MEET THE ARTISTS
Tammy Brown, inspired by the enchanting allure of the natural world, paints landscapes that speak volumes about her connection to the environment. Using walnut-based oil paints in the alla prima technique, she infuses her canvases with vivid colors that capture nature's chromatic opulence. From the gardens of Sweden to her own Austin backyard, Tammy's paintings resonate with the essence of special moments experienced outdoors.
Matt Lynaugh, with a background in graphic design, bridges the gap between natural landscapes and abstract forms in his artwork. Having focused on landscapes since 2020, Lynaugh's process involves on-site sketches that seamlessly blend graphic elements into his paintings. His keen eye for the interplay between nature's shapes and abstract impressions creates a mesmerizing fusion in his compositions.
David Thornberry, an esteemed painter and art educator, brings forth a mastery of observation and realism in his landscape paintings. With a focus on composition, light, and shadow, his artworks capture the intricate dance between positive and negative shapes, delivering landscapes that evoke a sense of depth and drama. As an art educator for several decades, Thornberry's expertise shines through his dedication to both form and content in his captivating pieces.

"My hope/goal is that our art collection be donated to aid in the furtherance of quality art involvement to enrich the lives of the future"
- Susan Amster
To support arts education and contribute to arts enrichment for years to come, Susan and Stephanie Amster have donated their personal collection of over 150 valuable artworks acquired over the past 65 years that have been created by artists from around the globe. In the spring of '22, the sale of this artwork seeded the brand new non-profit, Tandem Arts Partnership, which provided access to the arts for our underserved communities.
