SANDY BURR - PHOTO ENCAUSTIC http://www.sandyburrphotography.com/
A transplant from Connecticut, Sandy has lived in Nashville for almost 15 years. For many years she worked as a graphic designer and she now draws on those skills when composing her photographs.
Recently, she has been combining her images with beeswax and creating photo encaustics. She prints her images on different types of Asian papers and adheres them to wood panels. Using a large palette knife she adds multiple layers of encaustic medium (beeswax and damar resin) over her photos that adds depth, texture and luminosity. The result is a timeless and durable piece of art.
VINCE WALLACE - FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY https://www.vpwallace.com/
Vince has been exploring abstract and travel photography for several years, and find the unlimited variables of light, color, and form a continually fascinating subject of which he will undoubtedly never tire.
As most creatives, he has been "doing" art since the earliest years, and has focused on photography in the last couple of decades. The current water series is something he will continue to explore and enjoy immensely for not only it's abstract qualities but it's deeper philosophical connotations as a sustaining elemental force in life.
His formal education is in art with a BA from the University of Texas School of Visual Art. His work has won recognition at exhibits and in shows around the states and is in private collections around the country.
