Ana María Hernando is a contemporary artist originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. She makes paintings, sculptural installations, drawings, lithographic prints, and textile artwork with a layering of natural and formal elements. She currently lives in Boulder.

Kim Sullivan

Sullivan’s abstract paintings are inspired by the phenomena found in the natural world along with weather charts and patterns. This wellspring of inspiration has been a constant throughout Sullivan’s painting career. It is the entry point from where Sullivan begins her imaginative exploration of underlying patterns and structures found in nature.

Bob Knox

Bob Knox is drawn to clarity, light and beauty in paintings. He values precision as well as spontaneity. Bob follows his own path and concentrates on one painting at a time, working from found photos and his own sketches. 

Maeve Eichelberger

Maeve uses various and often fragmentary images and places them into an integrated whole.  Using plexiglass as a foundation, she layers her images to create vibrant and overlapping pieces, thus demonstrating the significance of observing life both sequentially and simultaneously.

Mark Friday

Denver artist Mark Friday uses found or discarded materials to create inventive and whimsical pieces that delight and surprise. His assemblage art engages the viewer with its variety of mediums, clever juxtapositions, and subtle sense of humor.

Bill Brown
