Featured New Masters

Ursula J. Brenner creates a diverse array of landscapes and contemporary abstracts in acrylics and encaustics, using contrasts in form and color to depict emotion in each piece.

Cedric Michael Cox’s paintings catapult color into rhythmic action with abstract and recognizable images that create compositions inspired by themes in music and the natural world.

Carin Hebenstreit’s technique is influenced by the Renaissance masters and honed through years of study abroad. She has been painting portraits for over thirty years.

Jimi Jones’ paintings defy you to ignore them. They are big, they are stridently colorful, they speak to you immediately and they need your close attention.

Chris Krupinski discovered watercolors in the mid-1980s, and that is when she found her passion. She gives special consideration to detail; the viewer is drawn into the intricacies of her work.

John Leon is a sculptor who works primarily in bronze, stone, and wood.  No matter what the subject, medium, or style he chooses he has a deeply engaging love for the physical and mental acts of sculpting.

David Mueller has been creating masterpieces for many private, state, corporate, and religious collectors since 1989. He shares his artistic passion with his students as they learn of the common denominators to quality design, draftsmanship and rendering in traditional representational art.

Mark Schlachter’s work ranges from diminutive desk top pieces of steel and brass to 10-foot forms for outdoor display that demand attention from passers-by.
