Beth Freedman

Photography and painting have worked hand in hand for me for many years. I enjoy painting the photographs I capture, especially in nature. Being in the true presence of trees, flowers, insects and landscapes before I set them on canvas gives me a heightened awareness of nature’s vibration and use of light. Capturing those moments are my passion. She can be contacted at

Elizabeth Stark

I’m inspired to create new paintings every day from the beauty and goodness in the world. There’s just something about the starkness that calls to me. Please contact me at

Maria Sammartino

Maria Sammartino was born into a family of artists, and has spent many years creating art. After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009, she found herself immersed in painting, writing, and editing to help alleviate the pain that MS can cause. Maria has been a featured artist in local South Jersey juried shows and exhibitions, and currently has paintings hanging at the Perelman Canter in Philadelphia, Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital, and Penn Medicine.
Maria presents the viewer with a challenge in self-described “imagined landscapes” and abstract art that often defy rules of perspective and dimension. Her body of work is full of many different styles, and that is just a part of what makes them original. Each painting is different from the next, and not easily described as “abstract” or “landscape” but both at the same time. She mixes her vibrant palette in what seems to be endless layers and texture, challenging the viewer to label or describe them easily.
