee crisis. In October 2019, Summers installation of mirror mobiles appeared on the cover of the publication, American Psychologist. In 2024 she will have a solo exhibition at The Abington Art Center in Abington, PA. Currently, Summer teaches privately, and works out of her barn studio. You can view what she is up to on her website at summeryates.org and on IG at @summeryatesart.
