Angelita Martinez

We can't get enough of the amazing colors, brushwork, and figural explorations of Angelita Martinez. She is creating a her own, new narrative for historical themes and figures.
Angelita Martinez is a Seattle artist, with a focus in painting and drawing. She attended the University of Montana, studying two dimensional work and became passionate about art language, styles, and movements.  She and her family relocated to Seattle WA 2012. Angelita exhibits her work in Montana, Washington, Nevada, and Oregon. 
Angelita Martinez works mainly in acrylic paint, color pencil, and ink. She mixes styles, color, timelines, cultures, or classic mythos/lore, to create a new appropriated story...with a teeny dash of ethereal interstellar flatulence.

Emily Bayless

Functional and sculptural ceramic pieces with nods to history and culture ; Emily Bayless creates a beautifully intriguing world with her work. We particularly love her use of glazes and varying textures.
Emily Bayless received her BFA in Ceramics from Arizona State University in 2011, and received her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2015. Her work has been exhibited across United States and she has given artist talks at the San Francisco Art Institute, Dickinson College, University of Florida, and Adams State University. Currently, she is an instructor of ceramics at Millersville University. She lives and works in Lancaster PA.
Emily begins to describe her work with notions of humor and vulnerability, stating, “Fake it till you make it. Challenge shapes me. I’ve had to fake it more often than I will admit to you. I embrace the faux, like imitation crab, it is the same, but different. Though, I must admit to you, I’ve never had imitation crab. Is it the same?”
