As winter gets underway, we are excited to share the work of ten local women artists to provide inspiration for warmer weather and vacations at the beach!

There are also several works that remind us of how wonderful the beach can be in winter too!

The artists:

Ruth BeckerRuth is a multidisciplinary artist known for her layered paper artworks, as well as her abstract and landscape paintings. Her current work of bright, contemplative mountain and ocean paintings combine traditional methods with abstract, intuitive gestures to explore the play of transition lighting on landscapes. A DC native, Ruth lives and works in Chevy Chase, Maryland, recently returned to the area after twenty-five years abroad. She is represented by Long View Gallery in Washington DC.

Susan T. Billington – Susan T. Billington’s color-drenched canvases have been described as “happy-calm.” Her paintings employ a wide-ranging yet controlled color palette. Using multiple paint layers, Billington creates quiet drama. After a long career as a speech-pathologist and making art in her spare time, Billington has recently turned to painting full-time. She exhibits in collective shows in the D.C. area and sells her artwork via her website or private commissions.

Megan Elizabeth – Megan lives and works just outside of Washington, DC. Her work has recently been featured at Superfine Art Fair in Washington, DC, at an Art Fair in Paris in January 2022, at a solo show at Gallery B in Bethesda, Maryland and at Umbrella Art Fair in Washington, DC. Upcoming shows include a show in Washington, DC at Martha Spak Gallery in October 2022 and a solo show at Broadway Galleries in Great Falls, VA in early spring 2023. Additionally, artwork is available to private collectors through several art agencies and direct commission.

Madeleine Greenwald – I am an artist with a serious case of wanderlust. I love to travel and my paintings are inspired by the people and places I love. In painting I get to relive experiences and share those moments with others. I use bright colors and bold brushstrokes to convey emotion in my paintings. My favorite color to paint with is quinacridone magenta and it is in all my paintings.

As a Toronto based artist until 2022, I was a member of the North Toronto Group of Artists and the Lawrence Park Arts Collective . I recently moved back to the Washington DC Area and am a member of Chevy Chase Artists (Ch/Art) and the Montgomery Arts Association. I am exhibiting throughout the DMV including shows at District Arts in Frederick, Maryland; Circle Gallery in Annapolis, Maryland; at the Rehoboth Art League in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware; and at The Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia.

Kara Holman – Kara lives in Washington D.C. with her husband and son and is a strategy consultant for non-profit and mission-driven organizations. Originally from Ohio, Kara studied art studio and art history at The University of Akron Meyers School of Art and has spent the last few years continuing her drawing and painting studies. She loves exploring color and emotion in her subject matter and to capture the essence of a moment.

Logan MacKethan – My work focuses on the effects of nature and the power of creation. Through large scale paintings with oil and acrylic on canvas I aspire to create a space for positivity. The looseness of strokes in the open, remarkable skies of my landscapes reflect an emotional release. Years of photography influence my composition and color palette. I typically envision the completed work prior to beginning. And I often find an image within an image: a thumbnail that becomes a work unto itself. Through my process, the intent is to shift the viewer away from the mundane – to absorb ephemeral moments that others might miss.

Pauline Rakis – My paintings have an element of discovery. I may have an idea when I start working, but the painting can often take a different direction. The laying down of shapes and colors often brings out an unexpected image that can be developed further. A traditional theme or central image emerges such as a landscape, still life, seascape or even an abstraction. The most exciting part is the unveiling of this imagery as I continue to work on each piece.

Sarah Renzi Sanders – Sarah Renzi Sanders is a mixed media artist born in Washington D.C. After ten years of teaching art to children, Sarah decided to dedicate her time to her own art practice. Known for her vibrant colors and textures, the artist explores meditation in her work. She has participated in international online exhibitions as well as in person juried shows in the D.C. metro are and New York. Sarah is the co-founder of Girls Who Paint Gallery in Kensington, Maryland. Sarah lives in Kensington with her husband, three children, and two dogs.

Kerry Richardson – Designer

Clare Winslow – Clare Winslow is an interdisciplinary artist known for her prints and paintings relating to time, nature, and current events. As a child and grandchild of Washington DC painters, Clare grew up enveloped in vibrant art and is a strong proponent of its power to promote unity and transformation. Her training includes a degree in painting, a degree in Teaching, and post-graduate study in printmaking at the Corcoran College of Art.
