My current artistic practice is focused on printmaking and ceramics.  I am a member artist at Studios on High Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, where I exhibit in both mediums.  In the printmaking realm, I am most drawn to dry point etchings on acrylic and enjoy combining them with other techniques.  I also create photopolymer gravure prints using light-sensitive metal plates (developed in plain water) and my own photographs and original drawings and combining these prints with graphite and charcoal.  I am also a printmaking instructor at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center.  The instructors and students all use non-toxic methods and materials for printmaking, and we are all conscious of reusing supplies and conserving our materials to the greatest extent possible. I ink and print all of my images by hand in small editions.

I have led a “double life” of sorts in the field of business, as well as art. I first received a B.S. in Economics from Lehigh University (graduating Cum Laude), followed by an MBA from Stanford Business School. Upon graduating from Stanford, during the tumultuous period of the Vietnam War, I spent several years in a pilot MBA program for VISTA (domestic Peace Corps) consulting for community groups in a Hispanic neighborhood in San Francisco.…

Ed Carpenter

Artist

Ed Carpenter is an artist specializing in large-scale public installations ranging from architectural sculpture to infrastructure design.  Since 1973 he has completed scores of projects for public, corporate, and ecclesiastical clients.  Working internationally from his studio in Portland, Oregon, USA, Carpenter collaborates with a variety of expert consultants, sub-contractors, and studio assistants.  He personally oversees every step of each commission, and installs them himself with a crew of long-time helpers, except in the case of the largest objects, such as bridges.

Photo of jose Bruno b. Casiano

In Puerto Rico, he studied painting at the School of Plastic Arts in Old San Juan in the early 1980s. He pursued further studies in illustration at The School of Design, Altos de Chavon in La Romana, Dominican Republic and, in the mid-1990s, at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio. For a few years he owned and curated the Bruno Casiano Gallery in the West side of Cleveland. The Gallery eventually became unviable, but Bruno Casiano continues know and be known by most artists in the area.

One distinct innovation in some of his work features the decoration of the frames he uses for his art. Not wanting to stop at the edge of the canvas, Casiano paints, wraps, stains and engraves the pine wood frames he uses with written text and poetry of his own authorship, carved with a nail or pyrograph, or wrapped with vintage magazine cutouts, creating a literally expressive frame for his artwork. Casiano receives regular commissions and his work is frequently on exhibit.

JOHN CHRISTENSEN – BIO
John Christensen is an artist working in Austin, Texas. Born in New York City, he received degrees in Visual and Environmental Studies – and art – from Harvard and the University of Texas. Before 1990, he developed a body of site-sensitive work in rural landscapes of New York, Georgia and Texas. Since 1990, he has focused that sensibility on projects for the theater and the public place. He has created, in collaborations with choreographers, interactive props and theatrical environments for 30 productions presented in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. He has designed and built commercial spaces, and, unique and production furniture. Working in a variety of media he has exhibited around the country. He has completed 20 large scale public and private commissions in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Albuquerque, Miami, Tucson, Portland and Fort Worth. Collaborating with other design professionals he developed infrastructure and interactive art for a municipal park. He brings to any project an unusually broad set of technical and conceptual skills. In recent sculptures and reliefs he has arranged motifs to evoke organic systems – branching rhizomes, biotic colonies, neural networks, wave interference patterns, polymers – clustered works with perceptual associations that make poetic connections between phenomena in disparate fields. He sustains a studio practice, going to his studio most days to make things.
