Charles Bentz

Was born in Brooklyn, New York and has been drawing ever since he was able to hold a pencil in his hand. He knew he would be an artist at a very early age.


He attended The School of Art & Design and studied at Pratt and The Art Student’s League in New York City. He was an illustrator in the advertising business for many years and is a member of the Society of Illustrators.


He enjoys traveling and taking photographs of the splendor that is the world. He returns to his studio and recaptures those moments on canvas. His paintings are reflective of some of his many loves -- boats, landscapes, still life, the island of Nantucket and the Southwest.


His work has a quality that is reminiscent of a quieter, simpler time of life and aims to transport the viewer there.

Rosetta Bentz

She was born in Calabria, Italy and came to this country as an infant and settled in Long Island City with her family. She has studied painting and collage-making at the Art Student’s League in New York City, paper-making at the Deui Donne Paper Mill, Sumi-e painting with Koho Yamamoto and sculpture at the Fashion Institute of Technology.


She is spontaneous in her approach to the creative process. She paints from memories, moods and impressions. She is endlessly fascinated by the earth’s beauty -- the power, the stillness, the rawness, the abstractness, the seemingly irregularity and the perfection of nature.


Her work is lively and inspirational and her affinity for color and the heavy use of the palette knife are evident in a body of work that shouts with life, urgency, anticipation and new beginnings.
