Amy Beshgetoorian is a watercolor artist who strives to capture energy with her brush strokes.  Her paintings feature soft blends and daring dashes to create a reflection of her subjects.  Amy is inspired by the old barns, animals, and nature scenes prevalent in Johnston County where she lives.

Allen Clapp uses rich, complementary colors in subtle variations to produce harmonious movement in a symphony of color. Movement is the key.  His goal is to showcase the colors, excitement, and movement of life - and the sheer joy they give to all who take the time to enjoy them.

Jim Hallenbeck paints landscapes, cityscapes, and the people that inhabit them. Although painting realistically, he accentuates with bright colors to trigger emotion or spark a memory in the viewer.
