When human stories, history, cultures and political realities interact with everyday settings, common scenes become quite extraordinary.

Art Form: Painting
Artist\'s Statement: I am a watercolorist with a love of travel. I often utilize my photographs from far away places for my renderings; however, I also enjoy painting the diversity of landscapes in Park City area as well. I am inspired by scenes and encounters that are often considered very ordinary and only earn a glance from passersby in their locales. When the human stories, history, cultures and political realities that accompany the settings are considered, these common scenes become quite extraordinary. I design my material first with my camera lens from many different angles, portray it with colors that come from life, and hope that the result offers the viewer an opportunity to visit the sites and absorb the stories, if only for a moment or two.
Seven years ago I retired from my position as the State Director of Special Education after a thirty-six year career as a special educator. Although I will always remain a passionate advocate for children with disabilities, it is thoroughly enjoyable to have more time for the world of art as well.

Amanda Charlton

Lifelong horsewoman and equine artist.

Art Form: Painting, Other Media
Artist\'s Statement:

Amanda Charlton

Charlton is a lifelong horsewoman who has made equestrianism and the art that is connected to it her life's vocations. 

 

Artist Statement:

Essentia Equi, Latin for “the essence of the horse,” is my artistic venture to represent through physicality what I feel emotionally within my work with equines. I notice lots of parts; I notice lots of layers, I notice patterns, and I feel how those parts and layers and patterns move into one another, on top of and beneath one another, when I open myself up to the horse’s experience.


I use Essentia Equi to communicate what I feel with horses, for a picture is worth a thousand words. I work to communicate the blend of many truths and every shade of grey within the essence of the horse. I strive to capture the unique movement, fluidity and electricity that comprise the essence of the individual. Through this study, I have learned that horses must be granted the freedom to move and change as they need. I have learned that we are not so different and that I must grant myself the same right—this equality between species offers a true respect for life.


Charlton participated in the world's longest horse race, the Mongol Derby, this past August 2017 to raise awareness and funds for rainforest conservation and wild mustang adoption.

The pleasure of a finished piece of jewelry comes from hours of searching the desert for rough stones, polishing gems, and fabricating silver into a piece of art.

Art Form: Jewelry
Artist\'s Statement: Jewelry is a moment of enjoyment which can last forever. As a prospector, gem-cutter and silversmith, I spend years preparing for that moment. My early work is very geometric, and I still like to design a piece that captures the formal modernism of mid-century Berkeley. The newest work has an organic interplay between polished stone and metal.  I try to capture a flow of nature that is frozen in time.

Artist\'s Statement:

Creation of art is a natural desire, which is coming right from an artist's heart. Somebody long time ago gave an advice to a young poet: "If you can help it - do not write [poetry]". It is still true and applicable to any form of art.

Artist\'s Statement:

Modern Deco

I create minimal modern designs using 1920's hand blown glass beads from the famed Bauhaus studio in Germany.  These creations include 14k gold, sterling silver, pure silk, raw copper, raw brass along with hours upon hours of drawing, designing and hand making each piece.

These rare beads were found in the rubble of the bombed Bauhaus studio 20 years after World War II.  My husband and I were traveling through Europe when by chance we had dinner next to the family rebuilding.  By dessert I had bought as much of the collection as possible.

Since all the mold were broken each bead is highly prized for its limited quantity.

Ginny Coombs

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.

David Cornwell

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.

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.
