Bart Blumberg, a resident of Boston’s South Shore for more than two decades, has photographed and exhibited much of the natural beauty and iconic features of the area. His coastal landscapes, moonrises, sunrises, and sunsets are well known through exhibitions, social media, and his occasional appearance at arts festivals and shows. Bart is also an

Davina Perl has always “thought” in pictures. As an emotional response to her subjects, she paints what she sees and feels, capturing the subtleties of color and form, and nuances of light and shadow. She received at BFA from the College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio and attended Parsons School of Design and the Art Students League in New York City. In October of 2021, she exhibited at the Florence Biennale in Italy. In 2022, she participated in an exhibition at the Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA. Her paintings have been featured in solo and group exhibitions in galleries, including the Ambassador Gallery in New York City and Jensen Fine Art in Brookline, MA and New York City, The Copley Society, The Wilson Gallery and the Kanji Aso Gallery in Boston as well as many others throughout out New England
Dana Barunas prefers landscape painting and finds herself drawn to waterscapes; she loves the reflections and the movement of water. Ever evolving, Dana has recently ventured into abstract art. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design, at Mass College of Art. After graduation, she traveled to Europe where she remained in Munich, Germany for 13 years. Traveling throughout Europe visiting museums influenced her artistic values and appreciation of nature and art. Dana eventually settled in Pembroke and discovered pastel painting. It was love at first stroke!
