Hugh Bailey – Painting, Clay, Printmaking


Gray Bearden – Clay


Lynda Best – Painting

  For me, everything in nature is moving energy and that is part of my spirituality. The water and flowers are constantly changing because of our mountain seasons.

Kathy Holland – Painting

The landscape has always had a powerful pull on me and has shaped my sensibilities from a very early age all the way through my painting career.

Karen Kyte – Clay

I’ve been an artist ever since I held crayons. I decorated everything and made endless mud-pies. I was the busiest, messiest kid on the block.

Marie Merritt – Painting

  A painting is not about the painter, but the subject. As the artist behind the work of art, I hope the viewer is first drawn to the emotion and character depicted in the painting. After focusing on this, details — the result of time-honored oil painting techniques — are discovered. Through the careful combination […]

They may never understand my intentions, but that is OK – the point is to enjoy the experience! Due to varied expressions […]
