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.

A World Without People

Art Form: Photography
Artist\'s Statement:

I'm not sure why people expects artists to explain themselves. Certainly I don't require myself to justify or analyze what I do. I try to make beautiful visuals from natural scenes just because I love it, which is probably because I had a somewhat isolated childhood in the Nevada wilderness. It is essential that I feel I am good at this nature photography thing, and that I also feel I have lots of room to get better. It is a rather lonely endeavor, which suits me.

No question about one thing, however: If you try to compliment my work with that old cliche' "you must have a really great camera," you'd better turn and run because -- by god -- it's me, not the camera, that's producing this work. If you sincerely want to appreciate my art, hang some of it your home or office. Price doesn't matter, we'll find a way.

Walter Foster

12 year resident of Park City. Owner of Trout Tales fly fishing guide service and a part time professional artist currently displaying art at Lunds Fine Art Gallery in Park City.

Artist\'s Statement:

Walter Foster

Growing up in Vermont, Walter Foster spent summers fishing the small streams around his house and was fascinated by the spots and coloration of the small brook trout he used to catch. His first fish art started at age seven with a mechanical pencil, sketch pad, and an issue of Outdoor Life magazine. With an eye for detail, he tried to mimic every spot and pattern of the trout. “Every spot on every trout is unique, like no one fingerprint is the same.” Walter worked at Orvis in Manchester, Vermont from 1994-2000 and began his fly fishing guiding career on the Battenkill. After earning his B.S. in Environmental Studies from Southern Vermont College in 2000, he dabbled in the corporate world after graduation, but found his way back to fly fishing and guiding. He traveled west to California. While working as a flyfishing guide at Truckee River Outfitters, Walter attended the Clear Water Guide school on the banks of Hat Creek in Northern California. The stunning artwork displayed throughout the lodge brought back those artistic inspirations of early years. In 2005, Walter moved to Park City, Utah with his wife Andrea and worked as a full time guide at Trout Bum 2. In 2012, he started his own outfitter Park City Trout Tales. He remembered those art pieces displayed at Clear Water Lodge and felt an eagerness to get back into drawing and painting fish again. Thinking he was taking on a pastime or old hobby again, his fly fishing clients suggested otherwise. They took notice of his work, began requesting commissioned pieces of trout caught on past trips and started buying prints. Suddenly, Park City Trout Tales spun a second business, Fine Fin Art.
“Capturing a moment of time on the river that will last forever in my art will always inspire and challenge me in the studio.”

A world that exceeds the imagination and delights the eye

Art Form: Sculpture
Artist\'s Statement: Metal Sculpltor Zafod Beatlebrox says his ideas come from looking at things differently and deeply. His early scientific and mechanical career satisfied a craving to make things, but art satisfied his urge to create things. He works with clients to build a world that exceeds the imagination and delights the eye. Yet everything must be functional in order to make him happy. Zafod (pronounced ZAY-fahd) has lived near Park City for 25 years on the Aztec Art Ranch where he has his workshop.

This consultation is free of charge. If the client wants to proceed, a consultation fee is charged to create artist’s rendering(s) of concept proposal(s) which are then presented in a meeting to discuss and refine the ideas. If the client wishes to proceed, a budget is presented for final design and implementation. Zafod has 30 years of experience in construction, including home building, furniture-building, metal working, and concrete slab installation. He can work with plumbing, heating, lighting, electrical and other systems. He also subcontracts with experts in those areas.

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.

Kathy Cartier

Bold enough to be understood from a distance but still create an invitation to come closer and explore

Art Form: Fiber
Artist\'s Statement: Large scale collages are built by a layering of thoughts and ideas that evolve intuitively with each arrangement. Kathy Cartier’s work consists of mixed media, collage paintings and vessels composed of layers of handmade papers, paint and canvas. Her contemporary style often portrays both landscape and abstract designs. For many years she has specialized in traditional Japanese papermaking using oriental fibers that come from Mulberry trees. This process is the foundation she uses to create unusually rich and textured papers. Once the paper is made, it is cast onto rocks and other textured surfaces to create relief in her work. Inks, fabric dyes, acrylic paints and metallic powders are used for color and to highlight the forms. Silk and cashmere fibers are added for textural interest. For reflective qualities gemstones, glass beads and metal fragments are hand sewn onto the paper’s surface. This entire process is as rewarding to Kathy as her finished art work. Cartier's compositions are bold enough to be understood from a distance but still create an invitation to come closer and explore their intimate surfaces alive with texture and visual energy. Angel Dolls are created from hand-made paper, silk and cashmere fabric, dyes, acrylic paints and metallic powders.

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.

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 its’ final 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 unmoving 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.

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.

Luminous Encaustic works that often “bury” items like rusted paper and fabric for a luscious effect

Art Form: Painting
Artist\'s Statement: Sharon Sams is a Park City Artist that works in Mixed Media and Encaustic. Mixed Media is very freeing and forgiving. She discovered Encaustics and often incorporates this beautiful technique in her predominantly abstract art. The technique allows her to often “bury” items like rusted paper and fabric in her Encaustic works. The luminous effect is luscious and dreamy. Her love of paper initially drew her to original card making and Mixed Media Collages. She fell in love with Encaustics beautiful waxy look and saw its potential with her Mixed Media. She also enjoyed moving in a more painterly direction. She has taken workshops in Encaustics with nationally renowned artists and teachers such as, Lorraine Glessner, Jeff Juhlin, Shawna Moore & Daniella Woolf. Her work is inspired by color, texture, patterns and shapes. Encaustics layering capabilities and luminous quality enable her paintings to hint at stories, images and landscapes, buried in the wax. Recently, she has been exploring Acrylic Monotypes on paper. The process is more spontaneous than Encaustics, but still allows for interesting and beautiful layering. As Sharon’s life changes, her inspirations change, so follows her art. But ultimately, she loves creating beautiful and interesting pieces of art to enjoy……simple as that!

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.
