Hummingbird 1Sara Lawrence Skillman

Growing up on scenic Chautauqua Lake in western New York State, I discovered early on the wonder and beauty of the natural world. As an artist, I strive to capture the magic that is in the wilderness.

She calls her artwork Natural Glimpses and she tries to represent all the colors, contrasts, emotions and spontaneous moments woven into the web of life in her pen-ink-watercolor studies and embroidered landscapes.

Puzzle - by Bethany Bjork

Bethany Bjork

Puzzle is from a body of work that addresses the idea of gender roles. I use the physical representation of a corset to embody what I envision as the ideological constraints contained within socially and/or culturally constructed gender roles. The corset, a very private, feminine object, is constructed from unexpected, industrial, and perhaps masculine materials illustrating what I see as an inevitable dichotomy.

Let’s talk about representing complex issues using art!
