Darlys Ewoldt

She was introduced to using metals as a medium at Drake University, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. She earned a Master of Fine Arts degree from Indiana University. During the ensuing years, […]

Mary Pritchard

My work is based on two keys elements, the nature of the pastel medium and the subject matter that has the greatest appeal to me–the rural landscape. I respond emotionally and visually to a natural environment that seems hospitable to humans and to architecture that seems in harmony with the natural environment. These landscapes can […]

Elizabeth MacDonald

Through clay, I express my connection to the natural world. Each work speaks to the process of change, whether through the appearance of age or the spontaneity of gesture. Lured by the color and texture, ancient in feeling, I often express these qualities through the use of fragmentation. Small surface elements draw the viewer into […]

Beverly Ress

My work is an ongoing visual investigation of mortality. I draw carefully observed representations of things that have wandered off this mortal coil – birds, plants, bugs, and animals. Each is equal to the others in its mortality. I reinforce that equivalency by drawing them all in the same way: colored pencil on 22″x30″ paper. […]

Linda Richards

Throughout my entire life, I have been genuinely touched by nature on a daily basis. It has been my refuge and a source of real solace to me, so it seemed like the most natural thing in the world for it to be the source that I continually come back to in my art.

Rebecca Saylor Sack

I mine anxieties of the corporeal body through the liquidity of paint. I am deeply fascinated by the ever-changing processes of growth and decay visible in our environment—of our own body and the landscape surrounding us. Much of my imagery is gleaned from observation, whether painted directly from life in the studio or through the […]

John Ruppert

Over the past 35years, John Ruppert has been working in cast metals; manufactured materials such as chain-link fabric; mixed media; and more recently, video, digital 3D printing and digital composite photography – all in response to where natural order and human decision-making meet, and the paradoxes that lie between. His work stems from a long […]

Carol Rowan

I found shelter in Jackson Pollack’s paintings as a teenager. Then began my regular visitations to the Vermeer’s at the Met. Now, 30 years later, I find deep peace in front of a Bierstadt and am awed by the work of Fredrick Church and Thomas Cole. Home was not a place for me, but a […]

Susan Kerns

Botanical subjects are an inspiration for me whether in the form of landscape or individual plants. I see them as architectural structures revealed by light. I seek the universal truth in visual forms through the play of light on, in and around the subject. I like to be able to read a painting from across […]

Rebecca Kamen

As an artist (and novice anthropologist), the activity of travel, exploring the cultural and geographical array offered by new and unique places, thoroughly influences both my art and my life. My current body of work (Meta Series), recalls up my past memories of travel to countries with ancient cultures, including China, Cambodia, Burma and Egypt.. […]

Jeremy Newman | Allison Ciancibelli

Our work is based on observations of our home in North Central Washington, a place of rugged mountains, sagebrush foothills, and narrow river valleys. While the snow-capped peaks inspire awe, it is the sparse dry hills and agricultural fields that continually draw our attention. It is in these lowlands that we find our voice, exploring […]

Janet Christensen

The foundation for the imagery comes during walks on the farm in Kent County and early morning rows on the river, often before the sun breaches the horizon. This work is deeply personal, reflecting my relationship to sense of place. The pieces are the result of snapshots etched into memory and interpretation of feelings aroused […]

Cynthia Burke

The diversity of the natural world yields a never-ending supply of subjects for my paintings, however I never place my subjects in their natural environment. It seems far more interesting to give them a little of ours. The result is sometimes humorous and, I hope, often thought provoking. I often use the style of a […]

Blake M. Conroy

Blake Conroy creates drawings about nature and human perception. He laser-cuts paper and metal, making marks whose appearance changes subtly as the light of day progresses from morning to evening, and then into the artificial light of nighttime.

Emily Kalwaitis

I am interested in that which is half-hidden and mysterious. I’m drawn to subtle emotional states, barely perceivable, fleeting and unsubstantial. I’m drawn to things that fade. My most recent work centers around female figures, both women and young girls. The figures are most frequently amidst some element of nature; clouds, plants, birds, deer, water, […]

Susan Hostetler

After earning her fine arts degree in painting, Susan Hostetler added hand papermaking as a skill with awards from the Russell Siebert and Tiffany Foundations to study with Twinrocker Handmade Paper in Indiana, where she made custom papers for artists such as Rauschenberg, Warhol and Jasper John
