Our 2018 show was a rousing success with lots of visitors and sales for the artists, and this year’s show is going to be our best ever. This is our group’s only non-juried show, which offers aspiring artists an opportunity to be involved in hanging and selling their work alongside established professionals. Art Bash features a selection of three-dimensional works in addition to two-dimensional artwork.
Our artists this year will include the following people. The list will be updated as applications are submitted.
Ron King ~ Stratomorphic Renderings
We see the world in layers of truthful representation, but what if our vision was opened to the shadows of the truth beyond the real?
My art is the unknown just beyond the familiar. I begin with a photograph and then go deep into the image itself to free the restless phantasmagorias within the still life. Through Stratomorphic Rendering, a digital media technique that involves painstakingly working through multiple artistically enhanced layers of each image, I coax out the heart of each piece to deliver a visual experience that offers more than reality.
Jennifer McGill ~ Oil
I am drawn to beauty, composition, light and color. My focus as an artist is to capture the world around me through painting. I scout locations, sketch, take pictures and plan for success. I meditate on what I call “the next”, which is visualization of desired results before painting. The complex interplay of elements: warm, cool, texture, smoothness, edge and shape are all employed to help tell a story. The success of my painting is defined by an intersection of how closely elements, subject matter and my vision align. My artistic purpose is to capture a story of beauty and culture of our time.
