Al Brown

The photographic interests of Al Brown, though somewhat eclectic, tend predominately toward nature photography in particular the Southwest landscape. Recently, he has developed an interest in expressive and impressionistic imagery. There are untold numbers of beautiful, fantastic and unusual sites throughout the Southwest landscape. Unfortunately, many will never have the opportunity to personally experience these wonders first hand. Al derives a sense of satisfaction when he can capture and present to that audience a printed image of these natural marvels that elicits a spontaneous “WOW.”

Sue Horine

Sue Horine has been creating her bead embroidered art jewelry since 2005. Primarily self-taught, her beaded jewelry is becoming easily recognizable as her style has developed from her love of nature and the scenic stone cabochons she incorporates in her work. Her appreciation of the traditional Native American flat beadwork is apparent in Sue’s work. Using a needle and thread, she stitches each tiny glass bead to a backing to make her one-of-a-kind works of wearable art.

Lydia Dillon-Sutton

For almost 40 years, using the ancient process of batik, Lydia has painted with hot bee’s wax and procion dye baths. Beginning with woven cloth, she marries the materials using line, color and moving forms, layer upon layer, into substance. It is a substance that conveys her understanding of the Native American Community. Through batiks Lydia strives to represent her experiences and interaction with the Native American community. ”If I can open more eyes to viewing our human family with respect and honor; I’ve been successful” states the artist.

Lyn & Ken Mikell

In simple terms, Ken does the throwing and Lyn does the painting. Together they collaborate on their amazing and colorful raku designs. Ken does most of the wheel throwing, while Lyn creates the surface designs, inspired by the Arizona landscape they both love. After the firing process is finished, Lyn paints each unique vessel, hence the name, “painted raku”. Her “canvas” is the ceramic surface. Talented in many ways, Lyn and Ken balance their ceramic art with their music; Ken plays string instruments with Lyn accompanying him on the harp.
