Jean Davidson is a self-taught artist and her entry into the world of art was later in life. She has studied with various artists and printmakers and is an avid reader of instructional art books. She works in watercolor, mixed media, acrylic, pastel, collage, photography and printmaking. Ms. Davidson likes to experiment, explore and try new things. The artist freely admits that conventional wisdom advises artists to develop a distinctive style and perfect it. She considers that too stifling an option for her as her art is generally a “voyage of discovery.”

Beth Lowell, a resident of Morristown, is inspired by what lies just beyond the seemingly apparent—for instance, what the dog is really thinking, or the wide spectrum of colors you can see if you look closely in reflections and shadows. She strives to find and express exciting moments in the details through use of color in a way that transcends reality and captures the spirit of my subject.
