Introducing Four Visual Artists Exhibiting in Still Point I

Ione Citrin, painter, from Los Angeles, California...
Ione's abstract art is loose and free flowing and has been described as "intuitive," "spontaneous," creating a sense of "limitless space," having "light interact with matter in a way that breaks down the barriers between the physical and the ethereal."

Carla Kathryn Cope, sculptor, from Sarasota, Florida...
I am inspired to create images that remind us of our emotions. I draw from nature the shapes, textures and movements that make us feel the drama of our world. As humans we have a direct connection with the elements of earth, without them we become sluggish and unhealthy. I study the effects of these elements on our psyche and the emotions that they create. My work is a tool to rekindle that lost sense of mystery and awe from our lives. I strive to pause the viewer for a few quiet moments so that they can reanalyze their feelings in relation to the art and our world.

I received my Associates degree from Miami-Dade Community College in Fashion Design. I have designed for Fashion Design houses, as well as costume design and character design for Walt Disney World and MGM Studios. I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Visual Arts/Sculpture from Purchase College, NY. I have also studied abroad at the Ballyvaughn School of Art in Ireland. I have participated in group shows in Ireland, Japan, New York City, Texas, California, and Florida. I have been published in the Magazine of the Arts.

Anita Masterson Johnson, from Valentine, Nebraska...
Currently residing in the Sandhills of Nebraska, Anita holds a Bachelor of Art from Sam Houston State. Anita has been chasing her passion of photography since being the yearbook photographer in high school. After years of living in larger cities such as Houston and Dallas her family relocated to rural Nebraska. Surrounded by wildlife and great open spaces Anita strives to capture the surreal essence of the land and the beings that inhabit the area.

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre, from Miller Place, New York...
Eileen Baumeister McIntyre is a contemporary realist artist whose work emerges from devotion to the representation of still life, landscapes and botanical art. In each of the mediums Eileen works in, it is the nuances of light that accent the tender realities of her images. These mediums include colored pencil, oil pastel, watercolor, oil paints and the obscure medium of silverpoint. Eileen is also a jewelry designer as well, specializing in fused glass with silver pieces.

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre's work has been shown primarily in east and west coast galleries as well as in numerous national and international juried shows. Her artwork is in many private collections throughout Europe and the United States.

Eileen Baumeister McIntyre attended Long Island University/Southampton on an art scholarship, graduating Cum Laude in 1988. She then went on to receive her Masters Degree from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1991 and continued her studies at The School of Visual Arts in New York and Long Island University/C. W Post.
