Pat Robinow is a painter working primarily in oil with still life and landscape. Beth Holyoke is a ceramic artist and strawbale house builder who enjoys pastel landscapes. Margrit Tydings-Petree is a Kentucky-born mixed-media artist who enjoys figurative work along with travel drawing in pen and charcoal.
