Jocelyn Audette, painter:
Jocelyn Audette is in love with the west…its varied landscapes, its mountains, its coast, its skies, and its wildness. Immersed in art since childhood, she received her BFA from the University of Colorado in Boulder where her focus was abstract painting. But a love of nature and the land lead her back to painting nature, both en plein air and in the studio. She spent 35 years in Northern California and has traveled the world extensively, painting wherever she went. Now she’s happily settled with her two labs in the Seven Castles next to the Frying Pan river near Basalt, Colorado.
Jocelyn’s landscape painting has focused on the California wine country and coast, the mountains and rivers of Colorado, and the rocky canyons of the Southwest. Jocelyn loves animals and has participated in many exhibits with her dog paintings, including a solo exhibit named “Always Hopeful”. She continues to do paintings of dogs and other animals, as well as figurative drawings and paintings working from a live model. Her favorite mediums are oil, encaustic, and watercolor. Jocelyn’s work has been shown nationally and internationally.
Jocelyn’s work ranges from abstract to expressionistic interpretations of life. Her compositions and color are often dramatic, with intense color and interesting textures. Her goal is to capture the beauty, power, and light in the subject, whether it is a particular landscape, a tiny flower, an animal, or the human figure.
Cat Kaufman, mixed media:
Cat uses found objects, the rustier the better, to create pieces of mixed media that portray a narrative. Her pieces tell stories, portray emotion, or make a statement.
Every object has its own story to tell. Their areas of wear and tear, scrapes and deterioration portray more than just the object themselves if you take the time to look.
The histories and stories within the objects bring character to the whole. Cat works in assemblage, plaster, wire and paper masks and jewelry.
Hanya Popova Parker, painter:
I have inherited my bond with the land from my ancestors who have farmed for longer than collective memory. My grandparents' stories of life in Czarist Russia enriched my genetic ties. My immediate family of farmers and ranchers continued this tradition of planting, caring, tilling and bringing forth all that sustains life for the body and for the spirit. Nature is my inspiration, my solace, and my adventure. Good fortune has allowed me to experience the world's diversity through travel across the seas, hiking, backpacking, climbing mountains and seeking out the wilderness and nature. For me it was inevitable that as a painter, the power of these images would influence my hand and appear on my canvas.
This connection with nature is one reason I have chosen to explore the land, wind and weather by painting en plein air ("open air"). I paint on location, then return to the studio to continue my investigation of the world expressed upon my canvas. Painting in images, covering them up, perhaps revealing them again, this is all part of the evolutionary process that appears on my canvas.
