Thomas Egan – Photography

The Red Lake

 Tom’s photographs take the viewer to a surreal world of mirror images. A place of brilliant color and strange perspectives. The goal of the artist is to capture a familiar place and make it unfamiliar, to take you on journey to a place you travel through everyday, but have never seen before.

 

 

Roy Wright – Photography

Wright_Roy_104fp_2015Roy Wright celebrates old city imagery, rythmic movement and still life, fusing the discipline of his many years as an architectural photographer with his love of pop art. Borrowing psychedelic imagery, colors, technique, and screen print from different periods of the pop art of the 60’s, he creates compositions melding simple and complex, solid and void patterns, lines and an element of elegant fun.

Rich Roberts – Fused Glass

Rich Roberts is a self-taught glass artist.  With no formal training, he has spent the last 18 months transitioning from copper foil & mosaic towards kiln-formed glass creations. He might spend 5 minutes to envision a design and all week working out all the technical details, as fused glass has numerous material constraints! His work varies from satire to realism.

Don Sichler – Photography

Cold Water

 

People often look at things without really seeing. Don’s photos challenge his viewers to drop their notions about how they expect the human body to look and to see the human form in a new asexual way.
