Gael ClausonGael Clauson is a retired speech-language pathologist and reading specialist who has always had an affection for artistic lettering and watercolor painting. After studying formal calligraphy, she chose instead the playful and creative style of hand lettering to decorate anything she could get her hands on. She is also a self-proclaimed pen/ marker hoarder and can be seen stalking stationary stores. Gael keeps a sketchbook journal, a watercolor journal, a gardening journal, a travel journal, a film journal and a lettering journal...some of which you will see here. She is honored to be participating in this show.

Leah Goat retired after 17 years in the Dartmouth College libraries and now pursues her gardening passion as a volunteer. When she tried to take studio art in college, she was told she had no aptitude, but Stephanie found otherwise. Thank you, Stephanie! Watercolor painting is a delightful form of visual meditation.

Stephanie Gordon has been an artist and craftsperson her whole life. She trained as an artist in college and has taught art to all ages, from kindergarten to adult. She taught art at Hanover High School for 18 years before retiring. She currently teaches community art classes for adults and teens. Gordon has most recently been making encaustic paintings. Encaustic painting is a very ancient method of creating luminous art from pigmented molten waxes. The word encaustic comes from the Greek word "enkaustikos", meaning "to burn in". Each layer of melted wax must be fused to the one underneath with heat. She incorporates many techniques from other media into these encaustics. Gordon always enjoys exploring new media. She had a wonderful time and learned much in Stephanie Reininger's watercolor classes.

Jean Kluk discovered the joy of painting watercolors as a young mother in Connecticut. But it was not until the 2004 Washington, NH, Flea Market that she first debuted her work. Jean has since donated two renderings of the Washington Historical Society's barn for fundraising raffles and has painted numerous commissioned works. Most recently her work was selected for the 2013 Juried Regional Exhibition at the Newport Library Arts Center. Jean has conducted several watercolor workshops in Utah where she spends time skiing and painting in the Wasatch Mountains. She resides in bucolic Washington, New Hampshire. "Life is about the number of times your breath is taken away by the beauty and wonder of nature. To capture even a fraction of those beautiful moments will be my life's goal."

Sze PangSze Pui Pang was born in Hong Kong. She received a Licence de Lettres Modernes at the Université de Paris VII. She was a translator at the United Nations for 22 years. Sze started painting 16 years ago. Painting plein air has allowed her to be fully present in the moment and to truly see what is in front of her.




Stephanie Reininger after graduating from Colby Junior College, went on to Bennington College graduated with a BA in Studio Art. It was years after before she became serious about painting and had the time to do it. Bennington did not teach watercolor, so Stephanie took it up in the midst of raising children because it was portable and would not set the house on fire. She took workshops and joined watercolor societies, won many awards. She has painted while traveling in Europe and Mexico and continues to paint and teach wherever she lives.
