Brian Sesack is an American photographer based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As a self-taught artist, he has learned how to use photography as a vehicle for his creative self-expression and for the transformation from looking to seeing. He attempts to create images that bring the viewer into the subject by documenting textures and tonal qualities.

Kate Turek-Frissora has a BFA from Mercyhurst University and is an award winning artist. I specialize in watercolors, acrylics and oils on canvas, and pottery. I love creating surrealistic art and believe my mind resides in those dreamlike states all the time. I also prefer realism and sometimes carry that realism to an extreme in my watercolors with a tightness that is so unlike most watercolorists. Many of my works of art have hidden imagery that not all viewers interpret the same. This allows the viewer’s own subconscious imaginings to slam into their logical world; giving them pause as they try to make sense of their own feelings about a particular work of art.

Ms. Thomas has been drawing and painting since early childhood. This interest continued throughout her college life where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Art Education and Fine Arts. Her interests extended into ceramics, weaving, sculpture, jewelry, and especially batik, which she exhibited in the Ann Arbor Art Fair in the early 70’s. In more recent years her focus has changed to photography and watercolor.

For 12 years, Marilynn and her husband lived on their sailboat in Florida during the winters, occasionally cruising the Intracoastal Waterway and to the Bahamas. This gave her ample opportunity further develop her photography skills and has resulted in much material for her watercolor paintings.

My work in sculptural ceramics, uses clean shapes, thrown and is burnished. The clay bodies I use are Standard 105 (white) and Starworks Ceramics, North Carolina Okeewemee Fine (pink). The pieces are gold fired and horsehair reduced. The carbon from the hair is embedded into the burnished layers of the clay, resulting in translucent planes of line. Each beloved horse that was groomed for the hair, have their own individual oils. The oils add a color to the rising smoke pattern, imbedded into the polished clay. I love the contrast of the meticulous building of the piece, then subjecting it to a fast, intense thermal shock event of the firing.
