    Meet Cindy Klapp


    Cindy Klapp born and raised in Northwest Indiana, received a B.A.S. in Studio Art from Indiana University and a B.F.A. from Illinois Institute of Art for Communication Arts. Working several years as a graphic designer, video designer, and painter.

    My Art comes from what I know best, the land of the Midwest. My passion is to bring the audience closer to sense color, to explore the possibilities, and experience the culture of the Midwest. I want the audience to feel the warmth of the sunset and the tranquility of the waters of the Great Lakes. I enjoy the affects of these color relationships, light – dark, bright- dull and warm- cool.

  • Meet Julie Flemming

    My art work is awesome because it is Out of this World! But in this world, I am new to photography. It has become my passion. I really love editing. I love taking a simple photo and transforming it into a piece of artwork. I hope you enjoy my work!

  • Meet Ronald Stec

    Born in La Porte, Indiana, my first paintings exhibited at 12 plein-air in Kalamazoo. I graduated from the American Academy of Art Chicago in 1962. During military service I painted commissioned works for fellow soldiers. I married in Germany, graduated from the State University for Fine Art Kassel (M.A. in fine art and art education). After my wife’s death in 1996, I devoted my entire attention to art. Numerous exhibitions and commissioned works followed. I returned to the United States in 2007, live and work in Southwest Michigan.
    The realistic styles of Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth and the Dutch Masters with their use of light and shadow influenced me. I paint in oil and consider myself a realist and landscape painter. My attention is especially focused on the delicate nuances of nature that are manifested in the change of light and shadow. My paintings relate the diverse moods of nature and tell a story in which painting and beholder are mutually implicated.
