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

Landscape photography printed on Metal and Canvas. "I personally print my negatives with a forty year old DeVere enlarger in my Santa Barbara darkroom. The process is time consuming, expensive, laborious, yet extremely rewarding. These prints are processed to meet or surpass current archival standards. I test every print run to assure maximum permanence. All my photographic prints are selenium toned for its beauty, richness and for the added permanence that selenium toning provides."

Tina Hoffer is a unique woodworker by blending two of natures alluring elements; wood and stone. Tina creates functional, culinary accessories with her Cutting Boards, Gathering Boards, Serving Platters and Dipping Trays that 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 the cracks and voids. She follows the Kintsugi method of Japanese art , where broken and fractured pottery is mended with gold or silver dust, there by restoring the fragments to a functional and more beautiful piece. http://knotswoodandstone.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. This unique approach garnered Marilyn our winner from ColoradoArtWeekend.com

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.
Outstanding Emerging Artist winner goes to Ray Goodluck
Ray Goodluck draws inspiration from animals he grew up around and from his ancestors. From Ray - "Yáh áh tééh. That is greetings in my Native language. I am from the Navajo Nation. My clan is the 'Mud People' and born for the 'One who walks around one'.
Before painting, Ray was an iron worker out of Local 40 in New York City, where he was the first and only Navajo. In April 2019, Ray was working on the new Raiders stadium in Las Vegas, when he was injured on the job site. This injury led to him becoming wheel chair bound, stuck at home frustrated, & having nothing to do but watch TV. In May of the same year his girlfriend saw this frustration and left out a painting set she had got him at Christmas. She hoped it would give him something to focus his time on and ease his frustration while in rehab.
It worked. From this point on, Ray has spent all of his time painting and focusing his attention on making great pieces of art. Ray’s work has already been featured in the “Native American Art” magazine, as well as, a three page feature in “Western Art Collector”.
As a self taught artist, Ray is starting to realized his life's passion.
