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.

Solo Show with Michael Thornton (Wood Fired Ceramics) 

Michael Thornton statement, "This exhibition combines work produced in my own studio with work produced during my recent residency in Japan, ranging from non-utilitarian to intimate-scale functional pieces.  Each pieces is individually made by hand.  Spontaneous decisions in the moment guide each piece's birth, as I design pieces which I would enjoy using.  The tangible product is a symbolic connection from my spirit to another's - serving to enhance the common experiences of eating, drinking, and living.

My ceramic work reflects an abiding interest in Eastern aesthetic philosophy.  In particular, I'm exploring the concept of wabi - sabi.  It is a view of artistic expression in which a quiet beauty is found in imperfection, in the weathered, in forlorn and the accidental.  I seek to embrace these aesthetic elements in the process, and to reflect them in this work."
