Featured Artist Connie Dillon

The look I gravitated to was that of print work—blocks of color with no shading and blending. I wanted to paint works that were detailed and yet every color would be applied as if it were an elaborate paint-by-number.

Featured Artist Steve Griggs

It is the freedom in my style that allows the viewer to eschew the literal and, instead, connect with the emotion that accompanies whatever story the painting is telling them.

Featured Artist Ken Rasmussen

Becoming an older artist presents you with a choice. Stay with what you know or go off on a grand adventure. This art is my adventure.

Featured Artist Randall David Tipton

I love these things—building an image through an experimental process of pouring, scraping, blotting and brushing on color until something with a kind of “truth” comes about. My intentions are less visual than emotional.

Featured Artist Dale Klein

I work on the edge of hyperrealism and abstraction. One of my goals as an artist is to make my work as interesting as possible, inviting the viewer to spend time with the work.

Featured Artist Pierpaolo Catini

In my creative journey, I felt the need to create a thick surface in my artworks, something material that people can feel and touch.

Featured Artist Stacy White

I’ve learned over time that visiting places as a photographer has taught me to realize that there is always beauty around us if you take the time to look close enough.

Featured Artist Gill Bustamante

Everyone can draw and everyone can paint and if more people had a creative outlet this world would be considerably saner. Making something you are proud of allows you to direct the proceeding as YOU chose–not as someone else does.

Featured Artist Leanne Fink

Artists are unique in that we are willing to bare our souls to the world through visual expression. As for me, I focus on creating work that calms, heals or uplifts. One of my primary goals is to show my art to as many people as possible to make this connection.

Artist Showcase Spring, 2018

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 Ken Roberts

I am privileged and passionate about landscape painting, endeavouring to transform the two-dimensional canvas into a portal, drawing the observer into an ethereal world of emotional connections.

Featured Artist Steph Mader

I hope the glass landscapes evoke those quiet places where there are only natural sounds–the wind, bird song, little rustlings in the underbrush. I think it helps us remember that we are part of the larger world, just as perfect and natural as any other creature.

Featured Artist Samantha Kaplan

I hope that my work shows that we live in such a magnificent, fragile world that is worth treasuring and protecting.
