Margaret Gerding

“New England marshes remind me of a wonderful childhood, full of joy and freedom. For me they represent spaces that are safe, peaceful, and endless. In the marshes of New England I have always experienced a sense of 'oneness' with nature. It is my place of belonging."

“The first light on dune grass leaves a maze of blades and cast shadows capturing the gentle
breeze that twists everything to and fro, as if trying to find its direction for the day. "Sunrise on the Dunes" is a seemingly simple composition that holds so much complexity."

"Sunrise walks always astound me...the spectacular and the subtle. This quiet morning, following the path over the dune was such a gift...its warm, low light illuminating the grass and making me very aware of the complex colors in the sky."

"The Light of Ireland…You’ve heard the stories of how green the Emerald Isle is, but like many things in life you must witness it with your own eyes. I always thought of Ireland as an overcast, grey-skied land of green. What I didn’t realize was the light that illuminates these fields reveals a multitude of greens, one more vibrant than the next. This world is breathtaking, moody, and mysterious all at the same time." - Margaret Gerding, 2023
