A coupling of the traditional quality workmanship of American Arts & Crafts pottery, with original regionally themed and inspired decoration and forms

Art Form: Ceramics
Artist\'s Statement: A coupling of the traditional quality workmanship of American Arts & Crafts pottery, with original regionally themed and inspired decoration and forms. My work includes platters, bowls, vases, beautiful lamp bases, and a range of smaller items and gift items. Unique items emerge from every kiln load. True porcelain pottery is handcrafted by me on the wheel, and then decorated using a variety of techniques. Some items are translucent when held up to a strong light source. Since this is highfire porcelain, it is harder than glass, and safe to use, but not cookware. do not thermal-shock pottery. Many items have built-in hangers for displaying.

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.

Vibrant animal paintings, with a connection that comes through to the viewer

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

I work in acrylic, mostly on paper but at times on cradle boards. When I began to paint I started with oils. I currently work in acrylics layering them as I used to layer oils. This creates depth in my paintings. 

My inspiration comes from animals  because I have a great passion for them and always have.  All animals have an honesty of spirit that I work very hard to capture in my work. 

I do not discriminate, I paint all animals from fish to lions, the majority of my work currently are dogs and cats. 

I have been doing a series of what I call Partials. I crop my photos down to the smallest section of my subject that I can and still capture their essence!

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!

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

"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

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.
