Will Gibson

I am old enough to have had my first experiences with photography at a time when black and white imagery was still a dominant form. Ansel Adams, the Westons and others were at the peak of their careers and Life and The Saturday Evening Post magazines were touchstones for the cultural life of the country. Once I started printing my own work in 1968, I was hooked. I have ever since been fascinated with the possibilities inherent in a medium that deals with time, light, shape and form. It allows me a way to see in new and different ways. It has always been a way for me to make sense of the world, and to focus on things and ideas of substance.

Victor Roman

Victor Roman's passion for expressing himself through art motivates him to sketch and paint whenever he can. Sometimes, you can find him sketching people on the train or in a casino but on most days, you will find him painting in his studio until the early hours of the morning. Painting in the night after work, shows dedication and after 3 years of study at Palomar College, Victor's talent has grown exponentially.

The emotions that his art evoke have developed in complexity and because of this, the viewer must think twice about what they are looking at to figure out their own interpretation of his art. Art pieces include depictions of artillery, child soldiers and portraits of mankind in various states of mind.

The art is masterfully painted on wood, a feat accomplished by few artists. As this artist's girlfriend and in my experiences as his peer in art classes, I've witnessed Victor draw from life with swift and graceful movements. I have also seen him make a gun drawn on a piece of paper exciting and to witness this phenomenon for yourself just stop by Studio #5. He will be happy to turn up the bass for you on his sound system or play a timeless record on our record player.

Julie Arroyo

"My love of art began in Philadelphia when my folks enrolled me in a summer class at the age of 6. We werebeing taught about oil pastels that year. I remember feeling very inadequate (big word for a 6 year old, huh?) since I was so young and inexperienced, but I absolutely loved playing with the pastels. I went into my own world, ignoring what the teacher was showing us, and just made picture after picture until my parents picked me up at the end of class.."

Martita

Art has always been part of who I am. I have been creating ever since I can remember. From coloring within the lines as a child to beyond the lines as a grown up. I am free and bound at the same time as an artist. I do not take it lightly to say that I am creative being, we all are. I just am so compelled to create with my hands. I have much to share from within. I move about within my mediums and they are jewelry, painting, and photographing.

sally reis vogt

German born architect Mies van der Rohe once said "God is in the details." As a photographer and designer, I am in constant search of those visual moments and details which, for me, give meaning and excitement to the everyday world.

Seeing, rather than photographing, is my passion and I enjoy these moments with or without a camera. I make these observations whether sitting in a room, riding in a car or exploring the great outdoors. I do it consciously and unconsciously. My greatest joy comes from the visual stimulation which exists as much in the mundane as in the grand. It is in the nuances of light, pattern, color, gesture, proportion, form and expression that I find my entertainment. The camera is merely a tool to record and share these moments with others.

Daniel Nougier

Having squandered the first 40 years of my career life as an engineer, I am pleased to now have the opportunity to devote my time to the challenges of photography. While I've also been photographing for over 40 years, I feel there is always more to learn. I embrace the endless creative controls offered by the modern digital darkroom.

However I also enjoy the satisfaction derived from producing a quality platinum/palladium print. My goal is to present photographs with a unique point of view that will allow the viewer to experience the scene as I experienced it. Not necessarily how it looked, but rather how it felt. One of my favorite quotes by Ansel Adams is "There are two people in every photograph: the photographer and the viewer." Creating an image that can equally engage both the photographer and the viewer is the true magic of photography.

Gloria Favela-Rocha

I have been drawing and painting for most of her life. In the early 1990's, I discovered a love for oil painting in the early 90's. It was through the exploration of this new passion that I met a local mural artist who began teaching me the technique and art of mural painting. I then began a three year apprenticeship under this artists before moving to start my own business.

As I began painting murals and establishing my business, I also began studying Interior Design. Through this learning and background, I was able to continue to expand and perfect my art. Since then, I have painted murals all over Southern California, both in residential and commercial spaces. It is through my work and through art that I find purpose and meaning. Being able to share that with others is why I love what I do.

Roberta Nieto

Roberta Nieto is a self-taught Sculptor and Painter. Born in New Mexico and living now in San Diego County.

Her most recent works are inspired by the mystery of petroglyphs and pictographs of the ancient people, specifically the symbols of the Anasazi. Roberta is fascinated by the history and the messages hidden in these petroglyphs. She has brought these characters to life in a new form with her perception of their vitality. They can lure you into the mystery of their stories through their eyes with the unique texture and vibrant colors. As an artist, she is channeling messages to you from the ancient history of the American Indians. The energy that radiates in these ancient drawings can be experienced by viewing these paintings and sculptures by Roberta Nieto.

"There's no right answer to your interpretation of art; I wants you to feel something. Allow yourself to be captivated by image, colors and texture of Art."

- Roberta Nieto

Olga Tenyakova

Born and raised in the Russian Far East, Olga Tenyakova relocated to the United States in 2002 leaving the entire body of work behind ? to start from a clean slate and to create art on a different level.

