Deborah Dal Zuffo
Born in New England, Deborah was inspired by the rich palette of autumn colors. Her love of the outdoors is reflected in her paintings. They are bathed in nature’s hues, revealing her training in botanical illustration. Deborah’s artwork often focuses on the simple – leaves, rocks, and the creatures hiding within -- capturing nature’s tapestry of texture, depth, and life. Deborah works in watercolor, pastel, and colored pencils. Her artwork is on display at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.
Earl Thompson
Earl Thompson drove big rigs across country for 50 plus years, always with great appreciation for the beauty and majesty of this country. After retiring at 75 years of age, and with time on his hands, he sat down and began a process of expressing himself on canvas. His favorite works are black and white drawings, but he is exploring colored pencils and paint.  Earl also makes many of his frames.  See Earl's work at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.

Nikki Crain
Nikki first sat down at a loom in 1983. She has been on a learning odyssey ever since. Her favorite pastime is designing new pieces and playing with colors, sometimes dyeing her own yarns. Math plays a big part in weaving and Nikki takes it to a higher level by using the Fibonacci sequence in many of her designs. Natural fibers such as cotton, wool, silk and rayon are her favorite choice for the beautiful and useful items she weaves. Nikki's weaving will be on display at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.
Christine Sell Porter
Christine's medium of choice is oil, by virtue of it's versatility – it's perfect for building texture and produces brilliant color. Watercolor is another medium that she loves for it's spontaneity and transparency. She has painted for over 30 years. After relocating to Three Rivers in 2005, she has found the natural beauty of the area to be a new source of inspiration. She spends many happy hours in the studio. Christine is a multi talented artist; she also likes designing little jewelry pieces, and knitting gorgeous scarves during long winter nights. For summer, she hand paints, in vibrant color, flowers and birds on silk scarves. Additionally, she creates lovely light catchers for the window, fashioned with antique glass and with an oil rubbed copper foil finish.  See Christine's art at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.
Bertha Garza
Bertha Garza had a dream about creating a natural product that would help protect and enhance all types of skin, especially elderly skin.  She created a body lotion that was enriched with the healthiest oils and vitamins, thus creating the name. “DAZZLING DREAMS NATURAL PRODUCTS”. She added (liquid and solid) bath soaps made with the finest natural oils. Natural and biodegradable laundry soap, natural dishwashing soap, pure soy candles, and other products have followed. Meet Bertha at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.
Carole Clum
Carole Clum has made metal sculptures of kitchen goddesses, dancing chickens, and other animals from kitchen utensils, tools, costume jewelry, and machine shop discards. The art form is called "found object art."  See Carole's creations at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.
Joyce Blackwell
Inspiration for my work is Mother Nature as a whole. Pottery is my first love because it is amazing how the earth can be clay, molded into beautiful usable and decorative objects.  I make one of a kind bead embroidery jewelry using many materials. Fabric arts is another avenue I explore.  See Joyce's art at The Three Rivers Union School Gym, 41665 Sierra Dr.
