Ratté, Michèle. Michèle’s artworks incorporate metal, textiles, and objects from nature. Her approach involves “a process of collecting, drawing, printing, shaping and sewing.” She was awarded a US Patent in 2006 (co-inventor is Joan Morris, Master Dyer at the Dartmouth College Department of Theater) for a textile printing method that results in permanent coatings of surfaces with precious and base metals. Her work is held in the collections of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, the Rhode Island School of Design Art Museum, and many private collections.

Vespoli, Nancy Parssinen. Nancy has worked with paint media throughout her life though it has never become a profession. She is currently experimenting with exercises in watercolor to express the magnificence of natural and architectural beauty she witnesses in her travels and environs. Watercolor is difficult to master but offers a brilliance and temporal effect unique unto it as a painting medium. The exercises she presents in this exhibit show scenes from New England to Wyoming to Argentina, and include a beach, mountains and architecture.
