William D. Barnes lives in Williamsburg and regularly travels abroad. His paintings and monotypes are of carefully examined found and arranged still life and landscapes.

Collin Murphy, Ph.D., is a visual artist living in Portland, Oregon, who creates paintings depicting phenomena of nature. A retired Research Cell Biologist at the University of California, she has exhibited frequently in Oregon and California, held an Artist’s Residency at Yosemite National Park, has been in 8 exhibits at the Yosemite Museum, with work in the museum’s permanent collection. Her particular focus has been on the sculpting power of water on earth’s rocks and soil, and its manifestations as clouds, rain, rivers, waterfalls, and oceans. She explores reactions that occur as paint and color move over, around, into, and between surfaces of differing compositions and textures. Collin teaches art in her studio and as a volunteer in both an elementary school and a homeless shelter.
