Stephen Motyka   
Stephen Motyka was born in Rhode Island in 1964 and started painting and drawing at a young age. He maintained his interest in art as a hobby throughout his schooling. Upon graduation from High School, Stephen started taking courses at the Rhode Island School of Design where he honed his skills both in watercolor and oils.

  Arnie Casavant attended the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, courtesy of the Servicemen’s Readjustment Act (better known as the G. I. Bill) and, until 2005, was an art instructor  and Art Department Chairperson at Oliver Ames High School in Easton, Massachusetts, a position which he held for 27 years.  His passion for painting has developed over the past several years.  Since retiring he has taught landscape and abstract painting at various locations in Boston and on Cape Cod through Northeastern University’s Graduate Institute in Education.  He has exhibited his work at myriad locations. Arnie prefers to work en plein air, painting largely in oil on location at dawn or dusk, when the sun’s interaction with his subject matter is at its most dramatic. Arnie adheres to the old adage that “light is the bringer of beauty,” and his work reflects a strong emphasis on the interplay of light, shape and color, and a devotion to impressionism.  “Chasing the light” best describes Arnie’s paintings; “The natural elements and my paints combine to reward me with lasting memories.”
