Ann Judge Forget is a Cape Cod based artist whose business name is Ann Judge Design. Ann’s pieces have a bright, whimsical, abstract feeling expressing color, shape, form and movement. Ann finds inspiration from the natural beauty of landscapes, beachscapes and skyscapes. She looks for shapes and forms in nature. Sometimes, it is a sandy, hilly beach with sand ripples and formations that are left behind when the tide goes out. Other times, it is the rolling hills or a sky with textured clouds and the ever changing elements that add dimension to her work. She likes to play around with the horizon line, as it can sometimes divide the painting into thirds or in half depending on the feel for which she is searching. Ann also likes to incorporate subtle surprises between forms, adding squiggly lines in opposing colors to bring allure to the piece. She is trying to extract the essence of the image between organic shapes and the negative space. The artist usually works with acrylics but lately has added the element of oil pastel to enhance the color.

Emily Quigley is a watercolor artist and stationery designer based in Wellesley, MA.
A lifelong artist, Emily is self-taught in watercolor, which has become her medium of choice. The irony of the least forgiving and most difficult to control type of paint being the favorite of a recovering type-A perfectionist is not lost on her.
Aside from her commissioned work of pet portraits, architectural pieces, and custom wedding stationery, Emily draws inspiration from New England life. Her fondest memories are of summers spent on Cape Cod, and she aims to share that warm, comfortable, relaxed lifestyle feeling through her artwork.

Robert Ryan grew up in Newton MA and studied art at The Art Institute of Boston. He has been on Cape Cod since 2110, as an artist of oil paint. The work is primarily large and done with brush and palette knife .
His large abstracts are often very personal and emotional and are filled with brilliant color and heavy texture. Seascapes and interpretive landscapes are somewhat representative, but still done primarily through the mind’s eye and imagination, and all done in studio.

"I am rediscovering an avocation I once enjoyed many years ago. My work has become more abstract, usually with a suggestion of flowers or seascapes. I have been exploring the relationship between abstract and representational. My style is rather unique with its ethereal blend of colors used effectively to subtly portray my favorite subjects. I am more interested in capturing the effects of luminosity than in accurately recording subject seen in light and shadow. By experimenting with new techniques andproducts I can break free from some old habits and patterns. And finally I realize, as with all creative work, there are no hard and fast rules except the ones you make for yourself."
As a lifelong artist, Laurel Wilson has used drawing and painting as a means of expressing herself and connecting with others in a quiet but powerful way. Her interests in history, art, and the environment have been documented in watercolor paintings known for their intricate detail, balance, color, unique subjects, and calming moods. She prefers doing landscapes, seascapes, and close-up views of flora and fauna that she finds while hiking, kayaking, or traveling. As a resident of Cape Cod for the past forty-seven years, she has a preference for new takes on many of the area’s favorite sights and delights in finding the less traveled spots and features most have yet to discover.

Influenced by expressionist and impressionist painters, I'm mainly concerned with capturing mood through color, form and brush strokes. I've long been inspired by the landscape of my beloved Cape Cod. I'm drawn to its magical light, expansive skies and ever-changing seas. The bright colors and floral patterns of the seventies and eighties have been influencers in my work. I studied art at Southern Methodist University, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Advertising and Studio Art. I continued my studies at Montserrat College of Art, Massachusetts College of Art and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts. I am a member of the Creative Arts Center in Chatham and the Provincetown Arts Association and Museum. I show my work at Mark August in Chatham, with the Guild of Chatham Painters, and in regional shows throughout the year.
