1st Place – Ruth-Anne Siegel – “Van Dam”
Ruth-Anne Siegel grew up on Long Island and she knew from a very young age that she wanted to be an artist. Her family encouraged her artistic interests by frequently visiting various art museums and art galleries in New York City. In pursuing her interest in art she attended the Rhode Island School of Design and received a BFA in graphic design.
Ruth-Anne spent her career working as a graphic designer in New York City and in San Francisco Bay area. She states, “Feeling a need to do artwork in a more expressive medium than graphic design, I began painting. Painting lets me explore rhythms and moods in an organic and expressive manner. My largest series, Memories of the Bridge, represents my reminiscences of driving to and from New York City over the 59th Street Bridge. The paintings are emotive and fluid. Light and atmosphere infuse my translations of a specific time and place”.
Her work resides in collections throughout the United States as well as internationally. http://www.siegelstudio.com

Kammerzell paints objects, landscapes and collage-type imagery infused with a distinctly romantic air. He seeks to put the viewer in a time machine, but one where the boundaries of memory and longing are blurred. Is that the way it really was? Or do we wish to remember it that way?
All of his paintings are grounded in visually strong compositions and executed in vibrant colors. Either directly or indirectly, the influence of commercial art and pop culture is usually prevalent. His work often includes the juxtaposition of natural and man-made environments. http://davidkammerzell.wix.com/david-kammerzell
