"Over the past several years, I have developed a vocabulary of imagery that centers around thin bands of color and light. Sometimes they are stacked on top of each other, sometimes they crisscross the picture plane in seemingly random directions, layer upon layer. For me, the channels are metaphoric of a kind of connectivity and connectedness." 
Jonah Ward, 2D Mixed Media

"I use Madrone tree bark and wasp nests, adhering them onto wood canvas in my Textured Painting series. I burn abstract lines into wood panels using molten glass in my Glass Burned Panel series."

"The appreciation of art and design is all but required for truly enlightened living. We cherish art's ability art to inspire a smile, laugh or thoughtful conversation...and enjoy it all the more with a glass of wine in hand." 
Steve Javiel, painting

"My work is focused around experimenting with recreating the aged, decayed, layered surfaces around me. I believe that these aged surfaces tell a story and that they are a raw reflection of their environment—the aging is not premeditated."

"I love to talk with visitors about my work and the places I've traveled and photographed. I use both digital and antique film cameras to create fine art photography. All images are chemically processed photographs."

Emilio Sotelo, Jewelry Design

"I hand make my jewelry using saw blades to cut the shapes from laminated silver sheets, and dapping tools to give the concave or convex shapes." 
Phillip Hua, 3D Mixed Media

Phillip Hua, 3D Mixed Media

"In my work, I address environmental concerns through the use of everyday materials like newspapers, tape, construction paper, light, and time. Using these elements, I create performative works on paper that change, creating a gradual cinematic experience for the viewer." 
Elana Melissa Hill, painting

"I move through urban and rural spaces. I collect textures, forms, and silhouettes to use in my paintings, feeling as if I am navigating languages written by others, taking notes in order to create my own." 
Ken Berman, Painting

Ken Berman, Painting

"I begin each painting with black gesso, add my construction lines in white colored pencil and then apply several layers of oil paint with brush, palette knife and roller to create my finished work."

"I carefully hand select all of my ingredients, and incorporate salvaged & recycled material in many of my pieces. My inspiration stems from my travels and my beloved community around the world." 
Daniela Cunha Lay, painting

Daniela Cunha Lay, painting

“While Warhol’s body of work repulses me in that it is rooted in the superficial glorification of fame and fortune, he does inspire me aesthetically….though what he very lucidly depicts as coveted and appealing Hollywood glamour, I see as less-enticing, conflicting emotional terror.” 
Shelly Hanan, photography

Shelly Hanan, photography

"Over the past 20 years of my career, I have seen my work transform from "traditional" landscapes to more abstract and surreal work." 
Anna Nelson, painting

Anna Nelson, painting

"My Italian heritage is a constant in my heart and soul and the beauty of Italy is an endless inspiration in both my Plein Air work and studio paintings." 
Lisa Kaplan

"I am deeply concerned with environmental and socio-political issues, specifically those pertaining to responsible decision making with regards to natural resources and sustainability of our planet for generations to come." 
Karen Lynn Ingalls, painting

Karen Lynn Ingalls, painting

"My colorist landscape paintings of rural California often employ yellows and oranges, and warm blues and greens that glow with a warmth redolent of a kind of eternal summer, a kind of archetypal last, golden hour of the day. " 
Matt Sarconi, 3D Mixed Media

Matt Sarconi, 3D Mixed Media

"My artwork starts as a single, original photograph. I then cut it into layers and put it back together, with spacing in between the layers, giving it a 3D effect." 
Sean Ramm, painting

"Focusing on artists who have suffered from addiction, I feel that immortalizing them in glitter is a beautiful juxtaposition of the glitzy, glamour and fame they were forced to endure that inevitably led them toward a darker path." 
Scout Mandolin, diamond jewelry design

Scout Mandolin, diamond jewelry design

Scout Mandolin is intentionally evocative of past, present and future. ‘Scout’ is the soft, precise search for love manifest in design – the search for who he or she is and what makes him or her unique; ‘Mandolin’ is the allegorical essence of the sweet country melodies that captured Julie’s imagination as a girl growing up in the south. 
Deirdre Shibano, painting

"My work is done from life. This is the tradition of oil painting." 
Richard Von Saal

Penelope Moore, painting

Penelope Moore, painting

"My paintings are a reflection of my own passion for food, wine and joie de vivre. They are contemporary in style with an emphasis on color, mood and light. Through my subject matter, I portray a unique twist on life’s simple pleasures." 
Bob McClenahan, photographer

"My goal as a photographer is to make my clients look good. Women should look beautiful. Guys should look cool. Events should look fun. Bottles should look perfect. Napa Valley should look idyllic." 
Colleen Blinoff
