    Pisces (cotton fabric, 19.5″ × 19.5″). One of twelve quilts depicting the constellations and their stories. In Greek mythology, Aphrodite and Eros escaped the sea monster Typhon by transforming into fish, each holding a cord in their mouth to prevent their separation. Pisces is a water sign, with sea-green its color and moonstone its gem. More of the artist’s work can be seen at http://quiltartisannharwell.com/.

    “I love taking photos of pond and stream water surfaces, focusing often on the shape of the water’s surface instead of the reflection. This results in interesting abstract photos varying wildly based on the time of day, weather conditions, and other factors.” More of the artist’s work can be seen at https://michaelblotzer.com/contact.

    Trees Are Oracles (2017, 24″ × 30″), from the Memory Possibilities series. “Arising from a randomly chosen drawing (legacy of previous generations engraved on a pad, as blueprint), the painting reveals itself. Here, trees tell stories in code we don’t understand. How to make a tree? Understand our future.” More of the artist’s work can be seen at http://www.thenuttgallery.com/

    Adriana confronts painting like meditation; only the physicality of the painting materials and sentiment experienced within an instant in time and space command her art-making process. This painting, from her “Of Maps, Cells and Islands” series, is a subtle commentary on the climate crisis. More of the artist’s work can be seen at http://www.agprat.com.
