“I’ve been working with a visual vocabulary of shapes that tell a universal story. Painting, printmaking, and mixed media are my primary creative processes. I try not to have any predetermined outcomes but see where the work will take me.”

Kristin Freeman

Kristin is a muralist and painter who focuses on messages of love, female empowerment, and inspiration through her work. 

Nevena Bentz

Nevena Bentz’s work focuses on the complex relationships between people and their surroundings. Her pieces highlight the interconnectedness of all forms of life on the planet. The human and the natural are contrasted, but fuse and reinforce the idea of their oneness. The feminine subjects highlight the nurturing and healing attributes of women and Nature, their resilience and ability for renewal.

Gert Johan Manschot

My art is strongly influenced by a long-term study and teaching of meditation. In spirit, I follow in the tradition of Zen calligraphers and painters who empty their minds to open up to a larger or higher mindless awareness that exceeds the level of ego or self.

Michael Penn Smith

I enjoy exploring the power of photography for creative expression and for sharing the human experience.  When shooting I’m working to unveil the extraordinary whenever I find it, faintly glimmering within the ordinary.

Gloria Dimcheva Webster

Searching for beauty….and hopefully finding it.

My art is an expression of that which is not immediately visible, an internal state or feeling, a fleeting moment. Life would be unimaginable without this expression and creative outlet, which has sustained me through my journey.

Cindy Miller Lopez

Cindy Miller Lopez was born in Dallas, Texas where she lived for the majority of her early childhood before moving to Colorado.  Cindy’s contemporary acrylic and mixed media artwork has been displayed and sold at a variety of public venues and galleries in Texas and California. 

Taylor Dueker

Working primarily with acrylics, I develop relationships between forms and colors with a sense of motion, tension, balance, and with the intention of communicating a design logic emanating from the subconscious. Of primary importance in my design are the concepts of line, continuation, juxtaposition, intersection, edge, angularity, texture, and freedom creating a three dimensional perception.

Art is said to be a spiritual endeavor and I agree wholeheartedly.
