Sandra’s haunting imagery is about capturing remembered moments from the past. Working in several bodies of work, she explores history by photographing what remains from previous eras. Through the unique way she captures these places and by printing the images in various alternative processes, she makes them her own vision while creating an illusory veil of dreaminess. http://www.sandracdavis.com/
Lou Storey’s artwork has always chronicled his life and gives visual manifestation to what is meaningful to him. Lou’s current paintings incorporate a multitude of ideas, concepts and psychological theories related to the mental health profession. His days in the studio are devoted to visually defining these various philosophies and therapies while working out difficult or elusive feelings and thoughts that are part of his workday. Bright colors, intricate patterns and directional motion continue to be his pictorial vocabulary as Lou now paints what he sees or needs to understand in his rewarding life as a clinical therapist. http://www.loustoreyart.com/
