Artist's Statement, Terry Holleman
"I use simple materials, black conté crayon and white gesso on large panels to create pictures of people having fun with vernacular music. The scenes are fabricated from many photographs of real musicians and audiences so I consider them a semi-documentary and I take considerable measures to ensure the visual accuracy of individuals and locations.
It is important to me to convey the joy experienced by the participants in these situations. I truly believe that these types of events I portray are therapeutic".
Artist's Statement, Liza Pike
I’ve been making baskets for the last several years, taking workshops from contemporary basketmakers and continuing to learn the craft. I’m intrigued with sculptural basketry and inspired by the artists who make them. So far I’ve worked with paper, waxed cotton, waxed linen, leather, copper wire, sweet grass, horsehair and cedar. Each basket seems to take on a life of it’s own.
Artist's Statement, Carole Watanabe
Watanabe's past (leading to this romantic present), includes establishing the first nationally recognized Gallery for the Fiber Arts in San Francisco; founding the Apprentice Alliance (a non-profit organization dedicated to placing apprentices with masters in all fields of endeavor); and a life-long commitment to creating supportive communities that nourish the wild art spirit in all of us. Her tapestries, sculptural handmade paper works and paintings hang in private collections, hotels, banks, hospitals and corporate offices across the country.
Since completing a Bachelor of Fine Arts at CCAC in Oakland, she has studied indigenous weaving with Guatemalan natives on the shores of Attitlan, traditional Japanese papermaking in a paper village in Aichi-ken, Japan and in the last 14 years, painting with masters in the magical countryside of southern France.
Currently, she is living and teaching the concept of "life as an art form" during the winters at her art school in Sebastopol, CA known as Art Heaven, and summers in the French fauvist village of Collioure where she paints and sells her work in her own gallery L'Art Vivant.
