Jim Lowry: "The world of digital art allows for fantastic freedom of expression. The possibilities are infinite. I love the whole process; identifying dynamic possibilities, overcoming technical obstacles, shooting in many different ways and processing the images with my magic computer."
Additional prints can be seen at Arcata Artisans on the Plaza in Arcata and at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka.

Laura Rose is a potter specializing in reproducing the oldest of human art onto her
raku work. She has become enamored of these images which stand up to any of the finest art ever made.
As she says, "Through these lively animals we hear the direct voice of artists tens of thousands of years old, the earliest connection by far that we moderns have to our ancestors. While we will never be sure of their intent in creating these masterpieces, we do know that they were part of spiritual life and practices and probably of myths, heroes, and constellations.These ancients are speaking to us of their deep love and respect for the natural world and of the everlastingly vital importance of art to the human spirit."
Rose just held a show at the Fire Arts Gallery in Arcata where she does her raku work, and has just returned from showing at the American Craft Council Show at Fort Mason in San Francisco. She is currently working on raku lamps for Old Town Lighting and on cave art works to go to the Highlight Gallery in Mendocino.
