About the Artists


ROBIN HERR

Robin is a graduate of Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.  She is an award-winning painter, designer, and Artist Member of the Copley Society of Art, Concord Art Association, and the Danforth Art Museum.  Her current work focuses on the land and seascapes of New England.


"I’m captivated by the color, contrasts, and compositions found in nature at any given time of day or season.  In the way a musician might cover a song, I’m drawn to cover the natural world. Most often these are settings with an emotional connection: oceans, woods, and lakes where I’ve spent time throughout my life; scenes that, as Marc Bohne said, “trip my attention.” Recently I’ve been inspired by settings where the natural world intersects with the manmade.  There’s something about this intersection, the humble precision of manmade structures intersecting with nature’s unpredictabiltiy that I find intriguing."

 

VALERIE MASER-FLANAGAN

I am intrigued with the lines and shapes observed in natural settings and city architecture. My designs are influenced by bold lines formed in venerable forests, refined lines flowing in stone and wood grains, complex ice crystals, and unusual shapes formed by stone walls, asymmetric holes in tree trunks, and worn brick walls in old New England mills.

My approach is improvisational, starting with a general idea, a palette of colors, and a blank design wall. Freely cut lines in cloth blend shape and color into an initial composition. I find this approach intriguing because of the fluid motion created when freely cutting lines and shapes. It is a dynamic approach because the interaction of line, shape and color cause unexpected results that the artist needs to continually respond to.
