It is in the process of breaking down large sheets of glass, finding the perfect type of glass for each small, hand cut piece, finding that “just right” hue, level of transparency and surface texture that speaks to what we’re trying to say with what we describe as a glass “brush stroke.”

Featured Artist Efrat Baler

I combine linear drawing and 3-dimensional objects on, beneath or behind the canvas melding them into the painting, and use texture, paints, strong contours and color to emphasize the painting and transitions into relief and onto objects.

Artist Showcase, Mid Winter 2019

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

Featured Artist Monica Coyne

My work is an experiment in altering my own perception of what a bar of steel represents.

Featured Artist Kurt Wedgley

Now, I not only shape canvases anyway I desire, but I add other media to them. I have so many ideas! I really like the idea of adding metal to them. I love the contrast between the delicate canvas and the solid steel and how they seem to work together harmoniously.

Featured Artist Ginger Gilmour

I have come to understand that this quality and experience is best captured by creating a metaphysical story of the interaction between the viewer, the artist and the artwork.

Featured Artist Alice Shepherd

Intrigued, I bought my first kiln and began my relationship with glass—this unique material that is neither solid nor liquid, whose molecular structure changes with every firing yet retains the details of each, that can be smooth or textured, flat or wavy, woven, draped, that can record images—had captured my fascination!

Featured Artist Joseph Boddy

I feel strongly about honoring the past by reintroducing reclaimed wood from old buildings, rusty farm equipment and other natural materials in a way that hopefully helps redefine what beauty has always been.

Featured Artist Philip Roberts

As with everything in life, the process can either be painful or therapeutic and the choice is always ours. Contentment is an everyday choice, not a destination. Someday, I will finally learn that the faster I design a new piece of work, the longer it takes.

Featured Artist Peter Michel

The rainbow colors I use symbolize both diversity and inclusion. The positions show the figures supporting each other. The circle, totem, and structure are formal devices that facilitate a unified composition of many elements and symbolize the unity of purpose that characterizes this community.

Featured Artist Stevie Love

I blur the boundary between us the viewer and the relationship we usually have to painting as a pictorial metaphor, instead bringing paint to us as its own reason for being.

Featured Artist Gilly Thomas

I make a complete journey when developing an idea of an animal that I wish to create. I look at many photographs and depictions of that animal and then I start to make a clay representation.

Featured Artist Mark Levin

The grain and beauty of the wood have little influence in the design of my work. I create with wood because of its intrinsic value, virility and quickness of execution.

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.
