Artist Showcase, Late Spring 2018

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

Featured Artist Amy Guion Clay

In life and art, I long for the horizon. There is an invisible tether that pulls me toward the unknown, and this is reflected in the artwork that I do. Even in my purely abstract paintings, it’s always about a mythical journey of discovery. I always want to know what is beyond.

Featured Artist Jennifer Wang

What inspired me to draw was never a person; it was the feeling of a lost connection between people.

Featured Artist Larry Berko

I am moved by the ocean and the people and objects on and in it. It is mostly exploration of the paint, though, that motivates me. The viewer should see the paint as much as the image.

Featured Artist Jerry Lofaro

In many ways, I feel as if my artistic journey is just beginning as I further refine my hyper-realistic, digital art style while also exploring experimental fine art and photography at the same time.

Featured Artist Mystele

I work intuitively and abstract my subjects from the chaotic mixed media grounds I create. I’m inspired by my childhood, my ethnicity, my affinity for old things and the landscape of Northwest Texas where I grew up.

Featured Artist Paul Hopman

My inspiration comes from witnessing animals in moments in time. The light reflecting in the fixed gaze of a horse, the pose of a lioness as she lays besides her cubs, the heated breath of a bison on a brisk morning. These moments are filled with energy and emotion, making them beautiful and unique.

Featured Artist Jan Fagan

For me, that simple advice continues to inspire gratitude, a sense of wonder and the belief that magic may just be possible if you believe it. It is that very feeling of child-like wonderment and magical possibilities I love to express in my artwork.

Featured Artist Paulapart Pino

Acoustics, the study of how sound and vibration pass through a space, became the new focus of my artistic pursuits so I started making acoustic sculptures.

Featured Artist Jeannette Sirois

At the same time, for me, art must also be about issues that have deeper meaning, ones directly connected with how we interact and treat each other. Issues of race and equality have been a prominent part of my work, and I often use words on figures to move the message along.

From oils and encaustic was paintings to photography and digital artwork, these images have been inspired by the artists’ passion, curiosity and imagination.

Featured Artist Sima Schloss

I get my inspiration from my own life experiences, but from my students as well. Getting to know them and listening to their stories of their history of immigration situations gives me so many ideas.

Featured Artist Hank Keneally

Creating art is my “joy juice.” I create every day. This gives me learning delights—about myself, the world and “the face behind the face” in viewing life with more depth.

Artist Showcase Winter 2018

From oils and pastel to photography and digital artwork, these images have been inspired by the artist’s passion, curiosity and imagination.
