    Memphis, Tennessee Mezzo fresco artist Tom Clifton focuses on the fusion of color and texture, creating a Mezzo Fresco-sculpted plaster featuring sheer watery acrylics, floating one hue over another. While his themes vary, they all resonate from his world of discovery. Utilizing the techniques made popular by 17th century artists, Tom adapted the mezzo fresco process to canvas. Beginning with a plaster base, he utilizes sculpting and drying techniques to create the desired appearance. The pigment is then applied to the nearly dry plaster. Tom, who is a self-taught artist, has been a part of the Memphis art community for more than thirty years. His paintings are a now a part of numerous collections including private collections throughout the North America and Japan. His work also has been featured on HGTV. He is co-owner of T Clifton Art.

          Memphis, Tennessee

          N.J.’s distinctive creativity blossomed by watching her father Yancy paint in the middle room of their shotgun home. Where, as the third born of nine children, N.J. used tempera paint to scribble pictures on the windows. She’s since traded in the tempera for acrylic, and window panes for canvas.

          Her primitive style of painting, heavily influenced by visits to her Grandma Sarah’s house in Coldwater, Mississippi and other country relatives, often reflects the dichotomy of city life juxtaposed with rural traditions and stories. These stories transferred onto the canvas, typify slices of life during the sharecropping and civil rights eras marked by the adroit use of emotive colors, folksy compositions and poetic titles. J.J.’s subject matter and style are often compared to renowned artists Carroll Cloar and Clementine Hunter.

                Maggie Grier oil paintings (Birmingham, Alabama)

                Maggie Grier oil paintings reflect her years as a self-taught painter and her passion for discovery and design. She received her bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama, Birmingham. Painting for several years for her own enjoyment and selling her work through local shops and decorators while working in engineering – yes she designed hydraulic power units and valve systems – she made a change. In 2005 she made painting her life’s work, and she committed herself full-time to the pursuit. She paints at her studio just outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Her studio companions are her pup, her bunny and more fur babies.

                Maggie’s style incorporates watery-thin layers of oil on canvas which creates a great depth to her paintings. Her recent collection is inspired by fantasy works as an uplifting approach to our current times. Maggie’s travels reflect in her paintings as well. Please visit the gallery for the complete collection of Maggie Grier paintings.

                            Nashville Abstract Artist Bitsy Hughes

                            Having a great love for the beauty of the many places she has traveled, Bitsy Hughes’ artwork reflects what she has seen and what she has felt in this world. Her painting style has been influenced over the years by several artists with whom she has studied with and by artists’ works that she has admired. She is extremely fascinated by the use of color, both vivid and neutral, and seeks to depict that fascination in her works. She loves the European landscape, the seaside marsh, and the everyday floral arrangement. Seeking to make these subjects “sing” on canvas is her ultimate goal in painting. She approaches her work with humility and awe, knowing that she has years of work ahead and much to learn about color and the definition of beauty. Come see the works by Nashville abstract artist Bitsy Hughes.

                              Artist Jeannine Paul was born in Paris, France, and is a Holocaust survivor.  She first studied art while in hiding at l’ecole de la Petite Republique in Sevres, France, during World War II. Marriage brought Jeannine to Memphis as her husband was a doctor at Le Bonheur.  Having now lived in Memphis for more than fifty years, she has continued her art studies at Memphis College of Art. Her paintings are inspired by her travels and joy for life.  Jeannine’s paintings are as vibrant as she is.   There is a lot to Jeannine’s 90 years of age.

                                From her humble beginnings as an avid sketch artist and doodler curled up next to her father as he poured over his plans for his air conditioning business, Catron has spent the past twenty years as a painter, answering her inner call to create beauty and introspection that will eventually end up both inside and outside of homes and offices.  An abstract artist working in a base of acrylic layered with other mixed media, she strives to create a piece that invokes the viewer to see something different every time they walk past it.

                                Entirely self-taught, Catron paints with acrylics, watercolors, coffee grounds, sand, and graphite;  basically anything she can get her hands on to bring her optimistic and energetic personality onto the canvas.  She uses brushes, her hands, cardboard, spatulas, forks, and spoons to create the layered effect that is signature to her work. She gains inspiration by allowing herself to become deeply attuned to the natural world, and then uses music to tune in to that inspiration as she creates.

                                Catron’s work can be found in the homes and offices of many private collectors, including Turquoise Condo in Orange Beach, several showcase homes in Dallas, Little Rock, Mississippi , Tennessee and was a featured artist in Legends Magazine in 2013 in her home-state of Mississippi.

                                In 2016, Catron made the leap from Brandon, MS where after a little bit of settling in (moving three times in the first year) she has finally found her little slice of heaven just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.  In a turn of the century home, surrounded by neighboring horses, she is now fully grounded and making her mark in her new surroundings with exhibits and installations at  Studio 208 as part of the Nashville Art Crawl, and the new 505 Building.  She is also soon to be featured on the exterior street-level windows of the iconic AT&T building in downtown Nashville.

                                If artist block should ever set in, you can find Catron out in nature, hiking, kayaking, or horseback riding, readying herself for a new burst of abstract innovation.

