Susu Knight's statement, "I taught at St. John's College in Santa Fe for many years.  I primarily use pastels.  My landscapes reflect a lifetime passion for the American West.  I have studied its history, literature, geography and archaeology extensively and continue to discover new areas.  I believe my choice of subject often reflects a quality of intimacy and particularity which is almost portrait-like  My work wants to project a mood of tender and sometimes tenderly amused observation."

Marcia Newren's artist statement, "Kiln working, like most skills, is a broken field run of acquiring knowledge through trail and error.  The more experimentation, the wider the understanding becomes, slowly emerging in a less than linear fashion.  I love glass and wanted to learn to talk with it."

Vanderburg's statement, "Colors, shapes and textures that surround me are my inspirations while the printmaking process of reduction linocuts is my medium of choice to bring these inspiration to life.  Living, traveling and working in Africa, Europe, Central America and New Mexico have given me a wellspring of color and images."

An exhibit of artworks by Carol L. Adamec (Painter)

"April showers bring May flowers..." and kimonos and garden views with Carol L. Adamec' s exhibit "In a Japanese Garden,  Revisted".  "The Japanese word kimono means 'something to wear', "comments the artist.  "For me, the kimono is 'something to paint, a starting point for all kinds of creative visualization."

In her new exhibit, "In a Japanese Garden, Revisted", Adamec once again presents a diverse body of work featuring various configurations of kimonos and varieties of flowers.  In many of the pieces, the kimono shape mergers with its surroundings of flowers and foliage to express the beauty and harmony of "Man in Nature."  In other works, Adamec melds designs and traditions from other cultures, inventing a fusion of purely abstract or decorative imagery.

Having honed her skills as a realist painter for many years, Adamec's recent paintings of flowers indicate her move toward abstraction while preserving her love of beauty.  In some paintings the artist takes the viewer into the interior of the flower, rendered with exquisite detail that becomes an abstract environment.  In other compositions of floral groups, forms and colors are flattened, similar in style to the graphic qualities of traditional Japanese prints.
