STEPHEN WILSON



Stephen is anything but traditional. The medium used for his pieces is predominantly fabric and thread, combined with sculptural 3D printing, laser engraving, and painting. When you examine one of his pieces closely you will notice that each line and element is created with thread on top of luxurious fabrics.

KELSEY IRVIN



Irvin is driven to bring new life to objects that may otherwise be lost and deteriorated in time. The challenge she seeks is to maintain a balance between working with such old objects and recreating them in a contemporary artwork that holds the test of time.

ROBERT MARS



Robert Mars’ artwork chronicles an evolving fascination with the Golden Age of American popular culture and celebrates the icons of the 1950’s and 1960’s.

JEN PACK



Jen Pack’s work embodies a space in the seam between painting and sculpture, yet is made of fabric. It is made of small distinct pieces, reordered and fused, which become a new whole based on their orientation to each other; yet, each small bit still retains its integrity.

ABOUT VESELA BAKER
 

Acrylic and watercolor are the media of choice for me because of the fast drying process. I continue to learn every day, and my work constantly evolves, as I always have the desire to see things a bit different and in a new way. I like switching between wood and paper, watercolor and acrylic. Because I spend so much time in the studio, that helps me to not get stuck. It forces me to see things from a different perspective and breaks my thought process so I can take a fresh approach. Once in a while, I feel like I have to have some more control and need to slow down so I paint realism. 

Vesela is a full time artist working with her husband, Curt from their studio in Chattanooga, TN. She received training in art education at The University of Sofia,Bulgaria.

ABOUT ALAN ALLDREDGE



Alan Alldredge investigates processual abstraction with flowing pathways of texture, reflection and illusion. Taking cues from the natural world, he aims to reinforce the belief that beauty is part of the sacred through his work. Alldredge’s “cast monoprints” force him to surrender to the process. Through the work’s meditative visuals and complex origins, he seeks to create a transcendent sacred object for the viewer.

VOL. 10.02.2018 | JAMIE KIRKLAND

ABOUT JAMIE KIRKLAND



Jamie Kirkland seeks to evoke a sense of limitless space, of expansiveness, stillness and calm in her paintings. Her work has been described as “minimalist abstract landscape.” Kirkland desires to speak to the viewer through simplicity and by reducing the landscape to shapes and forms, much the same way a poet expresses an idea in three lines of haiku. And just as traditional haiku contains a kigo, or season reference, her paintings reference seasonality with an economy of expression that is almost always atmospheric.
