Get up close and personal with a few of the local artists.
Metal sculptor Paul Lockhart lives and works on a farm outside Cambridge. This coffee table depicts a school of rockfish (striped
bass), with some crabs and oysters underneath. Paul says he had always drawn and painted as a kid, but his artistic impulses
turned toward metal after he learned how to weld while he was an engineer in the U.S. merchant marine.

Kyra Kristof Pincheira says that when she and her husband moved to town, "The thing we were most impressed by and charmed
by in Cambridge was the quality of the art here." She has added to that quality with her own paintings.

Painter Polly Cox, who lives near Oxford, Maryland, says, "The reason I love Cambridge is that I can get here by boat." Polly often paints portraits and landscapes because, she says, they "allow me to see and become involved with a person or place I might otherwise have missed."
Willy Schlossbach enjoys working and interacting with his fellow artists at 447 Studios & Gallery. "We're having fun here,"
he says. He paints with oil and acrylic, usually depicting spare landscapes and street scenes. "I'm a fan of Edward Hopper
and what I would describe as his "unadorned aloneness,'" Willy says.
