When starting down his path, BenJamin was given the words from another artist, "make what you like" - from those words Ben Jamin has found that the warm energy we all feel in great art comes from the artists who truly love what they create. Ben creates his work using a plasma torch to create relief in thick steel plate. He then refines and polishes each piece before adding some color by way of chemical reaction, or patina. Ben has been refining his techniques for almost 15 years, and the quality of his patinas and finishes reveal just that. Be sure to take a look at his web site www.BJaminCustoms.com

Charles Sherman's work is inspired by a lifelong study of ancient civilizations, world cultures and religions. His philosophy of life and art has always been the same: to promote the positive. The forms he creates are minimalist, conceptual and inspired by sacred geometry. In 2002, Sherman began investigating sculptural forms that express the concept of infinity, especially the three-dimensional Möbius form or continuum, to create ceramic Infinity Ring sculptures. He hand builds in clay, using the most primitive sculpture tools and coil or slab construction techniques. Sometimes he applies glass mosaic to the ceramic, or transform the work into bronze or stainless steel. Sherman's most recent body of work, the Miracle Towers, is based on variations of tetrahedron and pyramid forms, in welded and hand-brushed stainless steel, or cold-pressed steel with glass mosaic or various patinas. Sherman's sculptures are designed to emit positive energy to the environment. His intention is to elevate the spirit of the viewer. www.CharlesShermanArt.com
Collective Geekery is a husband/wife collaborative team specializing in unique three-dimensional mixed media artworks, many made with reclaimed or upcycled materials. A veterinarian who's wanted to be an artist since age five, Meghann is in charge of spilling the paint, giving Kevin metalworking requests that defy the laws of physics, and labeling the art supplies. Kevin (occupational safety specialist by day) is the "welpenter", bringing a sense of movement and whimsy to each piece with his wood and metalcraft. He also makes fantastic quesadillas. Together, Meghann and Kevin meld the colorful and messy with the strong and structural, in art as in life. Their art is borne out of asking the question “what if we...?”, endeavoring to bring an innovative approach to the composition of each piece. The unconventional structural elements complement the colorful pieces, helping them to “escape the frame” and become something unique and fascinating. https://collectivegeekery.com/
Peter has been an artist for as long as he can remember and still proudly displays the ceramic dinosaur he made when he was just four years old. However, since 1986 he has solely worked in watercolors. Peter has shown his artwork in juried shows and galleries throughout the country since winning numerous awards. Peter's free-flowing style makes his watercolors unique. Peter is a mood painter creating an impression of his sublet matter through the use of bold and energetic colors. Peter's greatest satisfaction comes from the donation to worthy causes such as Habitat for the Humanity, the American Heart Association, the American Breast Cancer Society, Children’s Hospice House among others and was commissioned by Johns Hopkins in Baltimore where he produced some 50 originals for their surgery wing, Recently, Wake Forest’s University’s new neonatal center approached Peter to paint the signature piece for the entrance to their new center and his 48 x 60 inch “Baby Bear” adorns the entrance. His work is bright and bold watercolors that adhere to wood panels treated with a preservative. https://peter-freischlag.squarespace.com/
Moss was exposed to the art world at a very young age. His sister, Lyn Kent Jones, was the first in the family to follow a career in art. Definite influences by the wonderful Russell family of artists in Pecos, a small town in romantic West Texas, created a spark in Moss which followed him through worldly careers to the point where the artistic pull could no longer be denied. In fact, Moss' budding artist son, also Moss, provided a stimulus for the elder artist to "get serious" about art.
Moss is amazed on a daily basis with the processes of applying paint to a blank canvas and at some point seeing something beautiful, inspiring, or exciting pop out. Catching the light of the world is his goal. Beauty will follow.

All of the pieces are made from naturally shed deer and elk antler found in the high mountains of Southern Colorado and reindeer antler that comes from a local rancher with a small herd on her land. With an eye to capture the best quality of the antler’s shape, color and or texture, each piece is cut with a band saw, shaped with a belt sander & then hand sanded. Some pieces are burned to give a warm brown tone. Every piece is polished with white rouge on a jeweler's wheel for a finish that allows the subtle beauty of the colors and textures to be revealed with a sheen that does not chip or yellow. Accents are sterling silver and goldfill, semiprecious stones and other interesting finds

By blending two of natures alluring elements, wood and stone, Tina creates functional, culinary accessories. Her Cutting Boards, Gathering Boards, Serving Platters and Dipping Trays will elevate your daily or special occasions.
Tina meticulously searches through arborists’ wood lots looking for the perfectly flawed, cracked and knot filled hardwoods that other woodworkers pass by because of these deficits. She chooses smaller pieces of wood that will be enhanced with Stone like turquoise, lapis, malachite or chrysocolla, and inlays these into these cracks and voids. Following a similar method to the Japanese art of Kintsugi, where broken and fractured pottery is mended with gold or silver dust, thereby restoring the fragments to a functional and more beautiful piece. http://knot-wong.squarespace.com/
Marilyn's art is reverse painting on acrylics. Yep, she paints in reverse from the most forward elements of the piece to the furthest back. You have to see it in person to truly appreciate its magic.

Painting in a modern impressionist style, Marilyn's art is infused with brilliant light and color. Her use of textured, bold brush strokes magnifies the vivid impressionist style.
