Christopher Allen

Visual arts: Painting, Mixed Media, Abstraction, Print-maker, Collage, Figure Drawing, Portraiture

The artist earned a BFA from the University of Mount Olive in 2012. He has taught collegiate-level art & design, and now works full-time as a Project Manager while pursuing his creative passions in his spare time. Through illogical configurations of a common style of stained-glass window found among non-affirming South-Eastern churches, Christopher’s artwork invites the viewer to experience adverse feelings stoked by the religious bigot’s irrational contempt of his sexuality.

<p>A maker who enjoys working creatively with a variety of media and techniques. Love for modeling can be seen in works completed in every media. With clay; patterns of color, texture and metallic bling brings a bit of folkish flair. Modeling with charcoal, paint and mixed media, on the other hand can yield expressively modeled realistic images. People, pets, florals and folk patterning appear repeatedly and so could be considered favorite subjects, all of which are fashioned with love.</p>

Visual arts: Paper cutting, Painting

When I created my first stencils 30 years ago, they were a means to get paint onto material. Once I took a picture of a stencil and discovered the beauty of the paper. I like to find the character in the faces of subjects for my cut paper portraits turning the things we try to hide into things of beauty. My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look at faces in a differently, to feel emotion for the people in them, and to help them find beauty in something as simple as a piece of paper.

Visual arts: Photography

Photography has always been a passion of mine. In 2015 I began to display my work. I am just now beginning an ETSY store for my photos in an effort to broaden my horizons. I hope to focus my efforts for a strong presence within the art domain. I believe that kodak moments find you and not necessarily the other way around. Landscapes, nature, abstract and cultural imagery tend to fill my camera lenses.

Visual arts: Ceramics

The objective of my artwork is to simultaneously create decorative and utilitarian ceramics. When artwork is functional, people establish a different bond with it, and I take pleasure in being a part of that. I strive for flowing forms, vibrant colors, and intricate surface patterns that give the piece accent lines for its form. My inspiration comes from colors, repetitive imagery, and organic patterns found in nature. I am also interested in the high contrast of black glazes with pops of color.

Dedicated Men of Zion

Music: Sacred Soul

Harmony is serious business where the Dedicated Men of Zion come from. The group’s eldest member, Anthony “Amp” Daniels, remembers how serious harmony was to his mother. Every day, she would call her children inside, turn off the television, and make them sing in harmony, talk in harmony, do everything in harmony. Singing well together was a virtue that she and her sisters had learned from their own father, and Anthony passed it on to his own children.
