Becca Bellamy

About the Artist

Bellamy Head shotIn my work, I explore the contained space created by man-made structures, particularly the more uncelebrated places. I am inspired by the interplay of interior and exterior space, under a bridge for example, and the way light fills and frames that experience. I work primarily in oils, but have been switching back and forth between painting and drawing recently - the different mediums tend to inform one another.

About the Artist

Dunbar In Studio 1My work emerges through a process that balances spontaneity and control. I work with resin and heat. Resin lends itself to the buildup of layers, capturing traces of time, passage and transformation.

Fields HeadshotThese bold colors and angular shapes seem to have no place in the natural landscape. But settled into a cozy frame they represent a compromise and treaty between anxious eyes and a serene and knowing terrain.

John Geci

About the Artist

Geci workingGlass is often described as a super-cooled liquid, but I prefer to think of it as static motion. I try to design pieces that retain the organic character of their molten state. Using primarily transparent colors and a few well-placed stripes, my pieces highlight the material’s transparency, fluidity and potential for brilliant coloration.

Joe Grant

About the Artist

Grant WorkingEmbracing the myriad relationships between science, nature, and art allows sculptures to emerge.  Science is creative but the language is limiting. Art has a wider vocabulary with which to interpret nature, one that can employ the subjective experience. There is room for mysticism, transcendence, intuition, hybridization, feeling and emotion in art.

Leigh Suggs

About the Artist

Suggs Headshot LSUnderstanding how to categorize my work is as complicated as trying to categorize myself as an artist—something that I think about constantly.  Although I use various mediums and techniques that can be associated with sculpture or painting/drawing, I think more often than not, I find myself using processes that are deeply rooted in craft.  The combination of skill, labor, execution, inspiration, vision, and intuition are qualities that define craft, and all of which are present in my work.  I am connected to the tradition of making with the hand, although what I make and the way that I use tools and treat surface is unconventional and contemporary.

Laura Wood

About the Artist

woodMy interest in body as site began with self-expression through dance and performative arts. The human form, as a result, offers continual inspiration in how I create jewelry. Though my work is sculpturally autonomous, it is intended to have a direct relationship to the body, as another dynamic canvas through which to facilitate tactile transformation while pushing the line into three dimensions. Exploration of techniques and the lineage of jewelry history inspire me to challenge my work to evolve alongside new technologies and processes.
