Sara Leibman is a painter and mixed-media artist based in the Washington DC area. In addition to showing her work at Studio B in Bethesda, MD, where she is a resident artist, Sara has participated in numerous solo and group shows across the nation. Most recently, Sara’s luminous cold wax and oil paintings have been selected for shows at the Montpelier Arts Center and the Mattawoman Creek Art Center, both in Maryland, and for the inaugural Cold Wax International exhibit on the Cold Wax Academy website. Sara’s art is part of diverse private and public collections, including Wells Fargo Investments and T-Mobile USA in the DC area and the American Airlines headquarters in Dallas, TX.

Gloria Solomon has lived in the Washington, DC area for more than 40 years and has always been passionate about painting. She developed her skills through classes at the Washington Studio School, the Yellow Barn, and online. She painted regularly during her career as a lawyer, and three years ago turned her main focus to painting. Solomon’s acrylic landscapes and still lifes combine representational elements with experiments in color or composition and areas that are abstracted or invented. She looks for subjects with strong arrangements of color, shape, and light, which she then seeks to translate and heighten in her paintings. Her work is in a number of private collections. It has been included in shows at the Washington Studio School and in the juried Members' Show at the Yellow Barn Studio in 2021, 2022, and 2023 (Honorable Mention 2022). In January 2023, Solomon joined Studio B, a shared studio and exhibit space in downtown Bethesda, MD.
