Dorothy Coatsworth

When I was only 3 years old I had already decided I wanted to be an Artist, and I would paint animals.  I started using oils at 13 and in a few years I was painting portraits of horses for their owners.  I now do commissions of horses, cats, dogs, and sometimes landscapes.  I use Oil, Pastel, Colored Pencil, and Graphite.  I mix mediums frequently, and often experiment.  I compete in shows as often as I can, and recently WON First Place with a Graphite Portrait of a cat.






Richard Scully (In Memoriam)

Richard’s art career spanned over 45 years and began in New York City, where he studied both classical and contemporary art at the National Academy, The Brooklyn Museum Art School, the School of Visual Arts and The Arts Student’s League, NYC.  His efforts were to create a fusion of figurative themes and abstract composition.

Mike Herdering

Mike was born at 8:49 AM, with a No. 3A Folding Pocket Kodak, Model C camera in his hand and Microdol-X in his veins. At age 3 Mike disassembled Dad’s Ansco Cadet I to try to find the pictures. The Ansco never took another photo. Mike honed his panning skills, at age 16, trying to freeze the 200 MPH action of the Double A Fuel Altered “Panic!” at Irwindale Dragway.  Today, Mike enjoys exercising those finely honed panning skills, photographing fast moving clouds across the Colorado Plateau and the occasional hummingbird. Please, enjoy the view!

Marianne Galleon

My ceramic creations are inspired by the feel of the clay starting with the raw clay to the visual finished glazed piece.  My primary focus is functional pottery for everyday use.  I aspire to create pottery not for the shelf but as part of daily life.  My first love is making bowls.  I enjoy experimenting with combining glazes using wax resist and other design techniques.  I believe pottery should be picked up and held so you can feel each piece.  When you get the chance PLEASE feel free to handle my pottery.  ENJOY!!!
