Featured Artist Daniel McPheeters

With my science background, I am always aware of the natural forces that shape the universe. I see not only the lyrical beauty of landscapes and skyscapes, but also the beauty of the mathematics of nature that a scientist experiences. I try to convey that beauty by including circles, lines and grids in my works.

As a mime, forming characterizations without the use of words describing who that person is must be conveyed visually. I have found a similar process in this art form by the juxtaposition, placement and choice of various objects in each piece.

To me, making art is about magic. It’s about alchemy, science, philosophy, love and life.

Featured Artist Donna Maloney

I feel elated and moved when I go into a rainforest or botanical gardens. My art work reflects my emotions in the moment I’m creating and if I feel happy, I paint in vibrant colours.

Featured Artist Nancy Christy-Moore

“Inner Painting,” (intuitive painting) forms the basis of my style. My goal in all my paintings is expression of my deepest feelings, not only about the subject matter, but my love of brilliant color and movement that mirrors my joy of living!

Featured Artist Gwen Meharg

I paint hope. Hope that regardless of life’s circumstances, there is a greater picture. All our moments, woven together, create something beautiful.

Featured Artist Raven Skye McDonough

As for my intention for the viewer, I wish for them to be drawn into my artwork long enough to forget their troubles and worries, and for a moment of peace and or thoughtful reflection, in this hectic and crazy world we live in.

Another goal is to deliver a sensory jolt to viewers of my artwork. I use colors intended to uplift the mood and enliven the atmosphere of a space.

Featured Artist Stacy “Crowgirl” Spangler

Over the last year, I’ve been delighted to discover the places where my art comes from; a world of starlight and flowers and feathers, a world where people and animals form mysterious partnerships and almost everyone and everything has wings and can fly.

Featured Artist Janice Stevens

Based on hundreds of photos I have taken over the years, I create textile artworks that depict the beauty and textural interest that time and Nature add to our hard surfaced creations and discarded objects.

Featured Artist Sarah Bush

I also find it interesting that the reflective glow created by the cool, hard nature of the metal also helps express the warmth so important to me; qualities I initially thought would come only from the imagery itself.
