Galaxy on a rainy day Photography, Digital Photography on Photo Paper W:8 H:11 in 2021 Hiromi Kawano

I shoot beautiful scenery and flowers in Japan and layer them to make mysterious and beautiful artworks. Flowers and landscapes that change with the season give me inspiration. The theme of this work is hydrangea, and the motif of a rainy day is superimposed to express a world like a galaxy. I try to express the beauty of nature more beautifully. I hope that the beautiful nature will be preserved in the future.

Hidden Behind the Mask! Painting, Mixed Media on Panel W:12 H:12 in 2021 Nimisha Doongarwal

Does the mask only protects us from Virus or also is isolating us from other people’s feelings. We can’t really see emotional and don’t really know how the person under that mask is doing. We haven’t seen people laugh for 14 months. Is it just because mask hides the face or is it more than that ? Our families and loved ones are struggling with COVID and we are so far and helpless. This is causing stress, anxiety and depression. Its hard to be away from families and hard to deal with all of this alone, but try seeking support and help. You are not alone!

Mystic Dawn Painting, Acrylic on Canvas W:40 H:60 D:2 cm 2020 Ralph Lacher

The Mystique Series is a journey of the mind, a mystical space as well as a place in the physical world. The canvass is simply the launching pad for the viewers’ discoveries within the landscape. Nuances created by the layers of color, values and texture are meant to mirror the rich nuances reminiscent of the variations in nature itself.

Lady Faith; An Oracle Mixed Media, Photographic Collage W:36 H:17 in 2021 Garrett Martin

Photo Collage on Hahnemuhle. It’s easy to get caught on the small things – like ourselves. We often forget who we are or where we came from and how easy and simple it can be swept away. Regardless of ones’ faith it is hard to deny the mysterious workings of a Divinity(?) and the times before ours.

Chasing Bernini Across Rome Painting, Acrylic on Paper W:42.50 H:30.50 in 2016 Gerard Huber

Since the invention of photography tourists have been recording the sights of Rome to share with family and friends. When confronting an actual artwork in-situ, they often experience a certain disorienting bewilderment because of the disparity between the remembered artwork from texts or guidebooks and what they are observing in real life. The work may appear larger -- or smaller, more or less brilliantly colored, or have a surprising variety of textures that seem to distort its assumed familiarity. It is as if the flat and static secondary reality of the photographic image has a greater credibility than the actual three-dimensional sculpture they are experiencing directly.

Where Are They Now? Gig 1 Mixed Media, Oil Color, Transfer Printmaking on Panel W:45 H:60 in 2020 - 2021 David Chatfield

Toner Transfers and Oil Paint on 25, 9"x12" Panels

The Where Are They Now Series asks what Depression Era individuals captured in iconic imagery would be doing in today's gig economy. If the Migrant Mother were alive I imagine her working at Walmart, but as they pay so little and cut hours to avoid benefits, she would need another gig (or two). See my website for her other gigs as well as where I imagine today's Breadlines are and what Hobos are up to.

Step UP and Step IN Painting, Acrylic on Board W:24 H:20 in 2020 Arlette Poland

This is the first of two pieces on museum board created with acrylic. Each color, each brush stroke is part of the story and part of the question. This one asks if you can step UP to your best and kindest self even if time or other obstacles are in your way. And, this reminds you that the Way (Dao) calls you to step up... now! Can you step UP into your life even when the ground is cracked and floats? Even when the light calls you forward, can you still climb the ladder, step up to your best and kindest self?
