sometimes gets confused about what role she is playing which day. She has several short stories published in e-zines and magazines, including Starry Night Review, Terrain, Carve, and Citizen magazine. She has an extensive collection of pulp Westerns from the fifties, and her own writing and visual artwork often dip into the genre’s style. She has been a featured reader at the Phoenix reading series, Sunday Salon, and the Atomic reading series. She has been the recipient of residencies and fellowships for her work on her novel, Loveland, and she really hopes that she can finish it soon and begin work on the next one.

B.A. Bosaiya

B.A. Bosaiya

We have come to see the world as devoid of mystery, and with these images I hope to restore some sense of wonder about the world around us. There was once a greater sense of mystery in the world sailors of long ago would tell tales of mysterious beasts in uncharted areas of the flat Earth. Hand-drawn maps had vast areas marked as “Unknown” and the darkest corners were marked with the wondrous phrase, “Here there be Dragons.”

Those days are gone now and the deep, dark secret places exist for us only inside our minds and in our imaginations. These photographs ask viewers to examine their interior lives, the secrets within themselves. My photos can act as a mirror into the viewer’s unconscious mind. One thing that can be said for certain is that my photographs provide an instantaneous visceral reaction in almost every viewer. I want the images to do this, to encourage people to look into their interior lives, and to become aware of the mystery and beauty of the world around them. www.bosaiya.com

Kathy Braceland

Kathy Braceland

Pen & ink artist and cartoonist Kathy Braceland, was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. She started drawing as soon as she could hold a crayon. Kathy attended her first art class when she was 6 years old. "I remember it well. The teacher held my painting up to the other kids and went into great detail of how no one should ever paint like that." That same year she entered her first art contest at Forest Heights Elementary School and won 2nd place. She was told she would have won 1st place but she had too much detail in her art.

While continuing to draw, she expanded her artistic abilities and started writing short stories and poetry. In her early teens, she began playing soprano and tenor recorder professionally and soon picked up the tenor sax, alto sax, clarinet, flute and guitar.

When Toronto's Second City comedy troupe set up shop in Edmonton, Kathy got a job working with the actors of SCTV as the manager of the club, as she was interested in learning the business end of the art world. Wanting to learn more, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the music industry. Almost immediately, she started working as business and financial manager to Chick Corea and Isaac Hayes, which she enjoyed doing for over a decade. It was while working with Hayes and Corea that she decided to pick up her pen once again. For the past two years, Kathy has been busy with her pen & ink drawings. Her diverse style ranges from abstract to surrealism to realism to cartoons. Some of her most popular work is her skeleton art.

Kathy also draws one-panel cartoons for several newspapers across the U.S. Because of the vast popularity of her skeleton art, she did a cartoon series called KEEPING UP WITH THE BONES! which showcases a family of 'living' skeletons living a 'normal' life, in a very tongue-in-cheek manner.

When called upon, she teaches art classes to dyslexic children in Northridge, California. The kids love her work and are particularly eager to learn how to draw little cartoon skeletons, which Kathy happily obliges.

She says her largest influence is her mom (pronounced "mum" in Canada), who always encouraged and supported Kathy with all her artistic endeavors. "My mom is my biggest fan. She still has all my drawings from when I was a kid."

Jean Detheux

Jean Detheux

After more than three decades of intense work with natural media, Jean Detheux had to abandon painting a few years ago because the paint fumes were killing him. He is now working on ways to create digital 2D animations and images that are a continuation of his natural media work (focusing on fortuitous accidents and "inherent composition"). He has been teaching art in Canada and the U.S., and has works in many public and private galleries in Europe and North America. His films are now appearing in film and animation festivals around the globe.He also lectures regularly, in English and French, on the phenomenology of vision and the genesis of images (animated or still, digital or not), and has written numerous articles on those and other subjects available online http://www.vudici.net.

 Jared Gutekunst

Jared Gutekunst

I was born in San Francisco in 1972 and raised in Santa Rosa where I studied painting and printmaking at the Santa Rosa Junior College. In 1996 I transfered to the California College of Arts and Crafts (now known as the California College of the Arts), where I received a bachelors degree in painting in 1998.

I work primarily in oils, though I've been known to dabble in acrylic. Yet my subjects tend to remain the same: semi-surrealistic, baroque stage sets populated with erotically charged human figures, fantastical animals, historical allusions, and personal symbolic objects. I tend to work slow and methodical, sometimes employing traditional glazing techniques, and other times contrasting that with cruder, modernistic drips or loose brushstrokes. I am constantly exploring new ways of painting, however, and where this will lead my work in the future is anyone's guess. WEBSITE: www.artgoblin.com

 Marty D. Ison

Marty D. Ison

Machines are now surrogates for almost everything human. The standardized initiations of mass culture are replacing our intimate journeys of perception. Technology alienates us. Arts that inspire discourse unite us. So remember, create something that people will talk about.

Marty is a painter, a poet, storyteller, parent, peace propagandist, and general purveyor of prevarications that enrich the lives of others. An Ohio native, he was transplanted in the Florida sands of the Gulf of Mexico where he studied fine art at St. Petersburg College. His novels With a Glass Hammer, Zero's Lizard (coauthored with Ron Barnhart), Taste of Pennies, and Servicing the Machine: a Postindustrial Nightmare are available to interested agents and publishers. Among other places, his words appeared in the Painted Moon Review, Frigg Magazine, the Beat, the St. Petersburg Times, and the bathroom walls of Wendy’s fine restaurants everywhere. You may view some of his plastic work at www.martyison.skyedragon.com a website graciously provided by the playwright poet Paddy Gillard-Bently.

Mattthew Skenadore

Mattthew Skenadore

THE DlViNE BAT SWAN WiTH SQUARE FEET AND THE PARADOX OF AN INCOMPREHENSIBLE MEANING

"From the beginning man has created art not perhaps to please others, but to express the feelings and emotions of soul and spirit whose suzerainty is the inner world.

Within ourselves we are all so very vast that without the use of symbols to condense the meanings of the multitudinous emotions and feelings of this inner world the explorer could very quickly become lost.

By positing a dichotomy, direction and destination become realizable and by familiarity the inner landscape becomes a laboratory for the study and synthesis of experience into meaning."

The above quote is from Matthew Skenandore whose work will be on display in the sanctuary beginning March 1. He will give a brief talk on the painting above the altar after church March 13th and a longer discussion on his other works at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 22nd in the sanctuary. If you have any questions about his art you can call him at 827-8287. And if you don't have any questions about this quote you are a lot smarter than the secretary!

Mattthew (the third T is silent and the Q is invisible) Skenandore has unusual brain chemistry and or pretensions of mysticism. Prone to fits of clarity, Mattthew paints some.
