Matt Rattigan - "Return to Taos"

Our May First Friday artist captures the northern New Mexico landscape, the historic Taos Pueblo, and the current EARTHSHIP movement in his show called "Return to Taos."

These are all photos taken during an internship with Earthship Biotecture in November. Earthships are radically sustainable buildings made out of recycled materials such as tires, beer cans, and bottles.

The money I make from the sale of these prints will go towards my Earthship Academy tuition.   These photos shed light on a beautiful area of the globe, and a group of people who are really trying to better the planet.  

December First Friday - Naturalistic Photography & Offbeat Assemblage Art-Décor: Judith & Eli Marsh

Eli Marsh earned a B.A. in art at Glassboro State College in 1970, & worked in heavy construction all over the East Coast. He played music from the 80's until recently, all the while working on Assemblage Art Pieces. His work is owned by several collectors in Philadelphia and locally.    

                                       

Judith Marsh started taking baby pictures during high school, and that evolved into doing weddings on weekends, all the while painting houses for 20 yrs. Her photo work evolved into what she's doing now -  nature photos and making "petal paintings" from just about anything from nature that she can carry home.  She dries her finds and uses them in shadow boxes & the petal paintings.

If you are looking for a truly unique, one of a kind Christmas gift, rest assured you will find something from these two talented artists.

Temporal Limitations - October 2015

S. Makowski|Visual Artist

Fascinated by the unanswered questions life presents, Makowski believes subject offers a new insight into the complexity of the world. Through obvious visuals and obscure allusions knowledge is gained. She wishes to continue exploring these aspects of existence through her work.

Makowski, a Northeastern Pennsylvania native, specializes in fine art, fashion, event, portraits, and still life photography. Makowski has a B.A in Philosophy/Studio Art with a Concentration in Photography. While living in New York, she also studied at the International Center of Photography to further develop her skill set. She develops layered, conceptual work preferring simplistic technique to engage the viewer to mentally involve themselves in the visual. Her work encourages others to see past the obvious and utilizes abstract representation through mixed media whenever possible.

Temporal Limitations, explores the relationship between time & consciousness. Inspired by both natural and mechanical measures of time such as sun dials, waves, and shadows. The show is designed to visually reference how time is valued coupled with the un-traceable nature of time that has passed or is lost referencing personal images of the artist’s subconscious & experience.
