Artists in this exhibition use color as a predominate component of their artwork. Squeak Carnwath gives voice and form to those deeply affecting experiences that many of us find difficult to articulate. Linda Christensen’s figurative paintings deal with life’s everyday occurrences. Her work features contrast of extremes in color and ambiguity of space. David DeVillier's imaginative works and titles are satiated with emotionally driven messages while at times being sharply humorous and full of wit. The liveliness of Bean Finneran's hand rolled ceramic sculptures are equaled by Rana Rochat's series of encaustic paintings. Rochat's new paintings use scrawling lines, rhythms of dots and texture, and sophisticated color to create an uplifting atmosphere. Gary Komarin’s abstract painting style visually engages the viewer with richness of color as a primary message. Cole Morgan creates whimsy and illusions of dimension with color and shape. Marcia Myers utilized natural pigments to capture the essence of her Italian experiences. Gary Nisbet creates colorful and playful painted collages featuring forms drawn from the domestic realm of home. The interactions of the natural processes of earth and fire with the hand define the sculptural beauty of Jim Romberg’s Raku fired ceramics. Julie Speidel’s newest work features bold colors matched with her iconic forms influenced by ancient artifacts.For over five decades, Inez Storer has pursued her own uniquely personal style of figuration, despite periods in which abstraction remained the prevalent avant-garde style. Internationally recognized for his unconventional painted, blown, and fabricated glass sculpture, Statom's playful but sophisticated imagery and integration of non-glass materials continues to explore unique, architectural compositions. Using simple geometric shapes and rectilinear alignments, Melinda Tidwell focuses on the coherence and juxtaposition of color, pattern, placement and size.
