In addition to achieving recognition as a group, individual member's works are well known in a broad area. They are represented in both public and private collections in the United States, Europe and beyond.
February Artist of the Month
The playful, mythic Artist Trina Greene is our LongReach Artist for February 2023.
Trina Greene has recently created a series of mandalas, not having any idea in mind when starting a new one. Her ideas are channeled from the unconscious. Each mandala is totally unique. Their building blocks are linear patterns repeated and were developed in a sketch book in which doodles became simple patterns then increasingly complex patterns. The mandalas are drawn with no erasure in India ink and colored w metallic powders in egg tempera. A show of the entire mandala collection is planned for 2023. Stay tuned!
