Opening Reception

These 3 artists, working in photography, encaustic and glass tiles – use basic elements to express unique visions. The
“My creations are the result of giving shape to a thought and/or feeling,” says Heidrun Morgan. “I don’t have a certain outcome in mind when I start – it is the process that fascinates me. Glass captures or transmits light as no other medium, and my glass pieces are one-of-a-kind art inspired by nature as well as by geometric shapes. For my mosaics I use glass, tiles, beads, wood, fused-glass components, and other found objects resulting in mixed media creations. Giving life to my ideas completes me.” Read more...

“Whether under a microscope, through a telescope or with the naked eye, epic landscapes of a questionable scale are a continuously fascinating subject of inspiration,” says Carol Flaitz. “I am beholden to a powerful visual world found in the natural landscape of all geologic forces.” Flaitz’s geologic images are abstracted into two-dimensional pencil designs on wood, and then submerged beneath layers of color, texture and glazes and encaustic (beeswax and resin) until a compelling landscape is born.
“My formal studies were not in photography but in Interior Design,” explains Nancy Faulds. “I worked in this field both on commercial and residential projects for 25 years, meanwhile gradually developing my eye and skills as a photographer. Over time my interests have shifted from landscapes and ‘found abstracts’ to the challenges of discovering beauty in spaces that at first seem ugly and decrepit.”

The show runs through March 8, 2020.
