Foundry Studio Artists

The Ameristar Gallery is home to the Foundry Art Centre's Emerging Artist Series.
Artists fresh on the art scene can display their work to introduce their style to the local art community. 


Foundry Studio Artists

Studios with open glass fronts on the mezzanine level of the building allow visitors to see artists at work and interact with them as they practice their craft. The artists’ work represents a variety of media, including oil painting, photography, ceramics, and watercolor. Many of our studio artists also teach classes out of their studios on a regular basis. The presence of professional working artists within the building transforms the Foundry Art Centre into a living, breathing arts community. After viewing their work displayed in the Ameristar Gallery, be sure to visit them in person upstairs in their studios!

Zeitgeist Portraits

MAY 31 – JULY 19, 2019

I began this work through a residency at The Andalucía where the public was invited to participate. People were asked to respond physically to my question, posing for photos from which I am creating a series of portraits that reflect our times: Zeitgeist Portraits.

My Question: What is your outlook, response, frame of mind about the current state of the world?

Zeitgeist Portraits is a body of work that communicate a direct, emotional, physical, and wordless reaction to my question. We are most certainly living in “interesting times”. As a visual artist, my way of making sense of, and communicating most authentically about the world, is wordless but not silent. In this body of work my goal is to capture the richness of the human experience through the gesture of our bodies, reflecting intellect, emotions and spirit simultaneously.
