Universal themes that invite viewers to take a closer look and contemplate emotion, fears, success and joy

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement: Corinne Humphrey’s bold whimsical paintings have many layers. At first glance, paintings in the “Tao of Rudy” series appear as simple, child-like images of her rescued dog and muse, Rudy. Upon closer inspection, one discovers deeper meaning with titles like “Don’t Be Afraid to Leave the Path,” “Find a Balance,” “Wake Up to Love,” “Take the Leap,” and other universal themes that invite viewers to take a closer look and contemplate emotion, fears, success and joy. “Her paintings draw people in…” says one collector. “The message is so simple, but so big, like a lesson on how to live well,” says another. “Your paintings are so HAPPY,” “They really resonate with me,” and “They make me smile,” are just some of the comments made by art lovers of all ages. ?????????????? The paintings in the “Tao of Rudy” series are also the illustrations for three, multiple award-winning children’s books: The Tao of Rudy; Shoot for the Moon, Lessons on Life from a Dog Named Rudy; and Wake Up to Love, Lessons on Friendship from a Dog Named Rudy. Corinne’s books have been awarded a Bronze “IPPY” award for “Most Outstanding Book Design,” “Honorable Mention for Book of the Year,” “Gelette-Burgess Motivational/Inspirational Award” and a “Gold Moonbeam Children’s Book Award,” making them a perfect gift for young art lovers or as a companion piece to a painting or print. Corinne works mainly in acrylic on canvas, using bright, solid colors and clean lines. She also produces pieces in gouache, oil, watercolor sketches and mixed media. Her mixed media pieces incorporate old sheet music, maps, book titles, scrabble letters and other items that inform and shape her themes.

A World Without People

Art Form: Photography
Artist's Statement:

I've never been comfortable explaining what I do. From a practical viewpoint, most photography is art of one kind or another, which makes me an artist, and my job as an artist is to be authentic in presenting my vision of the world and my emotional reaction to it. From a philosophical point of view, there is a great body of thought which maintains that objective reality does not exist, and any claim that one perception is more real than another is inherenty false. Furthermore, it is the task of the observer, not the artist, to understand these viewpoints and place the art in this context. In other words, I don't have to explain myself.

I've called Park City home since 2014. My inspiration is born from Utah's diverse landscape.

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement:

Welcome to a western landscape so wondrous and vast, it could swallow you. When it spits you back out, you might just become something. New.

There’s freedom in isolation. Alone in the mountains, there’s excitement for the unknown, and fear for the forces we cannot control.

What makes you an artist?

A decision.

Like leaving the trail.

Leaving the group.

Fleeing the comforts of the city, to enter the wilderness.

 

Sometimes, the only thing to fill that echoing void of self-doubt is an infinite blue horizon, a craggy ridgeline or a wildflower pressing through ice and stone. The resilience of the natural world can give fire to our most absurd dreams.

 

May my paintings make you feel small in a world full of mystery.

 

 

 

The spirit that first called humans to pioneered these unforgiving lands is still alive. In the West of our hearts, there’s a distant cry telling you how to get to where you’re going. Bravery waits for those who venture far from the familiar.

 

On the edge of the American West.

Where the lone roam free— is where I want to always be.

Judy Summer

Stylized free spirited horses, masks and other forms that convey fluid motion and abstract expression

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist's Statement: Fluid motion and sense of graceful energy are captured in the dramatic equine sculpture of Judy Summer. They are a statement about living her life and her connection to the dynamic energy of the natural world. Judy arrived in park city in the"70s after many years in the artistic environment of Couthern California. "it was an era, where people were open to rethinking their relationship to life and to the arts." Her New York City schooling in Fine Art and Education encouraged her to find her artistic voice in sculpture. From limited edition bronze, to small pieces to be worn as jewellery, her award winning art has been collected world wide. In the late 80's, Judy discovered the "new clay". Her experimentation in this medium eventually led to her adopting this as her primary sculpture material. Judy finds endless possibility in polymer clay. Its intrinsic malleability, strength, forgiveness and exciting color embody what she portrays in her sculpture and life as well. In the early 80s,judy spearheaded the founding of the Park City Professional Artists’ Association. She has also since lent her support and creativity to civic organizations, as well as founding "Artworks Gallery," and helping to found "Arts Kids". She presently lives on her small ranch on the outskirts of park city with two funny, kind horses and a spunky little dog. Here is where she works, shares creativity, and enjoys the inspiring vistas of the mountains and ever changing sky

Hardwood, driftwood, and other wood knots become creative objects to complement the stones

Art Form: Jewelry
Artist's Statement: The jewelry-making process is quite time consuming, taking over TWO YEARS to complete! First the roots are dug up, the smaller branches are cut off, the dirt is washed off, and then they are stacked to dry outside in the dry western climate for two years. This allows the bark to fall away, leaving the hard root wood begging to be worked with. The wood is thoroughly cleaned and sanded, and stones are chosen to complement the wood. Found hardwood, driftwood, and other wood knots become creative objects as well. The wood is either left with a natural colored finish or highlighted in varying wood tone stains to complement the stones. The wood receives three to five coats of a protective water-based or polyurethane finish, with sanding between coats. The gemstones, beads, and chains are all connected together to form the interesting one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry ready for you to wear. Please enjoy! `

Photos of wildlife and the geometric patterns that can be found in the natural world.

