- Inventive and intriguing, Alyce Ritti's mixed-media collages are full of surprises.

Most of Holly Fritchman's exquisite artwork is inspired by nature. From intricate portraits of a single acorn to gorgeous landscapes of an autumn marsh, her work draws one in with its elegant beauty.
Fritchman describes "each art experience as a gift of time...every time I pick up my brush or pencil, I see something new." Balancing the fine detail of watercolor and pencil with the looseness of oil painting keeps her energized and curious.
Artist Rachel DiAndrea's love for animals is immediately apparent in her colorful, engaging portraits of dogs, horses and even pigs. Particularly passionate about dogs, DiAndrea has established herself as a premier national canine illustrator.
What sets her apart from other canine artists is her ability to capture not only the breed, but the heart and soul of each beloved family pet. As a dog owner and lover herself, her enthusiasm and passion for her subjects is visible in each animal's distinctive personality.
Watercolors by Sofia Austin will be on display from January 2nd thru the 31st, in the Betsy Rodgers Allen Gallery.
