Watercolor has a way of reaching into the soul of artist Audrey Anderson, inspiring deep creativity. Her light-infused watercolors are inspired by places dear to her. Audrey also works with fabric art collages from fragments normally discarded.
Using strong design and rich color in watercolors and acrylics, Peggy paints the scenes of Crested Butte often overlooked by others, finding beauty in unusual places, inspiring people to take a closer peek into their surroundings.
Laura spontaneously integrates words and creatures onto finely crafted studio ceramics, drawings and paintings. Strikingly original images with lush, verdant pattern and repetition allow the meditative qualities of color and form to evolve with each piece.
Suzanne makes unique and treasured watercolors of memorable adventures in the mountain paradise of Crested Butte – brilliant with wildflowers and forests printed on easy to pack, ready to hang metal prints.
“Eclectic creativity is the breath of life!” exclaims Mary. Mary works in all mediums – acrylics, watercolor and Precious Metal Clay being some of her favorites. Here she shows handmade jewelry, small acrylic paintings and silk scarves.
Formally trained, Christina Stillwaggon focused on glass flameworking in her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Alfred University. Here she shows an assortment of finely crafted stained-glass hangings.
