Joe attended the College Conservatory of Music in Cincinnati, and received a Bachelor of Music degree. Even during this time period, he felt that he should have been carrying a paint brush to school and not sheet music. After college, he was drafted into the Vietnam War, but he was deferred into the American Peace Corps where he spent six years teaching English in Dakar, Senegal, West Africa. It was during this time period that Horton received his first art instruction from a local teacher and presented his first exhibition.

Continuing to study art at the Art Students’ League in New York City and at the National Academy of Design, he was awarded the Mayshark Scholarship at the League. After finishing up his studies, Horton opened up his own studio in Sante Fe, New Mexico. For the last twenty- five-years, his oil paintings of the Southwest have been exhibited there. In 1999, he exhibited a one-man show in Lake Worth on the landscapes of Key West. In 2012, he did another one-man show entitled “The Beauty of Man” which featured over 45 figurative male oil paintings. Once again he is doing another one man show entitled “Extremes – Lake Worth to Sante Fe.” The show, with 54 oil paintings will encompass a wide range of styles from impressionism to realism. The exhibit will feature paintings from his time living here in Florida and in New Mexico, as well as, paintings from his travels.

Painting by Dina Gustin Baker

 

Dina hails from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she always had a love affair for art in its most abstract of forms. She attended the Barnes Foundation and received a full scholarship to the Art Students League, in New York City. During this time period, she participated in various exhibitions and continued working out of her own studio.

Painting by Dina Gustin Baker

 

Presently, she has had over 33 one person shows and has spent her entire life being committed to her passion. Her work is her own expressive style of conceptual and abstract paintings. For Baker, her art is her way of exploring and discovering her own feelings in terms of colors, forms and movements. While her work is considered to be very introverted, it allows those watching her work to emotionally connect with her pieces. Baker has said that “painting is poetry without words, music without sound, and freedom without loss.”
