Play Ball by Damian Radice
I am a lifelong resident of Colorado growing up in a rural neighborhood near Grand Junction. I spent my childhood exploring the bank of the Colorado River and the dessert beyond. As far back as I can remember I wanted to be an artist. In 1973 I completed my associates degree in art at Mesa College, in Grand Junction. I am an all around artist who enjoys working in bronze, fabricating steel, as well as clay and oil paints. I still believe that drawing is the fundamental base of an artist.
Price: $ 6800Resurgence by Chris Hecker
Resurgence is an accumulation of lost objects that were previously thought to be of no use or value to those who discarded them. The sculpture is intended to celebrate second chances and the beauty that can come from it. The fire extinguishers create a 8 note wind chime that ring in random order depending on movement from the wind.

These same ideas have compelled people Through out time and were frequently expressed through their art. Sue’s use of artifact imagery reminds each of us of the many constants in the human drama..

Perplexity by Tim Gates
Although reminiscent of a butterfly, the inspiration for this piece was actually a meandering stream in circuitous tranquility . The stream has been a reoccurring theme in my work as a metaphor in life's journey
Mobius by Richard Ferguson
A Mobius is a two dimensional mathematical shape twisted into three dimensional space. There is only one “side”; if you follow the surface of the strip it goes all the way around, with no “inside” or “outside”. Similarly a Mobius has only one edge. I have always been intrigued by the Mobius and it’s shape.
This fascination and sometimes obsession with these wonderful flowers continues unabated to this day, providing inspiration for artists, gardeners and collectors everywhere.
High Hopes II
Georgene McGonagle is noted for her eclectic work creating life-size children to stylized animals, finding a unique delight, a spirit in her sculpting, which is reflected in her work. She feels that by creatively using her heart, as well as her hands, she can contribute to the enjoyment of others.
Price $ 7,500
Projection By Maureen Hearty
Projection is a flower built from scrap steel with intricate plasma cut designs on the petals. The flower gracefully balances on a projecting triangle as if the flower were bring projected out into the world.
As humanity developed and became civilized, they needed more goods, more services, more things, and because they demanded more things, people needed a way to bring these to them and to take others away. Born was the pipe infrastructure. All kinds of pipes doing all kinds of things. I got to thinking one day - what if some people got caught in the pipes centuries ago? What would their society be like? What would these people look like?
