  • Natalia Torres del Valle makes abstract and highly textural paintings build on memories of natural landscapes that she has seen. Her intuitive approach to materials and process is influenced by her expressive arts therapy practice. Natalia’s creative process searches for what is under the surface and responds to the unpredictable forms that emerge. She hopes that her work encourages a deeper intimacy with and a sense of urgency to protect the natural world.
  • Egg in Nest is a unique Art Studio offering Art Classes for children and adults in the Southwest Raleigh, Cary and Apex area. Children of all ages gather in small groups to make art and enhance creativity. Each student works independently on art projects of their choice! We offer after-school, home-school and track-out art class times and evening hours for teens and adults. Painting, drawing and portfolio prep classes are held weekly during the school year and Art Camps are available in the summer. Painting lessons include watercolor, oils and acrylic drawing lessons explores graphite, charcoal, pastel and mixed media materials. 
  • Beverly Dorland finds the process of working in clay enthralling and mesmerizing. Starting out with basic elemental materials of earth and water, there are an infinite number of possible outcomes. While the final structural requirements and desired aesthetics heavily influence the making of a piece, the making of each piece is unique and a journey unto itself. Beverly finds inspiration in familiar predictable forms such as functional pottery, Victorian candy dishes, and garden rocks. She strives to create pieces that after first glance, are not considered standard interpretations.
