As a young teen Bert enjoyed drawing and paint-by-numbers as a form of entertainment and creative passion. He took several art classes in college and continued classes with many good instructors over the years, including Mr. William Weaver and Mr. Ed Friend. His normal path leans towards landscape work with much architecture and details. He loves traveling with his wife and paints many of his pieces from his photographs, sometimes combining 3 or 4 themes to get a better result. Mostly self-taught, Bert paints as a stress reliever and simply because it is an enjoyment for him.
David Trout Biography and Artist Statement
I was born in Philadelphia on May 18, 1957 and raised in Cherry Hill, NJ. In 1969, my family moved to Montgomery County, PA. For 35 years, I lived in the neighboring towns of Jenkintown and Glenside. I am now married and reside in Elkton, MD, where I have established myself as a local artist.
I have been involved in fine arts since I was eight years old. Formally trained at both the Studio School of Art and Design and the Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, I continued with workshops at the Philadelphia College of Art (PCA). I consider myself to be a landscape and still life artist, working mainly in oils. As an artist, the learning process never ends. I try to keep myself open to new ideas and new techniques. This attitude of always trying to improve is what keeps me painting. My work is “representa- tional with an impressionistic flair” and is constantly evolving. My objective is to capture the subtle nuances of light within a subject.
My work has been in numerous exhibits in PA, NJ, DE, and MD. At the Louisa Melrose Gallery, I won two ribbons. In December 1998 and in September 2005, I was featured in the Artist's Magazine in their Art Clinic Section. My work was in the sales and rental gallery at the Philadelphia Art Museum. I have received three Honorable Mentions. Two private collectors have three of my oil paintings each. I have had the opportunity to establish myself with commissioned works and gallery representation. My newest venture is my blog to showcase my artwork: www.davidwtrout.wordpress.com.

Edwin Friend Artist Statement *1926 - 2016
To me, Great Nature's myriad forms of life all have an indwelling presence of their own and speak in elegant silence. It is this reality that I strive to touch and reflect through my painting.
What lives Forever
Is only Now,
The precious moment
Of Instant Awareness,
That by-steps time,
That lives in Eternity.
That brings Life Overflowing.
Nan Furness Artist Statement
A time for renewal, a time to bloom
If winter didn't take you then there's still room
to find that SOMETHING however old,
however forgotten; forget what you're told.
We each have a SOMETHING, a spark that's still lit. So bloom
at your finest while you re-new IT
Nan Furness 2013

Hi, I'm Jeanne Murray and I call my art “Dream Art.” I had a dream image & decided to draw it. That was in late April of 2014. That year I drew over 250 Gel Pen pictures. In Feb of 2015 I took a watercolor painting class taught by Mary Tabo at the Cecil Community College. Now at 68, I feel I have found my passion. I do water color & acrylics. I particularly love painting animals but I do venture into some imaginary imagery.
