Most of Jim Riggins’ ideas come from thoughts he has while sleeping or going about his daily business. He imagines his images in a specific medium or color like black and white, steel or wool, depending on the size of the work. Jim works on multiple projects simultaneously often making unintended discoveries along the way.

Scott Hawn works in ceramics for its strength and tactile qualities. Clay’s ability to be manipulated, both in form and texture, makes it a perfect medium for exploring the theme of aging, experience and our own mortality. Some of his subjects are beautiful, others less so. He seeks to inspire those who see his work to look differently at the world around them, and discover beauty in unusual places. Scott has a BA in Fine Arts with an emphasis on printmaking from the University of Northern Colorado, and has studied at Croyden College of Design, SFAI, and CSU. He has more than 20 years experience teaching art at the middle school, high school and college levels.
