Stephanie Arrell – Painting

Michelle Bradford – Painting

“I am inspired by a deep desire to explore color more fully. I delight in watching the colors take shape in front of me. I see this as a co-creation with gravity where beautiful, organic forms, textures and meandering lines are created which I find to be far more interesting than anything preconceived.” Michelle is the mother of a Foote sixth grader and Kindergartner.

Eliza Myers – Painting

“I have been painting in acrylics and oils since high school. I'm now well past graduate school, with a career as a neonatologist and four children, so my painting time is very limited. My current interest is portraiture and I recently challenged myself by painting one of my children.” Eliza is the parent of a Foote first grader and third grader.

Judy Rosenthal — Photography

“In addition to photography, I create in a wide range of visual art media, from work on paper to large scale site specific installations. I wrestle with ideas, and the art comes from that process. For this event I have collected works from my camera, hands and spirit that are meditative, contemplative and mysterious.” Judy has been documenting life at Foote School since 1999.
