Robert Johnson is originally from Illinois and graduated from SIU, Carbondale. He spent three years in the U.S. Navy, taught school for ten years, and owned Baskin Robbins in Taylorville, for 18 years. Robert has been a full time watercolor artist for 20 years. He currently lives in Park City, Utah.
Artist Robert Johnson paints with high contrast to obtain bright colors. There is always dark black to contrast the vivid colors. The art is contemporary in "nature" with leaves, trees, birds, or familiar mountains as a background. Paintings are usually framed and matted in dark mats and frames.
R.J. Johnson Watercolors provides framed watercolor paintings of western interest, specializing in mountain scenes, aspen forests, botanical subjects, whimsical rainbow animals, or anything of current interest to the artist!
Richard Pick is a native of Wisconsin where he graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison before moving West. For the last 20 years he has resided in Park City, Utah. He has had a lifelong passion for creative nature photography. He has transitioned from processing his own black and white film and making prints in a traditional darkroom to capturing high resolution digital images and processing and printing them in a digital darkroom. He has had the opportunity to study with noted photographers John and Barbara Gerlach, and master printmaker Charles Cramer. His landscapes concentrate on capturing the solitude of the Colorado Plateau. His wildlife images are primarily of the incredible bird life found in Utah. His images have appeared in several publications, notably Audubon Magazine, and Audubon Calendars and educational materials. He has received numerous competition awards.
His love of the outdoors is expressed in his wonderful images. Many of these images take us to places very, very few people get to experience. These are Utah’s remote and wild places. But they are also the places constantly being proposed for resource extraction or development. We need to understand that these wild places are not just something to be conquered. When wild places are gone, they are gone forever; wilderness can only be lost, it cannot be created.
Photography is all about light and time. Nature photography takes patience and persistence in order to capture a beautiful image. Dick hopes that his images give all of us a greater appreciation for the beauty around us. Dick has been photographing since his college days and he continues to perfect his craft to this day.
Karen is originally from Michigan where she began creating art as a young girl with pen and ink, a medium she still loves today. High school art classes brought about oil renderings of rock bands, and an everlasting interest in, and love of, painting. Having had no formal training in art and technique, Karen has created her own personal style which is continually developing and growing, particularly as “happy accidents” occur that spark new “Wow, that’s cool!” moments.
Karen's love for nature drives her life and her passions, and is reflected in her art. She loves capturing the beauty and serenity of nature in painting, photography and drawing.
Karen has commissioned paintings, sold at markets, and has donated work for fundraising events. Shows include a two person exhibit at the Downtown Artists Collective in SLC, the PCPAA exhibit at the Summit County Library, and the anniversary exhibit at the DAC.
Karen enjoys bringing art to the community as a volunteer Community Outreach Member at the DAC. Sharing a love of art with people of all backgrounds, ages, and experience is a passion; seeing the spark of creativity and wonder come from a “blank canvas” is incredibly rewarding.
PASandler is a lyrical collage artist living in Toronto. She creates clever and canny mash-ups of design elements, magazine cutouts, printed images, her own photographs, and celebrated works of art. Fashioned from smudged and torn pieces of paper with ragged edges, her densely layered collages mix beauty with bizarre and familiar with fanciful to create dazzling works of art rich with vivid textures and vibrant colours. A close observer of the human condition, PASandler fashions art statements that are both thought provoking and visually rewarding.
PASandler grew up in Boston in the 1950s. Her father, a shoe designer, manufacturer and retailer had an office in Boston and another in New York. Her mother orchestrated visits to museums and the symphony, and encouraged and inspired her daughter’s acute interest in fashion.
PASandler began her studies at Finch College in New York and graduated with a studio art degree from Marymount Manhattan College. While in school, she got a part-time job assisting a fashion photographer, doing some studio styling and vetting model portfolios. Patti also interned at Schumacher, a textile house in the Design District in NYC.
She moved to Toronto in the late 1970s with her Canadian husband. Originally, she made and sold textile-based art. In 2009, PASandler felt the desire to work on paper with paper. As a natural outgrowth of her other aesthetic practices, she began using her collections of favourite magazines, catalogs, post cards, newspaper clippings and personal photographs to begin creating collages, which were then used as the basis for prints on paper.
Her art practice has escalated in recent years and she maintains a studio in Toronto, along with another studio located in Florida. Her collages are being compiled into a limited edition, large-format artist’s book, to be published soon.
Koru Photo Designs was founded from a vacation inspiration and a drive for what I love: landscapes that take my breath away, and my love for animals.
I believe passionately in travel, good food, good friends, hiking with my beagles and my husband, broadening my horizons with a spirit for adventure.
Koru Photo Designs is proud to support Nuzzles & Co. in Park City, Utah for their hard work in helping find homes for homeless dogs and cats. We also support The American Wild Horse Campaign in their fight to liberate wild horses and burros so they can be free to roam.
As an artist, I look for the unseen patterns and hidden narratives that reveal the magnificence in all things. Robert Henri said, "Paint the spirit of the bird rather than its feathers." There is a still point in every moment and to capture this essential luminescence is to acknowledge the ancient wisdom in all things. I make use of archetypes from the cultural and mystical history that connects all humans and all life forms. Joseph Campbell said that artists are the shamans of our time. I believe that we have the ability as well as the obligation to find and share truth and offer direction to the greater community. It is with this inspiration that I delve into the riches of the collective unconscious and the imagery and symbolism of my dreams to draw out something bigger than myself to share with the world.
I was born and raised in Utah's wild red desert, but have had the great fortune to call many amazing places around the world my home. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, I am as comfortable painting large oils as I am illustrating children’s books. In 2007, I won an International Creativity award in the category of commercial illustration for “The Peaceful Warrior.” My first children’s book, “The Illuminated Desert,” written by Terry Tempest Williams and published by the Canyonlands Natural History Association in 2008, won The Mountains and Plains Bookseller’s Award for Best Children’s Book.

Sean Tyler Young
This is the work of the Utah-based artist Sean Tyler Young. Born in Texas, he has been creating with anything he could get his hands on or mind around.
Creation, passion, joy, and purpose. Pointillism tells a story, yet, never its own. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but how many more will it tell if that picture is made up of 500,000 dots? Every moment is singular, having never occurred in eternity past, never to happen again in eternity future. When a moment is given pause, we can lean in to what something is telling us. When every detail is made known, this singuality can be rightly understood and appreciated, if only we have ears to hear.
As a piece begins to form, from a place, a photograph, or a memory of a place that never was, it begins to dictate the flow of the next part of the story. No piece will perfectly mirror its source, nor should it. A good storyteller knows to let a story evolve for its hearer, on its own time, manner, and emotion, culminating at just the right pace, if ever at all.
Sean Tyler desires for you to wander and wonder, not just within the confines of this art, but wherever life gives you a chance to experience the pause of a singular moment. Make new things until all things are made new.
