Daniel Oliveira - My art is about line and space / chaos and order. The search for this visual metaphor drove me into working with stone. I start by looking at each rock to seek for it's inner structure. These sculptures result from a similar building process, where the intersection of lines cut through the irregular formless matter revealing a secret structure embedded within each individual stone. By doing so, a new visual dimension created by matter and the absence of matter is revealed, as if each sculpture was made of individual building blocks organized to create an abstract entity or system and the combination of these units were the key to what defines the sculptural shape and ultimately the original untouched rock, as a group of things or parts connected in some way so as to form a whole.

Donald Mccray - I tend to focus on everyday observations of the world, real and imaginary. I want to make what I hope is a strong visual statement that will stand the test of time. I have a fondness for working in black and white as a tribute to the early masters. As I have said previously, print making is my favorite form of art; mainly because, you have to be a proficient draftsman, understanding line quality, texture, form, pressure, shade, tonality, perspective, design, surface tension and irregularities. My old professor (Lee Baxter Davis) at East Texas State University never let me forget figure ground relationships, and his theories for sequential values. The other side of my artistic palette is very comfortable when working with color, relationship, and harmony. My main desire when working with traditional , or digital photography with no digital enhancements is to capture a moment in time , and space. I am inspired by atmospheric depth, movement, design, lines, and shapes. I also enjoy the more experimental side of creating photography with a simple pin hole camera; also known as, a camera obscures. The creative thrust that I am trying to express is of paramount importance, and always at the center ...
Don Smalley - This man does not use the spoken language as a medium for communication. His world, his word, his art and his mind are expressed in the body of stones. Years ago he heard the Buddhist phrase "Only don't know!" These words, which in Buddhism might be called a turning phrase, point to the awakening of the non-conceptual mind. This state of mind seems to have opened within Don a state of truth and spontaneity- without formal teachings in Buddhism or any other spiritual discipline. He does not want the conceptual mind interfering with the creative process, or with the mysterious ground of direct understanding that informs his sculpture. Each moment, each work can thus be approached with an open and clear mind. Don does not want his work and his experience to be characterized by language, yet in direct conversation with that which is immediately before him. He enters into a dialogue with stone. Don quietly speaks of times of struggle, and grants that these times have given him determination and strength, turning him towards his own interior consciousness. His ease with solitude and his sense of self-sufficiency have fostered in him an atmosphere of stillness and ...
