About the Artists

Ann Barbieri was born in Washington DC and grew up in the area.  She graduated from Trinity College (now Trinity University) in DC with a major in French.  It was there that she took her first art class.  In the years after graduation she became a French teacher, moving around the country with her husband and family. Throughout that time she continued to take classes at UCLA , No VA Community College, and later at the Corcoran School of Art.

Her first exhibits were at the Washington Women’s Art Center and the Greater Reston Art Center, and, later, Touchstone Gallery. In 2004 she was chosen Artist of the Year at the Torpedo Factory.  Barbieri describes her work as loose and exuberant. She is influenced by vibrant, unexpected color interaction, music, and the mystery of negative space.

Kay Fuller
is a native Washingtonian, but spent most of her adult life in Prince Georges County, where she raised her family.  After returning to DC, Fuller began painting, first exploring representational watercolor pieces. Several years ago her work morphed into expressionistic acrylics and collage pieces, and then into non-representational abstracts.

Fuller’s current body of work “Down to Earth” explores nature through a group of paintings depicting things above, on, and below the surface of the earth.



Robert Sulkin lives in Roanoke, VA where he is Professor of Art at Hollins University and has been teaching and exhibiting in photography since 1980.

Sulkin’s works in this exhibit reflect his long-term interest in exploring dynamics among fact, fiction, life, and death. He works with the constructed image, either by piecing them together in his  studio using recycled materials or through scanned objects in Photoshop.

Sulkin holds a BA from UNC Chapel Hill and an MA and MFA from the University of Iowa.
