About the Artists

Alex Jamison, Cuernavaca I, pigment inkjet print

Alex Jamison

After earning an undergraduate degree in Physics from Cornell University, Alex Jamison turned his attention to the art of photography and the fine print. His four year apprenticeship in Arizona with Frederick Sommer gave him an understanding of the physics of the visual field and the possibilities of the silver-gelatin print, and introduced him to the design fundamentals underlying the visual arts. His more recent studies in painting and drawing with Hayes Friedman focussed on the integrity of pictorial space; the development of palette; the manipulation of form; and the progressive accretion of the painterly surface.
Jamison earned a Master of Fine Arts in Visual Information Technologies from George Mason University. He has photographed art, artifacts, and architecture for a variety of institutional, commercial, and private clients, including a number of Smithsonian museums, most recently producing publication photographs for the National Museum of African American History and Culture.  He taught photography classes at George Mason University as well as the Corcoran Corcoran College of Art + Design. Jamison has exhibited his photographs at the The Tartt Gallery and David Adamson Gallery in Washington, DC, and at Tallera David Alfaro Siqueiros in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

Suzanne Vigil, A Quiet Moment, colored pencil on layered Duralar

Suzanne Vigil

Born and raised in Washington, D.C and currently living in Alexandria, Vigil retired from the Drug Enforcement Administration as Art Director.  She received a B.F.A. from the University of Kentucky and studied extensively at the Corcoran School of Art. Vigil began working in colored pencil before it was an acceptable medium in most juried shows but has seen it grow in status.  What makes her work so unique is she works both sides of Durlar film achieving stunning layers of color and depth in her hyper-realistic style.  A member of the national organization Colored Pencil Society of America for 4 years, she won their highest award this year over 800 contributions. She has shown her work throughout the U.S., received many Best in Show awards and has been published in Strokes of Genius and CP Treasures and Artist magazine numerous times.
