Image result for artist paletteNANCY REED JONES

Nancy Reed Jones is an award winning artist living and working in the beautiful Hudson Valley.  Nancy was trained at the Huntington Art League on Long Island where she lived most of her life.

Nancy owned her own mural business for many years on Long Island and painted murals for the cancer patients in the hospitals there.  Her murals were painted directly on the walls in the patient’s rooms where they could be viewed from their beds.  These murals were used for “Guided Imagery” which is a technique where the patients get so engrossed in the scene that it alleviates their pain.

Nancy has developed “Art For Relaxation” classes to help people in recovery from addictions and serious illnesses.  Relaxation techniques such as soft music, flowing fountains and aroma therapy are used to help people relax and enjoy the process of learning to paint.  Nancy  now teaches at the Wallkill River School of Art where she was a member of the Board of Directors for several years.  Nancy also works for the New York Cancer Foundation teaching relaxation classes for the cancer patients.

In 2013, Nancy was chosen to receive the “Champion Of The Arts” award  from the Orange County Arts Council.  She was also voted #1 acrylic artist in the region in 2010.

ROBERT “BOB” SCULLY

ARTIST

15 Charles Street, Pine Bush, NY  12566

(845) 744-3862

Email:  rscully2@hvc.rr.com

Bob is a life-long resident of the Hudson Valley.  He was born in the City of Newburgh, and graduated from Newburgh Free Academy.  In 1985 Bob and his wife, Cathy, moved to Pine Bush where they now reside.  After working at IBM for 28 years as a mechanical designer, Bob retired and began teaching drawing and painting and eventually opened Bob-Cat Studio, a picture framing shop.  The custom picture framing was a natural step, incorporating his artistic creativity and working with his hands.

Bob’s artistic background has been basically self-taught, until the early 1970’s, at which time he began painting instruction with John and Paul Gould at the Bethlehem Art Gallery.  Since then he has studied under Daniel Greene, and attended the Scottsdale Artist School Workshops.

Bob still teaches painting and drawing privately in his studio adjacent to his home, and  he favors a realistic style and holds a special regard for the Hudson River School influence which he passes on to his students.  One of the things Bob wants his students to do is to paint like themselves and not imitate someone else.  Bob says, “I always tell my students that if you want to paint like me, you will always be second best.  You should want to paint like you.”

His works vary, never settling on one particular subject.  This has always been so because he finds an interest in all things.  Most recently Bob has been inspired by the scenery in trips to the Southwest.

Bob has been a member of many art organizations over the years, and is currently a member of the Orange County Arts Council, Middletown Art Group (MAG) and the Crawford Arts Association.
