Green Rice is excited to Welcome three New Studio Artists to our gallery! Come on by and see their work in person or meet them during a gallery crawl...

Caroline Coolidge Brown

Caroline's paintings and collages explore the use of text, story and symbol. Several themes seem to have emerged and informed her work including the lovely organic shapes and bright colors of summer flowers which led her to explore floral compositions, which then drew her to focus on birds within the Annunciation paintings as symbols of the Holy Spirit; as well as other major themes which have been drawn from Mary and her Catholic history. Caroline combines a number of antique prints and photos and layers them with abstract and realistic painting and drawing to create a rich surface.

Cynthia Ryan

Cynitha is a curious and passionate student of life. She sees the genuine inner glow of everything, as if looking through a window at a hidden treasure within. Having spent years of studying art and photography as well as working in high-end commercial television before returning to her love of art and Italy. She now divides her time between North Carolina and Italy with her partner and fellow artist Domenico Romano.

Domenico Romano

Domenico has been perfecting the skill of miniature art painting for almost twenty years. It was in Positano, Italy that he discovered his love for "plein air" painting. He is one of a few, if not the only artist painting on a miniature scale "en plain air". His technique of using oil paintings in an almost transparent manner on archival quality paper board renders a most delicate and exquisite effect. A steady hand and a commitment to quality, growth and sincerity as an artist make a Romano miniature a true work of art to be treasured. Come see both his miniature and plein air work at Green Rice Gallery!
