Artist Showcase, Autumn 2018

From mixed media to oil, photography, watercolor and even finger painting, the following artists share their passion for art by showcasing one of their favorite pieces of art.

Featured Artist Wendy Liang

I am especially fascinated by how watercolor can depict reflections so effectively and am so fascinated by it that I may enjoy painting the rippled reflections even more than the actual objects themselves.

Featured Artist Vikki Jackson

My goal is to interpreting the amazing flora and fauna of this country (Australia) with my individual style and share it with the rest of the world.

Featured Artist Dirk Karsten

I have never been very interested in the technical side of photography. Cameras and lights are only the tools used to make an image. Analog or digital—who cares—it all depends on the final result that I am looking for.

Featured Artist Mary Garrish

As a native Floridian, I’m drawn to the elusive nature of our skies with a curiosity that is unending. I feel as though nature provides us with a thousand different paintings every day in the ever-changing sky.

Featured Artist Mason Mansung Kang

I love that I can create another view of a landscape that not only conveys my feelings and emotions, but perhaps allows the viewer to experience the scene in another way by seeing the different colors I use—colors that don’t appear to the naked eye.

Featured Artist Olivia Alexander

Single pigmented paints, many of which are transparent in nature, are among my favourites. Layer upon layer is built on the canvas, combined with inks and watercolours. The transparency allows each layer to peek through to the one above.

Featured Artist Mark Witzling

Painting abstractly exposes the artist and embracing this vulnerability requires a leap of faith in self. I think my art journey has made me a stronger human being. One of my personal mottoes has become “strength in humility.”

Featured Artist Ashley Dull

I believe we all have inside of us a peace, a divine light, a calming point of equilibrium, even in this fast-paced world.

Featured Artist William Nourse

As an artist, I am drawn to strong graphic elements in a scene, things like jagged mountains against the sky or fracture patterns in ice, and desert landscapes help to strip compositions down to those essentials–line, value and texture and their relationships with each other.

Featured Artist Teresa Smith

Beginning with thin layers of oily warm transparent hues then mutating into thick painterly brush marks. The paintings take weeks to finish with each layer stamping the recollection of that day’s walk. I work on five to ten paintings on any given day and allow the pieces to unfold in a contemplate manner.

Featured Artist Elizabeth Fontaine-Barr

My muses are the Fauvists so my color palette is bold. It always has been. When I begin a new canvas, I’m not always sure what I’m going to paint.

Featured Artist Bergés Alvarez

Utilizing plastic blue base bags, films, reflective filters, lights and a mixture of weathered paper products, I slowly construct scenes that portray far, distant landscapes with vulnerable, new horizons.
