CECILIA GUITARTE

Oil paintings by Cecilia Guitarte have a clean graphic style with a keen eye for lighting nuances and a focus on everyday subjects elevated to high art. From sliced fruit and vegetables to mist-shrouded trees, serene skies and whimsical still lifes, Cecilia’s distinct detailed imagery stands apart “My paintings are based on photos taken around my home and on my travels. I see lines and shapes, darks and lights and try to accent what has caught my attention. I have a very logical mind, so I like to simplify the objects and the colors that I use; I liked clean lines and a smooth surface” It's no wonder Cecilia gets juried into numerous prestigious shows, including being juried into the National Oil & Acrylic Painterz Society in 2015 and 2016. In the Raleigh Fine Arts show judged by NC Museum Director Larry Wheeler and the N.E.W Show juried exhibit at VAE. She won 1st place in the 2012 Small Treasures exhibit at the Cary Gallery and in 2011 won Honorable Mentions in the Fine Arts League of Cary annual exhibit and the NC State Fair Juried Exhibit. She is in numerous private and corporate art collections both local and in her home country, Argentina.

FLORA PINKHAM
Flora Pinkham is a representational oil painter living in central North Carolina. Her sensitive paintings reflect her love for the natural world and the beauty of ordinary experiences. Flora’s journey as an artist began at a young age, as her interest in the natural world was nurtured by her scientist parents. She spent much of her time drawing, painting and creating in many mediums, with her early art classes focused on the basics of realistic drawing.
She majored in art in college, graduating Summa Cum Laude from a small school in central Pennsylvania. Her education provided a strong foundation in representational painting as well as a beautiful pastoral setting. Inspired by her surroundings, Flora began to explore painting outdoors, often embarking on her own plein air journeys, setting up along roadsides and trails. She still paints outdoors regularly and creates still lifes and larger landscapes in her home studio.
Flora has received awards in regional and national plein air events and national shows: Award of Excellence, Oil Painters of America Salon Show 2016. 1st Place, Carolina on my Mind juried show, Visual Arts Circle 2015. Honorable Mention, Plein Air Richmond 2013
Blue Ribbon, Paint North Carolina invitational show, Germanton Gallery 2012. 2nd Place, Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival 2010

BERT SULT


Architect, Bert Sult started painting cityscape watercolors a few years ago and in a short period his works have garnered a wide following.

Known predominantly for European, New York and iconic steet & landmark scenes, his loose, lively, masterful use of watercolor and expressive method of wet in wet lost edges juxtaposed with lines and figures imbue a distinctly sophisticated, nostalgic yet ethereal tone.

Combining controlled washes with soft edges against areas of line and detail creating intentional light, shadow and shape patterns livened up with people moving the viewer around the scene is a lifetime goal many watercolorists pursue and Sult's work rises to this challenge consistently.

Bert Sult has been in numerous group & solo exhibits throughout NC.
