Ron Lutz has been involved in photography for over 40 years. His photographic
journey includes photographing school sports using a 4x5 vintage press camera,
creative photographic experiments, many years of photography and darkroom work for
a worldwide corporation, black and white fine art work, digital media, and full circle back
to the methods of the early photographers.
Carole Smith’s work is inspired in part by the beauty of nature and the unique
qualities of watercolors. She says the beauty we see in nature is transient, ever
changing as the light moves across trees, across a field. Trying to capture that on a still
picture plane can be eluding. Watercolor is a medium so well suited to play in the way
the paint and water react on the surface of the paper, simpatico, if you will. This quiet
medium, as opposed to acrylic or oil canvases’ screaming color, reflects the subtle
changes ever present in the landscapes around us.
Katrinka Booth's work and process are summed up in this Roman Payne quote.
Booth expresses the elation and freedom she experiences stitching these detailed and
elaborate pieces. She hopes the viewer is transported to another place where time is
suspended and you can be "free in your wildness."
