About the Artists
Helen Wright uses printmaking to explore the combination of line and color. Creating abstract drawings from nature, she is
interested in the relationships they create both on each print and in conjunction with the body of work.
Allah Ireland, a local mannequin, came to life this year. Searching various department stores
for her friends, she was disheartened to find they
had all been butchered. Her hobbies include
standing and collecting dust.

hair features that have so much movement: manes, tails,
and feath-ers Karen has published a children's book called
Day Lily, A Chincoteague Pony's Journey. She is the Director
