April 10-25

Pictured: "Landscape #301"

Roth approaches his work by inventing from nature, and being spontaneous.  "By abstracting the forms, I try to create a sense of mood and atmosphere.  I combine a variety of textures and shapes blended with quick brush strokes to achieve a sense of lost and found.  My landscapes are built through abstration, composing them with a break up of low horizon line juxtaposed against the reflection and movement of the open sky.  I try to treat them almost as an intimate still life bringing the viewer to eye level as if it were set on a stage.   www.robertrothpaintings.blogspot.com

June 5-July 3

"The Cleveland Metroparks is filled with fabulous inspiration. It is referred to as The Emerald Necklace because it is a park system that surrounds the city and suburbs. It is made up of rivers, waterfalls, bridges, hills and winding roads, bike paths, trees, flowers, picnic areas, families of deer and other wildlife. Each season is a gift. I have painted its many faces but have not yet realized all of its beauty."  www.marydeutschman.com
