Susan Goldsmith
No. 151 Acacia © 2010 Susan Goldsmith

Susan Goldsmith’s work is inspired by the beauty of nature. Her photographs of trees are on the walls of her studio. She builds up the surface on the canvas or panel with translucent layers of acrylic paint, applying it with her hands rather than with brushes. Subsequently, she uses many layers of translucent oil paints, continuing a process of layering and glazing. Luminescent paints and metallic powders add an unpredictable radiance that varies according to the viewer’s perspective, much as how colors change in nature based on different times of day or how the wind modifies the effect of sunlight on leaves and branches. For the past year and a half she has been creating mixed media resin pieces. These paintings combine four techniques – gold, silver or copper leafing, pigment prints, hand painting, and layers of resin.

Nancy Hom
A Future for Our Children © 2010 Nancy Hom

Over the last 33 years, Nancy Hom’s work has been mainly for community events and causes. Her experience as an immigrant, mother, community leader, and spiritual seeker provide the framework for her visual and literary pursuits. Best known for her silkscreen artwork, she has created numerous iconic images for community events, as well as political and social causes. Her poetry and prose have been published in several publications and her art has been exhibited in numerous galleries, most recently at the de Young Museum of San Francisco. She is currently a freelance curator, grant writer, and arts consultant for several non-profits in the Bay Area. Most of her art consists of serigraphs, but later works include mixed media, combining silkscreen, watercolor, colored pencil, acrylics and other media.

Larry Richardson
Poor Icarus © 2010 Larry Richardson

As an artist, Larry Richardson has always wanted to express the beauty in his African heritage. Color and line give a deep sense of emotion and movement. Many of his paintings are an extension of the classical form of figurative painting, making statements on culture and the human condition, while others parallel classic statements made by artists of the past. He has a unique vision of the beauty of the African Diaspora, which resulted in contributions in many parts of the world. His ultimate goal is to blur the lines between race and art, stimulating thought and heightening the awareness of those who view his figurative images. He has earned many awards for his work, which is collected by a divergent group of people.
