Meet the Artists

Rebecca Moshaty resides in Auburn, NY, where she has been teaching art at different levels since 1998 and more recently exhibiting and selling her work throughout the area. She is an intuitive mixed media artist, layering paint and collage using emotion to guide the process. Her love of nature and the beauty of the Finger Lakes area is an apparent influence in her paintings. Her work has been displayed at several central New York galleries, with recent solo shows at Rome Community Art Center and Epicuse in Syracuse.

Fiber artist Barbara Golden, from Hastings, NY, has exhibited work in various local shows over the past 30 years. Her work includes both functional weavings, original tapestries and wall art inspired by her deep love of nature. She often spins and dyes her own wool, and uses linen, cotton, and other fibers as well as beads to enhance her artwork. With her large loom center stage in her living room, she can stop, sit and weave whenever she feels the urge to create and connect with the natural fibers and elements she collects.

Joanne Henry is a driftwood artist. Like many beachcombers, she is a compulsive collector. She spends summers at her cottage on Lake Ontario, her "Home for Wayward Driftwood,” where she resurrects these treasures. She hopes these sculptures bring life and attention back to the giants they once were. "The quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight. The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention!" ~Julia Cameron~
