Intuition is a guiding hand in my decision making process, from color schemes to composition and subject matter. I draw how I feel, and hidden meaning often lurks behind surfaces of oil paint, charcoal, graphite, and other various media. My hands are often my main instrument, bridging the intimate connection between maker and creation.
Each work fluctuates in style, just as my day to day mood and demeanor do. My art is a refusal to remain stagnant; each piece a subconscious megaphone for my feelings, coupling dull colors with vibrant, intense hues. There is intention in each movement– even chaos can be calculated.

Currently Roy paints in Oil and Acrylic, working in plein air, but also from field studies in the studio. Subtle storytelling is a large part of his process, creating love filled letters about the Midwestern farm

My work is still in the constant development stage every painting is a little better than the last moving toward a finished style I perceive to be the ultimate for me. I generally paint landscapes, or objects of interest to me. I use a lot of paint drying each coat before the next this gives the final piece a true depth weather I’m using brush or knife.
Visual Arts: Painting
Artists seem to be endowed with perceptual understandings that go beyond merely seeingthings. As an artist I want to offer the viewer more than a recording or a photographic likeness of a visual scene. I wish to expose the mysterious depths that lie beneath.
If I am successful, then my viewer can look into as well as look at my painting. Rather than just seeing an old man walking the hilly roads of Ireland, I want to present his story to the viewer. My use of colors, values, temperatures and edges allow my viewer a glimpse of what is beyond the obvious.
By looking into my painting, the viewer can vicariously experience the dedication and drudgery of the Irish peasant as he totes a bundle of hay up and down the cold damp hills, and possibly imagine what it feels like to be in this old man’s muddy Wellington boots as he takes his daily trod. The viewer not only sees the visual scene but also may smell the moist hay, feel the cold wind, and perhaps hear the soulful tune that resonates within.

Using the power of stories as my inspiration I seek to tell them visually with expressive and stylized art. With book illustrations, comics, and story boards I bring my stories, and my clients ideas, to life. Through intricate detail, lighting, atmosphere, and the sublties of emotion I capture stories to share.

“My work is a process of addition by subtraction. I am always thinking of ways to describe an object or picture by showing what it is not. I also enjoy experimenting with different media when ever possible.” Anthony Bowers

I collect carburetors, bike frames, and fire hydrants…any mechanical artifacts that I can find. Each piece has its own unique story. When I use these objects in my sculpture, I get the privilege of giving those objects a new story. I prefer working with steel because of its strength, durability, form, and how it deteriorates.
Visual Arts: Photography
My work, in general, concentrates on public space. It seems that the space provided for reflection and enjoyment is most often only used for rest or meeting. I use images to highlight what can be overlooked in these spaces. Through reflection and the appreciation of aesthetic in a space freqented by the pedestrian, enjoyment and appreciation can be highlighted.

Visual Arts: Ceramics, Sculpture
Peggy Breidenbach is an Indianapolis-based ceramic artist and educator. Her sculptural work mines her own life experiences – growing-up, mothering, loss, aging and the fragile beauty of now – to not only better understand her humanity, but also to remind viewers of theirs. In addition to time in her studio, her practice includes journaling, reading, poetry and time outdoors. Her ceramic forms reference those found in nature – seeds, bones, stones and fossils – artifacts of the living world. By enlarging them to elevate their beauty and impact, they become potent metaphors for themes she aims to explore.
Peggy came to ceramics as a second career and has developed her craft over many years of university and art center classes, numerous workshops and much trial and error. She has taught ceramics at the Indianapolis Art Center since 2003. She regularly exhibits her work in shows in Indiana and beyond. Her website is www.peggybreidenbach.com.

My work follows the impulse of the imagination. Inspired by dreams and meditation, these abstracts employ color, texture, and suggested forms to evoke images that explore the human condition- one’s relationship to the environment, to others and oneself. This interplay of symbolism, archetypes and mythology creates an expression both personal and universal.

“My photography is very diverse based on the mood or location that I am in. For many years my focus has been photographing flower in their most intimate details. In recent years I am experimenting with the tonal qualities of black and white. As co-owner of a fine art greeting card company my focus has expanded to become proficient in landscapes and various other types of work.” Becky Brill

My work deals with loss and memory. The work relates to the passing of my parents and how I cope with memories that I can not trust, but I simultaneously cherish.
I have been doing stained glass for over 7 years now following in my father’s footsteps. I make copper foiled tiffany style suncatchers and panels as well as leaded pieces in my Westfield studio. I’m currently displaying my art in CCA Gallery on Main Street in Carmel.
Visual Arts: Jewelry
I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Comparative Religion from Keyon College and a Master’s Degree in Art from the University of Indianapolis. Eclectic, vibrant, and intricately detailed, my jewelry designs include a variety of new and traditional media. I am well-versed in techniques using bead weaving, fused glass, polymer clay, and metalwork. I’ve even studied with a South African artist to learn traditional Zulu beading methods. In addition to jewelry, my other artistic endeavors include fabric dyeing, fiber art, and painting in acrylics and watercolors. I work most often from my home studio, but I also share studio space with my mother at the Stutz Building in downtown Indianapolis. My art has been sold in many galleries and dozens of shows over the past ten years.

Jen Broemel: Artist Bio
I work mainly with cloth for its tactility, responsiveness, and abundance. I was originally drawn in by the process, the way in which the materials layer. The way they feel as they are worked. The way the thread and cloth work together, transforming and guiding the work, adding texture, contrast, and comfort with every stitch.
I love the history and tradition of women sewing together and am in love with the community that surrounds and supports those who sew together.
I am especially interested in taking cast off or everyday fabrics and working them into something unexpected, repurposing something ordinary and turning it into something special, something to cherish, and behold. I work intuitively letting my sense of the fabrics color, texture, and shape guide their placement and the stitches placed upon them.
I love exploring, experimenting with the different ways to manipulate the cloth with the thread, putting together and cutting apart, constructing and reconstructing, a cycle that for me symbolizes the happenstance of life.
My intention is to inspire others to look at the world around them more carefully, more mindfully, to see the extraordinary in the discarded, to notice the beauty in the mundane. And if they can’t see it, to show them it is possible to look at things in a new and different way. How we see the world shapes our lives, our relationships, our actions. Let us notice the miracles of every day, every stitch. . .EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
