George Dirolf

George Dirolf  is a painter, printmaker, and graphic artist.

His paintings range from plein-aire oils to larger scale studio work. Subjects are the landscape, snowplows, and trains. He often incorporates relief text or images into these paintings.

As a printmaker he works in relief prints: woodcuts, wood engravings, and linocuts. Images again derive from the landscape; birds, plants and insects round out his interests.  A recent series of engravings are entitled "A Suite for St. Francis".

He also works in large scale charcoal drawings on mylar, most of which begin with photographic resources shot while hiking in the Adirondacks, Catskills, Colorado, and California.

Robert Moylan

Robert Moylan works masterfully in gouache. His panoramic landscapes are brightly colored celebrations of the rural beauty of Rensselaer and Washington counties in New York. In the tradition of the Hudson River School, luminous sunsets and dramatic skies ride above farm houses, barns, silos and fields that serve as reminders of the human existence within these natural settings. Painstakingly rendered with intricate detail, Moylan’s pieces convey a view that is both vast and expansive.

Harry Orlyk

Harry Orlyk was born in Troy, New York in 1947. In 1971 after graduating college, he went on to graduate school at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln . Over the next nine years, he was influenced by several Nebraskan artists. “Still-life painter Robin Smith taught me how to use paint without turpentine – to paint from the tube.” He also admits the influence of photographer Lawrence McFarland who taught him what spiritual space was, and how to emphasize it. Lastly he credits well-known Lincoln painter Keith Jacobshagen with having impressed on him the importance of routine. He currently resides with his family in Salem, New York, near the Vermont border.
