Tom Mulczynski

The focus of Tom’s creative efforts at present is on sculpting abstracted representations of trees, iconic symbols of life and nature, from various types of metal wire.  Drawn to the expressive power of trees, he likes to experiment with different styles and materials to express some basic truth or feeling: freedom, death, whimsy.  He draws his inspiration from the simplicity of classical Zen-inspired depictions of nature, and from singular trees that catch his eye, and hopes to inspire in the observer an increased awareness of self and of nature.  He is a self-trained artist who occasionally dabbles in acrylic paint and other media.

Commissions – I do accept commissions and am happy to work with you to create a piece of art based on your own special interests.  Please contact me directly to discuss commissions.

 

Anya Getter

Anya Getter was born and raised in Moscow, Russia.  She immigrated to United States in 1991, and having majored in Computer Science and Information Technology found a job as a Software Engineer with Fairfax County Public Schools.

Ever since she was a small child, Anya was drawn to painting, sculpture, knitting, sewing and many other forms of arts and crafts.  Working in the IT field never allowed her talents to blossom, but Anya always looked for an outlet for her creative energy.

After her twins were born in 2000, Anya first ventured into the world of formal self-expression by decorating kids’ jeans and overalls with colorful and whimsical appliques that became an instant hit among mothers looking for one-of-a-kind outfits for their toddlers. With the help of e-bay her work was selling all over the world.   As children were getting older, Anya’s interests have also changed.  She experimented with various media and eventually arrived to collage/mixed media art as a perfect match for her artistic vision.  Most of Anya’s art comes from her feelings and experiences, and is inspired by quotes or sayings that hold a special meaning to her.  Each painting has many layers to it, and you will be discovering new details each time you look at it.

Anya makes her home in Arlington with her husband, two kids and one very fuzzy dog.

She has been represented in the past by The Artists Undertaking in Occoquan, Stifel and Capra in Falls Church, and is now represented by the Gallery Underground in Arlington.

Sandi Parker primarily paints abstracts in acrylic, as well as oils in a variety of subjects. Her abstracts are richly textured, with layers of paint, sometimes including other media such as graphite pencil, oil crayon and collage, and frequently employing a scratching technique to reveal layers of color beneath and provide energy and movement. She uses a variety of non-brush tools such as palette knives, putty knives and sandpaper in her work. “My abstract work is influenced by the patina found on urban walls,” she says, “and I frequently include graffiti in my work.” She also paints impressionistic oil landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes, as well as youth sports portraits, and has a line of jewelry, “SandiSea Designs,” fashioned from seaglass.  She has been accepted into and has won awards at many local and national juried shows, held a solo show of her abstract works, “Urban Edge,” in 2016, and was commissioned in 2016 for a large-scale permanent public art installation of abstracts in Crystal City, Arlington, VA, which can be seen at 12th St. and Army Navy Drive.

Sandi Parker is available for commissions of traditional paintings from photographs, as well as abstracts commissions.
