BILLY SOLITARIO

BILLY SOLITARIO

Solitario, who refers to himself as a “classic realist”, explores various subjects, including landscapes, portraits and still life paintings. As a landscape painter, Solitario says he is most inspired by cumulonimbus clouds, the Gulf Coast and the Mississippi River. He emphasizes the magnitude of the sky and clouds above small slivers of land below. Billy Solitario’s still life works honor the rainbow of colors found in the crabs, oysters, and crawfish native to the Gulf Coast. Billy paints with a “wet on wet” technique and uses value to bring his signature depth to the pieces.

CLAUDIA MORIARTY

CLAUDIA MORIARTY

Color, pattern & light are a constant inspiration to me. I interpret & express what I see; not copy. My style would be called American Impressionism which allows the viewer to participate. Plein air is how I love to paint as it gives me a special relationship with atmosphere, color, light and the environment. Plein air offers the challenge the quick changing light which fascinates me. Capturing the natural beauty of nature in the changing light is a fun and rewarding challenge. It is a joy to capture scenes and nature with a sense of spontaneity. Over 90% of my work is plein air. Most recent awards/achievements: Invited artist to Wekiva Invitational Paint Out 2017. Award of Merit Light and Space Gallery Show “Seascapes” .Honorable Mention at Quick Draw “Shirmp

DAWN WILKINS

DAWN WILKINS

Nature is my parter in design. I print directly from natural subjects, pulling my impressions from leaves, ferns, fish, flowers and natural subjects. I preserve my impressions, called nature prints, on silk screens and use them to create my compositions, both in my mixed media prints on paper and in my textile designs. By adding drawings to my work on paper I create unique contemporary botanical prints and nature studies. As a long time Key West artist, much of my work is inspired by the flora and fauna of the Keys as well as from travels to beautiful places on the planet. My love for the world around me fuels my passion as a naturalist and inspires my work as an artist.

DERRICK CROSSLAND

DERRICK CROSSLAND

I'm a professional artist working the national art circuit. A large amount of my work is commission, several of which are large pieces. And I do have the ability to create sculpture of large scale. Most of my work can also be cast for outside sculptures. Description: Predominantly using Russian hardwoods, I carve ribbon like sculptures that optically appear to be bent or folded. Each piece juxtaposes the fluidity of the subject matter against the grain of the wood. The complexity of the underlying engineering and design is concealed by the drama of the piece.

ELIOT PRESCOTT

ELIOT PRESCOTT

I create my artwork skillfully and meticulously using very high quality tools and material. Each piece is an original and inspired by my own spiritual growth which is why I have named each piece with a spiritual emphasis. The design in the grinds is where my passion manifests, I love experimenting with the different layers and directions each piece takes. Then as I step back and I see this holographic illusion moving before my eyes as I change positions while viewing it. Adding color to each piece changes the dimension and depth and allows the owner to customize their very own color palette to match their personal taste, or I can just go crazy with my own colorful ideas. Then to play with lighting is a whole other magnitude, watching the light dance upon each grind or changing the colors gradually to watch the piece come alive, so much fun! The artwork is ideal for both indoor and outdoor settings and the natural light changing throughout the day adds a unique quality like no other.

JEANE LARANCE

JEANE LARANCE

My brother gave me my first camera when I was nine or ten years of age, he bought it in Europe. I don’t remember much about the camera itself it was the pictures that I couldn’t get enough of and that still holds true. I love photography no matter if it’s moving or still. In college I studied both still and moving images and finally ended up with a Masters Degree in both cinematography and photography. For several years I was an event shooter in Santa Fe, NM, covering art events and making promotional videos for artists in that area. At that same time I photographed behind the scenes on movie sets for the Disney Summer Workshops and other filmmakers. In between these projects I flew to Haiti with a team of Haitian doctors to document their efforts—they used my images for fundraising to build a hospital in a rural area, that project lasted almost fifteen years.

JONATHAN BROWN ART AND DESIGN, LLC

JONATHAN BROWN ART AND DESIGN, LLC

Working with community stakeholders and collaborating with a diverse population of clients and designers over 27 years, has broadened my view of art in general, allowing me to grow immensely in my own artistic discipline. My hand-blended, detailed grouting allows me to tie multiple glass hues together while feathering color transitions and shading in seamless form. Unlike the growing number of public artists outsourcing the fabrication of their installations, I personally handle all materials and oversee all projects from inception to completion. My indoor and outdoor works continue to stand up to the elements in numerous industrial, commercial, retail, and residential settings, requiring minimal to no maintenance along the way.

KATHRYN VAN AERNUM

KATHRYN VAN AERNUM

Shooting pictures for 30 years, Kathryn honed her film and darkroom skills working as a darkroom apprentice in Virginia. She now shoots only digital and produces both color and black and white images. She continues her quest to create black and white images with the nuance of film. Her signature, “Photographics” series, employes techniques to render her images with a silk-screen like quality with highly saturated color. Subjects from the mundane to the sublime capture her imagination and she continues to cultivate a sense of spaciousness in her photography. The elements of design: harmony, balance and rhythm present themselves to Kathryn almost subconsciously, allowing her to capture a moment that transports the viewer into their own minds, memories and dreams.

The stainless steel squares used to sculpt the figures represent the intellectual ability, emotional range, physical strength and spiritual dimension of each individual. The shadows these sculptures cast on the floors or walls of the spaces they inhabit imbue each piece with a secondary layer of beauty, abstraction and mystery. My sculptures have been exhibited worldwide at various art galleries, art fairs, art centers, museums, hotels and even churches.

After my graduate work on a full scholarship at Cranbrook Academy of Art I received my MFA and leveraged it into a teaching position at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, where I loved teaching and the freedom to do my own work. During my teaching position my work evolved from contemplative objects to interactive spaces and poetic environments. The primary purpose has been to create objects and spaces that humanize our social environments and enrich our community experience. My intention in creating these interactive structures is to allow people the opportunity to become more engaged in their various environments and more mindful of the energies around them finding an artistic expression that respects the community