Art Form: Photography
Artist's Statement:

A love of Nature has always been an important part of Ginny Coombs' life. She notices the rhythmic patterns that can be found in a brook or the detailed markings on individual wild animals or birds. Ginny has developed a keen eye for the subtleties of what she sees and shares with the viewer an appreciation of the displayed scene with an expanded viewpoint. Whether Ginny is sketching or doing photograph work, she looks for the revealing patterns of light and dark. She captures the scene with a photographic composition that is visually balanced. The main ingredient for successful photographs is to just 'get out there', not mind inclement weather and be observant of the artistic opportunities whether it is a vast expanse of unending scenery or a small plant with its subtle beauty that catches the viewer's attention.

Creativity is the highest form of intellegence

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement: I love rich, vibrant colors, and the organic shapes in nature. I love having fun with different patterns. I love twisting reality just enough to make the real unreal. Many of the paintings are of the scenery in and about Park City and Summit County. When I take a walk in a natural setting I 'see' the painting before I paint it. My paintings take a long time to produce but I enjoy the process. It's not a race. I know when I'm finished with a painting when I love it.
Beeswax based paint is a versatile and dimensional medium. I have embedded a variety of materials into the wax including coins, leaves, paper, metal, beads, wire, paper and fiber. These paintings are highly textured and full of fun detail.

Inspired by nature but not caught in reality, these paintings focus on the essence of receding mountains and the vastness of canyon walls

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement: Paintings that are inspired by nature but don't get caught in reality. The rhythms of receding mountains and the vastness of canyon walls push Susan's paintings to focus on the essence, not the photographic reality. Her bold use of acrylic color adds to the abstraction. Since moving to Utah from Vermont, her work has reveled in the beauty of newness, starkness, clear light and forever blue skies.

Stone is used to represent other natural subjects that share the stones' color, pattern, and texture

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist's Statement: A beautiful mountain trout freed from Verdi Fire granite, clouds envisioned in polished marble, and other natural subjects are the themes of David Cornwell's stone art. Using his training as a stained glass artist, he has discovered a way to cut and shape the granite, marble, onyx, and stone tiles to create images we see in nature. Stones are selected by their unique color, pattern, and texture to produce a palette as distinctive as a painter's colors. Meticulous cutting and fitting turns the pieces into natural subjects that share the stones' character.

Painting feeds my soul like no other discipline. Expressing myself with color, texture and spontaneity is pure joy.

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement:

“If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.” -Edward Hopper- Many people ask why I paint. My answer is best described in the above quote. My passion for creating a piece of artwork is not only thought based but also process based. Painting feeds my soul like no other discipline. Expressing myself with color, texture and spontaneity is pure joy. The process is a familiar ritual that comforts and inspires as I squeeze out luscious oil paint, prepare supports, load my brushes and palette knives with paint, and apply bold strokes of color to my surface. My subjects are those that speak to me personally and can include landscape, still life, and figurative work. It isn’t always the most beautiful things that inspire me, but most often something that grabs me and won’t let go – like a song or quote that keeps playing over and over in my head. Light and shadow are two important elements that tend to get my attention as well as a dynamic composition. My style leans most toward realism with a painterly twist. I have an immense respect for the artists that have come before me, and the lessons they continue to teach.

CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE/ WATERSCAPES

Nature is the inspiration behind many of my paintings, and always a place that rejuvenates my spirit.  I love painting in Plein Air, and use what I learn from the small sketches and photographs I take to create my abstracts.  I love to delve deeper into what is behind a pretty landscape, and what images and memories it conjures up when you view my paintings.  I want my viewer to say, “ that painting reminds me of…”   Many times I start a painting not knowing exactly where it'll take me, so I let go of the plan and let it take me where it wants to go.   I believe in "Less is more"  it makes a much more interesting painting.  So have a look, I hope it inspires you to see the beauty we are surrounded by!

I was exposed to art at a very young age and have pursued my artistic passions with conviction for many years, the adventure has increased exponentially with time.

Art Form: Painting, Jewelry
Artist's Statement:

I am inspired to create jewelry that is a part of me, colorful, textural, made to last, everyday wearable, makes a statement, is fun to wear and possibly has a story behind it.

My work as a silver/gold smith, began as a summer job in 1973 and now some 40 years later has become not only my passion but my serious artistic pursuit. My studio in my house is cozy, sunlit, filled with a collection of a life devoted to my craft, and my sanctuary, where I get to design and create jewelry! What could be better?
