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.

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.

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.

I emulate nature and promote our individuality as humans

Art Form: Jewelry
Artist\'s Statement: The natural world is always pulling at you…. to come in and see her beauty and feel the “mystery of nature”, and so my work celebrates what I experience there. The Pacific-costal redwood forests haunt me. As I was developing my distinct style, memories from my visits to the redwoods kept appearing and inspired the textures and color palettes I began using. More importantly, it was the emotions I felt when standing in that primeval forest I started to capture, and a organic elegance and sense of antiquity showed up in my style. The ancient technique of granulation is perfect for creating organic textures. With a torch, I fuse tiny grains of gold and raised lines of silver onto the surfaces of my pieces. I then expand the technique by flowing melted gold in and around the applied textures. To achieve the rich color palette, I oxidize many of the pieces a deep black to illuminate the gold. The gemstones and the metal finishes I choose, allows me to express the dance of light and movement that water, sunlight, and breeze create in the forest. My work is done in a spontaneous manner, a vision maybe scribbled out as a starting point, but materials and technique guide the work into a finished piece. This evolutionary process keeps my creative thoughts flowing…. And makes me happy. I make one-of-kind pieces, each piece inspiring the next. Serial imagery or what I like to call the “kaleidoscope effect” is where I take a piece and redesign it…. and like the turn of the kaleidoscope, the variations are endless. By making one-of-a-kind pieces, I emulate nature and promote our individuality as humans, which I find a breath of fresh air in a world of mass produced, identical products.

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.

Each creation represents the presence of a sculpture-like feature of its own natural origin, allowing each image to have complete authenticity. Felix has developed a variety of methods to produce his own style of art. He is inspired and encouraged to pursue his interests in Native American Indian portraiture and wildlife. While using the natural contours/fractures mineral stains and fossil-like attributes, which each stone provides he thus creates his one-of-a-kind paintings or sculptures.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.”
