About the Artists:
Master artist Joe Sambataro was born in Philadelphia and is a scholarship graduate from the famous Layton School of Art, with a B.F.A. degree accredited through Marquette University / Wisconsin Medical College, Milwaukee Area Technical College, and Masters Degree studies through the University of Wisconsin. A consistent award-winning artist and now judge for major art exhibits, he has earned popularity worldwide. Sambataro has had studios in Pennsylvania, Maine, Wisconsin, Florida, Okinawa and currently in Texas. His reputation is well-established and his paintings widely sought after by corporations, government agencies, and private collectors.
Judith’s creative life started with her mother’s influence and was enriched by her studies at SMU where she received her degree in art. Judith gives credit to her professors, some of whom were influential people in the art world. Jerry Bywaters was one of the Dallas Nine, a large influence on the Dallas Museum of Art. Judith furthered her art studies at UT, UNT and SMU. Renowned artists Stephen Wilder gave Judith a broader scope of art knowledge and what she can do painting. Judith enjoys stretching to achieve additional skills while enhancing technique. She loves to involve herself inside her painting, to grab every visual delight possible. Judith likes to share her visual delight and make a statement.
Becky has always been interested in oil painting, art and architecture, but “life” put her ambitions on hold until recently retiring. Now numerous travels to Europe have enabled her to acquire the true feeling of Provence and Tuscany. Enjoying the same light in the south of France that drew the masters such as Monet, Cezanne, and Renoir, she captures the brightly painted shutters, the lavenders fields and the sunflowers of that special area. The medieval villages of St Paul de Vence, Gourdon and Eze to mention a few, offer many architectural opportunities for stunning paintings. Becky teaches a weekly class in the Dallas area and gives demonstrations and workshops throughout the US and France.

Judy’s oil paintings reflect her ever-enthusiastic attention to design and light in everyday surroundings, be it the landscape, urban scene, interior, or figure. Painting loosely with a limited palette, Judy aims to capture the essence and feel of a scene, leaving detail to the viewer’s imagination. Judy grew up on her family’s ranch in Bowie, Texas, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, and is currently a resident of Arlington. Her passion for international travel has provided her with abundant worldly subjects to paint, but she also finds endless inspiration in the rugged landscapes of Texas, her native state. She finds a rewarding balance of being the mother of 2 small children and producing works of art which have won numerous awards, among them 1st Place in the National Society of Artists’ 22nd National Juried Competition, and entries in the 2005 and 2006 Oil Painters of America National Juried Competition.
Joel was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1971 and at the very young age of 7, he developed OCD, leaving him tortured for years with the extreme routines. Growing up, he was not artistic at all. In 2003, Joel was living in London and had a feeling of freedom that he had never tasted before, which led to an overwhelming urge to paint flowers: big, bold, bright flowers. With no formal training, Joel created his first painting – Dolly. Joel gave up painting for the next few years to pursue other ventures and it was not until November 2010, after a trip to Singapore, that Joel had an overwhelming urge to paint again. He now spends every spare moment painting and donates 50% of all gross sales from his art to charity.
A native of New York, Lucille Cole Carter evolved from a very successful fashion and furniture illustrator into an outstanding fine artist, recognized regionally and nationally for her vivid oil, pastel and acrylic paintings. Carter is an associate member of Oil Painters of America and the Portrait Society of America. She is an award-winning, signature member of Associated Creative Artists, a signature member and President of the Pastel Society of the Southwest, and a signature member of the Pastel Society of America. Carter's work has been represented by galleries across the United States, Canada and Mexico. She is represented by The Artists' Showplace Gallery in Dallas, Texas, of which she is a partner, and Carson Art, Dallas.
Chris was born June 4, 1952 in Blythe, California. His ambition has been to be a good artist and a better Christian. Flowing from his artistic talent and through progressive experimentation with various methods and materials Chris creates works that are inspiring unlike any seen before. At age twenty-four, Chris was recognized by President Ford in a ceremony at the White House for his Bicentennial Table. Stromberg's works can be seen at the Smithsonian, Pentagon, Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, Opryland Hotel and many other sites. Stromberg's newest endeavor is painting diaphanous paintings, an art form he created. Stromberg has labeled his translucent painting genre', Diaphanism. Diaphanous paintings allow light pass through the paints and canvas. His completed paintings glow with rich vibrant colors. Each Stromberg painting is an original that cannot be duplicated. He is known as the "Artist of Light" for utilizing Art and Light in his works over the past 35 years.
