by Orlando Reyna

Artist Statement:

Orlando’s art varies from multi-medium pieces finding his niche in resining of old guitars. Orlando’s pallet offers the eyes a mixture of the bizarre and even the beautiful.  Orlando’s brush technique is self-taught, largely staccato application. His style is notable for his ability to lift darkness out of even the brightest of colors.  (Matt Minor, Fort Bend Herald)

Artist Bio

LOKEY was born in Amarillo, TX. and grew up in Houston, TX. After graduating from The Art Institute of Houston in 1998 and receiving an Associates of Applied Science Degree he went on to attend the School of Photographic Studies in Prague, Czech Republic on a scholarship to continue his studies. He moved to Phoenix, AZ working as a freelance photographer. Around 2002 he focused his photography to fine art and spends summers abroad photographing street photography in Europe.

His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Amarillo Museum of Art, as well the Arizona State University and many private collections.

Lokey’s photographs have been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe including Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania, NAFOTO’s IV Mes International da Forografia-San Palo, Brazil, The Amarillo Museum of Art-Amarillo, Texas, Li Photo Gallery-San Palo, Brazil, Gallery 4118- Houston, TX and Kunsthaus Tacheles-Berlin, Germany. He has participated in several past FotoFest Biennial reviews and exhibited at two participating spaces during 2012 FotoFest.

March 2014 Lokey had a book signing and exhibit of “Texas Quail Rigs” at Meredith Long & Company, Houston, as a part of FotoFest participating spaces.

In August 2015 Lokey moved to Prague, Czech Republic. He is available for hire on projects both in the United States as well as Europe. He is planning on moving from Prague and returning back to his Texas roots by the fall of 2019.

ABOUT THE PROJECT: Texas Quail Rigs

The scope of a vanishing tradition and culture of quail hunting in Texas reaches far beyond the art of photography. Lokey traveled throughout Texas’s quail country to photograph and study the trucks represented in his book Texas Quail Rigs which will be released in March 2014. Each one of the 120 plus rigs is different, and reflects the personality of its owner and builder. His project was an opportunity to ensure a place in history for a tradition that has gone on for decades and is ever changing as the quail population and hunters grow less each year. The photographs are as much a tribute to the unique rigs and their owners as it is to an era of tradition. Lokey’s photographs should be seen as a documentation of history as much as art.

Artist Bio

Sheri Herbert has been in a creative field throughout her life, as an artist, professional photographer, visual merchandiser, faux finisher and now as a teacher at her art studio in Rosenberg, TX.

She believes THE PURPOSE OF ART is not to produce a product. The purpose of art is to produce thinking. The secret is not the mechanics or technical skill that create art – but the process of introspection and different levels of contemplation that generate it. Once you learn to embrace this process, your creative potential is limitless.

Artwork should be an active verb (a lens by which to view the world) not a passive noun (a painting that sits dormant in a room or on a wall). Creativity lies NOT in the done but in the doing. Art is active and incomplete. Always shifting, always becoming. Art is a sneak peak into the future of potential, of what could be. Not a past result of what has been already done. Art is a process not a product. It is the journey, not the destination.

Art is a human act. Art is Risky. Generous. Courageous. Provocative. Creative. You can be perfect, or you can make art. You can keep track of what you will get in return for your effort, or you can make art. You can enjoy the status quo, or you can make art.

Artist Bio:

Ashley Lynn was raised in Amish country. In the rolling hills of rural Southwestern Iowa. The oldest of six Matney children. She grew up raising farm animals, rodeoing, and showing cattle. All the women on her Mother’s side of the family are artists. Ashley taught herself to paint at twelve years old with some hand-me-down brushes and old paint she found in her Grandma’s closet. The hobby became an obsession as the years went on. After graduating from homeschool at the age of seventeen, she went to live with her mother’s family in Spain for 3 years. Coming back to America at the age of 20 she enrolled in school and is currently studying to become a Geologist.
STATEMENT: I love to do all kinds of art. But my preference at the moment would have to be acrylics, and watercolor. I also enjoy making rosaries out of semi-precious stones. I don’t really have a preferred style and like to dabble in everything from realism to abstract. The one thing that stays consistent about my artwork is colors. Very rarely will you catch me doing a black and white sketch. I have to put some pop of color in it. I love to paint things that had some sort of impact on my life. Every painting has a deep meaning to me. A lot of my inspiration comes from Spain. As well as the beautiful Amish country I grew up in.

Artist Bio

Karen Underwood Gehse is a representational artist known for her golf and country club paintings, and New Orleans genre art. She paints in the classical method of layer upon layer of thin glazes, and direct surface painting with fresh, painterly brushstrokes of thick oil paints, so we can feel the softness of fabric, the movement of the golfer, as well as the cold glare of the golf club. Gehse’s series “Golf Moments” was recently exhibited at the Glen Ellyn Library. Her “Imagine New Orleans” paintings are in ongoing exhibits at Heaven on Seven Restaurant, Make It Right Foundation New Orleans, and Fort Bend Art Center.
Gehse is founder, and contributing artist of IArtists, a group of Chicago-area artists who donate paintings to Hurricane Katrina victims who are rebuilding their homes, partnering with St. Bernard Project, Lutheran Church Charities, and Habitat for Humanity. She also volunteers as an art mentor in a junior high school gifted education program.
Karen is a ‘Pro Se’ artist, representing herself and IArtists. She studied painting and art for 12 years at College of DuPage with her mentor Professor Jennifer Hereth. Karen works in her home studio in Katy, TX, and at the Fort Bend Art Center, and is a member of Art League Fort Bend.

Artist Bio:  Rodney D. Butler is a native Houstonian. Graduate of James Madison High School where he excelled at art, woodshop and drafting. After graduating from high school, received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Tuskegee University and later an Associate degree in Computer Animation at the Art Institute of Houston. While at the Art Institute, Rodney realized that he was an artist at heart. This by the way came as no surprise to those who watched him growing up. Rodney’s work has been featured in various local festivals, galleries and museums such as First Saturday Art Festival, Houston Fine Art Festival, the Bayou City Art Festival, Houston Museum of African American Culture Bert Long Jr. Gallery, JoMar Visions, Texas Southern University museum, Harambee Art Gallery, Adam and Madam’s Gallery Bistro Shop, Gallery Baroness and countless underground art shows.

Artist Statement:  I am a modern-day Renaissance Artist, meaning I draw, paint, cook, do architectural design along with digital art, and photography. Now while my paintings are coming increasingly popular, I’m best known for what I call “Green Metal Art” it’s where I take scraps of metal and / or mechanical parts deemed unusable by most standards and weld them into various artistic shapes, forms, figures and concepts. It’s my way of recycling trash into artistic treasures.

Artist Bio:  I let the materials and tools guide me in the creation of my art. The copper plates, the inks, the brayers, presses and papers, the camera lenses and the light of an afternoon sky: all have lessons to teach about how to capture the images I perceive. I have been fortunate to travel around the world and experience its grandeur, from the Great Wall of China to the Duomo in Florence, from the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower in Paris to the Old City in Jerusalem. Photography taught me how to frame what I have seen. Printmaking lets me bring impressions to life in ways that convey their essence. Art is my way of expressing my passion for the adventure.

Artist Bio

Texas based Norwegian artist Marit Nordvik is originally a graphic designer, and worked as such for many years in Norway. Ten years ago, she moved to Singapore and it was difficult to continue with her Norwegian customers because of the time difference. However, she earned a bachelor of art there, as well as doing jewelry design. In 2012 she moved to Houston, and production in Thailand became difficult. A year later she started to try out her husband’s Nikon 300D, and found this both amusing and challenging. She took Photo classes, to learn how the gear worked, but still, there have been a lot of experiments before she found her own style. Now she is taking whatever she knows as a graphic designer, in to a whole new level through the camera lens….sometimes with a little bit of help by Photoshop.  This is her first exhibition, by the way.

In addition, as the curious person she is, she also began to paint acrylic and watercolor three years ago, sometimes combining a mix of medias, but that is for another show……
