Brad Loving

"I have been a full time artist for the past 25 years. My primary focus has been ceramics. But along the way I became interested in collecting found and discarded objects. After years of trips to flea markets, thrift stores, salvage yards, etc., my next steps became clear. My current work incorporates these “treasures” into artistic compositions. I want these pieces to tell a story. These stories are open to interpretation and invite personal connections. My assemblages include memorabilia, found objects, paper, wood, metal, and clay adornments."

Matthew Clark

Matthew has appreciation for the qualities of both detail and storyline in art, and admires when the surrealistic and realistic worlds join forces. This is apparent in Matthew’s work. The characters often seem surreal -- however maintain a certain bond necessary and comforting to life’s situations, making his pieces easy to identify with. The layers of emotion behind each image in all of Matthew’s work are both touching and relatable. The way he can evoke a mood within his paintings is unique to his style. It is easy to submerge one’s imagination deep into the details of the adventures of his characters and their environments.

Amanda Vela

Denver-based visionary artist Spirit Pervades Matter (Amanda Vela) creates original art as an expression of her relationship to a power greater than herself in order to impart a sense of hope, peace, and joy within the viewer. Her body of work includes free-hand ink and color pencil drawings, watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings, as well as mixed media creations, all inspired by meditation, and meant to be uplifting through the use of vibrant colors and harmonious patterns.
