Michael W. Vacchiano is a Denver-based artist with a primary focus in figurative oil painting. His work explores traditional tropes with a contemporary edge. Michael’s current work explores the turmoil and inequality within our country today.

By using a contemporary western aesthetic he confronts outdated notions of the American experience and addresses the social and political upheaval within America today. Michael was co-owner and curator of Point Gallery in Denver’s Santa Fe Art District and is currently co-owner of Satellite Exhibition Services, an art fabrication and installation design company.
Vacchiano's work has been exhibited throughout Colorado, and his paintings can be found in a number of private collections throughout the United States and abroad.

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/
The craftsman behind Kell Designs is a geologist turned silversmith and lapidary artist. All pieces start with rough stone found in the field or purchased directly from miners in the American West. This rough is then cut, shaped, and polished into cabochons for use in final pieces or cut for the inlay process. All the metal work starts with sheet and wire or is casted from recycled silver and casting grain from silver produced in America. The lost wax method is used with wax models and other organic materials most notably plant parts such as alder cones and willow twigs. Tufa carving and sand casting are also used for a rustic look and truly unique pieces. This artist truly does it all from scratch with materials sourced as close to home as possible.
