Michael Holter is an award-winning artist who works in watercolor and oil who's paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in the US and several foreign countries. Although Michael has been painting most of his life, his work experience spans a wide range of creative challenges. He has been an art teacher, creative director and businessman in both fine art and commercial art. Michael has owned and operated galleries and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and an MA in Visual Communication.
Michael says, "My work is impressionistic. I like to represent people or places and allow the painting to evolve from the structure of what is recognizable. The challenge is to balance the care needed to make the representation interesting… and perhaps believable, with the freedom, looseness and painterly quality that makes painting so unique and expressive."
Artist reception Oct 5 at 5.30 PM.

Opening Reception Nov 4, 4-6 PM.
Sarah Carson is truly a remarkable photographer with an eye that sees where the rest of us should be looking. She reminds us to look beyond the obvious—to not focus on what everyone else is focusing on. Through Drew, Sarah’s adult son, we really get to know Sarah. She is a mother first, and then a photographer but together…they are artists. The parallel in their works of art is simply… uncanny. Similar images, shapes, likenesses. So many connections you would think that Sarah and Drew worked often in the same studio, rather than on different sides of the country. Are these connections with their works of art coincidence? Are Sarah and Drew connected as Mother and Son? There are also many differences in their work. Sarah’s images are shown mostly in black and white, while Drew’s are in vibrant colors. Drew creates hard lines, while Sarah captures soft natural landscapes. But the similarities are what create the connections and capture the TWO GENERATIONS: Sarah Carson/Drew Carson.
"Soundtracks of Color" is a fascinating survey exhibition of 20 years of works that address social and political issues with respect to sight, sound and color as well as how color relates to our past and how we deal with the issue of color.
According to Halima Taha Ph.D. author ofCollecting Works on Paper and Canvas (1998), Kevin Cole, works in a range of mediums, uses repetitive forms and color to create three dimensional structures that invite those who experience his work to reflect upon abstracted references to a necktie used for status, beauty, fashion and the destruction of human life. She further states that "Cole's work celebrates history, survival, and a personal memory of a time and place."

Born in Caracas, Venezuela yet raised in Oklahoma, she found her language in Dallas, Richardson, and Plano, TX and continues her visual linguistics studies wherever she travels daily. Gaby’s work reveals simplicity in tender everyday moments. Moments captured in translation of an experience. Written digitally and like a telegraph it is put to paper where she becomes the printmaker.
