Gaby Roter

“My art is about nature and how we deal with it in our daily lives. i am never interested in realistic depictions, but in a realization of energy that should touch the viewer. be it the beauty, the vulnerability or the unique power inherent in every little part.”

Richard Sperry

"Art, whether abstract or representational, like the night sky, invites us to imagine, participate and create stories. As we view and gaze endlessly, subtle changes in our perception and vision transform what we see, at the speed of light, in our mind's eye.”

Stardust Origins in the Constellation of Love - Mixed media on canvas 40 x 40 in. $3200

Richard Sperry, an American artist residing in Saint Charles, paints his life as he experiences it. He defies categorization as merely an abstract painter, a landscapist, or a figurative artist. Instead, he finds inspiration in both internal and external mechanisms, compelling him to depict his thoughts, emotions, experiences, and existence itself through his art.

Sperry's paintings serve as a personal diary, catalog, and chronology of his life's events, reflecting nearly six decades of personal and artistic growth. Each piece is meticulously crafted, starting with an acrylic paint base and then layered with oil paint, oil pastel, ebony pencil, charcoal, oil stick, and 18k gold paint and leaf. The presence of the 18k leaf and an infinity symbol across his artworks serves as his signature, a trademark that distinguishes his work.

Through his unique artistic process and autobiographical expressions, Richard Sperry invites viewers into his intimate world, where every stroke carries the weight of his life's journey and the depth of his artistic vision.

Tricia Skoglund

"I have always considered myself a multifaceted artist. I've been very fortunate and found great joy in exploring a multitude of different art forms and different mediums. I now work exclusively with torch cut steel. I like the way that painting on metals adds a creative and unique element to my art."

Whats Sup - Acrylics, Mixed Media on torch-cut steel 24 x 30 in.

While growing up in Southern California, Tricia's youthful talent as an artist was quickly recognized by her early art teachers and by several prominent artists in the area. This early recognition made it possible for her to spend many years studying under some of the most prominent artists in and around the famous art colony of Laguna Beach, CA.

After graduating from High School with an art scholarship, Tricia accepted a position as a manager, and contributing artist, at an art gallery in Del Mar, CA. It was during this time that she took the opportunity to explore many different art forms and art mediums all while continuing her education, managing the gallery, and showing and selling her own work.

The next step in her art career took her to Salem, Oregon where she started a family and at the same time went to college to study Graphic Design. In addition, she was able to use her gallery experience to open, own and operate her very successful Arts and Design Co., which specialized in painting and designing murals in both residential and commercial properties.

Now that her family has grown, Tricia Skoglund has once again evolved and grown in a new and creative way. She is currently having fun using acrylics, pastels, torch-cut steel and all kinds of recycled metals. She loves the contrasts and energy that old metal gives to her art and how it gives each of her creations a distinctive one-of-a-kind 3-dimensional, individual look.

Discovering unrefined and rustic details in nature gives her inspiration for her work. Objects left outside to rust and corrode captivate her imagination and compel her to give new life. as a highlighted part of her work. Tricia also finds inspiration from the sea. The movement from the water, how it reflects light, and its energy are always very important parts of her work. It's that combination that helps make each of Tricia Skoglund's creations be a very unique and smoothly interwoven piece of work.

Howard Harris

"Visual reality is an ever-shifting, highly individualized experience. In any given moment, what we see reflects both our inner state and a synthesis of outer qualities—light, color, movement, space. My exploration in dimensional photographic art represents an attempt to recreate the perceptual experience, with its dynamic nature and hidden complexities. In my patented process I use photographic constructions, a single often abstracted image is layered over itself on clear acrylic surfaces and superimposed on a subtle grid. The resulting visual phenomenon infuses the image with a sense of dimensionality and fluidity affected by such changes as the angle of viewing and light."

Ayers Rock - Sublimation Print on Aluminum with Acrylic overlay 36 x 30 in.

Howard Harris has long been fascinated by both visual perception and design. The Denver Colorado USA native earned a BFA from Kansas City Art Institute, MID (Masters Industrial Design) from Pratt Institute in New York studying with internationally renowned design theorist Rowena Reed Kostellow.

Harris has spent more than 35 years combining design and technology where he has won many prestigious professional awards. Now his creative energy has turned to his lifelong passion, photography. With an iconoclastic streak that had seen him consistently forging new directions in design, he was bound to approach the photographic image in an unconventional way as well.

In 2017 Harris was granted a United States Patent no: 9,753,295 titled Apparatus and Method of Manufacturer for a Layered Artwork proving the uniqueness and inventiveness of his photographic work. Since then his work has appeared in many books and publications such as The Great Masters of Contemporary Art, ARTtour International Artists of the Decade, Art Collectors Choice Japan, International Contemporary Masters, and Top 10 Contemporary Artists, to mention a few. He has also been awarded Artists for a Green Planet Artist of the Decade, International Prize Raffaello, International Prize Giulio Cesare, International Prize Leonardo Da Vinci, International Prize Caravaggio, Contemporary Art Curator Magazines Artist of the Future, and more.

Howard Harris serves as a Trustee of The Kansas City Art Institute has won the Who’s Who Worldwide Lifetime Achievement and the USA Small Businessperson of the Year. His work is shown internationally and represented by galleries in the United States, U.K., and Europe and appears in the South Korean Yukyung Art Museum.

Leila Bokel

"This is my last series which I have named 'Minimalist series', a study I began to develop during the Quarantine years. Most artworks have only 2 or 3 different threads. I'm happy with the result because the threads that where the supporting of the architectural forms became the protagonists of the artworks themselves."
