Ellie HaroldFLIGHTS OF FANCY: OIL PAINTING
Ellie Harold
Since Ellie Harold started painting in 2003, she has primarily been a landscape artist, painting Michigan barns and lake shore scenes in oil. In November 2016, following a trip to Mexico, birds unexpectedly started migrating to her canvases and an entirely new body of work began to take shape. The current exhibit, Flights of Fancy, features birds in colorful, light-filled works. The birds represent the lightness she associates with qualities of joy, hope, healing and inspiration she sees as a source of personal well-being.

Cat CrotchettUNDER COVERS: ENCAUSTIC & MIXED MEDIA
Cat Crotchett
Cat Crotchett’s current work combines elements of Eastern and Western cultural patterns in fragments that together form something different than their individual parts. These images represent an intersection of information as well as ideas of cultural appropriation, assimilation, fragmentation and alteration. Crotchett uses wax because it is relevant to both Eastern and early Western artistic cultures. A professional artist for over 30 years, Crotchett has exhibited nationally and internationally. She is a professor at Western Michigan University and lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Steve & Ann LovelessPHOTOGRAPHY INTO FIBER: ARTPRIZE WINNER
Steve & Ann Loveless

Steve and Ann Loveless both grew up in northwestern lower Michigan and love the nature and beauty of the outdoors. Steve is a fine art photographer, and Ann is a textile artist. After exhibiting some of Ann’s textile designs inspired by Steve’s photography, they had the idea to create works that morph a photograph into a textile. One aspect of the process is that it can trick the viewer into questioning what they are seeing and invite them to engage more with the work. Northwood Awakening, a 25 by 5 foot piece that was the ArtPrize 2015 Public Vote Grand Prize winner, will be on display.

Laura CavanaghTHE CUT UPS: PAPER COLLAGE
Laura Cavanagh

Laura Cavanagh is a Michigan native who graduated summa cum laude from the University of Michigan in 2011 with a BFA in Art & Design and a minor in Art History. Cavanagh’s work consists primarily of cut paper and mixed media. Working with these materials allows her to approach her work in much the same way a sculptor does: adding to and cutting away from. Cavanagh finds the artistic process to be deeply meditative. Cavanagh lives and has her studio in a historic home in downtown Rochester, Michigan.

Gregory PotterWHEN PIGS FLY: OIL PAINTING
Gregory Potter

Professional artist and instructor Gregory Potter believes that anyone can develop artistic skill if they put the work into it. Potter's teaching helps with that, but he also shows his paintings in art fairs, galleries and even Army barrack walls, anywhere people enjoy art and laughing out loud. A flightless bird, his flamingo isn’t deep or subversive, but it does have a top hat and is riding on the back of a zebra that is standing in a nest powered by a propeller. Nothing unusual for a man who served four tours in the Middle East. Working in his home gallery in Franklin, Indiana, he is amused as viewers sometimes see his animals as “above all the B.S.” or “leaving without knowing where [they’re] going.”
