About the Artists

Supria Karmakar uses encaustics, mixed media, and altered books to explore her musings about life’s journey. In her artwork, stories unfold with depth, intrigue, and vibrancy.

Deborah Pryce creates in a mix of media and styles to explore the qualities of light as it dances across the mantel in the soft glow of a candle.
