JUDGES

Flo Bartell

“I am driven to create, so I escape to my studio to savor the fragrance of wax and the texture and rich colors possible with encaustic.

My paintings and sculptures evolve. I build up layers, then scrape them away. Then I add more wax. I experiment and redo until my art reveals my story. I work with encaustic because I am drawn to the glossy surface and its unpredictable nature. I sculpt and paint with a spirit of exploration that I hope the viewer can feel."

Flo's art has appeared in numerous exhibits, on magazine covers, and has been adapted for needlepoint.

Beauty and function blend together under the hands of this gifted artist. As an artist, no two pieces are alike - just like the plants, animals and people! Clay has been Richard Rowe's livelihood and passion for the last 40 years. His studio is on the Central Coast of California which gives much inspiration to his art.

Richard received his BA degree in Art and History in 1976. He resides in Morro Bay, where you will also find his studio, Rowe Clayworks, http://www.roweclayworks.com/.

You also can find Rowe Pottery at Grow Nursery in Cambria, and on Etsy . Richard is active in Central Coast Cactus Society.
