We Love Local Art!
Each weekend we display works from a local artist. The artwork will be displayed in our greenhouse, where you can explore some of the finer things in life - art and horticulture! Prints may be available through the artists. Thank you to all the artists who have so kindly allowed us to display their creativity.
Suzette McIntyre, October 10-12
Suzette is a fine art photographer and artist. Her studio and gallery are located in historic downtown Windsor. She grew up in Colorado and Wyoming, studied fine art, then moved to Ohio to open a photography studio.
After successfully redefining the fine art of weddings and portraiture, Suzette packed up and returned to Colorado, opening a boardwalk gallery where a new concept in the visual arts is created and displayed. In her studio she is able to combine the techniques of her intensive studies in sculpture and oil painting with her profession as a fine art photographer.
Suzette has shown internationally and has received awards for her signature style, including Photographer of the Year, the PPO Visual Excellence Award, First Place and Best of Show trophies and a showing at the Epcot Center.
Amy Walton, October 17-19
Amy has always considered herself an artist, and creating is a driving force in her life. The subjects that inspire Amy to paint are quiet and everyday, most often found in nature. She is especially drawn to the beautiful western skies and landscapes of Colorado and Wyoming, as well as flowers and most recently old barns. Her mission is to take these simple subjects and through her mind's eye, bring them into an expressionist state of being. She often paints with a brush, but some pieces are done soley with a palette knife. Sometimes the pain is applied, sanded and many layers are built up. Other times the paint is so thick it has a life of it's own. The joy Amy gets from her work is equaled by knowing that someone else finds joy it in too.
We are still scheduling artists for 2014. Check back soon.
