Joining The Mix in October of 2012 , Artist Victoria Eubanks crosses between the two worlds of digital and manual design, using a variety of tools, including pixels, paint brush or heat torch. She is currently working almost exclusively with encaustic paint. She enjoys the physical aspect of working with this medium as it involves all the senses, and provides a way to use all of her technical, visual and creative skills.

Rachel Basye is a printmaker who primarily creates intaglio artist prints. She works with light sensitive polymer plates which allow for extremely fine details. Through a process called chine colle, she often incorporates paper and other elements into her pieces.

Kathy Berenstein is a self-taught sculptor and painter whose style is both sophisticated and whimsical. She enjoys experimenting with line and shape using different media, including paper mache, acrylic, rock, decoupage, chicken wire and mosaics.

Pat Lickly’s ceramic art interweaves her passion for graphic symbolism, travel and clothing. She hand builds her decorative clay pieces, allowing for endless possibilities of shape, texture and free form expression. Her multi ethnic ceramic Robe Series and Mandala Series were inspired by trips to Asia, Central and South America. Her latest works are of clay incorporating metals with patinas.

Ceramic artist & painter Paula Romero Schmitt is inspired by nature and architecture and enjoys capturing the line of organic objects. Her ceramic works are formed from blocks of clay and are finished with mason stains, glaze or cold finishes. The smooth white clay captures the subtleties of colored stains like charcoal on paper and allows her to work to a thin and delicate state.

Randall Sampson is primarily a self-taught artist concentrating on figurative ceramic sculptures. With a background in metalworks, though, he is currently exploring the interaction of clay and metal, particularly enjoying the unpredictability of inducing an iron oxide "bleed" from metal to raw clay, and the imagination, in turn, sparked by that most natural of processes.

Gallery owner and multi-disciplinary artist Niza Knoll received her formal training in painting and graphic design at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Before becoming a full-time visual artist she had two rewarding careers as a graphic designer and a teacher of painting and photography. The gallery hours are Wednesday-Friday 1-5 pm, Saturday, 1-4, First and Third Friday 4-9 pm. The Mix Co-op in the back of the gallery is also open for visitors during regular hours.