Studying in the Society of Figurative Arts (Dallas, TX) transformed Olga's style focusing on the human form. "The figure allows me to explore matters that I find most significant in today's culture. I use my diverse life experience and art expression to fuel my exploration of humanity in the modern world".

"I have always been fascinated by the Old Masters, but the most influential for me is work of Albrecht D?rer. My visual stories transport a viewer to the timeless Renaissance period where everything is possible".

Olga Tenyakova has exhibited her work internationally since 1992; her art is in private collections in Russia, USA, Sweden, Australia, France, and Germany. She currently resides in Escondido, California.

Christina Preiss

The primary aim of my miniature photography is to have the viewer stop, engage in the present moment and laugh. The present moment is all we really have, but people are often lost in past memories or future anxieties. However, seeing tiny people actively participating in our "super-sized" world, makes the viewer stop and take a second look. The image plays with their perception.

A lot of my miniature photography doesn't have intense or deep meaning. I enjoy seeing life in a humorous way and being playful with my work. However, some of my beliefs and passions are naturally revealed through my images.

Michael Miller

Michael Robert Miller is an artist from San Diego, California. At a young age he had an unrecognized hearing loss which caused problems at school and his home life. Due to this complication, he often turned to art when no one else could understand him. Later, the hearing issues were addressed and Michael attended California State University San Bernardino where his casual love for art turned serious.

Since then Michael has worked on developing his skills. He has experimented with drawings, paintings, sculptures, graphic design and mixed media to make new artworks. His works often refer to horror, fantasy, and pop culture. In Michael's new series of portraits his primary focus is on shading and realistic faces. The artworks will also include a fusion of Art Nouveau, macabre, and pop culture. With these portraits you will be met with a piercing set of eyes and a composition that tells a story about its subject.

Matthew Land

Matthew Land blends aspects of abstract expressionism, surrealism, folk, pop, and realism into paintings that create a certain mood or atmosphere to be determined by the viewer. Tangible textures take on a 2D feel as painted images exist in 3 dimensions in the foreground and background. Blends are achieved through the removal of paint as well as the addition of paint giving each piece an antiqued charm. Matthew studied under Northern California artist Myron Stephens for 4 years and has exhibited work at various galleries including Art Hatch, Thumbprint Gallery, Voz Alta, Molotov Gallery, Park Gallery, Alexander Salazar Fine Art (resident artist June 2012- September 2013) Smoking Mirrors Gallery, The Spot Barrio Logan, Roots Factory, GCS Santa Ana, and Shiny Nickel Art Gallery.

Matthew has done commercial artwork for clothing companies such as Volcom Stone, Hurley, Mada Inc, and Reign Apparel. Regarding his current body of work, Matthew has explained the concept as, "...paintings depicting the metaphorical walls that we as humans put up between ourselves and society to protect us, or reinforce beliefs handed down to us through the years?and the tools that can be used to destroy those walls."

Matthew Land is a Sacramento native, Santa Cruz transplant, currently residing in North Park, San Diego.

Anthony Lezama

Anthony Lezama has been creating art since he was a child, influenced by movies, comic books, and music.

I've always had a passion for art. Through the years i've tried different mediums. In my early twenties i began working with wood, creating furniture and designing kitchens.

Using almost anything for a canvas inspired by everything I see.

When it comes to art I find myself emulating other artists works, applying my own style and also doing complete originals.

My paintings would best be described as dreamscapes, images from reality in an un-real situation or environment. Like a stand mirror that is growing roots into dry desert ground or a widow to daylight in a night sky. My paintings are unique, though my style is influenced by artists like Salvador Dali and Michael Parks. I choose to use mostly oil paints because of their ability to have a depth and saturation of color that I feel captures my subjects the best. I love having the ability to work with colors that I can continually manipulate until I feel they are right. My artworks express...

Tonia Rockwell

I was introduced to jewelry making several years ago by my sister who gave me some beading wire and beads and showed me how to make a bracelet. From there I was hooked! Since then, I have taken many classes and have been fortunate to sell many of my designs. It didn't take long for me to discover metalsmithing and gemology, so I am constantly taking classes wherever I can find them and afford. I remain passionate about learning new techniques which I include in my work.

I earned my Graduate Jeweler diploma at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts (located in San Francisco, CA) and my Applied Jewelry Arts (AJA) and Graduate Gemologist (GG) diplomas from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), in Carlsbad, CA. I have also studied hand engraving and stone setting at the GRS Training Center and the New Approach School.

I am inspired by ancient jewelry styles and techniques. I love working with precious and semi-precious gemstones: Diamonds, Amethyst, Garnet, and Tourmaline are always a favorite. I have a deep appreciation for all effort that goes into mining gemstones from the earth and making them available to put in jewelry. Every stone is a one-of-a-kind piece of art that possesses its own unique beauty. I aim to highlight the stone's beauty in all of the jewelry I make.
