Britt Rynearson designs bold, original textiles and clothing in both wall hanging and wearable forms.  Her rich background as a textile artist, modern aesthetic, and training in the Japanese art of Arashi shibori has garnered her work considerable attention; Rynearson has had work exhibited at the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Museum,  has been featured regularly in national art and craft publications, and her designs are carried by boutiques nationwide.  Influential training came from: a fine art degree from Scripps College, courses at Fuji Studios in Florence, Italy, a live/work experience in a Balinese village to study ikat and silk weaving.  She has taught fine art and surface design courses since 2002, and currently serves part time on the faculty of Gage Academy of Art and Cornish College of Design, among others.

"After a career in the precise left-brain world, I reinvented myself as an abstract watercolor artist whose work is reminiscent of mid-century modern paintings.  Painting is meditative. I paint loosely, play with colors, and let the paints flow together naturally as highlighted in the managed chaos of color and form in my work." - Tervonen

Artist: Lewis Curtiss Jr., Paint and Collage
Lewis' love of quilts and the fabric pieces they're made from, turned into collage once he realized that beautiful traditional quilt block designs could be interpreted using other materials and methods. Instead of an entire quilt, he chooses to focus on the individual block patterns. Despite the classic geometry of the designs Lewis chooses, the random visual energy of the papers he creates bring a new vision to these classic standards. The longer one looks at a block, the more you see in the visual depths of the texture, forms and colors.

Wow, I love art galleries. There is one called "Praxis International Art" This modern space, opened in 1977 by Miguel Kehayoglu, is a vibrant art gallery which organizes international events, auctions and exhibits by contemporary Latin American and internationally reknown artists who are highly appraised by collectors. The gallery has opened branches in New York and Miami. People who rent apartments in buenos aires do it in this area since it is the cultural center of the city.
