Grace Cooper lives in New London, NH. Her work has been shown in juried and invitational exhibitions and her paintings are in private collections throughout the United States. "By layering thin washes of color onto the canvas, the work is given a soft diffused and ethereal quality. I'm drawn toward the abstract and minimal aspects of the landscape, which for me evoke a sense of peace and serenity, something I feel we all yearn for at times."

Townsend enjoyed his freedom to paint full-time, but his inability to find an outlet for his paintings was difficult. But in the early 1980’s, things began to change. People began to realize Townsend was still around, and most importantly, they began to purchase paintings. The Deming Gallery opened up in New London and was incredibly successful selling his work. The Kerygma Gallery in Ridgefield, NJ had one-man shows every other year, and they were very pleased with the results. The 1980’s and ’90’s were Townsend Howe’s highlight years.
In the 2000’s Townsend continued to paint, but his health slowed him down considerably. He died on August 18, 2007
Though Townsend may no longer be with us, his love for the Kearsargre and Lake Sunapee region lives on. Those who enjoy his work cannot walk past a painting without stopping to think, “I know that place. I must have been there before…”

Alan Gepfert is a New Hampshire artisan. Many of his realistic and semi-realists works are inspired for his love of nature and wildlife. "It's uniquely satisfying to be absorbed in the creative process of carving. There is a mental energizing as well as peacefulness because no other thoughts or distractions can get into my mind then. It's truly rewarding to create something out of the mind's eye. And there is a very special satisfaction in seeing a work emerge from its stone by stage, regardless of how long that may take."
Each highly textured, individualized ceramic bowl created at Zpots Studio begins with a beautiful chocolate clay body. Artists Noelle Van Hendrick and Eric Hendrick hand-throw each piece, decorate it with slip to create a textured one-of-a-kind surface, and employ wax resist methods to create deep varied surfaces.
The artists view each Zpot as a unique individual that is part of a family. The glaze colors of earth, forest, and water remain consistent, but the spontaneous line drawings that decorate each piece will vary.
