“Abstract Landscape 103 with Copper,” Mary Johnston

Mary Johnston: “Growing up on Lake Superior gave me endless images from which to create my art.

“Listen to the Breeze,” Peter Terrin

“Listen to the Breeze,” Peter Terrin

Art has always been a part of Peter Terrin’s being. There were no defining or pivotal moments which determined the course of his life.

“Pizzazz,” Irina Gretchanaia

Irina Gretchanaia: “When I started painting, my biggest inspiration was Georgia O’Keefe. My flowers speak for themselves and this was my main goal: give the voice to fragile creation in nature that only blooms for one day. We as humans destroy many things in nature every day. Maybe if we look closely how beautiful our […]

Patricia Zenklusen designs her wooden sculptures in an unconventional way. She explains, “I work exclusively with the chainsaw.

At the same time it should stay noticeable, where the limits of […]

“Unzippin’ Color,” Nicole Furman

“Unzippin’ Color,” Nicole Furman

Nicole Furman’s Artist Statement: Attempt to define myself within the context of a society which limits me, measures me, feeds me with limitless information that I am forced to swallow, and categorizes me.
