Painting layer upon layer, often destroying or obscuring one layer to create the next, I move forward through the process until the painting is "fully baked". Terrified by what I am doing, I recognize that this method of creating art mirrors life and has the potential to produce a final image that is richer and more nuanced than any painting that I might have planned with precision.OPEN365.
Throughout my life I have experienced the deep joy of the reverential gaze. Viewing the world with intense engagement has always brought me great delight. But, there is no finer experience of the world than channeling that gaze into an artistic creation.
Her painting process is physical, using hardware-store brushes. Broken sticks. Rags. And hands. To move paint. To add layers. To pull back layers. To drip. To scrape and wipe. And to pull the paint across the surface. Beverly grew up in rural American near Union, Nebraska. Often happily lost for hours in the open prairie landscape that inspires her work today. OPEN365.
Making jewelry has always intrigued me. I like learning about the various gemstones and the types of properties that have been associated with them. I like the idea that they have served as talismans in many different cultures for centuries. I have been working with wire wrapping techniques for years and have developed my skills in wire weaving, wrapping and bail making. I mostly work in copper.
Represented by the Santa Fe-based online gallery, Blackship-Tree, John D. Wagner is a fine-art photographer, as well as a widely published author of 23 books. John shoots black-and-white photos on old-fashion “2.25” film (never digital), using an antique Hasselblad 500 C/M camera. He does all his own fine printing .
I’m a Maker. Let loose first by paper and crayons, I’ve always drawn, built things, and written stories to describe the world I feel more than the world I see. Weaving cloth for wearable art was my initial foray into the luscious world of textiles, but eventually my attention fled the constraints of human scale and I landed kerplunk! in the wondrous world of mixed-media figures.

I am a synesthete, which means the senses become mixed and intertwined in my mind. Sounds appear in colors; numbers sing songs and frequencies dance in my head. My art is a blending of sounds, science, and nature and it is driven by curiosity and the possibilities of what materials can do. OPEN365.
I’m a jewelry designer, a metalsmith and a graduate gemologist. In creating handmade jewelry you are essentially making a small sculpture that becomes wearable art. My inspiration comes primarily from classic ancient jewelry styles, many of which are timeless. OPEN365.
When the covid isolation time began and I found myself with unlimited and consoling time in my studio, I felt a need for a departure from my usual painting and print making. I began a series of papercuts, done with an exacto knife which allows me to cut intricate forms. . I find that clean, well defined worlds are comforting at such a time of uncertainty. OPEN365.
