Diane PrattPhotography

Diane Pratt is a photographer who creates images utilizing many photographic processes. Her most recent work includes stunning sunsets and landscapes, beautiful lighthouses from many shorelines, and garden flowers and textures. These images are printed in a variety of sizes using printing methods such as printing on metal, canvas and traditional photographic papers.

Diane also uses black and white photographs of still life and landscapes to show a time and place often missed in our busy lives. Black and white infrared images create a feeling of "reflection" or "memories" of another time. Diane then adds color to selected images using transparent oil paint and pencils to create "mood" or "drama". she features black and white infrared images of local places such as Blair Academy, Blairstown and regional gardens.

"My love of nature, architecture and gardens is reflected throughout my work", Diane states. "I become inspired by the fleeting moments in the light on my surroundings where ever I travel and aspire to show the beauty that I see." You can contact Diane at Email and web site:

Barbara Matlaga, Glass work, Jewelry 

As featured artist at Gallery 23 for November, I have created new fused glass work based on techniques developed by Richard Parrish called “Tapestry”.  I recently took his class, offered at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, in Corning, NY.  I love this technique and want to continue to explore its’ possibilities in my work.  It combines exacting techniques that I enjoy and produces wonderful geometric designs that have the appearance of being “woven”. 

So please come and see my new tapestry work in November in the window of Gallery 23! Barbara Matlaga My Time Studio Contact:
