Theme for October: Dreams & Nightmares


We all express ourselves in different ways. Our Theme wall this month will show how our artists see inside their dreams.

Featured Artist

Sue Burger

There was a time in my life where I was afforded the opportunity to travel through Mexico, Canada, England, and Europe. But, the greatest impact on me and my creative efforts was traveling through the American southwest. Business and pleasure had taken me to New Mexico and Arizona on numerous occasions and became my source of inspiration. After relocating to Boulder City, NV in 1997 I have been able to focus on these interests more intently, and Arizona and New Mexico are close by.

As a child I created 3-D dioramas using construction paper and cigar boxes. I would drool at the windows of the miniature Thorne rooms in Chicago’s Art Institute. As an adult I moved into an occupation working with architects building scale models and interiors. That three-dimensional interest has always remained with me. I have taken my love of the material culture of Southwest, and all things Native, and made them into three-dimensional objects. Right now it’s turning gourds into Indians.

I do enjoy painting in watercolors and acrylics and manage to get back to them from time to time. And, there are other things I want try but must hold a tight rein. I think many artists suffer from the same affliction – we want to try everything.

Our visiting artists for October will be:

Featured Artist

Cindy Smith

Cindy Smith was born in Denver, Colorado and still calls Colorado home for most of the year. As a young high school graduate she was prompted by her father to go to school to be either a secretary, nurse, or teacher—the accepted career choices for a young woman in the 60’s. It was suggested that she should at least get her MRS degree if she went to college. So, in the fall of 1965 she went off to Colorado State University and much to her father’s surprise, eventually earned a degree in Business, Data Processing and also met her future husband George. She and George lived in Summit County, Colorado for eight years and had an adorable baby girl. As a stay-at-home mom, Cindy dabbled in all sorts of creative endeavors from, quilting, macramé, leather work, toile painting, stained glass, crocheting and knitting and most of all throwing pots. While her daughter was in preschool she spent many hours at the pottery studio at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge. She also spent many hours at craft shows selling her work.

When Cindy and her family moved back to Denver in the early 80’s she went to work in the corporate world. Throughout the years she worked as an IT Manager and Customer Service Manager to name a few jobs and although these jobs kept her more than busy, in the back of her head there was nagging feeling that she missed the creative part of her life.

In the late 90’s during a family vacation to Santa Fe, Cindy fell in love with some beadwoven bracelets she spotted in a gallery. In usually Cindy fashion she said “I can make those.” So, fifteen years and a room of beads later, she really can make those. An early retirement has given Cindy time to pursue what she has found to be her true calling -- weaving tiny little shiny seed beads into beautiful jewelry. Each one of a kind little treasure takes many hours of work and is her passion. These days when she’s not beading she’s teaching beading classes in Colorado and in Mesa, Arizona where she and her husband now live part of the year.

Our visiting artists for December will be:

Theme for January: Nudes

Featured Artist

Roxann Beckman

My name is Roxanne Beckman and I have a tremendous affection for everything that is nature. I have had a serious interest in art and photography since I was a young child. Using my brownie box camera to capture the images surrounding me always filled me with anticipation and wonder as I waited for the finished photographs to be developed. In high school I worked at expanding my knowledge of all things photographic, including darkroom and enlarging techniques, and black and white imaging, by taking after-school and weekend classes, as well as high school graphic arts classes. At the same time I was developing a love of painting and drawing and often did sketches or acrylics of friend’s boats, cabins, etc.

My art pursuits took a back seat when I was bit by the flying bug in college, and I devoted my time and resources to becoming a professional pilot. My career in aviation has afforded me the opportunity to visit a great deal of this beautiful country and photograph much of her spendor. About a year ago I decided to devote as much time as I could to the redevelopment of my art in the hopes that I may, at some point, be able to pursue this creative endeavor as a full time vocation. Although I have always enjoyed working with my hands, only recently have I found myself developing a love of wood working as well. In combining these two interests I have begun creating both original mirrors and picture frames which incorporate many of the elements of the southwest such as saguaro ribs, copper and turquoise. Each of my mirrors is an original; and each frame is created in harmony with the photograph it surrounds to complete a unique package showcasing the story each picture tells. I also make one-of-a-kind tables, trying to incorporate many elements of the southwest in their design.

Living in the desert southwest inspires me in my creations, and I hope that you too will enjoy the works that I create.
