Gabe Brown creates gorgeous landscapes that celebrate nature and the changing seasons. She creates a world of parallel universes that reward us with spaces of both vastness and intimacy. Gabe’s depiction of nature is sensuous; bursting forth and performing for us. Her palettes are bold and elegant. She employs a mystical layering of motifs of water, land, leaves, mountains, rainbows and rocks in complex variations. There is a great deal of control in her work and as well as a freedom and letting go. Her universe is full of mystery and wonder and each work moves us closer to nature and ourselves. As Gabe says “Art is like magic, an illusion created by the force of humanity.”
Gabe Brown was raised in New York City. She received her BFA from The Cooper Union and was awarded a full fellowship to attend the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She received her MFA in painting from the University of California, Davis. Gabe is a 2018 recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Painting Award. She has exhibited in many shows including Kenise Barnes Contemporary Art, Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, Matteawan Gallery, The Saratoga Arts Center, PULSE Miami Art Fair, Garrison Arts Center, ArtsWestchester, Schweinfurth Arts Center, SUNY Brockport, the Horticultural Society of New York, Sears-Peyton Gallery and Carrie Haddad Gallery.

The sculptures of Scott Hazard are tactile and poetic, allowing our minds to relax, slow down and linger over his gentle phrases and quiet meanings. Scott creates sculptures with hand torn paper and text that depict gardens and landscapes with both order and serenity. The lulling text serves as a mantra and a reminder of how important nature is in our lives. His sculptures are an homage to mountains, rolling hills, rivers, caves, snow and poetry, with important links to both Japanese and Chinese gardens. Scott reminds us that the “origin of the English word garden refers to a sense of enclosure…creating a safe haven” The craft in his work is extraordinary and the vision quietly brilliant. They have depth and warmth, focus and peace.
Scott was born in California and received a degree in Landscape Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He received an MFA in sculpture, photography and video from the University of Florida. He is the recipient of an Artist Fellowship in Visual Arts from the North Carolina Arts Council. Scott has exhibited at CAM Raleigh, Mixed Green in NYC, Second Street Gallery in Charlottesville VA, Goucher College, Davidson College, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Art Miami Context, Art Silicon Valley and The Reveal Art Fair.
