Featured Artist Kate Henderson

My inspiration comes from natural sources ranging from landscapes to microbiology. I think of nature as a continuous flow of energy represented by shifting shapes and patterns. These shapes are the source of what I call naturally-found abstraction.

Featured Artist Megan Woodard Johnson

My process combines meticulous piecing of materials with gestural, intuitive mark making—just as our lives contain moments of structure and periods of chaos. Ultimately, I aim for a balance between these two factors, creating a celebration of the complexity of our experiences.

Artist Showcase, Mid Winter 2019

Invited artists share some of their favorite works in diverse mediums for this Artist Showcase.

Featured Artist Ken Nwadiogbu

My goal for my art is to move completely from trying to make a space beautiful to using it to become a strong activist against the wrongs of my society and the world as a whole.

Featured Artist Susan Hurwitch

Combining artistic mediums, with collage papers, adds a dimensional quality to my work and allows me to approach each piece with a spirit of experimentation and intuition aimed toward my conceptual vision.

Featured Artist Chuck Middlekauff

I am inspired by the road culture of the western United States and American culture in general—advertising art, toys, cartoons and comic books, Coke machines and windmills, cowboys, rock and roll and even my aging painting tools.

Featured Artist Gary Bigelow

Stylistically speaking, I believe that my art is ubiquitously enigmatic and, in some numinous way, mirrors what was, and what is, my life.

Featured Artist Ken Falana

I approach the collage technique as a form of painting with paper. I use rich colors to evoke moods and an improvised arrangement of cut shapes to create a sense of space, depth and movement in my artwork.

Featured Artist Gale Rothstein

Through the creation of assemblage and collage, the parameters of context are wide open; I create fantasy worlds that incorporate references to Dada and Surrealism, historical content, and through juxtaposition of contrasting elements, prompt the viewer the question relationships to scale, location, and relativity.

Featured Artist Joani Share

As I work with a variety of media, I am quite aware that while the media utilized is interesting, the imagery that I create is the message. My art is about the commonality of humanity.

Featured Artist Bobbi Baugh

Everybody has a story. Every thing has a story. Whether we are looking at a person, or a structure, or a part of the natural world, what we see is not all there is. There is always more going on. That’s what interests me.

Artist Showcase, Late Spring 2018

Each piece has a story that unfolds through symbols, color and texture.

Featured Artist David McGlynn

Partly out of dissatisfaction with the limitations of static single image photographs, which represent a single snapshot of time, I sought ways to involve more craft and decision making throughout the entire process, and not simply at the moment of “pressing the shutter button.”

Featured Artist Richard Dennison

I’ll shoot hundreds, if not thousands, of individual photographs for each one. It can take months, and in some cases, even years to have enough options.
