Johnny Vera

Johnny Vera enjoys various forms of art on his spare time such as performing in the theatre, comic book drawing and digital coloring, and photography.  In his Smoke Art Photography, Johnny takes photos of smoke trails from the tips of an incense stick then he goes into Photoshop where he flips them, rotates them, mirrors them, and tries to see what patterns, forms, or shapes that they are taking.  Finally, he adds a splash of color to them for his final product.

Candy Hahn

Candy Hahn is a mosaic artist, based in Port Lavaca, Texas, who began creating mixed-media mosaic artwork in 2009. Candy explains her work, “Mosaics and mixed-media mosaics are my niche. I love taking things we see as broken, such as shards of glass and tile along with found or discarded items, and bringing them to life in beautiful new forms. We do the same thing in our lives, and mosaics are the perfect medium for us to visualize the beauty that can come from imperfection.” Candy specializes in using photographs as a model to translate images into custom mosaic projects.

Candy’s artwork was recently highlighted in a Mosaic Art blog titled, “Composition and Correcting the Model,” by Joe Moormon, artist.
Three of Candy’s pieces are currently on display at The Hive By Bee Cave Arts Foundation in Austin, Tx.

Christopher Gamblin

Hello everyone my name is Christopher Gamblin I am 44 years old and I’m an artist my artwork is all original and unique. I believe art is perfect chaos. Art is an escape into one’s own mind. Creating new artwork is therapeutic for me. I use a variety of medium from markers to gel pens to just a regular #2 pencil. I find inspiration comes from almost anywhere and could be anything. I appreciate all the support and enthusiasm. Thanks so much.

Ceramic Artist and Crafter
I believe it is important for everyone to explore and embrace their create spirit. Coming from
an engineering background, I struggled for many years to find an artistic outlet. While in
school, I wrote poetry, took some watercolor classes and played piano, trombone and French
horn. Most of my artistic endeavors took a hiatus while I raised a family. About 10 years ago,
my love of music was rekindled at the Old Settlers Music Festival. A pottery class at Victoria
College 8 years ago kick started my desire to explore 3D art. Currently I am immersed in
creative endeavors! My husband and I host Weaver House Concerts and I am on the Victoria
Fine Arts Association Board. I have created my own home pottery studio and have my own
wheel and kiln! I am making pottery, jewelry and wooden art and have participated in the
Victoria Downtown Art Walk and several artisan markets. My goals are to continue to improve
the quality of what I create and to contribute to the creative vibe in Victoria. I have met some
amazing friends on this journey and want to build community and encourage others.

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.
