JERI LEDBETTER

Jeri Ledbetter is inspired and compelled both by nature's oddities and man-made structures. She is enthralled with the contrast of, and interplay between, industry and nature. Ledbetter lets her paint and pencil decide the course of her piece; she does not want the involuntary and free hand to be controlled by a plan and scheme. Through her work she embraces the accidental, the surprises.

KIMBER BERRY

Through my newest series of paintings Plastic Gardens I create a dialogue of the human condition and raise important social questions as to how we live with nature. As we encroach further and further into natural environments that were once untouched and eliminating them.

JIM POLAN

Jim Polan loves stories. He tells them, he paints them. Sometimes the title precedes the paint, but sometimes it's the other way around. In most works, the title is intended to be a compositional element. The works, more or less, are edited action paintings with narratives. Despite his three degrees, Polan still claims that whatever he learned of art, he learned in his father's studio.

MARLIES HOEVERS

I want to show people the beauty of cement, concrete, saw dust, cardboard and other ordinary materials you would usually walk past and never really pay attention to. The materials by themselves are maybe not that special, but it's the action and reaction of the concrete and the materials, and their blending together, that makes it beautiful.
