There is always something new to see, and featured artists include:

Adam Scott Rote 

Award-winning painter Adam Scott Rote is influenced by architecture, fashion, and classic cinema. Self-taught, he uses both acrylic and gouache paints to bring to life images of the past with an ultramodern feel. Adam’s paintings have been featured in books and magazines, and his collectors include famous singers and actors. 

Sarah Janece Garcia 

Sarah Janece Garcia is a Dallas artist who works in watercolor to create nature-inspired paintings. She’s known for her unique point of view and vivid use of colors, and her work is showcased in group exhibitions worldwide. Sarah states that nature’s beauty enriches her soul, and she enjoys exploring its mix of strength and gentleness in her work. 

Gabriela Villarreal 

Born in Mexico, Gabriela Villarreal’s dynamic personality and art are the products of the environment in which she was raised. Her artistic mother fostered her creativity, and today, Gabriela is a restless artist who is always painting new forms and spaces. 

Isabelle Dupuy 

Isabelle Dupuy spent her childhood in the countryside of Provence, and she later developed her artistic skills at the Les Beaux Arts School as a young adult. She enjoys transporting the viewer to open spaces, and bases many of her paintings on the stunning French countryside. Isabelle is interested in the dynamic use of color and texture, and she paints the side of the canvas so landscapes can exist beyond conventional borders.
