Patricia Isabella Byron

From an early age, her exposure to the arts became well rooted while growing up in her parents antique shop. Her curiosity of exotic countries landed the artist to reside in Turkey and Iran. During her travels throughout Europe and the Middle East, she became so captivated by the natural beauty and historical sites, that she was compelled to paint and write about her experiences. The communication conveyed through her abstract paintings is a spiritual motivation, where the subject matters are a mood-evoking interplay of emotions and symbolic reflections. While living in Tehran, Byron studied at Tehran University, School of Persian Studies & Culture, and was a writer for the British Library Ladies group. She has also received two Editors Choice Awards from the International Library of Poetry.

Segundo Huertas Aguiar 1923-2010
The paintings of Huertas Aguiar are landscape and seascape tributes to the beauty in nature. He paints poetic settings inspired by the outdoors. The mood ranges from the peaceful solitude of a mountain paradise to the blazing fury of the heated desert horizon.'' Ian Jennings, Art Critic 1977 Huertas Aguiar has been described by collectors as the Ansel Adams of painting. Just as Adams photographed the beauty of America with his camera, Aguiar has captured the majesty of our nation's landscapes and seascapes on his canvas. Huertas Aguiar was born in San Juan, Argentina in 1923. His entire life has been devoted to his paintings. As a youngster, he learned to paint outdoors using the landscapes of his native Argentina as his subjects. During his formative years, he studied carefully the works of Rembrandt, which has greatly influenced his brilliant treatment of light in his paintings. In 1965, Aguiar moved to the United States, where he eventually became a naturalized citizen. He settled in the Chicago area, where he lived for twenty- five years. During this period, Aguiar traveled extensively across America capturing virtually every region in his paintings. Today, after more than five decades of painting, Aguiar's works have become prized by collectors throughout North and South America. Every painting by Huertas Aguiar, regardless of size or subject, is a testament to his incredible ability to perfectly capture the lighting in the scene.