                                  Bend, Oregon

                                  A painter since her childhood on Long Island, Dee McBrien-Lee spent several years of college studying Fine Art at SUNY New Paltz and graduated with a major in Psychology and a minor in Fine Arts and Women’s Studies. Shortly after college, she moved to Colorado and has spent most of her adult life in the west. A career in Sales & Marketing lasted into the early 2000s when she once again began to find time to explore her art. Western and Americana style paintings with an emphasis on horses were the primary focus for McBrien-Lee’s early work. In 2007, Dee and her husband moved to Bend where the art community was vibrant but without many opportunities for an emerging artist. In 2010, Dee became a founding Partner and Artist at the Red Chair Gallery in Downtown Bend and remained with the gallery through 2018.

                                  Evolution for her began with a feeling of restlessness in 2012. With a passion and interest in moving towards abstract art, McBrien-Lee began to take classes and workshops which enabled her to break out of the self-imposed boundaries of the Americana style she had been working in. Since that time, she has focused solely on various forms of abstract painting utilizing acrylic and mixed media. She occasionally adds collage to her work and paints both representational and non-representational abstracts.

                                    Charles finds his inspiration from European and American impressionist painters – the application of color and value in order to create an image in the viewers mind without depicting each detail of a scene or model. Charles feels that art should stimulate some memory or emotion within the viewer, something that causes one to pause for a moment and to literally have an encounter with the specific piece of art.

                                    His interest in painting began in McComb when his mother gave him art lessons in the fifth grade with the late Margaret Cain. Years later while in medical school, he dabbled with oils and continued to paint on an intermittent basis until his wife gave him a series of lessons with Dianne Norman of Jackson, Mississippi. He is a former member of the Mississippi Artist Guild, and his paintings have won several local awards. His painting of the Café Du Monde won a national award at the annual conference of American Physicians Art Association.

                                    Dr. Guess does some painting outdoors but because of time constraints he usually uses photographs as a basis for a painting. He does his own photography as it is important to have a feel for the location and to have a better understanding of what is in the shadows and surrounding area beyond the framework of the photograph. He keeps two cameras in his van as he is always on the lookout for a pleasing or interesting scene. He has began to experiment with variations of color and some of his pieces lean more toward abstract. He enjoys a variation of style.

He creates three-dimensional work by making a wooden frame and structure and using painting processes to embellish the form. Larry’s work stems from his architectural education background and his love of the urban and natural environment. His work can be found in private and corporate collections around the country.

                                          Mel describes her approach to art as a contemporary constructivist. Her thinking is based on metals and their layers – colors that can be built up and scratched or sanded away to reveal another texture softened like a lingering abstract memory.

                                          She fabricates her enthusiasm for natural vistas with her sculptural paintings and jewelry. While she doesn’t always know ahead of time what her artwork will reveal, she knows she has no choice but to look beyond the surface.

                                          Mel has maintained a solo studio for more than ten years in Minneapolis. During this time she has refined her skill via formal training as well as experimentation. However, it is her childhood days spent living in the country that she feels are the greatest influences on her art. Having spent hours picking up rusty nails on her family’s sandy, hilly driveway after a rainstorm, she says that she can still see the rusty textured layers – the burnt orange, sienna, and sometimes a hint of blue-green patina. This corroded metal intrigued her and still does.

                                          Today, Mel is featured in art gallery collections across the United States.

                                            Craig started his journey in pottery at the age of 16, when he started experimenting with clay on an abandoned pottery wheel at his school. Self-taught, what developed was a lifelong passion for ceramics. He is known for testing the limits of clay and adapting his studio and skills to push the medium both in size and with his glazes.

                                            “I start each day with the same intent: To create the finest piece of ceramic art that I possibly can. What I am doing as a potter is creating a canvas for the crystalline glazes, to establish a synchronistic relationship where the glaze and the pot complement each other.” ~Craig McMillin

                                              Erin’s art career started with sketches of the cartoon Speedy Gonzalez that she sold at recess. After an intense high school art study and a discouraging Art teacher, she chucked her art dreams and went Business School at University of North Carolina.

                                              It took 10 years of office job security that finished at a major healthcare corporation for her to realize that the corporate career track wasn’t for her. She would rather chase after risky-no-one-makes-it, non traditional, exciting life.  Challenge accepted!

                                              Erin is self-taught, and following a plan of no-plan because something magical happens when you do so.

                                                Over the past few years, Pat has been distracted from painting while helping Broad Avenue redevelop. With key initiatives accomplished such as the Water Tower Pavilion, she has resumed her studies of color.

                                                Pat’s current paintings have been inspired by the interactions and diversity of the urban core – life in neighborhoods. How people interact – or don’t – are reflected through her use of colors and movement within her paintings.

                                                Pat is co-owner of T Clifton Art and godmother to Argus.

                                                  “I am inspired by views and reactions to places and spaces from both imaginary and actual experience; such as a body of water, a wild storm, a vivid dream. These works are spontaneous reactions to memories and feelings from my life. My images are mapped with marks, lines, and color, both expressive and linear. Color and line are essential in the communication of my work. After the painting is completed, I add a thick layer of UV protectant infused high gloss. This gives my work another dimension by adding reflections of the outside world to the work.”

                                                  Sharon was born in Mount Carmel, Illinois, and grew up in Kansas where her art interests began, spending countless hours watching her mother paint. She started out at Kansas State University with a different degree in mind and then switched her classes to art history, drawing and painting after a visit by her mom who handed off her art supplies. Sharon began to experiment and then found she could not stop…she had finally found her passion. She now lives in St. Louis with her children and an assortment of furry critters.

                                                  “I create images, both from nature and from within, bringing the vision to form through my use of color, composition, and texture. My finished pieces communicate a strong and vivid emotional statement on canvas.”
