Seth was born in New York City in 1953 and has been fascinated with the sights and sounds of the urban environment from childhood. With a natural facility for tools and constructing things his early goal as an artist was to build sculpture, first as a teenager in welded steel, and then later at the Rhode Island School of Design in the early ’70s working in mixed media. His appreciation of realist paintings always beckoned however, and he kept at learning the craft until he eventually considered himself a painter. The purchase and conversion of a small oil tanker in New York harbor in 1979 as studio space and live-aboard was an initiation into the working waterfront and precipitated earning a captain’s license, learning to dive and setting up shop to do marine towing, diving, commercial salvage, launch service and line handling. During the same period he built and converted truck mounted cranes and used specialized equipment and techniques to perform rigging and transportation services of monumental sculptures for artists, galleries and museums in the NYC area.
Born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin in 1951, Kenn spent much of his childhood on the family farm near Burnett, Wisconsin. His fondness for nature became the catalyst for his art. Kenn’s parents encouraged his artistic education and following High School, he attended Layton School of Art in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After graduation from Layton in 1973, he embarked on his professional career in Design and Illustration. As a commercial designer and illustrator Kenn received many awards at both local and national levels, which included acceptance in the Annual Society of Illustrators Show in New York. Although Kenn took pride in his commercial successes, his heart always belonged to the fine art of outdoor painting.

Julyan Davis is an English-born artist who now resides permanently in the South. He received his art training at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London. In 1988, having completed his B.A. in painting and printmaking, he traveled to the South on a painting trip that was also inspired by an interest in the history of Demopolis, Alabama and its settling by Bonapartist exiles. Davis is known for his paintings of the Low Country of South Carolina and Georgia, Western North Carolina and the Coast of Maine. Davis works on both plein air and studio pieces. After years of traditional realism his work has evolved to incorporate aspects of modernism, resulting in paintings that combine traditional techniques such as glazing with an emphasis on the abstract qualities of his subject. His work is in many private, public and corporate collections including the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, the Greenville County Museum of Art, and the Morris Museum of Art.
William R. Davis has a national reputation as one of the best marine artists presently working in the United States. Mr. Davis grew up in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. He is a self-taught artist whose oil paintings typically capture the serene light of sunrise or sunset on the water. He employs many of the techniques traditionally used by American luminosity painters to realize his personal vision, showing a marked preference for 19th century subjects. Bill had his first show at Richard Bourne Company 1983 along with an artist friend Elizabeth Mumford. The show was well received and attended by Lee Remick and Jackie Onasiss. This was the beginning of a very long list of shows all over the country.

He has been exhibiting his paintings since the early 1980’s, participating in group shows in California, New Mexico and elsewhere.

Demers, having drawn and painted from a very early age, furthered his education at the School of the Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, MA, and the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston, MA.
tradition, he has built his career on richly painted, atmospheric vistas of cities, coasts, and the landscape throughout the United States and internationally—from the pristine Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia, to the hill towns of Tuscany. An inveterate traveler, he has painted throughout the Caribbean, Central America, Europe and Scandinavia. Yet his passion always draws him back to the marshes and landscape of his beloved Georgia and South Carolina Coast.
Jeffrey T. Larson was born in 1962 in Two Harbors, Minnesota and grew up in the Twin Cities. At the age of seventeen he began his classical studies with traditional atelier training under Richard Lack at the Atelier Lack in Minneapolis, MN. Following his four- year training at Atelier Lack(1980-1984), Larson studied the work of the masters in the United States and abroad. These exercises included sculpting, which granted Larson a superior understanding of volume and form that is evident in his paintings today. Larson also served as the assistant Director and Head Instructor at Atelier LeSeur in Minnesota (1984-1986)
Joseph McGurl was born in Massachusetts in 1958. He grew up working with his father, James McGurl, who was a muralist and his most influential teacher. Through him, he was exposed to a wide variety of materials and learned an appreciation of the craft of painting. Another early influence was Ralph Rosenthal, a teacher at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. He subsequently graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a dual major in painting and education. He also studied in England and Italy. After college, he worked for a period of time as a yacht captain, sailing throughout the east coast from Maine to the Caribbean. After a few years he realized that in order to improve, he must devote himself solely to painting. In search of a more solid training in drawing, he sought out Robert Cormier, a devotee of the French Academy methods and he studied figure drawing under him.
Billyo O’Donnell thrives on his passion for creating paintings en plein air that mark the exact point in time at which his inspiration happens. He thinks of his paintings as a diary of his artwork telling a story of himself at that moment. When he paints, it reminds him of how he must react spontaneously to inspiration in life or chance losing that significant experience. And, it is his easy nature in his style of living, synchronizing with the ease he feels when creating his works of art, that make those moments unique.
Born in Sweden in 1945, he became a resident of Corpus Christi, Texas from where he became one of the most recognized American wildlife sculptors in the late 20th century. He has done numerous public commissions.In 1998, he won the top award at the Prix de West show in Oklahoma City for his bronze “Ocean’s Cradle.” The work depicts a mother otter cradling her pup and resulted from a three-day trip in the Pacific Ocean sketching and photographing sea otters and their pups cavorting in the waters off California’s Monterey Peninsula.
