“Beauty has always been a central factor in my life and I don’t understand people who can live in gray, boring surroundings. I love living with art, experiencing art and sharing art, whether it is a framed piece, architecture, furniture or nature.”
DEC 12th Suzanne Benton
Suzanne Benton is a native New Yorker. She’s shared her many-faceted art as a sculptor, mask performance artist, printmaker, painter and workshop leader for 30+ years, in 31 countries.
“A fascination with the intersections of the personal and the archetypal has carried me through life’s journeys. In making art and teaching throughout the world, I’ve sought to learn and reconfigure unquestioned myths, expanding my art and understanding in the process. Whatever awareness I’ve attained now abides in my work.”
DEC 19th. Dee Perconti
Dee Perconti is a mixed-media collage artist whose focus is dramatic transformation. Her passion for change began when she was a child. She worked hard on recreating herself and is still evolving. She enjoys taking something plain and redoing it, until it shines. Redecorating and re-purposing gives her joy.
“I make art to show how we are ever growing, changing, evolving and transforming. It’s a message of optimism and hope. Life is exciting, vibrant and full of second chances. That’s why I utilize my old paintings as do overs. They have another opportunity to say something new and relevant. When I ripped up a still life from the past, it transformed into a statement.”
