Based in Los Angeles for the last decade, Brett is a classically trained oil painter who has travelled down many roads in life. He captures those emotions navigating you from his hometown in the Northeast to his current home here in SoCal. Drawn to the ethereal qualities that nature provides, Brett translates that through light bringing a sense of hope, curiosity, adventure and a bit of mystery in his work. Keep traveling down those roads in front of you to discover all the adventures waiting out there, over the hill, around the bend, where the light is coming from. .
All of Vokert's work is based on historical works of art to which he adds a contemporary social or political twist. LUST is based on Susanna and the Elders by Andre Vaccaro (1604-1670) which depicts the biblical episode of Susanna, a young married woman preparing to take a bath as she is watched by two elderly judges who desire her. After the men falsely accuse her of adultery, Daniel steps in to prevent her execution and interrogated each man separately. When asked under which tree Susanna had committed adultery, they named very different kinds of trees – one saying a mastic tree and one saying a live oak. Daniel exposed the elders for bearing false witness and Susanna was freed and the Elders condemned.

Sally's work is a unique blend of textiles, painting and collage. She uses iconography as the language of her work. Using mythical, heroic and historic symbols, she creates a stylized image of the subject. There is humor and pathos in the motifs that surround the image. Her love of beautiful fabrics, intense color and luscious texture is evident in her icons. The great mythologies of the world give the pieces a rich vocabulary.

Sheila Daube is an abstract expressionist painter, best known for artworks in dark, rich tones steeped in mythology, pop culture and wit. Her sensuous surfaces and jewel tone colors invite the viewer in to experience the delight of the world as she sees it.
Ashlie Benton's evocative paintings deploy a unique vocabulary of visual forms. Horses and hands. Coyotes and crowns. Mysterious geometric symbols, suggestive traces of text, and expressive fragments of human anatomy. Benton's work is both emotionally mysterious and physically seductive. In doing so, she shows up how surprising juxtapositions can point to new, unexpected meanings.
Humans have been drawing pictures even before learning to write. Drawing is the basis of all visual arts. Garcia's drawings are not pre-cursors to paintings but rather observations...a moment in time, captured at the height of the plant’s life, before it is gone.
Walther’s layered abstracts explore how we balance our connection to the digital world with our connection to our inner selves and to nature. Her work is intended to take us on contemplative journeys of sorts by highlighting these realms.
Using printed material from design magazines, Hunter cuts and arranges shapes to make studies for paintings. This process allows for experimentation with structure and color before beginning to paint. Her work is about transformation and how things go together. Meaning and content develop with the brushwork, the energy, the relationship of colors and allowing the process to change and evolve. Structure, texture and color harmony are integral to her work.
Hunter's work is included in several corporate collections including Sterling Drug, Chugai-Upjohn, Ernst and Young, Satellite Health Care of Mountain View, Ca., and the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa. One of her tapestries was included in a show entitled “Significant Colorado Women Artists of the 20th Century” which traveled around the western region and also to the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
