Bonny Novesky

Acrylic Prints

Bonny Novesky creates unusual acrylic prints on heavy Arches papers without using a press. Each piece is unique and although she can control the color used, the finished product is often a surprise. The works on paper are frequently incorporated on canvas to create intricately complex layers of rich, colorful abstracts.

James Lee

Mixed Media Collage

Abstract and representational acrylic, gouache, watercolor, collage, graphite, chalk, pencil and other dry media, ink, engraving, etching; photography to capture raw material for other work. Graphic tales and multipart series.
 

Jeff Brown

Oil Paintings

I draw my ideas from sketches, a library of images and my imagination. My sensibility is to use primary colors and basic, strong shapes. But enlivened by the introduction of jazz-inspired visual riffs, using distortion and juxtaposition of symbols and references to tell a story. I grace my canvases with whimsical elements that will reward the viewer who will put themself into the scene. The endeavor is to weave a fun new form of reality, yet with a tip of the hat to the legacy of other artists, past and contemporary. 

Joan Currie

Photography

Joan Currie is an award-winning photographer and mixed media artist. She finds beauty in the ordinary activities of daily living and loves to further transform her images to introduce a whole new aesthetic.
