J. Diane Martonis

Cut paper lends a quiet fragility to my work. Layering and overlapping creates shadows that echo the original, producing a repetition of angle, shape and value onto nearby surfaces. It is this play with lighting and shadow that I explore, using a simple medium of cut paper to manipulate texture and form through cutting and […]

Cindi Yaklich

For me, art is about learning. Learning to be quiet and learning to be loud. Learning to explore and to accept, to sit and observe, feel and touch. Art teaches us to look intently and avoid the preconceived. Art is freedom… with realities. Art is life. My career began with art, yet it still is […]

Erin Teague

One of my favorite things as a child was story time. I loved how stories could deepen my perception of the world and reveal to me that despite immense diversity, we really all share the same grand journey.  We all share the paradox of pain and love, struggle and triumph, and the choices to give […]

Donald Lee

I was born 1968 in Terre Haute, IN. I began drawing at a very young age. Throughout most of my 20’s and 30’s, I didn’t have the understanding of the profound effect that drawing had on me. It was not until about my late 30’s that I tapped into the true meaning drawing delivered to […]

Peter Grundy

The whole process of creating woodcuts excites me. The physical nature of carving and treating paper with respect is a very cathartic exercise, that helps me to slow down and focus. The ink marks made from cut edges, embossed impressions from the block and the unique nature that each print, accentuates the preciousness of the […]

Cindy Sepucha

Cindy worked as a professional mural artist for 10+years, completing over 600 projects for customers including individuals, designers, builders, businesses, non-profit organizations, schools, and the Marine Corps Air Station at Miramar, CA.

Kayla Koeune

Kayla grew up in small-town Wisconsin where she found a love for art at a very young age. And like most of Wisconsin youth, she spent much of hers in taverns; only she was busy drawing the bar flies from a fort she’d construct out of stools. Her passion to create never ceasing, she decided […]

Paula Fitzgerald

After a career in landscape architecture where I specialized in outdoor recreational spaces, I have re-centered my life around art. Play is an essential element for a balanced life. Art is play; is meditative; expands your boundaries and never fails to surprise. Exploring various mediums and styles is an exciting journey and fulfills my need […]

Madeline Wilson

As a child I spent weeks each year staring out at the countryside from the backseat of our car while we moved across country at regular intervals. I had no hometown – my roots lay in a nomadic lifestyle. The constant visual stream of billboards, neon signs, storefronts defined our culture as one of consumption. […]

Mark Ivins

Call them “Secrets of secrets” as Diane Arbus did, or “Life as it happens” as Robert Frank did or perhaps “Between the idea and the reality – falls the shadow” TS Eliot did. (edited). These all describe in their own way what photography is, as I pursue it. The aim is to bring the viewer […]

Vanessa Anderson

My art practice is multi-disciplinary and spans several media, methods, and techniques.  As an artist, I am more interested in narrative, emotional and philosophical content than genre, and seek to match the message with the best media for the expression of an idea.  My technical focus is in the media of drawing, oil painting, and […]

Makenzie Davis

Despite our pop-cultured doomsday fantasies, the true definition of an apocalypse is an “uncovering,” and when translated literally from Greek, is a disclosure of knowledge, a lifting of the veil, or revelation. Volcanoes, and the anthropocentric extraction that surrounds them, are physical manifestations of the apocalypse of our world. They uncover the energy that comes […]

John Cross

I am an image maker who is interested in merging historical figurative/representational painting techniques with contemporary design sensibilities and contemporary materials. The artworks I produce are, on one level, all about surface. The surface of the material being painted upon is just as important as the subject matter. The juxtaposition of highly realistic imagery with […]

Terrell S. Minton

My paintings reflect not only my love of nature but also my interest in finding and simplifying elements in the natural environment. I want my paintings to be about energy and color and my intent is to allow for a certain amount of mystery that the viewer can fill in for him or herself. What […]

