Kimberly Long creates whimsical and imaginative homes and objects for Gnooks. Justin Lodge paints natural scenes within scientific or spiritual concepts and patterns. Tara Robinson paintings provide the viewer with an intimate encounter of a bird often surrounded by bright florals, communicating both personality and a sense of enchantment.

Phil Coleman Photo: Wonder of Wings

I photograph many things - people and places, landscapes and animals, flowers and abstracts - but for this exhibit, I concentrate on some of nature’s creations that can fly, most in the air but a few, like penguins, in the ocean. Constrained as we are by gravity, we can only imagine how amazing the 3-dimensional world must be for birds and “bugs.” With the photographs that I present here, I want to show the wonderful diversity of these natural “airplanes,” small to large, drab to outrageously colorful, rather ugly to quite handsome. Some are shown in flight, some at rest. All see and navigate the world in ways that we can only approximate with our limited technology.

Her selection of petite paintings she chose for this show is called, "On a Winter's Night." Henna artist Mehndi in the Morning will be offering all natural, temporary body art tattoos. Plant artist Jennifer Moreland will have her elaborate succulent arrangements and kokedama moss art on display, including one entitled "Sempervivum Ampersand."

Young Voices Traveling Show

It's the time of year when young artists take over! Voices and their sister gallery, The Hold Studio, are hosting their 2nd annual "Young Voices Traveling Show" where every child is welcome to display their work. The last several months have been spent recruiting these young voices and December 20th's art walk is the first of two receptions. Each artist is local and under the age of 18. Media ranges from ceramics to watercolor, photography to sculpture, and everything in between. Be sure to look for the next reception in January at The Hold Studio!
