|June Ponte||United States||Portraits in charcoal and oil paints by June Ponte.|
June’s early memories are of a home filled with her mother’s art. She was 7 years old when her mom died, and the loss changed her life. The artwork her mother left behind became a way for the child artist to connect with her dead mother. June was sent to live with her devoutly religious grandmother, and raised in a traditional Portuguese household.
The young artist was fascinated by tales of Grandfather Joao, who drew schooners with pen and turquoise ink on grandmother’s white linen tablecloths. Stories of Great-Aunt Mary who sprinkled a mixture of herbs around the outside of her home at midnight to ward off evil spirits, and stories of her mom who saw the future in tea leaves, impressed the young artist.
June’s ancestors from Madeira were known for their creative eccentricities. They would don each other's clothing and put on plays in their home for the local villagers. Family, art and mysticism played a major part in June’s spiritual and creative growth.
The first drawing she remembers creating was of her dog. She was nine years old, and used the charcoal from a burnt matchstick on the inside of a matchbook cover.
She creates everything from realistic charcoal and oil portraits to fantasy paintings of anthro animals with underlying themes of anti-war sentiment. The artwork is laced with mystic symbolism, evolving from her work as a spiritual medium.
June's work has appeared in the legendary Now Gallery, NYC; The Window Box Gallery, NYC; O-Roe Electric Art Space, Hoboken; City Without Walls, Newark, NJ; True Fakes Gallery, NYC, and the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Gallery in Newton, NJ. She has written and illustrated a series of nine children’s craft books, "Fun and Simple State Crafts",published by Enslow Publishers.
The artist lives in an 1860s era farmhouse nestled in the Kittatinny Mountains of northwestern New Jersey. Her studio looks out over the calm, flowing waters of the Paulinskill River.

|Ronald D. Isom||United States||Isom symbolic art||
I am a retired high school art instructor. I taught art for 33 years at Belleville East High School in Belleville, Illinois.
My art work is personal iconography. The imagery has been developed over fifty years. My vocabulary of icons enables me to generate hundreds of images without conscious effort. The ideas flow on the paper much like automatic writing. I generate the images in in sets of 10 to 20 and have produced several series of 100 or more. Many of my original works are photographed and the images are manipulated with Adobe illustrator, Photoshop or Corel Paint.

I do not follow one particular style. For me, different styles are only the tools to create art images. The range of my interests include realistic landscapes and still nature ('Rural House, Bulgaria', 'Summer Reminiscences'), pictures in impressionistic manner ('The Alley'), decorative compositions (triptych 'Watering Place'), abstract and analytical compositions ('Flowers'), symbolic artworks 'Landscape with a Lake').
In my avant-garde compositions I 'decompose' the world into its components and then, like out of mosaic, put it back together again. Though the houses are still houses, and trees are trees, the world looks different. This approach gives an opportunity to accentuate attention on different moments of life, look at the world from a different point. The impressions of the real world, such as coolness, heat, sunshine or a reminiscence of some familiar places are irrelevant here. I render my insight of the world, I look through the objects. Such things as perspective, horizon line, correlation between the size of the objects are not important for the insight. This approach allows to show the nature of the connections between the objects of this world. None of the objects depicted in these artworks is a particular object of the existing world, nor does it exist in the real world. I paint the ideas about objects, notions of objects. It is the symbolic meaning of the depicted objects that comes forward; their role is to evoke certain subconscious reactions and feelings (different in different people).
I like to paint picturesque locations, and at the same time find symbolic implications in acts of nature and in life of people. In any case, the
application of various styles gives a lot of freedom in work. My works can be found in private collections in Russia, France, Germany, the USA, and other countries.

|Alda Bikindou||South Africa||African Scenes|
Alda Bikindou (1978- ) came from Congo and settled in Cape Town South Africa 2000.
She and her artist husband and little daughter fled the war-torn Republic of Congo six months earlier in a desperate search for a safer place to raise their young family.
When war broke out in Congo Alda’s plan to pursue a formal training in visual arts was totally squashed. However, while growing up as a youngster, she used to spend hours watching a group of local artists painting and creating handcrafted items under a tree in front of her home. When she was 18 years old, she summoned the courage to approach them and asked to be taught how to paint. The kind artists obliged. From the moment she began those few initial attempts at painting on a canvas, it was as if the floodgates of her creative juices burst at its seams.
Her works predominantly depict African scenes, African people and their way of life. She is a prolific artist who sold hundreds and hundreds of paintings both locally and overseas. She and her family comfortably live off the proceeds from her paintings and other hand-crafted artworks.

|Wendy McArthur Fine Art||United States||wendymcarthur.com|
Wendy Petersen McArthur is an accomplished artist with over 200 works in private and corporate collections throughout the country. She is a third generation artist from Clearwater, Florida, where her love of the coastal atmosphere was instilled at an early age. Her grandmother, a landscape artist, inspired McArthur’s early training as an eight-year-old at the local Gulf Coast Arts Center.
McArthur graduated with an interior design degree from Winthrop University in Rock hill S.C. After a brief stint in the design world, she began a freelance art career that spanned several genres over two decades, including the past fifteen years as a successful portrait artist. Among her many commissions, her portrait of Robert B. McGehee a former CEO for Progress Energy in Raleigh, N.C. is hung alongside others that were created by famous painters, such as Everett Kinstler and Daniel Green.
In 2001, McArthur, with her sister-in-law Margaret Herman, founded the “9-11 Portrait Project”, in which artists across the country volunteered to create portraits of fallen fire fighters, in honor and remembrance, for loved ones left behind.
McArthur’s enduring love of the complex subtleties of color, developed and expressed in her portraiture collection, has translated effortlessly to her newest passion for coastal scenes. Her affinity for the costal subject matter is revealed by a seasoned command of her media. Confident, energetic brush strokes transport viewers into a universal “world” of sea-related memory.
She describes the coastal theme as a sort of rebirth, bringing her depth and command of color home to the beloved subject matter of her youth.
