Ralph Broussard, digital collage:
I spent the first 27 years of my life on Bayou Lafourche in South Louisiana. Surrounded by swamp & marsh, the memories of my early years there have always been a driving force in my work. This coastal area was alway thriving with wildlife. However, much damage has been inflicted on this beautiful area through the decades. The oil industry has taken its toll on the grassy wet lands where many sea creatures come to spawn.Hurricanes and tornados interrupt and devastate lives there, beyond belief. Still, the Cajun people celebrate life through strong religious beliefs, parish festivals, unique music and lavish parades such as Mardi Gras. My intent in my work is that you see this struggle of beauty, magic and destruction.
Virginia Harrison, sculptor:
I was raised at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, where the history and lore of the gold and silver mines gave me an early understanding of metal. Over the past 17 years, I've been refining a technique combining the ignitive force of casting with the delicacy of weaving to create woven bronze sculptures that evoke both literal and emotional interpretation. Sometimes the shapes that emerge are extremely deliberate, while other times they evolve during the process of creating them. Combining bronze casting and weaving connects me to some of the most ancient human activities, and offers a way of lending grace and movement to bronze
Pamela Heck, painter:
Regardless of style, there is a unifying air of mystery in my work that invites questions and personal interpretation. This “interactive imagining” enriches the viewing experience by creating interplay between the artist, the painting and the observer. Like all artists who actually make art, instead of dreaming about it, I have had to face my fears and doubts while forging ahead. Each piece I create is the best one I can do between two moments…the moment it is conceived and the moment it is completed. Each is my guide to the next piece and the next. All are personal and, I think, distinctive. No one else could have produced them.
