Rachel Miller is exhibiting sculptural pieces made from handmade paper and mixed media. Rachel has a fascination with undulating, sinuous line, form and texture she finds in the forms found in landscapes and flowers.
Joe Hoke acrylic paintings capture the atmosphere of a scenes in nature . His paintings may capture the day just after the rain stops, a foggy day in the hills or sun breaking through and illuminating part of a landscape.
Sally Sargent Markey’s watercolor representational paintings include local scenery and close up views of elements from nature. Light and shadow describe form and also add texture and rhythm to the painting’s surface. In her more abstract work she uses real objects inspired symbols, mood and deeper meanings.
