Confluence of Eclectic Influences

ArtBrake! is honored to have among our artists, Dr. Richard (Dick) Seed.

The art of Dick Seed is a magical glimpse into the complexities of the man himself. 

Upon retirement, Dick transitioned from Scientist, Teacher, Professor, Researcher, School of Public Health Chair … 
to full time Artist. 

Using media ranging from pen and ink, watercolors, metal, and wood, Dick creates visual pictures of abstract themes. His unexpected art spans from to frolicking to reflective and wistful.

Initially interested in Cubism, his sight turned to interpretations of objects through the geometric form and structure of the triangle. He has thence been donned the father of the new art, “Trianglism.” 

Whether carved animals, fantasy beings, whimsical canes, intricate wood murals, or contemporary works from found objects, Dick’s genius shines through his artistic variations in all their forms. 

Make sure to allow yourself enough time to spend in his studio, laughing, touching, exploring and pondering the inspired diversity in his inventive world.

"With Wings as Eagles"    Stained Glass by Regina Bridgman

Regina and Jim Bridgman share studio and gallery space in his grandparents’ old farmhouse on Jones Ferry Road. Jim has a feel for nature, the earth, and the woods in this area.  From his love and explorations outside, he brings nature’s beauty into the gallery in the form of walking sticks, rustic furniture, and recycled mixed media assemblage pieces. Early experiences tying fishing flies is interpreted in feather earrings and jewelry. Stained glass artworks by Regina Bridgman draw inspiration from the elements, rhythms, and patterns of nature.
