Micah Ofstedahl My work invokes awareness of the complexity and beauty of the world around us, seen and unseen. To achieve this I incorporate lesser-known elements of nature and science into my paintings in addition to my creative interpretation of the unseen, mysterious components of life.

Dean Buchser has been creating mosaics for over twenty years, He thrives on the vibrant colors and reflections in his mosaic mirrors. The convex mirrors warp what we see into what it just might be. What exactly is behind the looking glass?
Creating mosaics for over twenty years, I thrive on the vibrant colors and reflections in my mosaic mirrors. The convex mirrors warp what we see into what it just might be. What exactly is behind the looking glass?
With a zest for Central American culture and my early years in the desert southwest, I sculpt what I have seen in my dreams. There are places in time that change us and sculpt us into who we are, who we have been and who we will become. These little steps or giant leaps we take are so much who we are as people and as artists.
Visit Dean upstairs in Studio #8.

Samantha McDermott-Goldie, Lower Level Featured Artist As a child I loved to create potions out of everything around me, trees, flowers, and mushrooms. I would put everything I collected into a jar to bake and ferment in the sun. And being an adult back in Ashland after living in the corporate world of fashion I have decided to go back to my love of making potions. From my surroundings, farms, gardens, and parks, I gather organic material and then hand dye textiles into one of kind pieces of art. I do this in hopes of challenging what clothes are made of and how, […]
