Joan Gerigk

Joan Gerigk
Artists Statement: I love puzzles, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, work puzzles. I love all of it and that is one of the reasons I think that I love painting. Painting is a puzzle whereby you must resolve one problem before you can go on and tackle the next. Then there is always the hope that at the end of this struggle there will be a successful conclusion. I find this process of problem solving very challenging and satisfying.

 

Of course this is only one reason that I am drawn to painting. I also like the challenge of trying to convey beauty and emotion. The subject matter of my paintings can be quirky or sentimental depending on what has intrigued me about the subject matter. I tend to be more emotionally driven in my approach to painting. I hope that my paintings stimulate the viewer to see life from a different perspective.

 

Biography: I believe my career began with “Paint by Numbers” when I was in grade school. After completing the Last Supper I thought I was a bona fide artist. However, I only sporadically dabbled in Arts till much later in life when I began painting. I painted water colors and became a mural artist for a while. In 2010 I took an oil painting class in Petoskey and began to paint in oils. I find that painting is the most relaxing and satisfying thing one can do.

Kim Krumrey

Kim Krumrey
Petoskey resident, Kim Krumrey first studied ceramics at Western Michigan University. She opened her ceramics studio in 1999 after apprenticing with potter/sculpture David Austin for one year. Since then Kim has been self taught, continually experimenting with new techniques and designs. She currently shows her work at fine galleries and participates in juried fine art fairs throughout Michigan. Her work is bold and fun, celebrating color, pattern and shape to create dynamic visual contrast within each piece. The colors she uses are vibrant; the patterns are clean and simple yet bold; and the shapes are often altered to create a sense of movement and playfulness. She uses both wheel thrown and hand building techniques, often combining both in the same piece.

Robert Scudder

Robert Scudder
Artists Statement: I have always been involved some sort of creative process, whether drawing, painting or constructing something in three dimensions. I love the progression, the conception, the problem solving, learning the media, and setting the goal.

 

I enjoy the mental steps it takes and the challenges that I confront as I go through the evolution. My journey begins somewhere inside and ends up as one piece of art that I have created that will only be produced once, and the satisfaction that I have achieved the goal.

 

I know of no other human activity that allows a person to use all of their skills and creativity that allows such pleasure and fulfillment as the creative process. I feel fortunate to be able to have the opportunity and skills to be allowed to enjoy this process an am looking forward to what new experiences this journey will bring

 

Biography: After high school I moved to Emmet County to become a full time artist, however life interfered I needed a full time job. I owned Sign & Design for 40 years retiring in 2014 at which time I began painting full time. I am looking forward to improving my skills and enjoying the journey.

Michelle Dieter

Michelle Dieter
As of January of 2012, Michelle has become very taken with the Photography of Food. Though she has held a camera for 40 years, it has never felt like this. The challenge is thrilling. Michelle is delighted and teased at the same time when she looks at her images admitting not that they are great, but quite the opposite. It’s the yearning to get back on the horse and try again, and delighted when she is not bucked off. She is the mother of one, and wife of another and considers herself fortunate to be surrounded by supporting family and friends, making her blogging fun. Her goal is to make a living with her new passion, be it working in a studio (no job is too small), for a photographer, a magazine, a newspaper, or restaurants.

Katherine Brines

Katherine Brines
Katherine Brines grew up in Northern Michigan and received her B.F.A in painting and ceramics from Aquinas College in 2007. In 2009, she received a fellowship to attend a one-month residency at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, VT, where she spent the month painting and interacting with fellow artists and writers in rural Vermont.  She was then hired as a resident artist at the Studio Center, working in Admissions and painting the Vermont landscape from 2009-2010. Katherine’s work is inspired by nature and imagined biomorphic ecosystems. Color and experimentation with materials upon a 2-dimensional surface characterize her abstractions. Time spent traveling through Central and Eastern Europe and working on boats on Lake Michigan and the Caribbean allowed for a new perspective on the importance of preserving the water and land in which we inhabit.  Something Katie hopes to humbly capture through her paintings. Katherine lives and paints in Petoskey, MI.

Sheridan Jones

Sheridan Jones
Much of my art reflects our natural surroundings. Growing up in southern Ohio, exploring the woods, creeks, meadows and farms, I discovered my way of being in the world. The natural world seems to define what is exciting, fluid, tense and calming all at the same time. This beautiful mix of senses is what inspires me. My hope is to bring the excitement I feel in living life into my painting.
I have been enthusiastically painting in pastel for several years, working almost exclusively in the plein air style ~ painting from life in the unpredictable outdoors. This method demands a painting be close to complete before the light no longer tells the same story.

Alan Maciag

Alan Maciag
Michigan artist, Alan Maciag, graduated from Central Michigan University with a Masters Degree in Art Education. He has retired after teaching art for the last thirty-two years in the Frankenmuth School District. Alan is an avid drawer whose sketches have served as valuable subject matter to so many of his oil paintings. His inspired works are numerous and are in private collections in California, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Texas, Florida, Michigan, Germany and France. Alan’s avid interest in architecture and gardening are reoccurring themes in his current body of work. His rural landscapes are a balance between form, distance, color, and content. This balance creates a sense of calm and bucolic reverence for the rural heritage of Michigan, for the wonderland of her vacation lakes or for the sanctuary within a garden or public space. Alan also has an ability to capture the energy of city life. He literally draws out the quintessential elements that are the breath of life in his subjects and definition of statements. Ever evolving, Alan’s work is growing as the artist grows influenced by the beauty surrounding him as seen through his eyes.

Loretta Miles

Loretta Miles
Making fine art has been a passion my entire life. With strong encouragement to gain practical business knowledge, I followed a business course of study at Wayne Univ. However, from that point on, all studies involved design, art and architecture. My working career has been in design and space planning. Creating pleasant appearing spaces was not the only goal; it was to be able to understand the engineering that allowed stability and to be assured of true functionality. What a joy it has been to “see and feel” the future space while still on the drawing board and only a concept, all this before the wonderful world of computers. During the years of working in the design business, I developed an avid interest in the fine art installed in those spaces, whatever its form. My interest and passion pushed me to continually study, attend workshops and classes in various mediums of art creation—always realizing I had/have so much more to learn. When finally reaching retirement, I decided my next career would be full-time creation of art. What joy it is to focus on expending my energies and passion toward higher levels of creativity!

Living in Sault Sainte Marie Michigan, immersed in the woods around me, I found myself fulfilling a long felt desire to make unique images of the tree.  The new found media of digital camera and large format printer has unleashed a wave of “Full Tree Portraits” and panoramic woodlands scenes that perfectly express my vision of displaying the tree in it’s existence, from seed to death, in every season.
