Caroline Korbell Carrington   more info 

"My Concern as an artist is to discover a personal vision through nature. The landscapes I paint are new and old places I have traveled that have a magical, sacred quality. The rugged beauty of the South West has captured my heart and senses like no other place. I feel that by painting the landscape I celebrate its awe inspiring beauty."

"There are few Austin artists I admire more than Flato . . . . Flato overlaps pale smudges of color — like layered crepe paper — mirroring the play of light, the diaphanous quality of water and the thickness of greenery in western landscapes."

Charles Field    more info  

"The immediacy of plein-air painting is exhilarating. I can see and feel the enormous sweep of nature with all elements in motion. In the studio, my approach is as direct as when I am working in the field. I have painted on the remote coasts of Ireland, Nova Scotia, the Pacific Northwest, as well as Tuscany, New Mexico, the Texas Hill Country and Gulf Coast. Many of my paintings might be called "skyscapes," as the infinite space and illumination of the sky are key to my compositions. I love to move paint and color in response to the challenge of natural form, space and light."

"My work reflects the serendipitous circumstances that enable objects to present themselves to me for use in my assemblages/collages.  In my current work I am focusing on the universal language of numbers which allows the viewer to relate to time and events in both the past and the present.  My use of numbers, in their qualitative sense, evoking their distinguishing attributes, allows for symbolic interpretation."

  Jan Heaton       more info

Jan’s watercolors offer a personal viewpoint that celebrates nature, and then abstractly reach beyond the obvious. Heaton’s watercolors are inspired by the structure, color, line and pattern of elements in nature that are often overlooked. Her work isolates details and exposes the viewer to an everyday object or place seen from a new perspective. She incorporates her background in calligraphy and graphic design to create sensuous and abstract organic forms.

Carol Ivey    more info  

I like to take seemingly insignificant artifacts of life and celebrate them. Discarded objects and plant material ready for the compost pile as well as more expected still life objects are my subjects. Through arranging them in various relationships and sequences, I question the nature of brevity and permanence."

"My painting process relies on direct observation and natural light."

Kraig Kiedrowski     more info  

"I can divide my current landscapes into roughly two groups, the vistas and my “little building paintings” or “suburban scenes”. The vistas are about space and atmosphere. The suburban scenes are about intimacy and the beauty in the familiar.

An artist’s job is to convey a sense of the world that is unique and at the same time universal. If I can speak to that through an evening sky over a flooded field or sunlight on a paint peeled garage door I feel I have succeeded."

Mark has spent the last 13 years traveling the American West from Texas to California and from Arizona to Montana. "Everywhere I've traveled, I've had the good fortune to meet hard-working, decent men and women who are following a life-style that is, at the same time, both noble and disappearing. It's my privilege to chronicle their struggle to keep the tradition of the West alive.

"Landscapes most clearly represent human passage. The artist says, “Here, look at this. I have seen this. I know this place.” When we contemplate the land before us, we impose upon it all the metaphoric weight of our wondering and our guilt; our ability to manipulate, or deny our impact, enchant and question our existence."

"It’s all about color and contrast, line and design; it’s all about celebrating the infinite manifestation of our world: subtle transitions, acrimonious juxtapositions, positive and negative spaces, fluidity and stasis and; it’s about balance, walking the razors edge."

"A moment in nature is my usual inspiration for a painting. Everything in nature is in a constant state of change. Whether the variations are dramatic or subtle, there are evolutions every year, every day - every moment. I can't capture all of them, but hopefully, at the end of the day, a few of them will become pieces of art and will be memorable in some small way."

Matt Morris    more info

Matt Morris is a partner with nationally acclaimed Lake/Flato Architects in San Antonio. He was made a Fellow in the American Institute of Architects in 2006 for his design and artistic sensibilities. While crafting a career in design as an architect he was busy studying the built and natural environment on paper and canvas as an artist. It is impossible to separate art from architecture so Matt blends his analytic rigor as an architect with the fluid expressive nature as an artist. The results are an expressive landscape presentation like no one else.

Lorraine Shirkus    more info

Since switching from a more abstract style to a representational one, my goal has been to work from observation in a non-literal way. My focus is on capturing the essence or feeling of a subject through painterly strokes and unexpected color rather than achieving a faithful portrayal. It’s gratifying  to watch a painting evolve and take on a life of its own.

I enjoy what strong, natural light does when it illuminates objects. -- Jane Wells

"I am a painter. I see everything in terms of what it would look like as an oil painting. When something brightly lit catches my eye, I sketch the shapes I see, record the colors and take a photograph. In my studio, I lay in large areas of color, pushing the oil paint back and forth, manipulating it into a balanced composition."
