Candy Way

saltboxgallery 0

Fine art has been a part of Candy’s life from an early age when she was often a model for her artist mother, Ernee  Way. Later, she became her mother’s most promising student and emerged as a highly regarded  professional artist in her own right.

Sensitive to the interaction of changing light and shadow, her paintings are characterized by energetic brushwork infused with vibrant color. Having a keen eye for the impressionist style, and being extraordinarily adept with a high-key palette, her interpretation results in images that are stunningly iridescent and a delight to the senses. Candy says, “I feel a spiritual connection with nature that inspires me to capture the raw beauty that is inherent in the world around us.” Most notably, and perhaps the most fitting tribute to her work, Candy’s paintings are sought not only by collectors but also fellow artists.

Candy studied Fine Arts at the University of Massachusetts, Boston and received private instruction from Ernee Way and Copley Master Robert Scott Jackson. She is a former member and Secretary of the Guild of Beverly Artists, an artist member of the North Shore Arts Association, the Newburyport Arts Association, the Society of Master Impressionists, the American Impresssionist Society and the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society.


Michael Milczarek

Michael grew up and lives on Massachusetts’s North Shore where he draws his inspiration from painting the everyday scene.

“We have a great range on subject matter to draw from in New England, ranging from rocky coastlines, smooth beaches, salt marshes, fields, meadows and mountains.  We drive by them every day going to work, school, errands and endless soccer, band, and football practices.

My inspiration is to remove the asphalt, streetlights and buildings in order to see the landscape as it truly is.  The majority of my landscapes are literally a view from the side of the road.”

Michael works primarily with a full color palette often tilted towards a tonal approach.  His goal for a landscape painting is to convey a sense of quiet calm we all need from time to time.

He is an artist-partner in the Saltbox Gallery and is a member of several area art associations.
