Susan Hanna paints portraits of men and women in the news. Using her cell phone as a prop, she brings to life the complex personalities of politicians and pundits. Painting a glimmer of a smile or an intense keen searching gaze, Susan shows the characteristics of an individual and the experiences that go into the makeup of a significant life.…
Mark Yale Harris realized his true passion – stone carving – in the 1990s. Having moved to Santa Fe, he was mentored by sculptors Bill Prokopiof (Aleut) and Doug Hyde (Nez Perce). Over the past twenty years, Harris has unrelentingly challenged and reveled in his creative side. Harris’ works in alabaster, marble, limestone and bronze express his perspective on the inherent duality in mans’ essence.…

In his paintings, Rod Hayslip focuses on the visual richness of people and places. He seeks the narratives of life where every element of human diversity can be found woven together—in the cities. These rhythms of everyday life are fused to the visual patterns of movement and light.
Hayslip utilizes pigments in oils, acrylics and latex—often on the same piece—to paint highly orchestrated urban scenes. The line between painter and theatrical producer seems to blur as he stages his lead actors and supporting cast. He frequently choses high, almost aerial, vantage points for his compositions. These created stories assume a life of their own once they leave the studio as each following viewer imagines a narrative of their own making.
Rod Hayslip received a Bachelor of Art Education from the Ohio State University. He is a nationally awarded contemporary artist who has studied with Pheoris West, Mark Gingrich and Jerry Weiss. Hayslip is also a signature member of the American Impressionist Society. He currently resides in Delaware County, Ohio.
For me the most exciting painting is the painting I haven’t yet made, those problems I haven’t yet solved. Making paintings, is a difficult proposition and I know that one really never learns how to paint. For me, each painting is a mistake, asking a question that points toward the possibility of the next painting. What I want for my paintings is that painting on the other side of Rembrandt’s easel, the one that has not been revealed. Almost four centuries his painting still asks questions about painting and the future of painting. The painting unseen. I want that!
From my youngest years there was never a time when my dad did not see me as a photographer. I photographed as my father had taught me, and I was an apprentice to the voices within and to other photographers who like myself, did not have degrees but whose names are known and whose work is published. Photographers have always learned the art from other photographers. The science of photography is easy. But the path of listening and being attentive to the voices of others, and the creative, imaginative voice within is hard, difficult, demanding, unrelenting, never finished. This creating is hard because creating people are doing and making and thinking things into being which did not exist before this moment. That’s why it’s hard, and why being passionate seems like a soft work for being possessed with the spirit to create.
Photography for some, is a manner of living, a way of living that continually is shaping the way we look and see and gaze, not with a stare or a glare, but with a soft look of love for this earth.

I am a painter who works in oil, watercolor, and all drawing mediums. My preferred subjects are the human face and figure, as well as aging architectural elements. There is an interaction between subject and ground that I cannot resist. Distillation of intent into a simple essence is my goal.
