W. Carl Burger is one of New Jersey's most decorated, beloved and well-known artists. He has paintings in established collections of well known galleries around the world as well as countless private collections.
He began receiving awards early in his career and has continued to do so.
His Abstract Expressionism works are windows into scenes or visions that seem to surpass the limits of the canvas in their sheer exuberance filled with colorful passion. Although the forms of his paintings are often abstract, Burger maintains a link to the "real" world in almost all his paintings through a jubilant, vibrant, and semi-representational domain.
He feels watercolor reflects visual accuracy versus painterly spontaniety. He believes agonizing over an area of a composition can be a problem.

Margaret Fanning demonstrated techniques used in watercolor to paint portraits. She discussed various stages of the process. Ms. Fanning’s interest in portrait painting began with a Vintage Series inspired by old family photos, which led to commissions for portraits in various media. Her own interpretations are added to the original images. Ms. Fanning attended the Rhode Island School of Design and received a B.F.A. in painting from Savannah College of Art & Design. She has won multiple awards for her work and currently teaches at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton and the Farmstead Arts Center in Basking Ridge.
