Terri Fraser, a resident of Annandale, NJ, is an emerging artist. While she has always been skilled and trained in art, she has only been painting and showing her work consistently since 2014. In recent years, she has studied with Valeri Larko, a realist painter, and Wes Sherman, who allowed her to explore more abstract and daring approaches to painting. The combination of influences from these two artists is apparent in Ms. Fraser’s work. “Most of my work is en plein air,” she says, “The process of packing my giant backpack and wandering through the New Jersey countryside allows me to connect with the earth and find that moment I want to share in a painting.”

Works by photographer, digital artist and fashion designer Charles T. Miller. Our exhibit will feature a variety of images as “envisioned” by the artist including traditional photographic images – landscapes, travel, flowers, animals. Some of these will have been given special artistic treatments that will make them look less like photographs and more like drawings. Also included will be special “digital art” images that have begun from photographs but have then been morphed into new and different abstract images that have been seen in the artist’s mind and translated into the exhibited pieces. Images will be presented on a variety of medium as well, including canvas, acrylic and metal as well as traditional photographic forms. Mr. Miller lives in Ringoes, NJ.
