MugGlugs - FOR SALE
Sponsor: Phil & Linda Brugger – Twin Falls, ID
Venue: Garden of Artists
I like to sling mud, kindly. Actual pottery mud, aka, clay. I learned about wheel thrown pottery in my 50's and have been playing in the mud ever since. I enjoy teaching others the art of slinging mud at Hands On in downtown Twin Falls.
This year I offer a quintuplet of Cone 5/6 Porcelain forms for A&S 2021 called MugGlugs, variously sized and shaped vessels with facial features. All five spout off, two have a handle on life, and all are faced with an emphasis on whimsy. These MugGlugs are a variation on Folk Art Face Jugs and were requested by my sponsor.

Big Horn Sheep 12" x 16", framed – FOR SALE
Sponsor: Rex & Cheryl Leforgee – Twin Falls, ID
Venue: Great Harvest Bread Co.
I am a colored pencil mixed media artist. I’m skilled in various art mediums; however, colored pencil and Turpenoid is my favorite.
My painting process is unique. It involves combining solvent with colored pencil and then painting with a cotton swab.
I love to create art that communicates the spiritual renewal, beauty, and humor that can be found in the simplicity of animals and nature. I find these things very healing.

Woven Wool 8 Harness Coverlet Queen sized – FOR SALE
Sponsor: Suzanne McCampbell – Twin Falls, ID
Venue: Habitat for Humanity ReStore
Born in German, Doris learned to spin and weave from her mother, but these primitive skills were of little interest to the adventurous woman. After living in numerous countries and many states in the United States, a thousand bleating sheep stopped Doris in her tracks and implanted her in Idaho, rather than her Montana destination.
While living in Idaho Doris rediscovered skills. She spins, weaves, knits and felts beautiful, fashionable and collectable works of art.

Victorian Glass 33” x 18”
Sponsor: Times-News/Magic Valley Media
Venue: Rudy’s – A Cook’s Paradise - 147 Main Ave. S.
I have enjoyed beautiful stained-glass art for many years. The first stained glass that made a lasting impression on me was a rendition of the famous picture of Jesus praying in the garden the night before his crucifixion. The natural sunlight coming through the many colors of glass was a breathtaking experience for me.
Some 30 years later I still love admiring the work of other artists and creating my own.
This work showcases the Victorian era with vibrant colors and fluid curves.

Amor Propio
Sponsor: Five Fish Press – Twin Falls, ID
Venue: Float Magic
Amor Propio in English translates to self-love. The concept of this piece was created during reflections of how one self-loves and practices self-preservation. It focuses on the importance of prioritizing yourself and finding ways to nourish yourself. It asks how one can continue to find healing in their daily lives, through the food that we make, the music we listen to, to how we romanticize ourselves.
We all deserve to feel loved.

Becoming the Moose 32" H x 14 3/8" W – FOR SALE
Sponsor: Curtis & Mardo Eaton – Garden City, ID
Venue: Bull Moose Bicycles
I have loved working with clay since I was 12 years old. It started with my Uncle Tom bringing home a bag of clay and we went to work sculpting a wise owl.
My tethers to inspiration come from being a wilderness river guide and an avid outdoorsman. I resonate with how mysterious, revealing and diverse nature is while stumbling around in the outdoors of Idaho. This gives me courage to explore in my art and narratives of the natural rhythms in life, death and belonging, leaving a collectible trail of art with stories.

Texas Longhorn #1 5’ x 8’ x 6.5’ – FOR SALE
Sponsor: Bob & Linda Sojka – Twin Falls, ID
Venue: KMVT
When I was a young boy, I dreamed of ranching and rodeoing. As a teenager the dream became reality. I rodeoed, riding bulls and bucking broncs, both saddle and bareback. I also worked on ranches and drew cowboys riding bulls and bucking horses every chance I could. I enrolled in Fort Lewis College in Durango,CO in Farm and Ranch Management and after taking several art classes, I changed my major to Fine Arts. I graduated with a BFA from the University of Texas in Austin and then pursued an MFA from the Maryland Institute
College of Art. I returned to Texas and began teaching art at the college level and in public schools for over twenty years. While teaching, I began building a body of work, both paintings and sculpture, that combined my interest in ranching and the relationship between man and nature in the American West. I often use images of cattle in various mediums to illustrate that balance. I also use other animal images to address a growing concern for the natural world and its declining wildlife populations due to the ever-expanding human population.

Pause...and Rewind Mannequin- 6x2 ft – FOR SALE
Sponsor: Mike & Jan McBride - Twin Falls, ID
Venue: Colliers International
As an artist, I strive to create clothing that is unique, fun, and tells a story. The pandemic brought about an epiphany in how I view art and the piece I created. I started thinking about sustainability and self-reliance.
I wanted to create an upscale piece of fashion utilizing recycled and repurposed materials. The result, a dramatic and striking corset and skirt constructed out of VHS tape, scraps of metal, and washers. A reminder to “pause…and rewind.”
