New Artist Spotlight: Lynda Braun, Ana Cole, Jerry Gadd and Lena Levin

Every week, UGallery releases new art from our current artists and welcomes new artists to the community. We love seeing what each new week will bring. Say “Hello” to Lynda Braun, Ana Cole, Jerry Gadd and Lena Levin. These are UGallery’s newest artists! Read on below to learn a little bit more about their work.

Lynda Braun. Naples, Florida.

Lynda Braun finds home in the gentle waters of the Gulf of Mexico. With a camera in hand, Lynda approaches the shore with a sense of peace that the rippling sands and nurturing waves give her. She is drawn to the immediacy of photography because it shows the impermanence and importance of one’s surroundings.

Ana Cole. Fergus Falls, Minnesota.

Ana Cole’s main inspiration is fostered by her faith. By imbuing her photographs with the wonder she finds in spirituality, she is able to create art that is at once beautiful and captivating. Ana says, “There is a touch of antiquity in the mood and tone of the majority of my images, and my subjects are rarely modern. I feel at home with the antique and vintage.”

Jerry Gadd. Manchester, Maryland.

Jerry Gadd takes an individualistic approach to landscapes with oils and watercolors in hand. He finds inspiration from the historical old homes and barns in the Maryland region as well as the beautiful landscapes he sees while traveling. After studying with nationally known watercolorists Claude Croney and John Pellew, Jerry carved out his own personal style while retaining his realistic and traditional approach. He studied art at LeMillet School of Art and the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Lena Levin. Fremont, California.

Lena Levin says, “As a painter, I sometimes feel myself displaced in time.” The tension she feels living in the modern age adds power to her impressionistic landscape and still life paintings. She straddles the traditional and the contemporary by painting in a loose and free manner that is rooted in realism.
