Longtime friends and colleagues, both of these artists find inspiration in nature and in the materials and techniques of mixed media paintings. Linda Laino will exhibit mixed media watercolors. She states: "Art-making, in part, requires noticing, seeing, admiring, and recording patterns in all forms. The exquisite patterns in nature draw my eyes like nectar. I find comfort in the structure." Linda has recently moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for a teaching position. Linda received her MFA in textiles from VCU. Suzyn Hutton Kelley will have small mixed media works that were painted in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and inspired from "the exquisite corpses of hundreds of dead butterflies, which were proudly delivered to me daily by my grade one and two students at Saigon South International School." Suzyn uses the butterfly corpse as a material in the work but states: "I am concerned with images as simulations: marks that attempt to refer to something or someplace else and have been on a quest to discover work that is its own entity. I want to make a painting that is about itself and somehow nothing much else." Suzyn has been a Richmond artist for 24 years but has recently embarked on an international teaching career in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Jeju, a Korean Island.
