My art is layered like vails of wisdom settling on my phyche over time. I paint and scrub and sand the surface of a work then repeat the process until the history of mark-making reveals my inner self, when a vision unimagined ripens with power and emotion. Only then does a painting beg for community participation in a quest for beauty, truth and splendid imagery. It becomes a new reality, a place where mind and spirit meld to create an exceptional life.Read More Featured Artist | Terry Crump

Beauty is the main reason and purpose for my art. I spare no obstacle in both challenging and expressing the power and mystery of beauty.
My favorite media are acrylics and watercolor. The subject matter are birds in their real or mythological interaction with the human universe. I strive to depict the dualistic nature of reality, conscious and subconscious states of the mind, and to create examples of modern mythology. My paintings explore a dream-conscious state in order to increase a depth of perception and to develop a poetic world view.Read More Featured Artist | Vlasta Smola

My works are an interpretation of a voyage to self-discovery seen through the eyes of retained memories. Memories are the driving force that sculpt my paintings. When placed onto the canvas, the sequences of these memories intermingle to expose, at times, a sense of uniformity while, at other times, a juxtaposition of emotions, perceptions and a melded reality.Read More Featured Artist | J.

What touches me deeply nowadays is the increasing disconnection that people experience between and within themselves.
The development of technology, which is meant to increase communication, is paradoxically limiting the situations that favor genuine contact and is creating a very fast paced reality.Read More Featured Artist | Marina Clemente
