Hand-loomed Textiles
by Armando Sosa
in the 2nd Floor Foyer

Master weaver Armando Sosa builds his own looms, and then begins the slow, repetitive process of weaving a single piece for at least 100 hours of work. This ancient craft merges his Guatamalan culture with motifs from the Mayans to the Asians as the silk, cotton and wool strands are woven into luxurious pillow covers, wall hangings and table runners.

Photography Embellished with Paint
by Karen McLean
in the Dining Room

Gallery Karen merges the two disciplines of photography and drawing/painting to develop her personal imagery. The pictorial issues of light, space and form are key as she prints the photographic image on heavy watercolor paper. Her purposeful addition of drawing and painting allows the discovery or recognition of images within the photograph to emerge while light provides a sensuality and transformative quality.

Animal Watercolors
by Beatrice Bork 
the Salon Gallery

Beatrice mastered the fine art of watercolor painting with a sensitivity to detail and composition. Her personal connectivity to her animal subjects elevates her work to become visual poetry. She has earned signature status by both the Society of Animal Artists and Artists for Conservation along with numerous other international awards.

Belle Pietre Jewelry

by Rebecca Carr
in the East and West Vitrines

Rebecca combines her love of nature and her opera career through the creation of handcrafted, artisan-designed jewelry. Each piece of her Belle Pietre Jewelry features the glamour and glow of Nature’s stone with jewelry of operatic proportions that are unique, harmonious and dramatic.
