Illustrating the beauty, diversity and inter-connectedness of the natural world, artist Lisa Madson uses a variety of media in her work. Prominently featured is the steam transfer process called eco-dying where leaves, ferns and other natural elements are printed using tannins, soot and ink over a steam tray. The prints are then colored and covered with an encaustic mix. Other pieces included in the show utilize various different printing processes. Lisa Madson is a member of the international Nature Printing Society, the Frontline Arts community and other arts organizations. She has been featured in Skylands magazine and works as an art teacher, a workshop instructor, and currently, as artist-in-residence at McCulloch Hall in Morristown New Jersey.

Hiking and camping while young introduced Larry Kerner to the grandeur of nature and gave him respect for the preservation of wilderness. The West Coast piqued his interest, and he began capturing images on film in color and in black and white. Since then, his camera has been his eyes. His interpretations range from cloud capped canyons to tumbling mountain streams and waterfalls. Mr. Kerner is a member of the Chatham Township Art League and the Vailsburg Camera Club of Springfield. The images in this show have been captured on film and digital media.
