Artist's Statement:

"As a landscape photographer, I often need to trek and climb for miles, often hiking and overnight camping in inclement weather. Ill wait days to get the perfect light. In my equipment I need it to be extremely reliable in all weather, while providing maximum sharpness and detail. I need abundant resolution for the large prints landscapes require, all while minimizing weight. Canon provides all of this for me, with outstanding lenses, and the highest resolution single lens reflex camera on the market, the 50 megapixel 5dsr. As a professional photographer and over the past 20 years, I grew up shooting on film, and now mainly shoot on digital for these reasons listed above." -pbb

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.

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?

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.

Fred Montague

Art, writing, and teaching that foster environmental awareness and ecological consciousness.

Art Form: Painting
Artist's Statement: THE PHILOSOPHY: An indication of an aware and responsible society is its concern for vulnerable and aesthetic values. Wildness, wildlife, and wilderness are such values, and their appreciation and preservation are ecologically and culturally significant aspects of current affairs. Montague's activities in art, writing, and university teaching have centered ultimately on fostering environmental awareness and ecological consciousness. The foundation of his artwork is the ink image-- usually in the form of a carefully rendered pen-and-ink drawing or a hand-lettered paragraph. His goal, in this fast-paced, quickly changing, more complicated world, is to offer a revitalizing link to our ecological context-- Nature. THE DRAWINGS: The endangered tradition of creating images in ink with pen is a discipline of many demands. The medium, in all its black and white starkness, requires much, and there is little room for error. Furthermore, the artist states, "The greatest challenge is producing the effects of form, space, texture, and color merely by making black marks on white paper." Montague accomplishes these feats by painstakingly deliberate stippling and intricate cross-hatching. Some drawings have taken more than 200 hours to complete. The plants and animals come alive, and the habitats grow in space and detail as each ink dot and line is applied. The finished work becomes a window to the natural world. THE LIMITED EDITION PRINTS: Fred Montague prints most of his editions on a 1913 Golding hand-fed, platen letterpress. He prints some of his drawings from engraved plates. He learned printing by doing it-- after a printer-friend in Indiana gave him a vintage press. Montague moved the massive cast iron antique to his Utah studio from his Indiana studio in 1992. Printing is an interesting craft, and few people who create their own ink drawings print them on letterpress presses. The interplay between paper texture, ink density, image detail, and image pattern all come together as the large balance wheel spins and the platen holding the paper closes against the inked plate. The resulting embossed impression, almost carving-like, literally adds another dimension to the graphic work. He also uses this printing press to print his limited-edition woodcuts. He carves the woodcut masters from maple blanks that he modifies to fit the printing press.

Denise's unique designs are inspired by her love of Mother Nature, life in the west and her relationship to Spirit

Artist's Statement:

Originally from Colorado, many of Denise's unique designs are inspired by her love of Mother Nature, life in the west and her relationship with Spirit. Denise's original jewelry creations are the result of many hours of drawing the concept of her design, carving the wax sculpture, and casting the design using the lost wax technique. Some designs are created by using the fabrication process and gemstones are often added to enhance the creation. Denise is the designer/producer of the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Micro Cheering Bell and the Vail 99 Micro Cheering Bell. She has also designed jewelry for The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Teams, as well as creating a logo pendant for Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort. Her senses of adventure and free spirit have taken Denise to live in Colorado, Arizona, Montana, Alaska, Hawaii and currently Utah, where Denise has lived since 1995. Many of Denise’s creations reflect these beautiful places. Along the way Denise has studied at Pima College in Tucson Arizona, Flathead Community College in Kalispell Montana, The University of Alaska in Anchorage and on the Kenai Peninsula, The Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts and a variety of less formal structures.

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.

Ceramic pieces inspired by the natural world around me and reflecting my interest in geology, anthropology, science and the humanities

Art Form: Ceramics
Artist's Statement:

My ceramic pieces are inspired by the natural world around me and reflect my interest in geology, anthropology, science and the humanities as well as my need to create. The tactile nature of clay allows me to experience the pieces as I make them. Until the final kiln firing (usually to 2300* F), clay is constantly changing. It has the ability to mold and form in unlimited ways and can also be fragile and solid in its' drier stages. I am constantly challenged to create new forms with complex surfaces and this keeps me engaged and progressing. Pieces with multiple forms reflect how people (and I) relate to others. It is important to have a balance in these pieces and they are probably an attempt to find harmony in a sometimes crazy world. High fire stoneware and porcelain clays are used to form these pieces using both the potter's wheel and hand building. The layering of surface textures and design is something that calls for special attention and a lot of thought goes into this step. Surfaces designs may include embossing, carving, painting, glazing, stretching, and burnishing by themselves or combined for desired effects.

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!
