Hungarian by birth, Susan Dobay currently resides in California. After studying graphic arts both in Hungary and the U.S, she served as an illustrator for advertising agencies, magazines, and newspapers. Wanting to explore more creative options, Susan Dobay moved from commercial to fine art, and in 1968 she was invited to join and exhibit with the Alliance of Hungarian Artists both in the United States and abroad. In Los Angeles Dobay helped found the Arany Janos Hungarian Literary and Cultural Circle. Since her work has been exhibited world wide in museums, galleries and public buildings.
Artist’s Statement: ‘Although I derive inspiration from various sources – e.g., music, nature, the human condition – I try to find the balance between matter and soul. My goal is to involve viewers in a creative game where both the mind and the heart are stimulated.’
 
Ferenc Besze was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary.  His love for art surfaced early on in his childhood when he filled all his textbooks with drawings to the frustration of his teachers and parents.  Presently he lives in San Francisco Bay Area.  Ferenc exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally.   His paintings are in private collections in the United States and Europe.  Ferenc’s paintings have also won numerous awards and his work was featured in the millennium issue of the International Artists Magazine Master Painters of the World section. He is a signature member of the Society of Western Artists and an active supporter of different fundraisers, which benefit humanitarian causes.
 
Edith Dittert was born in Kecskemet, Hungary and immigrated to the U.S. in 1956; now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1972. She began her coursework at Diablo Valley College in 1985, and has participated in several workshops with leading Bay Area artists ever since. She likes to paint flowers and landscapes in abstract and realistic style, as well as make colorful, whimsical collages from hand-made papers collected during her travels to the Orient. Her works are rich in warm and glowing colors filtering into each other in complete harmony. She has exhibited in galleries and art shows sponsored by several Monterey Bay and Bay Area Art Associations. She is currently a member of the Santa Cruz Art League and the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center. Her past memberships have been with the Bay Area Contemporary Artists, and the San Francisco Women Artists Associations.
 
Enchanted by the splendor of nature, and life itself, Eva Maria Matte, seeks to maintain herself as a dreamer and has the view of a ‘hopeless romantic’. Eva was born in Hungary, and studied the essentials of artistic style and techniques at Torrance, then at Long Beach College. Throughout her life, she has experimented with various techniques including calligraphy, fine art, and computer art design. In her paintings, she now employs her many skills to express her thoughts and visions, projecting herself beyond the everyday beauty.
 
Hegedűs Tünde comes from Szarvas, Hungary. Her childhood was affected by plants, animals, air and water – altogether the nature influenced the sensitive little girl. Folk-dance, music, acting, decorating art, designing, and making clothes formed her individuality. Her exhibitions demonstrate how well two spirits can live in one fragile body of a woman: the rationally thinking person, and the player, sensitive person who has inner values urging her to express her sensations in two and three dimensions. She paints, draws graphics, and carves statues. The main topic of her art is the human being, nature and the slender feminine figures.
