Charcoal Drawing with Gold Leaf

SOLD

 

Capturing the essence is everything! I enjoy exploring and experimenting with light and shadow the most. It keeps me coming back to my easel. It's a way to tell a story that can bring clarity and emphasis to a piece. I strive to get all of the different elements that make up my piece to relate to each other in a meaningful way.

Spirit of Our Sisters (Series)

Kara Bialecki

Watercolor Paintings

$250 (Original)

$75 (print)

I started this painting series as I became aware of the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous Women and the need to actively do something about it. Over 5,000 Indigenous Women were known to be missing in 2016 – only 116 were logged in the US missing persons database. 50 percent of each artwork sold will go to the Sovereign Bodies Institute, the only organization creating a comprehensive database of missing Indigenous Women.

My work is created from observations of the world we live in. As both a dancer and an artist, I am intrigued in the human body, the world, and the identity that we create for ourselves in this relationship. Seeing the beauty that exists and creating from that.

 People I Met Along The Way (Series)

Kathrine Mansfield

Metal Print

$215

When the global pandemic made photographing people nearly impossible, I turned my lens to likenesses of people. People I Met Along the Way is a series of statue portraits captured during eerily quiet morning and evening walks through my neighborhood. Just like life in green phase isn’t quite “normal,” these portraits are not exactly what comes to mind when one thinks “portrait.” Each subject in this series has its own personality, and while the photographs I’ve created tell that statue’s story, each image should impress upon you the importance of real human connection

Study of a Skull with Money

Susie Humphrey

Oil on Gesso Board

Not For Sale

This painting was inspired by my trip to New Orleans last fall. In the back corner of most of the many voodoo shops, there was an alter where travelers had left small offerings for good fortune and health. I had traveled to the city alone, something that I had never done before, and I learned so much about myself as a human and an artist. I was drawn to the mysteries, history, and rich culture of the city. When the pandemic hit, I returned to the same feelings I had when I first got to New Orleans, which was an overwhelming feeling of being lost and alone in world that I was unfamiliar with. 

The skull represents life, death and the human experience. The red book, a symbol of the government and its history, is stacked on top of the medical book, which represents the current pandemic. The money just like the alters of New Orleans, has been placed for good fortune and health.

America In Bloom

Courtney J Hampton

Acrylic Painting

$250

America is a country that has been in great turmoil for a while. Daily servings of current events with a pandemic on top have only drawn attention to the depth of the hole that we are in as a nation, but also shined a light on disparities amongst us as people. Half-truths and whole lies have caused a major divide as people cling to the ideas that either inconvenience them the least or comfort them the most...instead of accepting reality. This is not political. There is right or wrong. You care about others or you don’t. You are selfish or you are considerate. You believe that all of us are equal or you don’t. You believe that everyone deserves the basic necessities of life or you don’t. We have many problems, but the solution isn’t found in destroying one another in any sense. The answer is to regroup and find the solution together. Us versus the real enemy - not you versus me…Otherwise, we will destroy ourselves.

Unification

Ashli Barron

Acrylic Painting

Not for Sale

While the pandemic has brought a lot of chaos, I wanted to bring a sense of color to the situation. This time of disruption and upheaval has brought us together, regardless of our differing identities. Every single one of us is experiencing the current pandemic. This painting symbolizes the way in which we are unified as humans during this crisis. My hope in making this piece was to give people a unified perspective about the pandemic. While we are all going through many detrimental transitions, I believe that we will become stronger as a human race by being attuned to one another during these times.

Triangle of Trying Times

Rachna Rajen

Acrylic Painting on Wood

$1000

My work is mostly abstract drawing and painting, primarily in watercolor, pencil, and ink, and can be split into two distinctive categories: patterns and landscapes. The pattern style of artwork is influenced by my Indian background, specifically deriving from textiles. I feel the textile and pattern motifs that arise in my work are due to the meditative quality of repetitive marks. I use repetitive mark-making as a means of communicating a higher ideal, which is reaching transcendence through a creative process.

Solitude

Courtney J Hampton

Acrylic Painting on Vinyl

$700

Might the word bring you peace or unrest? When we are surrounded by nothing but our own thoughts and emotions, the silence is loudest. Whether this is a positive or negative rests entirely on one’s predilection or predisposition. Isolation always creates the perfect unrelenting brainstorm which excites arduous emotional rainfall….a washing of residual imprints from our souls. Solitude is not meant to enervate, it exists to heal. We will arrive on the other end of this stronger. This painting emerged when my personal thoughts and emotions were at an extreme as I struggled to make sense of the occurrences around me - while I sat - powerless - isolated from it - from everyone. During this pandemic, many of us have struggled - especially mentally. There has been fear, anger, frustration - the latter being the most prevalent…it seems. I wanted to capture the frustration of attempting to dampen those negatives…while unwittingly working through them.

Lilith

Jay Del Greco

Mixed Media on Wood

SOLD

My work's purpose is to give shape to shapeless things, namely time, weight, heat, darkness, and distress. I use representational surreal imagery, found objects, and titles to indirectly suggest meaning without dictating it. I'm more interested in evoking an emotional response from the viewer than I am in making a statement. The viewer completes the work. Despite my works' equivocal intent, it is sophisticated in technical execution. I like to give the viewer as much as possible to absorb.


From a technical standpoint, I work primarily with materials pulled from the real world. I rarely buy any materials from art supply stores. Each piece is very sculptural mixed media, generally on wood, involving any combination of house paint, spray paint, polyurethane, epoxy resin, burnt wood, various rusted metals, twine, string, yarn, duct tape, electrical tape, wire, cloth, vinyl, permanent marker, pencil, photos, and/or various found objects.
