Artist
Larry Ellingson

My visual work is a kind of additive sculpture, combining assemblage, painting, photography and fabricating. Some pieces have lights and sound. I’m also a sound artist, composing, performing and producing music utilizing electronics, saxophone and found sound.

It’s fun to make stuff that’s interesting to look at. Finding new ways of seeing the commonplace seems like a good idea to me. Many of us daydream and wander through our imaginations. I bring back souvenirs.

Artist
Joshua Martel

I paint contemporary abstract and realism. I like to paint large animals and people depicting emotions, through their character. This is a strong way to capture peoples attention and has become my favorite way to tell a story to the public. I strive to stimulate and bring forth new thoughts within the communities I paint in, as well as showcasing their community to bring a sense of pride, joy, and momentum. Art is the universal language that all can understand to some shape or form. My goal as an artist is to use this language to help create positive change that this world deserves.
