Julie Trigg, Painter
Julie Trigg studied at the Art Students League, Parson’s School of Design and the New School, all in New York City. She has been an artist for many years and was selected as one of “30 Florida Women in Art” by Edison College in 1982.

Timothy Raines, Painter
Art should flow from the moment, supported by all that I have experienced in the past and present rather than drawn directly from experience or training. My work flows from me and builds into something that, when done well, catches me off guard.

Marcile Powers, Vector Artist
In my artist endeavors, emotional healing is always the most profound goal. I believe that it is the greatest achievement of art itself. Perhaps this is from my film and storytelling background.

Brian David Braun, Photographer
Landscape photography taken over a four year period in and around the Myakka River Forest, it documents the changes that have occurred in the four years I have called this area my home, including photographs of indigenous wildlife, many of which are threatened.

Kate Lowman, Digital Montage
Sarasota photographer creates layered photographs, which combine elements to create a larger aesthetic and emotional image. She is represented by the Hodgell Gallery.
