FEATURED AT THE 3/26 SHOWCASE · MORE TO BE ADDED - KEEP CHECKING BACK!
Nick Zelenenki, a traveling landscape/adventure photographer from Union NJ, spent the last 7 months living in the Grand Canyon shooting both antique film cameras and digital format.
I started with photography in 1985 and specialized later in specific areas of Fine Art Photography including micro/macro, infrared, and B&W photography. I still have my own darkroom and perform traditional film and silver gelatin based print development. When I take a photo, I want to reveal the atmosphere of this moment and keep the natural touch.

Offering fabric and embroidered personal accessories and home décor, as well as freestanding lace.
LEE TEN HOEVE

PAINT WITH FIRE
Pyrography is the art of wood burning imagery with a hot tool. Daniela can burn an image or saying on most wooden items, ranging from jewelry to photo holders, custom art work, family monograms, nursery art, and more.
I love taking pictures of still life, landscapes, nature, and animals. Anything in those categories I just love. I pretty much get inspired by colors, shapes, or anything different. My inspiration changes depending on the situations I find myself in. Sometimes an idea just pops in my head and I just do it. I feel every artist is unique and their tastes are different. I can’t fit myself in a category. I just do what I want and enjoy the uniqueness that each moment presents.
Featuring mixed media paintings on twisted canvas.

EXPRESSIONS BY JAKE
I am a dynamic photographer and creative thinker who has a unique vision when exploring the natural beauty we are surrounded by every day. I often look for a challenge when it comes to capturing a particular scene, and have been known to wait several weeks or months just for the Sun or Moon to line up in the right position. Patience, Persistence, Composure, Endurance. These traits define my method.
