Alexander Aubry

My work is concerned with observational and life painting. When observing from life, I often focus on figures, scenes, still lives or landscapes to paint and draw. I also work from imagination and memory. I am going into my senior year of the PAFA BFA program.

Eloise Avery

The VT fields forests streams ponds mountains winding roads and inspiring vistas of summer inspire my work. My loose brushstrokes evoke the drama I see around me. The daily toil of farm work and my need to paint balance each other. I’m needed for the farm to thrive and I paint so that I may thrive.

I just completed my degree at PAFA where I received a BFA in painting. My work is currently focused on the grid. I draw inspiration from its simplicity, complexity, and all the ways it can be used. The grid is found in many aspects of life, and I attempt to translate these into works of art.

Eva Kozlowski

I love working from life, and capturing the sensation of light in my paintings. Telling a story through an image allows for infinite possibilities. The excitement lies in creating any world I want in my work, and sharing it with others creates an even greater excitement.
