About the Artists
Susanne Eisinger’s lifelong love of fine art, lead her to begin her formal art education at the Corcoran School of Fine Art, Washington, DC, (where she studied under the esteemed artists Gene Davis and Leo Berkowitz) and Montgomery College, Maryland.
Eisinger received her Bachelor in Studio Art from the University of Maryland and her Masters Degree from the Vermont College of the Union Institute and University in Vermont, winning several university awards and scholarships.
Eisinger has exhibited in numerous juried shows. She won first and second places during her exhibitions. Her works are in both private and corporate collections.
Isabella Pizzano was born in Rome, Italy where she earned a B.A. in Fine Arts specializing in clay sculpture. Pizzano moved to the US where she followed art classes under the tutoring of top contemporary American artists. She was enamored with abstract and mixed media compositions. Among her major achievements she won the “Vanguard Award” with the National Watercolor Society, International EWxhibition, 2015, Palo Alto, California.
Today her work is mostly abstract expressionism. She likes to experiment with different techniques, mostly water media, inks, and collages, using rare archival papers.
A Texan by birth, Max-Karl Winker has lived in the Washington, DC area since 1984. Winkler studied English and Studio Art at The University of Texas at Austin, where he received BA, BFA, and MFA degrees. He have taught studio art and art history at colleges in Texas, Colorado, California, Virginia, and Maryland, and is now retired from a fifteen-year career as a scientific illustrator at the Smithsonian Institution and the National Academy of Sciences.
In recent years Winkler has worked as a full-time illustrator and artist, and as a part-time teacher (in the Smithsonian Associates Program of the Smithsonian Institution). His works have shown in many national and regional juried exhibitions since 2004; they are in the permanent collections of The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Georgetown University, The National Museum of American History, The Smithsonian Institution, and The Library of Congress. He is active in the Washington Print Club and is a former president and vice president of the Washington Printmakers Gallery; Winkler has written a number of reviews (for The Washington Print Club Quarterly and for the Journal of the Print World) of exhibitions at The National Gallery of Art and other local and regional venues.
