Sue McElligott

Sue McElligott was born in Sacramento, CA in 1964.  McElligott began painting in 2006, but has always been around the Arts world, having her poetry first published when she was 8 years old.

Using predominantly acrylic paint and sometimes adding mediums including tissue paper, buttons, and other items around the house, McElligott also chooses to paint over her work  multiple times to get a desired textured and layered effect.

 

McElligott’s influences are varied, but she has always admired the works of Picasso, Pollock, Van Gogh, and Matisse.  Always interested in painting, McElligott simply bought the materials needed one day and begin making art.  Music is a must to have on while working in her studio.  Choosing the music that motivates her at that moment is essential to what ends up on the canvas.

 

McElligott moved to Nevada City, CA from the Sacramento area with her husband and pets in 2000.

Dylan Sherwood McConnell

Philadelphian artist Dylan Sherwood McConnell obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1993.  He has since stitched a story ark between East and West Coasts as a working artist, creative director, and composer.

His recent relocation to Nevada City in September of 2010 has precipitated a bold shift in content and materials culled from the area and has produced a prolific body of new work inspired by its unique geographic space.  Always process driven, these new pieces seek to address the bond of temporality and to establish an analog between interior / exterior spaces.

Glaciers have long been the poster child of climate change.  I have always been drawn to their massive size and the impressiveness of their ever-changing state of grace.  When I finally had the chance to see glaciers in person, I was even more impressed.  I am constantly in awe and now, more than ever, feel like glaciers are as much alive as trees and people.  This collection of images tries to capture the beauty of these beasts while serving as a reminder that climate change is real and glaciers all over the world are shrinking at unprecedented rates.

From salvage yards and garage sales come the dreamscapes for the creations of unique and personal sculptures, home furnishings, and design.  Inspired in part by the discards of our world, and also by the bounties of nature and beauty of my home at Big Star Ranch, turning junk into treasures is my passion.  From my home to yours… enjoy!
