Featured Artists

Peter J. Sucy

After more than 25,000 years of technological advancements, the original process of applying pigment to a cave wall has come back in vogue. Pigment shoots from a narrowed spout and sticks to a stone or "clay" surface. The technology has advanced from using our mouth as the reservoir, our lips as nozzles, and our hands to form the masking tools. Today we have pigment inkjet printers with multiple nozzles many times smaller than we could ever purse our lips. Best of all, now your mouth, nose and hands don't get all messy.

Dennis Griffin

I have always been fascinated by the interplay of color, design, and the magical effects of light and reflections. From the early days working in darkrooms smelling of acetic acid to the present using the immaculate technology of inkjet printers, my goal of making artful images has remained unchanged...to utilize the elements of light, color and design to create unique images of beauty in various subjects.
