Evie Valenzuela

 

My name is Evie Valenzuela. I have four children, one grandson and have been married to my greatest supporter, Michael Valenzuela, for 31 years. I have worked as a medical lab technician in Victoria for the last 29 years.

Though I have always loved art, I have never considered myself an artist. Ceramics classes since 1999, first with Bill Bauer and now with Gerry Bernhard, have fueled my current art passion with clay. I mainly throw on the wheel and love the carving techniques I have learned at Victoria College’s CE ceramics class, specifically using engobe and  mishima.

My paintings are what I see where I live, chronicles of my life you could say. I began painting many years ago, mostly oils, some watercolors, studying with Herma Turpin.
Then after a long hiatus to deal with life, I started to paint again, this time with acrylics. Nothing was safe during the re-start. I painted my husband, my grandkids, my dogs, my horses but finally concluded, I preferred Mother Earth’s offerings the most…with a few mermaids thrown in for good measure. Recently, I am enjoying doing “petite peintures”.
I enjoy the interaction of a show and look forward to visiting with you during the Downtown Art Walk.

Gail Dentler

I’m an artist based in South Central Texas.  I am documenting in art, natural food sources consumed by hummingbirds as they migrate through Texas.  These plants are found in our gardens, landscapes and are naturally drought tolerant.  I am creating these botanical illustrations as a way of conservation for this big beautiful planet upon which we live.   I have botanical prints for other cottage garden splendors.

  I have received a BBA from Sam Houston State Univ. and an MAE from Texas Tech Univ.  My work has been shown in juried competitions such as Handweaver’s Guild of America Assoc., “Small Expressions”, Bernina’s “Quilt for a Queen”, in the UK, and “A World of Beauty”, International Quilt Association’s International Quilt Festival.  Currently my work is in two private collections: Bernina’s U.K., “Quilt for a Queen” and “Love Ewe”(photography) with Texas Tech University’s private collection, exhibiting at the Hill Country campus.  I have been juried by Cara Manes, an assistant curator of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York for the Houston exhibit:  Assistance League of Houston “Celebrates Texas Art 2020.”.

Brea Lara

Brea Lara is an artist from Victoria, TX, Her art is fueled by her passion to empower herself and those around her and ranges from illustrations, graphic and logo design, to mixed media art pieces and pyrography. The art she creates is heavy in symbolism and tends to focus on duality. It tells the story of various stages of the process of self discovery and sheds light on the dark recesses of the mind. She has over 10 years of experience in print media as a screen printer and graphic designer and has a BA in Applied Arts and Science. In her spare time she loves to work in her gardens with her husband and tend to her cat children and feral colony. Her and her husband actively protect and socialize the ferals in their neighborhood and provide veterinary care to them as well. She loves Halloween, the dark and macabre, unicorns, and sci-fi.

Metallic Grandma

Metallic Grandma? What’s that? It may sound like a geriatric rock band, but it’s not. I jokingly call myself the Metallic Grandma because I love to paint images of things made of metal (cars, planes, trucks), and I’m a proud grandma of two grandchildren.  I also paint seascapes because they are so soothing.

I have painted on and off for most of my life, but began to take it seriously two years ago. I do commission work and have sold while exhibiting in the Victoria Art League gallery.

One of my favorite things is watching the connection people make with one of my paintings. I hear lots of stories! And of course it’s wonderful to see a painting go to a new home where it brings a smile everyday.  So drop on by during the Artwalk. I’d love to meet you!      Cindy Tharp

Wow you’re actually reading my bio? Thank you! My name is Michael Sanchez and I come from Magnolia Beach. I have been making art since I was a child and as you can see I’m continuing to do so still today. Cartoons and caricatures are how I’m trying to start my professional career as an artist. My goal is to get my name out to as many as possible and further my artistic career. With God as my guide and my light I forge ahead. God bless all of y’all.
