Yaya Karahkwahawi: Painting

Yaya began her love for art before preschool age.  Formal art training was out of reach during her formative years.  But as a child of the 50’s and 60’s doors opened to her that she considers the finest possible art education.  Before the age of fully 16, she spent many hours at the Bolton Landing farm of her art idol; sculptor David Smith, a recipient of the prestigious “Guggenheim Fellowship for Creative Arts”.  Although Smith died in 1965, Yaya maintains friendships with contemporaries Smith mentored.  Yaya was accepted at Goddard Experimental Collage in Vermont, also at 16, where she learnt with mature artists in that community.  Yaya has participated in classwork at The San Francisco Art Institute, while not old enough to enroll. Her passion is Abstract composition and forms, although she is skilled in portraiture and animal subjects.   She has earned awards for her work in juried competition venues throughout the United States.

Jane Kircher: Fused/Slumped Glass

Jane transfers strong design skills and a passion for light into unique, evocative and often surprising fused and slumped glass pieces.  Light, by its nature, inspires and reveals.  Her series of window hangings play with the concept of “light chimes”.  Is sound not simply a different harmonic of the visual range?   Instead of wind and sound, these chimes transfer light and colors that will never fade.  Place them in brilliant sunlight or in a window.  Jane also creates slumped votive candle holders or vases for precious mementos or ceremonial objects.

Motte Thomas: Fine Artist

 My ideas are inspired by the natural energy that I feel flows throughout our world and relatively connects us to everything else in the universe. Much like the insistent rushing of a mountain stream navigating around boulders and over the falls, the silent rise and fall of tides in coastal marshlands, the pull of the moon and the planets, the swirl of the galaxies, energies that are intertwined and woven together in much the same manner as my art is composed.

Jane Kircher: Fused, Slumped Glass

VaseJane transfers strong design skills and a lifelong interest in light into original, evocative and often humorous fused and slumped glass sculptures.  This love of light gave her the inspiration to develop “light chimes”, creations that play with sunlight as wind plays with metal chimes.   For Jane, light and life are synergistic.  Light dances in the silence between thoughts.  It invites opportunity for delight, intimacy and wonder.   She loves to bend light through glass, cabochons and prisms setting a stage where it is broken into rays and rainbows as the day progresses.  Each object she creates, whether intended as a window sculpture or as a three dimensional piece, reflects and transfers light and color in ever changing ways.  Her experimentally crafted works use scrap glass, found materials, beads prisms and wire.  Some pieces are fused or slumped multiple times to achieve the desired result.
