Shannon Belkin
Scout, 2017 
Oil on canvas 
60 x 48 in

Shannon Belkin first became known for her bold, yet sensitive portraits which capture the inner life of her subjects. Her portraits now include horses, dogs, cats and other animals, with frequent commissions by the animal lovers themselves.  Belkin's paintings hang in corporate, private and institutional collections across the United States and Canada. She currently lives and works in Vancouver.

"My work has traditionally explored the intricate interaction between humans and nature and the sometimes precarious relationship we have with the world around us."

Victor Chiarizia
45 x 6 x 6 in

Since 1975, Victor Chiarizia has explored many facets of glassmaking, including blown, flameworked, cast, etched and sandblasted. Chiarizia’s sculptural works express his thoughts about life, growth and renewal, comprised in two distinctive techniques—hot glass and flameworked glass with vitreous fired-on enamels. Profound images from Chiarizia’s Italian-American background coupled with a boundless imagination give an earthy yet surreal style to much of his sculptural work. Chiarizia’s glass is well-known for its technical innovations, organic forms and spirited colorations. 
Wendy Chidester
Focus II, 2016 
Oil on canvas 
36 x 39 in

Wendy Chidester currently works out of her two studios in Salt Lake City and in Helper, Utah. She studied drawing and painting at the University of Utah, graduating with a BFA in 1988.  An award-winning artist, Chidester paints every day and continues her growth as a fine realist painter.

I’m a bit of a sentimentalist and it shows in my work. I find myself drawn to the abandoned and neglected objects of yesterday. In today’s fast paced, high-tech world an incredible array of well worn tools, gadgets, and mechanical gems have been overshadowed and left behind. These are the subjects for my paintings, and I enjoy the challenge they present.”

Giuseppe Palumbo
Bliss, 2017 
Bronze, 4 of 50
54 x 18 x 18 in

Giuseppe Palumbo's figurative bronze sculptures are textural, warm, spirited works that capture the essence of each being he portrays. He just released a new bronze in his iconic series of dancing sheep, "Bliss."  Palumbo studied in Italy, Mexico, Loveland, CA, Scottsdale, AZ, and the Art Students League in Denver, CO. He maintains studios in Sausalito, CA and Eldorado Springs, CO. His work has been exhibited throughout the US and can be found in prominent collections worldwide.
Todd Monk
Acrylic on canvas 
48 x 48 in

Chosen as one of Art Business News' Top 40 Artists to Watch for 2015, Todd Monk is an emerging visual artist whose visions are executed in his trademark "pixelism" style, as vibrant, methodically-slathered acrylic paintings that explode with color and ooze sensuality. The first 25 years of Todd's life were mostly spent filling sketchbooks with drawings and paintings. After completing an Illustration and Design course in college, he headed for the city with the goal of becoming a Marvel comic book artist. Only after publishing his first comic, "Sequence: Noble," did he realize that painting was his true passion.