Stephanie Hilvitz

Much of my work is an exploration of milagros, amulets and talisman. The symbols and sacred beliefs share a deep connection in meaning and knowledge across the world and across time. I like the label of ‘ethnic merging’ rather than mixed media to describe this work, the coming together of influences that draw from the […]

Gerri Bradford

At 83 years of age, I think of my art as a dynamic life-long experience of exploration and continuous learning. My colorful oil paintings dwell on the journey of meditative and emotional wonders of nature…my conversation with the Universe. I am a member of the Cultural Art Council Fine Art Gallery in Estes Park, Plein […]

Katie Thompson

My most recent work is made up of many layers. It is composed of pattern, free form shape, text, and more concrete subject matter. I wish to give the viewer an array of visual possibilities. It is important to me to use various styles of mark making, collage, paint application and printmaking. I incorporate bits […]

Dwayne Wolff

“Painting and drawing are another way of keeping a diary. But although my work is inspired by my life and times, my object is not to reproduce reality, but to create a reality of equal intensity. In my art, I’m not trying to duplicate external forms, but get to the essence of things. My interests in […]

Jennifer Pettus

The complication of life inspires me to use complicated combinations of materials and methods in my work. I create three dimensional shadowboxes, free form assemblages, and installations that defy categorization with calculated hodgepodge. I spend a lot of time “making the stuff to make the stuff,” re-purposing second-hand and throw-away materials with techniques like knitting, […]

Annette Kennedy

I create pictorial art quilts that incorporate fabric, paint and thread based on photographs I have taken. I also eco-dye scarves with plants that I’ve grown and gathered. I live in Longmont, CO.

Sara Broers Brown

My mixed media collages and quilted wall hangings are my expression of my intuitive voice. My subject matter ranges from landscapes featuring the Rocky Mountains to visual narrative pieces dealing with women’s issues. My mixed media paintings and quilted wall hangings, though varied in media and subject matter, illustrate a cohesive style through the use […]

Suzanne Frazier

The source of inspiration for my oil paintings comes from the natural world. I take my experience of living in Colorado since 1972, from hiking above timberline to sitting next to Boulder Creek, and collect them in my paintings as an organic universal experience of living on this planet. My greatest joy is painting all […]

Irene Delka McCray

I marvel at the mysteries, vast possibilities, desires, and necessities all bound up in human beingness. In my paintings of bodies and cloth, cloth is in concert with bodies, enclosing them in silky knots and binding bundles, untying for free flowing escape, and then gathering and securing once again in essential holds. I see the […]

Angela Beloian

The permanent nature of ink and stitching prevents erasing, insisting that each and every mark be acknowledged and incorporated into the work. As I explore the intersection between drawing and needlework, I am a spider weaving elaborate webs, listening to the individual elements as they dictate each move. — Angela Beloian has exhibited in museums, […]

Dustin Holland

Dustin Holland lives and works in Longmont, Colorado. He and Connor Magyar organize Don’t Yell At Me, a Colorado based poetry reading and concert series. Dustin enjoys collages, comic books, and potatoes. When he grows up he wants to be either Mick Foley or JG Ballard.  

Jill Musser

My art work is an impressionistic expression of still life which I call Fresh Produce and Flowers. These paintings incorporate a simplified, uncluttered foreground and background to emphasize the color and texture of fruits, vegetables and flowers. I also enjoy figure and landscape subjects.   Colorful, energetic brush strokes and the palette knife technique give […]

Julie Clement

Julie Clement is vivacious; and her energy, contagious! This contradicts her hours of isolation applying meditative dots—an art process that feeds her as she moves between her roles as mother, active community member and writer. With capriciousness and boldness of color, she paints her soul’s desire, which playfully connects her to the Earth and the […]

Jill Rumley

My interest in art began with photography in my early teens. I received my first camera, a Kodak Disc Camera, as a gift at the age of 13. Throughout the years, I enjoyed film photography until digital cameras were available in the late 1990’s. In 2015, I started oil painting. My first experience with this […]
