Renate Kasper
February 6 - March 5, 2016
For three decades, Renate Kasper has worked in a wide variety of media including acrylic, oil, watercolor, pastel, Prismacolor pencil, black & white infrared photography and clay.
Her favorite medium has always been the graphite pencil. She mixes other media with the graphite, but still calls her work drawings. "I may paint the background entirely in acrylic," she says, "and I may lay a quick wash of color all over the paper before I start shading, but I regard those few minutes of work as negligible when I spend dozens or sometimes hundreds of hours shading intricate details with graphite.”

Vorakit Chinookoswong
Feb. 6 - March 5, 2016
Seabrook artist, Vorakit Chinookoswong, known as V. Chin, has been crafting fine porcelain and stoneware pieces for over 30 years. A veteran of art festivals and gallery shows throughout Texas, Chin creates glossy stoneware vases, bowls, cups, and other pieces bearing his signature mark: a clay frog. Striving for a balance between aesthetics and function, Chin's goal is to create "good" ceramics. His subtle glazing adds an extraordinary level of elegance to his pottery.
