About the Artists

Anne Bouie

Anne Bouie’s work uses botanicals, found and repurposed objects to synthesize history and vernacular art in the visionary folk tradition. The work engages the viewer in three, aesthetically sound, serving a function in the lives of the viewers, and engender an interaction and an experience with the viewer. Years spent in rural and urban environments provide a multifaceted lens and perceptions that Bouie references and seeks to express using materials and techniques old and new, traditional and modern.


Peter Toth

Peter Toth’s work is equally influenced by Impressionist painters like Monet and Seuat as by photographers like Ansel Adams, Jimmy Williams, and the French fashion photographer Sarah Moon. With this body of work he blurs the line between the reality of photography and the painterly effects brought to life through a proprietary process in his computer.


Lisa Alexandra Ward

Lisa “Alex” Ward’s collection of monochrome photography explores nature’s creations and our creations, encapsulating her mantra of inhabited spaces, and visual meditations. A resident of Bowie, MD, Ward’s work explores beauty in objects that quietly exist in the background or boldly demands attention.
