.Jim McKnight I have been a resident of New Hope Township for nearly forty years, and most of my work is based on that long term connection with its landscape and people. Mostly self taught, I have worked in pen and pencil, pastels and watercolor for many years. Since stepping down as co-owner of Gimme Shelter Construction in Amherst, I have been able to focus more on studio time and to consistently push my skills. Every piece is a reminder of how much there is to learn, yet every piece opens new doors. I work mostly from on-site sketches and photographs, often finishing in the studio work that has begun in the field.I have always been fascinated that a painting or drawing can stop time and represent a unique perception in time for the artist, yet can also convey other information and emotions to viewers beyond the artist’s own conception. At its best, it can be an infinite expansion from a single idea, each viewer enlarging the sense of the piece, perhaps we could call it the Big Bang Theory of Art.
Dagny Arlene Heig Born in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada, I inherited my drawing talent from my Norwegian Mother and a love of language from my Irish Father. While pursuing a nursing degree, I studied art at the University of Minnesota. I am the perennial student! I love to draw! There is no “right” subject, whatever is around, I will draw. Drawing is a meditative process for me both calming and energizing.
Ann Wright After thirty-five wonderful years of working in Colorado, my husband and I now call Amherst, Wisconsin, our home, and our new place of working. While we loved the wild west, the draw to come back to our homeland was great. We are presently surrounded by many friends, some whom we have known all of our lives, and by many artists of all sorts. We have been working at being artists since 1970 when we first opened our studio and Gallery in Elizabeth, Colorado. We have gone through many transitions including selling the gallery in 1982 and concentrating on selling my paintings through well-established, professional galleries and museums primarily in the southwest. In 1993 we moved to an adobe home and studios we built in Redstone Canyon to the west of Fort Collins, Colorado. Living and working on the 5000 acre ranch was a dream as the cattle drifted about, bears perused the wild plums, the mountain lions admired our chickens and the garden grew—-and the rattlesnakes admired our porch. In 2005 we sold the place in the Canyon and came here to continue our work in art. Both of us still sell in galleries and museums but we like to think we are more relaxed and less inclined to deal with the above wildlife of canyon living. Life here among the lakes and forests has been and is inspiring and most pleasurable—and that includes the fantastic micro-brewery right here in this charming village.
Jaime Sherf- Raised in Amherst, I’m a local gal who absorbs myself in an array of artistic adventures. I specialize in using texture and color to give the old a little something new. On any given day, you’ll find me knee deep in paint, fabric, yarn or paper crafts and, quite possibly, all of the above. I love being able to help people share the uniqueness of a handmade gift. When I’m not creating things, I’m watching the Brewers, spending time with my adorable nieces or planning events for a local summer camp.
