Alcove Fine Art
From the time he was young whipper snapper, H. C. Warner banished youthful ennui by transforming it into a tilt-a-whirl, Wonka-esque cabinet of artistic wonders. Taking the meat of his inspiration from his coming of age in the 1970s and 80s, he continues to translate that inspiration into the characters and worlds that eventually become the hallmarks of his art and vision.
Art of Chris Cumbie
Chris uses everything from broken tape measures to animal bones to turn discarded objects into art. His mixed-media art is created using the techniques of hand carving, painting, welding, illustration, whittling, assemblage, sculpting and wood burning. By rescuing other people’s “junk,” his art preserves little pieces of history.
Arts Kinetic’s approach to jewelry design is as an artist, anthropologist, treasure hunter, philosopher, and a social commentator. His techniques use everything from carved wax, deconstructed watches, cameras, mixed metals, gemstones, to graphic images. Arts Kinetic challenges conventions and serves to raise fundamental questions about style and beauty.

Just a chicken and a dream…
