Rick Rogers: Consonance and Dissonance

As an adult, I remember with a touch of amusement, the bitterness of not finding finger paints in my stocking on Christmas morning.  Who could really blame Santa? But the simple joy of playing with those squishy pigments at grade school is a sensation that remains vivid for me today. Art and design have always …

Steve Ricketts: The Many faces of Grief

I first became interested in photography in 2010 as a pre-retirement project and as a homage to my Dad, and I discovered that I enjoyed it immensely. I find myself drawn to photography because of its ability to tell a story without the use of words. One can write at length about a topic but …

James Gaa

People reveal themselves through the things they make. I interpret the urban landscape, the place most of us live and work – including streets and alleys, buildings and their architectural features, machines, and signs. In documenting aspects of the designed and built environment, I construct something new that reveals a dimension that is hidden from …
