Trent Alvey is known as a mixed-media artist who uses painting, sculpture, light and sound technique in the creation of works that have been called both “pop” and “contemporary”. She holds a BFA from Westminster College. For this body of work “Emergent Collages” Alvey uses prepared painted paper surfaces, some magazine images, portions of her own printed photography and some mark making, tearing randomly, then proceeding from whatever the shape suggests. ”I like this way of allowing subliminal characters to emerge spontaneously, suggesting an emotional and narrative familiarity. A Series of Singular Events —the work compels you to find the humor or the relationship with the creatures.”-Alvey
Teresa Jordan is a creative tour de force. Raised as part of the fourth generation on a cattle ranch in the Iron Mountain country of southeast Wyoming and has written or edited seven books about Western rural life, culture and the environment. With her husband, folklorist and public radio producer Hal Cannon, she has created a series of radio features for “The Savvy Traveler.” More recently she has been involved with the National Cowboy Poetry Gathering and the Conference on World Affairs, turning many of her “open road” experiences into stories which she tells live on stage without notes in a storytelling tradition as old as Homer.
Jordan received her BA in History from Yale University in 1977 and later a BFA from the University of Utah in 2002. This exhibit features paper cuts, and oil paintings of her beloved sheep.
Meri DeCaria’s work continues to delight viewers with playful shapes, complex color combinations and spirit de vivre. Drawing inspiration from the images and patterns of ‘60’s modernism, and using the fluid forms derived of the occasional doodle, she assembles fragments into abstract compositions.  She received her BA from the Philadelphia Art Institute & the American College in London and has been at the helm at Phillips Gallery for the better part of its being/her lifespan.
Suzanne Storer, "Young Man", Ceramic, 18 X 18 inches
Suzanne Storer was seduced by the magic of the potter’s wheel at an early age, propelling her to earn her BFA at the California College of the Arts in 1971. Her ceramic sculpture in relief combines her enduring love of form, line, clay and the human being. She understands that our oh-so-human qualities reside in our own uniqueness, characteristics that each one of us has spent a lifetime developing. Her wall sculpture gives us a fresh contemporary perspective into our present human condition.
She is featured in the current quarterly magazine of the National Sculpture Society which focuses on contemporary relief sculpture. The magazine's extensive review of her work remarks that she is breaking new ground in the historically rich genre of sculpture in relief.
