Virginia based Painter, Alexandra Leonetti,mainly focuses on classical realism portraiture and still lifes. Alex graduated with a degree in Visual Arts Education from SUNY New Paltz. She then went on to teach elementary art for several years in Florida. Deciding to put her own artwork first, she spent two years studying and then teaching classical painting in Florence, Italy. Currently, she is working on getting her MFA at Radford University.
Sculpture Artist, Zach Blevins-Goad,creates sculptures where nature is his focus. Zach grew up in small town Appalachia surrounded by woods. As a child, he would climb trees and imagine them as sentient beings standing tall and graceful holding him up. From these experiences, he creates sculptures to combine nature with humanoid characteristics. Though his pieces look like they are natural and living, they are derived from steel wire, aluminum foil, tape, glue and paint. His sculptures come together beautifully to create the illusion of something organic. Zach as being working on this craft for 17 years and is currently working on his BFA at Radford University.
