Susan McAlister uses her abstract approach to landscape painting to challenge the viewer’s sense of place and time. Susan combines layers of paint, wax, marble dust and graphite to produce textured, energetic abstract works.  Susan received her BA from Davidson College and has studied at London’s Central St Martins School of the Arts.  Her work is exhibited widely in the South East and has been featured in numerous juried exhibitions.

With an entirely personal interpretation of gestural abstraction, Fran O'Neill uses her own body to push and sweep paint around the canvas. This expressive method of applying paint and the monumental size of her work, provide the immersive experience that is a hallmark of abstract expressionism.  Fran has exhibited widely throughout the United States and internationally including at MOCA Jacksonville.  Fran has received numerous awards including the Joan Mitchel Foundation Award.
