Catherine Courtenaye
's work is based on her exploration of 19th century penmanship. She states that "vestiges of elementary mark-making (alphabets, animals, equations) serve as counterpoints to my looser treatment of line, edge and space. These paintings navigate between the rigors of perfect lines from the past and my own
imperfect brushes, loaded with sensuous color."

Dale Livezey's paintings convey the colors and phenomenon of early morning or late afternoon light on the seemingly endless landscape in his native Montana.

Randall Shiroma is a sculptor who works in stone and terrazzo, creating sculpture that evokes the elements and forms of nature. His polished and patinated concrete sculptures seem to reflect the mountains, sky and water, creating their own sense of presence, revealing his search for the nature of being.
