SILVIA POLOTO

Brazilian-born Silvia Poloto is an accomplished artist working in a range of visual disciplines. She is known for her lively abstract canvases and mixed-media sculptures. Recognized for her dynamic compositions and color sensibility, Poloto exploits a vibrant visual vocabulary of boldness and subtlety. Her deftly handled juxtapositions unfold in rich, textured hues and expressive gesture. The result is a body of work characterized by equal amounts of surprise, playfulness and provocation. Her aesthetic choices engage the viewer on a visceral level.

LISA WEISS

Lisa Weiss’ work is about mark making, patterning, spontaneous movement, momentary awareness and paring down to essentials. She is continually looking for ways to detach from the past and future with a focus on the here and now. Weiss’ paintings are process driven by movement, repetition, materials and place. Her works are for beauty and contemplation.

MICHELLE Y WILLIAMS

Imperfections, flaws, rust, asymmetry, texture, peeling paint and the principles of wabi-sabi all enliven and excite Michelle Y Williams. She approaches her blank canvas with just a beginning and no preconceived end result. Williams seeks to find balance within the work; experimenting and exploring ways to refine her craft without self-constraint. “If I am able to engage the observer, make a connection which couldn’t be conveyed verbally and ultimately elicit a visceral reaction - my work is done.”

FRESH FRUIT WITH CHEESE AND PEPPERY NUTS

This salad template is all about using whatever’s in season to play three key roles: sweet-juicy fruit, crunchy-salty nuts, and chewy-fatty cheese. We love a mix of clementines, ricotta salata, and pistachios for winter; Bosc or D’Anjou pears, parmesan, and hazelnuts for fall; persimmon, mild blue cheese, and pecans for spring; and figs, honey toasted walnuts, and Manchego for summer.
