exception. By drawing nude figures and portraits, Elizabeth reveals the personalities behind the clothes, highlighting the importance of looking beyond appearances and seeing her subjects for who they truly are. She tells the stories of other women and paints for those who have been silenced or shamed, emboldening them through art and shaking limitations as she puts brush to
canvas. Ultimately, Elizabeth celebrates the human through her art.

expression continues to set him apart from his contemporaries.

the commercial art field. Following a natural inclination towards American History as a subject for fine art, Don, in the 1970's, began a series of paintings on the Westward Expansion. In 1984 he began painting Civil War subjects. With the help of professional historians and driven by his own desire to know the
most intricate visual details of the subjects he portrays; he has created some of the most remarkable military art of this
century. His focus on the Buffalo Soldier, beginning with Tracking Victorio in 1988 shone light on a subject that had rarely been chronicled in military art before. His original works can be found on display at forts Belvoir, Drum, Wainwright, Benning, Hood, Meade, Leavenworth, Sill, Riley, Campbell, the Army War College, the Pentagon, and are the pride of many public museums and countless private collections of military and western art.
One of Nigeria’s most innovative master painters, Uzoma Samuel Anyanwu is a prolific artist and photographer who inspires viewers by continually revolutionizing African fine art. Uzoma was born in the IMO State and graduated from the Department of Fine Art and Design, University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

His rigorous method involves placing pieces of textile on the canvas, ultimately matching colors, shapes and textures to create strikingly beautiful facial images. Uzoma’s
approach to art was inspired by his mother, who worked as a seamstress. As a young boy, Uzoma played with the discarded scraps of her sewing. This was his first contact with fabric, the medium that he would explore for years to come. Uzoma is a member of the Society of Nigerian Artist (SNA) and currently
lives and works in Lagos State, Nigeria.
Silas Adelanke Adeoye was born in Osun State, the South-Western part of Nigeria, in 1962. He took to fine art early, experimenting with various ideas and coming up with innovative techniques before even starting his primary education. He largely developed as an artist by himself, later joining a group of young, prominent artists at the National Museum, Lagos. His works represent a continuation in the tradition of Yoruba Art, recognizable by his choice of pigment to suit each motif. Visual art, in the historic Yoruba setting, was generally restricted to the courts of the kings and chiefs, and to religious houses. Silas believes that it is the responsibility of the modern artist to extend the enjoyment of this unique form of expression to a far broader audience in a manner that music and poetry, are today. Adeoye uses the technique of pointillism exclusively in his work, a technique that is utilized by few contemporary artists. He has participated in numerous exhibitions and fine art auctions in Nigeria and internationally, his work can be found in selected collections worldwide.
