Ace of Spades Garden Art
Internationally-recognized artist Alice Calhoun designs and creates elegant, joyful copper faeries, mermaids, and dancers—all designed to add a bit of magic to home or garden. “I grew up in the South where the beauty of landscape is legendary and storytelling is a way of life,” she says. “My earliest memory is of creating miniature, magical worlds and then guiding playmates (both real and imagined) through my kingdom.” Alice travels throughout the United States and Europe to exhibit her artwork, but visitors are invited to walk through her garden across from the Courthouse anytime.

Decorative and Faux Finishes
I am an artist who works primarily in oils, but I also do imaginative ink and watercolor pieces and decorative painting. I am a small farmer who loves nature. I enjoy painting people, animals, and scenes that evoke simplicity, peace, and beauty. I strive to create art that I would want to step into, painting pictures of things and places, and people I would be happy to be with.

Fine Art Photography
William Fields addresses three areas of subject matter in his work—the natural world, things that are man-made and topics drawn from the history of art. Fields says his creative juices frequently are directed to the compositional aspects of a picture. “I concern myself with intensity—the light, the subject matter especially and a balance of all these concepts,” he says. “I strive to present as wide a range of values as possible and feel that this simple idea is key to the success or failure of every picture.”

Using contemporary techniques, textile pieces created by Sheri Hausman are more involved than traditional quilts or collages on canvas. “They are tactile statements,” she says. “By combining elements of photography, fiber, paint, pencil and layers of color, they suggest my story.” Using an image-transfer technique and acrylic paints and glazes, Sheri captures pieces of history and moments of time on whole cloth.

Artur Hohl, who has been a clay artist for more than 40 years, says he is still struggling to create the perfect pot. Each of his pieces is sculptured or formed or thrown on the wheel as a unique piece of art. “From simple pottery dishes to abstract sculptural expression to wall murals to painting on tiles to portraits in clay, I have done it all,” he says. “But the simple bowl with a simple, exciting glaze intriques me most and keeps me going back to the wheel.”

Joey Los creates cheerful, whimsical welded steel sculptures, often enlivened with bright, durable paint. “My approach to sculpture is bold and spontaneous,” says Joey. “Always experimenting, I layer tiny pieces of metal like a quilt and use my welder as a drawing tool.” Joey’s work may be seen at Kunstlerhaus Gallery in Hermann Bluestem Gallery in Columbia. Commissions are welcome. “No job too odd” is Joey’s motto.

Photography and Creative Productions
Margie, who lives at Triple Creek Farm near Berger, has been active in the Hermann community for almost 10 years, working with area artists to photograph their work and build websites to showcase their talents. Her portraits of Hermann Area District Hospital employees for the “people who care” campaign are exhibited throughout the hospital. Currently, her fine art photography focus is on working with texture and light, slowing down, relaxing and capturing a more purposeful image. Living on the farm gives her the perfect opportunity to photograph the many farm animals doing what they do best, making her laugh.

I have always been fascinated with glass and the deep rich colors it offers. To create my mosaics, I cut and chip large pieces of art glass, such as those used for stained glass. The pieces are glued onto a piece of glass to form the design. It is a painstaking process to select just the right colors and depict movement and texture. My mosaics can be seen at The Cottage Restaurant and Gallery; my jewelry is at Seasonal Treasures and Gifts.

Oil Painting and Murals
Julie Wiegand, who has been a working artist for more than 30 years, grew up in the rural town of Chesterfield, in the Missouri river bottoms, surrounded by huge cottonwood trees and miles of farm fields. She now lives on 15 acres of high land near Berger, in an historic limestone one-room schoolhouse, Lyon School Studio. “I express my connection, concern, and love of nature through my art,” she says. “Many of my oils are created plein air, from life, capturing the changing light and surrounded by the natural world.”
