Susanne Belcher

"This mixed media escapism, fun, whimsical series, “Coming Together Again”, took on a life of its own. I put aside my digital photo collages and picked up my paintbrush again. The work is uncharacteristic of anything I have ever done before but I have had such a thrill doing it.

The series became a positive outlet during Covid as our world still continues to yearn for unification and healing. It brings together sky travelers from all dimensions seeking a new world where happiness and safety abide, free of conflict and isolation. Joyful connections and reunions are made with old friends and new as stories are shared of experiences, exploration and adventure encountered along the way."

Andrew Eyler

"During the 15th century religious crusades, many of the murals of Alhambra, Spain were covered by layers of dark gray paint in an attempt to erase all traces of Islamic culture. The images in “Faces of Spain” are photographs of some of these hidden impressions; representing sacrifice and six mortal conditions: “Colonization” control, “Alienation” fear, “Annihilation” destruction, “Transformations” evolution, “Exodus” free will, “Hand of Fatima” love."

Gronk

"Gronk is easily one of the most recognized LA Chicano painters - and yet he remains a mysterious and mercurial figure. Growing up in East Los Angeles amid poverty and police riots, Gronk became an autodidact whose critical interests included art cinema, modernist theater, and campy B-movies, along with a wide array of philosophers, theorists, and writers. Also described as a co-founder of the Chicano conceptual art group Asco, Gronk’s work is a “hybrid voice that speaks in many artistic tongues”: painting, drawing, graphic arts, murals, performance art (street, stage, and video), photography, set design, ceramics, and computer-generated animation. Gronk’s self-invention, hybrid voice, and conceptualism pose a challenge to clear-cut categories, identities, and practices—including the gallery system, toward which he remains ambivalent, but within which he has succeeded. “In the end,” he explains, “I am not going to ask for permission to do something.”

Sylvia H.Goulden

“Music and dance have always been an interwoven part of my life, making it natural to convey these themes in my art and directing me to search for motion and energy as I work.

Approaching my work with dancing in mind, music playing and brush or tool in hand, I begin by improvising choreography, often beginning with one large sweeping movement. Motivated instinctively, I continue searching to reveal energy and a free spirit. My current focus is a series of abstracts using line and colors that dance, and that will inspire the viewer a journey into the window of space created.

My art continues to be an exploration of movement made visible.”

Martyn Jones

"The current series of watercolors were given titles specific to place and time, directly related to where and when the paintings were created. Shadows, edges, light and color and my experiences of the world at large are the prime material for abstraction.

I want the watercolors to convey a jewel-like quality through the use of color. Turquoise is often used and is a tranquil color, transcendent, quiet and deep. My aim for this series was to capture a sense of spontaneity and immediacy, welcoming people into my world, through a personal alphabet of shapes and color.
Watercolor paintings for me are often a starting point to be further developed into larger paintings on canvas, although they are also finished works and stand alone in their own right."

Suki Kuss


"The size and shape of a canvas does not dictate the time and amount of work that goes into the piece.This series of 12x12 collages are delicate and detailed, requiring many hours of intense work and scrutiny. Working on small canvases allows me the opportunity to enlarge and magnify areas of my larger pieces and work not yet created but living within me."

Kathe Madrigal


"The meeting of energy and matter is creation. I bring them together as they tell me.
Applying paint and editing back is one of my favorite techniques. Layers of structure and color are revealed through razors, blowtorch and hot wax. It’s a process of searching within our Psyche to discover our complex selves.“ - Kathe Madrigal

Tanya Wolf Ragir


"My life and my work are about overcoming limitations. Some are cultural, some political, some sexual - many are self-imposed.

I embrace the gravitas, the depth and breadth of the beauty of women, which is limitless. Growing up a dancer (and BEING a woman) informs everything I do as a sculptor. Movement and form is my language and vocabulary for everything.

I lost my father this year. It had a profound affect on me and my work. I am aware of my own mortality in a way I have never been before. I am in a different place in the arc of my life.

My current work, The Warrior Series, centers around states of being – facing internal/external barriers, struggle and loss." -  Tanya Wolf Ragir

Joshua Mc Grath

“Every Day, Miracles”


Joshua is an Autistic abstract painter who lives and works in La Crescenta, California. A native of Los Angeles County, his vibrant paintings and prints take the place of speech as his primary method of communication. His distinctive style expresses his full range of emotions, happiness and strength.

Gorgeous abstract visions, bathed in color and fine leaf like articulation are the hallmark of his work. Upon viewing his paintings, one can not help scanning the portraits for signs of nature, birds, fish, butterflies, etc. Joshua takes his inspiration from nature, hiking, camping and the people around him.

As a child Joshua would sit and draw endlessly on large sheets of paper. Now as an adult his love for paints, acrylics and metallic acrylics is insatiable. He is a very productive artist, creating finished pieces in a single burst of inspiration. Joshua works anytime day or night and is more often, himself, covered in paint than not.

Joshua is essentially non-verbal and creates as a primary way to express himself. Sometimes wild and powerful use of colors and brushstrokes, sometimes fine intricate work with slow gentle movements. Joshua finds comfort and solace in art as he releases his emotions into each application and movement of paint across the canvas. His choice of colors and technique are based on emotion and he begins each painting without hesitation or fear of making mistakes or concern for what others might think.

Joshua’s circle of support: those people most involved with Joshua throughout the years are all overjoyed and amazed with his talent and the beauty of his paintings. The pride his parents, relatives, loved ones, teachers, and assistants feel, is only matched by the pride Joshua feels about himself when he creates and shares his art with others.
