Skip Nall Photography
Exhibition Titled: Photographic Art Pushed Beyond
Medium: Stretched Canvas
About: Much of Skip's work begins with a single image that he views as a blank canvas and uses to create a piece of art that is one of a kind. Having practiced Zen for more than twenty years he carries that ZEN practice to his art and allows each piece create itself. Skip has been a photographer for thirty years. For much of that time he photographed advertising, corporate, and industrial work. In 1995 American Airlines sent him to Germany and later that year to France. While there he made the decision to take a hiatus from advertising, concentrate on travel photography and moved to Paris. For the next several years he photographed travel photography .living in both Europe and Asia. In 2006 he captured the image of a bridge in Northern Vietnam that would become known all over the world as "Jungle Journey".

Exhibition Titled: The Colors of Joyful Expression
Medium: Mixed Media & Collage
About: Susan's use of color and texture has become an integral part of her signature style. By becoming immersed in the stunning, tropical surroundings of Sarasota, her mixed media and collage pieces are informed by the color and richness of the local flavor. It is with intention and purpose that she uses color as a tool to infuse a happy, joyful spirit in her art pieces. Susan builds her art from conception to execution by experimenting with color to create the feeling and mood she hopes to convey. Her collage pieces come together through a process of auditioning the layout of her unique hand painted and printed collage papers before merging all the elements into a cohesive composition.
