WELCOME NEW MEMBERS
MICHELLE HUBLER

Michelle Hubler, born in Maine but a Bridgeport resident since she was 13, worked in advertising for most of her life, but only recently discovered her artistic abilities with digital materials. Self taught, using an iPad and stylus, Michelle is creating, and evolving, her own unique style of expression. Digital technology enables her to produce an image that, in her own words, is "energetic, detailed, vibrant and above all amusing – it’s what some have described as the future generation of contemporary lyrical art.”  She says she is designing outside the norms of formal structure or rigid techniques – giving her the license and freedom to begin something without any notion of the final outcome - what she calls Art with a Personality. She writes that the advances in digital technology with its limitless applications gives an enormous flexibility to the artist - for composition, depth & detail. The sky's the limit! Michelle is a member of  the Black Rock Art Guild (BRAG) as well as the Fairfield Art Association and Area Artists of Fairfield & Westchester Counties. She recently showed at Fairfield Public Library's Kershner Gallery, and is putting together an exhibition for Along Came Carol's The Nook in Black Rock. See Michelle's website.
MARJORIE POE

Marjorie Poe is an accomplished Chinese ink wash painter. Studying fabric design at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), Marjorie devoted her entire career to the fashion industry, in which she supervised and worked with a team of yarn, fabric, and fashion designers. Life experience gave her a sensitivity to color and a passion for painting and design. Retiring from Jones Apparel NY, Marjorie picked up her paint brush with enthusiasm, and has been enjoying artful adventures in oil, acrylic, and pastel ever since. She was most recently featured in Inspiration, a juried exhibition at the Rowayton Arts Center. Her work, The Tranquil, The Lotus, (pictured with Marjorie, above) was rendered using a Chinese technique called gong-bi, by which many thin layers of paint accumulate. Marjorie says she uses a calligraphic, breath-based stroke for her watercolors: "For me, painting is a meditation." She is now taking classes in Western art practices at Silvermine Art School and the Westport Senior Center. She is a member of the Fairfield County Arts Association, the Black Rock Arts Guild (BRAG) and the Stamford Art Association (SAA). She has recently shown at SAA's juried Face & Figure exhibition, the BRAG Give Back show and the Pequot Library Annual Art Show.

Miggs is pictured at right with Senko at the film's NYC premiere, March 18. See this clip explaining how Miggs got Rush Limbaugh to appear on his TV show.

SCOTT GLASER just finished installing Good Fortune  (48"x96" acrylic on canvas; see detail), commissioned by China Merchants Bank, on Madison Avenue, New York. In China, the sunflower is a symbol of good fortune. Glaser was “fortunate” enough to be commissioned, once again, to create this flagship piece, his 16th for the bank, for new space CMB acquired. He is now negotiating to create another painting for another floor the bank is renovating. Good fortune indeed.
MICHAEL DAVID KOZLOWSKI has been selected for the second year running to participate in Sing For Hope's Pianos public art exhibition.
