For nearly a decade, artist Pettus Mitchell has traveled around the United States gleaning inspiration for his future works as well as displaying his art at local festivals and art galleries. His paintings run the gamut from historical portraits of the African Americans migration north in the 1940s to their current return to the modern south. Some of his pieces are inspired by cultural phenomena specific to the late 20th century, such as the popularity of video games and the rise of the digital era. Pettus himself is an accomplished graphic artist; he is also a CGI animator. His work is prominently featured at the Center for Southern Folklore and he is a mainstay at the Center’s annual Memphis Music & Heritage Festival. Mitchell made his first appearance at First Saturday Arts Market in March 2011.

Blue Dog meets Far Side ... would be a good description. My art is whimsical and fun. Sometimes it will make you laugh out loud and sometimes you will smile inside. But it will always make you feel good. 713-816-2877 www.aprilmurphy.com
I have been working as a fine artist for 10 years, showing in prominent galleries in New Orleans, California, and Houston. I am an award winning artist, with my most recent being a ""Merit Award"" at the 2011 International Show at Houston's very own WAS-H. I work primarily in acrylic on a variety of supports, including canvas, paper, and panel. My style is traditional with a modern flair, and my subjects are as various as the day is long. www.davidlloydgallery.com
Since an early age he has loved drawing, animations, music and all kinds of art. He is an accomplished bass guitar musician, and has recorded an album with Warner Music with his own band. Today, he continues to design, create and animate his own characters using computer animation. After years of experience working and teaching in the computer graphics field, he has begun to work hands on with various sculpting media.
I work with Acrylics, Oils, Mixed Media, Metals on Canvas, and Wood Panel to create contemporary abstract works. I love producing textured surfaces; and I use finishes that range from Ultra Matte to Glossy, and now have moved to Resin coatings which are so current. I feel that my pieces are able to be used in a modern way as well as transitional decor and as an eclectic piece in a traditional setting. Photos are unable to depict the true nature of the work because the textures and finishes really make the art to me, so please come see in person.
My name is Shannon McDonald. I'm a Houston area photographer.

Her work has had exposure on Great Day Houston during a segment in which Debra Duncan toured the beautiful home of Richard Eastman, one of Houston's top designers.
I love painting in Acrylic, Oil and Encaustic (Oil and Beeswax). The medium I use is always reflective of the mood I am in at that time. However, you will always see lots of color in my work.
Animals, western, portrait, landscape and more.
CRB Artworks by Cindy Babbitt
I enjoy working in a wide variety of media and currently my main focus has been creating jewelry redesigns (altered art). I greatly enjoy redesigning jewelry as finding just the right components to collage together into one-of-a-kind pieces is exciting! Another focus is embossed metal art (repujado). Working in 36 gauge metal sheets, I emboss my linear designs which I then embolden with blocks of bright enamel paint. I developed this bold style of embossed metal from the idea to keep the designs clear and colorful which results in a stained glass quality in its simplicity. My favorite motifs include the sun, sunflower, and heart. It makes me happy when my work brings happiness to others!
My main artwork media is freehand drawing in graphite and colored pencil. I also work in watercolor and make jewelry and personal items based primarily in using feathers as focal pieces. I accept custom work using your own parrot's feathers in my jewelry items. I also accept custom pet portraits in pencil or watercolor. www.featheredfriendsmementos.com 832-423-9574
My work is Neo-expressionist in nature. I work in Oil Pastel on top of a gouache underpainting. The supports are either paper (framed) or masonite panel on 1 1/2" stretcher bars. I am building a more "market friendly" friendly body of work as some of my earlier pieces are a bit raw and personal.

Most of my work is medium to large scale acrylic, oil pastel, or mixed media inspired by nature with a modern edge. While pieces range from whimsical to abstract, they generally incorporate a high contrast pallette and texture created by layering either paper, modeling paste or paint. I work to evoke a sense of joy or a feeling of connection to flora and fauna. It has been referred to as "happy art".

Basically, whatever I can lay my hand to. I can do a lot with a little.
Abstract paintings in acrylics and oils.
The majority of my work is pen on paper. Their abstract, surreal, sweeping lines from nature often contast against structured lines of society. The multifarious detail is complicated and unique. Though often working in black and white, I find great joy in bright and brilliant colors. I offer both originals and limited addition prints. I also experiment with Acrylics on large canvases, dabble in mixed media, and play the photographer in natural and remote settings. Read more here.
With her love of nature, it is only fitting that Michelle's designs are a direct reflection of nature. Her pieces combine the elements and textures of nature with the use of natural stone, fine silver, sterling and copper often combined with found natural objects like acorns and twigs. Michelle says, "It can happen anywhere. A uniquely shaped leaf, a twig, or an acorn on the ground and I am transported to a place in my mind that I cannot ignore. Until that piece of nature finally is transformed into a piece of jewelry I obsess." “How do I make this wearable art, give it movement, balance, a new life? Should it be a fantastical piece or a piece that can be lived in everyday. I challenge myself to find a way to design a work that eternalizes that fleeting perfect moment in nature with a stylish timelessness.
My designs are original and created from organic or recycled materials. Pieces tend to be asymmetrical with unexpected texture or pattern combinations. Everything is handmade caters to a younger crowd who is always on the go. Earthy hues and intricately simple designs makes my work unique, timeless and practical.
