From painters to sculptors, join us as we welcome five new artists into the AOL Artists program. Erika Somogyi, Jessica Snow, Lauren Cotton, Matt W. Moore, and Rebeca Raney have created ten new canvases which launched today on AOL.com.
Erika Somogyi, a Brooklyn-based artist, creates complex sculptures and paintings that are both beautiful and fun. Rebeca Raney, another Brooklyn-based artist, creates work of a similar nature, using paint and sculpture to create work that is exciting and playful. The two actually met prior to joining the AOL Artists community while exhibiting at Monya Rowe Gallery. Jessica Snow, a San Francisco-based artist, is known for her colorful geometric paintings and installations. Her most recent group exhibition included the work of renowned artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and Sol LeWitt. Lauren Cotton, a Connecticut-based artist, creates large-scale installations out of neon tape. Her work has been exhibited at multiple galleries along the East Coast. Matt W Moore, based in Portland, Maine, creates work that spans a multitude of disciplines. His work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally. We are thrilled to have such an eclectic group of creatives join the AOL Artists community.

We are closing this season's ongoing Summer Series of canvases with two breathtaking paintings by alumni AOL Artist Chrissy Angliker. "Shore Side" and "Sunflower" evoke the heat of August, the beauty of the season, and are dripping with color.
Chrissy Angliker, a Brooklyn-based artist, was born in Zurich, Switzerland, and moved to the states when she was just 16 years old to study fine art at the Walnut Hill School in Natick, Massachusetts. Chrissy later went on to study Industrial Design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Her paintings have been exhibited internationally and she is currently represented by William Bennett gallery in New York and Knoerle & Baettig in Switzerland. Chrissy has been an active member of the AOL Artists community since 2010. She created beloved canvas "Dripping Color" and painted a permanent mural in AOL's San Francisco office that served as inspiration for "Shore Side." We couldn't be happier to have such an incredible artist as a part of our program.
