Farbe ist Alles #3 | Acrylic on canvas | 36 x 36 x 1.5

Featured Artist | Robert Frankel

Featured Artist Robert Frankel | Wilmette, IL @robertfrankelart I was always fascinated with the idea that colors can have an effect on our emotional, physical, and mental states. Examples of this can be found in the expressions, “seeing red” or “having the blues. I like to use bright bold colors set against each other in a geometric structure to create energy and…

The Pools of Cryptomnesia (or the stars journey through Pisces to Aquarius) | Acrylic | 24inx30in

Featured Artist | Mitchell Pluto

I am inspired by accidental arrangements, pareidolia and dreams . These effects produce a quality of consciousness that makes art a magical journey for me. Much of my work is automatic , it happens while I do it. I enjoy this process of discovering a narrative. When I’m not painting, I’m busy making hand made jewelry.

Chutes and Ladders | Acrylic and mixed media on panel | 12x12 inches

Featured Artist | Katie Willes

Katie Willes is a self-taught abstract expressionist. Her degree was in Chemistry, but her art education started in museums across Europe. With a passion for art herself, Katie’s mother took her to museums on every vacation and weekend trip during Katie’s teenage years, when Katie’s father was stationed at an Army hospital in Germany. Katie’s love for art continued and she takes her own children to museums in every new city and country they visit.

Despite her appreciation for art, Katie always thought of herself as a left-brained person. Her interest in abstract was piqued with her first visit to the MoMA in New York. When her oldest went away to college and studied art, Katie started painting as a way to connect with her. That sparked a passion that has blazed like wildfire. With an innate eye for color and design, Katie’s paintings also reflect her optimism and happy personality.

Featured Artist – Kyle Rehm

Kyle Rehm has been painting for over 35 years. He won a 4 year scholarship to MCAD (Minneapolis College of Art & Design) in 1985, but was unable to use it. This didn’t stop him from pursuing what he’d already committed to. At 17 he had the idea to create work that would be a one on one collaboration with the viewer. To create a more personal and intimate experience. He wanted the work to reflect differently with each member of the audience, like music. Music isn’t easily described or interpreted, yet everyone has a deeply intimate attraction to it, because of the imagination. Kyle wanted to create this experience in his work. To do this it had to incorporate all the ideas of art into one form. His idea was Imaginism, and the simple definition was this; Imagination delineates art through interpretation. This gave the viewer complete control of interpretation. In order to do this he had to create works that were enigmatically ambiguous, and yet welcomed the imagination in an intriguing way. He achieved this by his use of the line. This allowed the imagination an overwhelming number of possibilities. By doing so it also gave each viewer room to find a uniquely authentic interpretation that would evolve and change, and become more and more personal with time.
