Kaffee KangKaffee Kang, Painter

"Artists make statements. Painters make paintings. I have come to realize that I am simply and wholeheartedly a painter. I love the creamy texture of oil paints, fluid enough to blend into smooth transitions and stiff enough to delineate sharp edges. I love that each color I mix is unique, never the same as the last or the next. I love the suppleness of my brushes, allowing me to make the faintest line or the broadest sweep. I love the resilience of the canvas as it gently pushes back against my strokes. And I love the images that emerge, softly glowing back at me, images that are never exactly as I envisioned, but somehow always satisfying."

Kaffee holds a B.A. from Harvard University and a M.Arch. from the University of Pennsylvania. After retiring from a fulfilling 40-year career as a professional architect, she is dedicating her time to her passion for painting. She paints in a representational mode that is guided by a contemporary aesthetic. Her work is held in private collections and has been exhibited at the following venues:

Joe McGillJoe McGill, Woodturner

"For many years, my creative efforts were focused on 'flat board' work, i.e., furniture design and construction. While I derived great pleasure from producing fine joinery and handsome, functional pieces, I found the process limiting. On a whim, I purchased a used lathe and was immediately captivated. I love everything about the process of taking a piece of wood from a storm-felled tree and turning it into a functional or decorative object. Chainsawing a block of wood to discover and assess what it has to offer; mounting the piece on the lathe to take advantage of those characteristics; the lubrication of the cutting edge by the water in the wood; and the movement of my body as the tool shapes what the wood wants to be, are all captivating to me."

Joe is a past president of Central New England Woodturners. He has taught woodturning at the Lincoln-Sudbury Adult Education program. His work is displayed in many homes and used by many families, across the country. He has exhibited at:
