Award winning artist, JK Thorsen, has her own style. Without cliché, her details and humanity are personal yet lasting. Not prone to pretension nor over-production, she continues to incorporate ecologically responsible materials and practices in her work.
Thorsen reminds us of play and presence while responding to our times with a whisper. Whether producing on-site - or in her unheated workshop - risk and growth are key, while relationships and awareness remain foremost.

Ann O'Hara - Pastels for Small Spaces (TAG)
Pastels are very forgiving... important in paintings and life. Spontaneity, bold, vibrant, each of Ann's pastels has a story. From the rolling hills to the concentrated look of a little girl, Ann wants to convey more than just painting but a connection to the subject.
Cody Wheelock - Inter-Connection: Art and Nature
Cody's series of work is about making connections with the landscape. By capturing the personality and feel of the place, he has the hope that viewers make their own connections to the pieces via past experiences and memories.
