Stops 306 - 312

Open on November 11-12 & 18-19 from 11am-6pm.

Lyle Adair has won awards across the state of Texas and beyond with his copper sculptures. He has been creating art since 1999 and enjoys the malleability of copper along with the myriad patinas created by the array of chemical compounds he uses.

 Pete Holland  works primarily with photographic prints from digital media.  He likes to shoot in black & white, especially infrared.  Another favorite technique  is high dynamic range photography.  His subjects are typically just a little bit left of center.  He tries to draw the viewer with a slightly obtuse statement.

 Connie Miller has been exploring cold wax medium this year. Combined with oil paint, the effect can be quite intense or very muted as she layers color and wax, digs into it to unearth layers. She works exclusively with a palette knife, intuitively exploring Abstract Expressionism, bringing a looseness that invites the viewer to see beyond the paint.

 Clara Newby  has been creating beauty on canvass and other media since her childhood.  It is her gift.  It is also her gift to Austin and others. She continues to paint and produce art in her studio in South Austin, always ready to experiment with a new process.

Jan Pomeroy has been an artist for over 35 years, most of that time in New Mexico. She arrived in Austin, Texas in 2012 to pursue a place that would be a new horizon for her art. She has apprenticed & studied with various artists to learn fiber techniques, cloisonne enameling, wood carving, mixed media and more. The use of non-traditional techniques such as textured backgrounds, collaging, gold leafing, photo transfers and use of found objects is seen in her mixed media paintings. Textures and color and following the leading of God in her life is what motivates her in the creative pursuits in art.  

David Parsons  has been photographing Austin and Central Texas for over a decade. His images capture beautiful, exciting, contemplative and awe-worthy moments in time with a desire to inspire an appreciation for the beautiful world we live in. With a combination of raw and artfully edited photographs, his gallery is a pleasure to behold. In addition to scenic photography, David is a portrait photographer and welcomes portrait sessions.

 Kali Parsons’ work is inspired by whimsy, delight, and current events. As part of a daily practice she captures these moments using a wide range of media including acrylic, watercolor, ink, and collage. Lucky for her she’s surrounded by the comedy troupe that is her husband, two sons, one dog, three cats, and seven chickens, as well a world filled with wonder, magic, and challenge. She hopes to bring joy and provoke deep thought with her work and frequently sells her art to fundraise for organizations close to her heart. Her blog and other information can be found at http://www.kaliparsons.com.

Jill Robinson carves and paints award-winning fine gourd art and handwoven baskets. Texture, color and design, whether contemporary or traditional, inspire her creativity.

 Marcy Ann Villafaña, working in a variety of mediums, including charcoal, conté, paper, a variety of paint types, photography, and graphic design, Villafaña has been exhibiting and selling her art since the late 80's.
