Mary Baxter    more info


Mary Baxter moved to Marathon in 2002 and opened the Baxter Studio and Gallery in the old Shoemaker Hardware building, where she continues to make and sell her work. She uses a vintage Silver Streak trailer that allows her to live in more remote locations, where the smaller paintings are done ‘en plein air’ and the ideas and sketches are gathered for the large paintings that will be finished in the studio.

"My Concern as an artist is to discover a personal vision through nature. The landscapes I paint are new and old places I have traveled that have a magical, sacred quality. The rugged beauty of the South West has captured my heart and senses like no other place. I feel that by painting the landscape I celebrate its awe inspiring beauty."

“Typically, I’m trying to use brighter colors than are found in nature, but still seem believable to me. I am also balancing different elements in my work to make a more interesting scene.  Whistler said, ‘I’m improving on nature.’  That is very close to what goes on when I am working.  It is very much a chess game.  There is a lot of deliberating, chance-taking and moving pieces around.”

“I have always been drawn to nature - it is my livelihood, my recreation, my comfort, my home. It is who I am and what I know best. I hope you enjoy my art and find a connection that is meaningful to you.”

"There are few Austin artists I admire more than Flato . . . . Flato overlaps pale smudges of color — like layered crepe paper — mirroring the play of light, the diaphanous quality of water and the thickness of greenery in western landscapes."

"The immediacy of plein-air painting is exhilarating. I can see and feel the enormous sweep of nature with all elements in motion. In the studio, my approach is as direct as when I am working in the field. I have painted on the remote coasts of Ireland, Nova Scotia, the Pacific Northwest, as well as Tuscany, New Mexico, the Texas Hill Country and Gulf Coast. Many of my paintings might be called "skyscapes," as the infinite space and illumination of the sky are key to my compositions. I love to move paint and color in response to the challenge of natural form, space and light."

"In the work of both of my painting and sculpture, my effort is to emulate my fondness for nature, phenomena and convergence, as a means to discover orders and structure."

Jan Heaton       more info

Jan’s watercolors offer a personal viewpoint that celebrates nature, and then abstractly reach beyond the obvious. Heaton’s watercolors are inspired by the structure, color, line and pattern of elements in nature that are often overlooked. Her work isolates details and exposes the viewer to an everyday object or place seen from a new perspective. She incorporates her background in calligraphy and graphic design to create sensuous and abstract organic forms.

"...learning, changing, exploring, absorbing, (still). Redefining form, color, and light, (over and over again)...and then again there is the interest in nature, and the nature of people, that draws me to put pastel to paper, paint to canvas."

"
I like to take seemingly insignificant artifacts of life and celebrate them. Discarded objects and plant material ready for the compost pile as well as more expected still life objects are my subjects. Through arranging them in various relationships and sequences, I question the nature of brevity and permanence."

"My painting process relies on direct observation and natural light."

"I can divide my current landscapes into roughly two groups, the vistas and my “little building paintings” or “suburban scenes”. The vistas are about space and atmosphere. The suburban scenes are about intimacy and the beauty in the familiar.

An artist’s job is to convey a sense of the world that is unique and at the same time universal. If I can speak to that through an evening sky over a flooded field or sunlight on a paint peeled garage door I feel I have succeeded."

J. Mark Kohler    more info 

Mark has spent the last 13 years traveling the American West from Texas to California and from Arizona to Montana. "Everywhere I've traveled, I've had the good fortune to meet hard-working, decent men and women who are following a life-style that is, at the same time, both noble and disappearing. It's my privilege to chronicle their struggle to keep the tradition of the West alive.

"I like to think of myself as an interpreter between two cultures: a representative of a remnant society that still exists within the larger urban clamor of the American scene. In the past, my work took a turn for the narrative and every thing I saw seemed to have a certain mythological resonance.  At the time, I felt it was a way to take a new look at the old myth of Texas ranch life. More recently I find that I have eliminated the human narrative entirely, and that examining the beauty and the solitude of place are sufficient expressions of my presence."

"It’s all about color and contrast, line and design; it’s all about celebrating the infinite manifestation of our world: subtle transitions, acrimonious juxtapositions, positive and negative spaces, fluidity and stasis and; it’s about balance, walking the razors edge."

"A moment in nature is my usual inspiration for a painting. Everything in nature is in a constant state of change. Whether the variations are dramatic or subtle, there are evolutions every year, every day - every moment. I can't capture all of them, but hopefully, at the end of the day, a few of them will become pieces of art and will be memorable in some small way."

Matt Morris    more info


Matt Morris is a partner with nationally acclaimed Lake/Flato Architects in San Antonio. He was made a Fellow in the American Institute of Architects in 2006 for his design and artistic sensibilities. While crafting a career in design as an architect he was busy studying the built and natural environment on paper and canvas as an artist. It is impossible to separate art from architecture so Matt blends his analytic rigor as an architect with the fluid expressive nature as an artist. The results are an expressive landscape presentation like no one else.

"This work represents a visual interpretation of the effects of light on a variety of subject matter.  Experimentation with the direction applied on these subjects has created an avenue of expression which explores the aesthetic relationship between painting, music and poetry."

I enjoy what strong, natural light does when it illuminates objects. -- Jane Wells

"I am a painter. I see everything in terms of what it would look like as an oil painting. When something brightly lit catches my eye, I sketch the shapes I see, record the colors and take a photograph. In my studio, I lay in large areas of color, pushing the oil paint back and forth, manipulating it into a balanced composition."
