Artist 1: Mary Shaffer (Glass Sculptor) - A Natural Force
Creative Excellence Award -US/Intl. FVF
"Recommended. Succinctly sketches the glass sculptor and practitioner of found art. Juxtaposing steel and stone or bronze with glass, Shaffer tries to make art look effortless." -Booklist
Mary Shaffer creates art, representative of life, harnessing the powers of heat, fire, and gravity to transform substances, such as steel with stone or bronze with glass, into objects that are full of wonder.
Artist 2: Forrest Moses - Watercolor Artist by Nature
Forrest Moses has a knack for recording unique moments in nature onto canvas. He says, "Translating landscape into painting, one has to try to interpret what exactly gives the landscape its energy."
Artist 3: Louisa McElwain - In the Spirit of Georgia O'Keeffe
Louisa McElwain feels at home in nature, and loves to share her love of nature through her oil paintings. Painting in the "spirit of Georgia O'Keeffe," she says, "I try not to control it; I love the accidents."
Artist 4: Melissa Zink - Ceramic Sculptor and Painter
From her earliest ceramic sculptures to her more recent dimensional paintings, Melissa Zink's art is unflinchingly personal, a product of her life and thought that it communicates as one bell with another.
Artist 5: Stephen Monroe - Painter, Sculptor, Toy Maker
Stephen Monroe is an artist who blends many talents, be they painting, sculpting, or making toys. He says, "What makes art fascinating is, it's a look into another's mind or psyche." 04-10/10DE JSCA 60 min.
