Who are some of the artists being featured?

Etty Horowitz creates shimmering sculptures of aluminum and wire filled with visual movement and hard-edged commentary.

Will Johnson’s sculptures from found materials provide moments of whimsy and serenity, often evoking archetypal American imagery.

Katie Maratta creates miniature black & white Texas road trip landscapes measuring 1” by 48”.

Terrie Meider’s hand-drawn mandalas are images of beauty, peace and harmony.

Kenney Mencher paints enigmatic neo-noir tableaux that call upon the viewer to create stories surrounding each character grouping. (in love after I read that his paintings were taken down in a San Francisco gallery for controversial reasons.)

Inki Min blends abstract expressionism, realism and whimsy to create a deeply affecting vision.

Skip Noah paints dreams and dreamscapes of startling beauty and cosmic otherness.

Jamie Pink creates dazzling abstract mosaic pieces that take you into a world on the other side of the mirror.

Andrew Wick’s paintings pose emotionally charged figures against dark rural Texas landscapes producing a cool, enigmatic effect.

Camille Woods creates hauntingly surreal Texas landscapes that capture the vastness and beauty of our state.

Dahlia Woods captures the world with her bountiful color palette, painting scenes of Dallas, around Texas, Mexico, Italy and wherever she travels.

  1. Thanks Jennifer for such an amazing article. Do you know that essay writing is very important to improve the writing skills. Writing skills are very important for scholars in their profession. If they have a good grip on writing skills so they can write a fruitful material or they can improve their writing skills with the passage of times and by using these skills.

  2. If someone has to go abroad then the first thought came into their minds I don’t know how their culture, their norms is and even what should I need to be act like? These are some question that comes might in the mind of every person.

  3. The response of western governments to the Danish cartoon scandal has been rather lackluster. Few world leaders have expressed outright support for the cartoonists’ right to free speech, with most instead throwing in a lot of qualifiers about how we must be “sensitive”
