Emily Trovillions' artist's statement, "I've known many people who collect things, from bottles to boxes of displayed insects, to archaic books, to odd shaped mirrors. I consider myself a collector of faces.  I draw them from life, my imagination, photographs in newspapers, vernacular shots and magazines while always altering them, even their genders.  I then piece them together with animals, plants and minerals almost like assemblage.  When I paint, I imagine them in strange future landscapes - maybe "post-apocalyptic".  They are often presented in groups contemplating their own reasons for being and the why of the universe.  During our current global turmoil when Orwellian double speak is called alternative facts and the age of reason is an ancient myth, my characters are puzzled but very adaptable.  They empathize with the fellow animals and sympathize with the trees.  In the current sleep of reason my characters emblemize human consciousness, such that it is. "

Watts' statement, "The Zen Buddhist philosophy emphasizes reaching a state of mind where only you and the task at hand reside in your awareness.  This is the state of mind that I try to reach while turning wood or fabricating parts for sculpture in my studio.

Each piece of wood is unique and rarely perfect.  knots, crotches, and twisted grain are prized and incorporated to best blend with the whole and sometimes to emphasize an interesting grain pattern, or maybe a flaw like a knothole."

A Solo exhibition of Carol Sanchez (Print Maker)- Local Treasure

From:  1-3:00 PM

Carol Sanchez' prints are rich and seductive organic forms.  She works in the printmaking process of Mezzotint, which lends to her vision of "Organic Abstractions".  He Mixed Media Constructions up-cycle her prints/proofs and copper plates to create "Contemporary Relics".

Sanchez statement, "I abstract organic forms and re-articulate them into my own visual language, into "Organic Abstractions".  Nature is my source of inspiration, but as a printmaker process is very important.  I try to create a balance between technique and concept.  My work evolves intuitively, images develop from a first mark without any preconceived ideas or images.  As a printmaker working primarily in the process of mezzotint, this can be a difficult way to begin.  For me it keeps things fresh and challenging.  the process of mezzotint has a very rich and seductive quality, which lends to my imagery.  I strive to create images that have an essence of beauty.  I accentuate the sensual and spiritual characteristic and draw out the beauty from the ordinary.
