Susan Hanna

Field of Poppies

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.…

Photo of Cassandra Harner

Cassandra Harner is already familiar with thinking of herself in the third person, performing as alter-egos in music, drag, and comedy. She is a draglesque performer named Dusty Bucket, and a self-absorbed piece of art-work, Kay-T Critiques. She’s most recently been awarded Master of Amazement for Ohio Burlypicks 2020. She is a video artist and editor. She’s an illustrator and instructor of comics and pastel portraits. She has led classes in drag, camming, video art, and drawing. She’s an oversharer and radically vulnerable. She’s queer and kind of swears a lot. 

In the pastiche of Cassandra’s artistic practice, there are two main pillars holding it aloft: camp and fashion. If her audience isn’t laughing or at least bewildered, she is not fulfilled. Art isn’t limited to being gravely nodded at, in quiet contemplation from a safe distance. (Although nowadays, everything should be a safe 6 feet away) Being “serious” isn’t the only way to make thoughtful and legitimate work, even when it’s about queer identity, pop culture, art theory, or capitalism. She may have more to reveal than just a wig underneath another wig underneath another wig.

Or maybe, she just loves a gimmick.

Harris’ works in alabaster, marble, limestone and bronze express his perspective on the inherent duality in mans’ essence.…

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!

Photo of Beth A Himsworth

Beth Himsworth is a local Columbus artist who creates unique fused glass and mosaic wall-mounted panels and windows for residential, hospital and university environments.  Her fused glass and mosaics offer the same stunning colors and textures as traditional stained glass but add the intriguing dimension of far greater detail; often with thousands of hand-cut pieces of glass in a single panel.  Following 18 years living abroad, she brings to her work a deep appreciation of nature and culture in its beauty and diversity. Her contemporary, stylized nature themes provide a sense of serenity and beauty in a workspace.

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.
