Artist Statement

When creating an original work, my process begins with me trying to dissect, or deeply explore someone, something, or some situation in great detail. I like to analyze the situation, usually from an emotional or socially driven perspective, and create a work that can visually represent that particular instance or individual(s). I like to abstract my subject and frequently hunt for opportunities to use heavy texture or found objects in the work. I often find inspiration in Surrealism and Dadaism. I find I am most fascinated by subjects that are bittersweet or similarly contradictory; where attributing a singular emotion would only describe one part of the story, but not the whole. However, what I most enjoy as an artist is hearing how the piece is interpreted by individual viewers and discovering what emotions they experienced when sitting with a piece. I hope it inspires people to be more open with their feelings, even if it's just within themselves.

Artist Statement

Daniel Juarez is originally from El Paso, Texas. He received his degree in Visual Communication from the Art Institute of Dallas and then took additional courses in fine arts from El Paso Community College. He was quickly employed as a graphic designer and worked in various aspects of advertising in Dallas for 20 years. By day, he was a sarcastic and efficient Ad Man, but by night Daniel explored his personal artistry in order to prevent certain death from monotony and client feedback. He developed a distinct style of highly textured, monochromatic portrait paintings. Daniel's playful and social personality enabled him to capture candid and authentic moments with his subjects. After living in DFW for over 25 years, Daniel and his family escaped to Wichita Falls where Daniel now spends the majority of his time engaged in the local art community. He works as a teaching artist, collaborating on projects with various organizations including 9th Street Studios, the Alliance for Arts and Culture, the Kemp Center for Arts and Culture, the Wichita Falls Museum at MSU, the WFISD and many others. He regularly teaches classes at the County Jail and the Juvenile Justice Alternative Education via the Art in Transition Program. He also serves on the board of the Wichita Falls Art Association as the Director of Educational Planning, the Advisory Board of the Wichita Falls of the Alliance for Arts and Culture, the Advisory Board of the Wichita Falls Public Library and the planning committee for Día de Muertos festival hosted by Potencia Projects and 9th Street Studios.

Artist Statement

My identity is deeply rooted in Phillips, Texas, a former oil company camp town that played a significant role in shaping who I am today. Despite its disappearance, the memories of Phillips remain vivid within me. I received my education there, benefitting from teachers who held masters degrees. Many of these educators resided in the teacherage, having been recruited to live and teach in our company town. Phillips Schools, thanks to the support of Phillips Petroleum Company and its resulting tax base, provided us with unparalleled resources. One fond memory from my childhood was the presence of convenient gas incinerators for our trash, which were regularly emptied by the oil company. I found joy in using the intense heat of the incinerator to melt my old Crayons, creating mesmerizing designs on its walls. These creations would eventually dissolve in a couple of days, allowing me to embark on new artistic endeavors. This was my initial foray into the world of art. The exodus of homes, churches, stores, and people from Phillips, Texas was triggered by a catastrophic explosion, marking the end of an era. Although the residents owned their homes, the land belonged to the company. For years, only the school remained, serving as offices and storage for the petroleum company. Now even the school has vanished, leaving behind only a faint trace of what might be the rows of trees marking the locations where homes once stood. The vast plains, mesquite trees, canyons, creeks, the people, and the memories of Phillips, Texas are indelibly imprinted upon my being. They form an intrinsic part of who I am today. As an artist, I work primarily with a limited oil palette. I draw inspiration from history, tradition, and the timeless masterpieces created by artistic luminaries. I strive to attain a level just beyond my current grasp, knowing that the pursuit of excellence is where my true fulfillment lies.

Artist Statement

With roots in the Midwest, Texas and travels across the United States, the landscape has inspired Becky Reeder in her paintings and in her interior design work. Becky is moved by nature, but also by the interior environment. She believes the comfort of home, where moments and memories are made, is vital to a person’s well-being. Her artwork is a simple representation of her travels and the places that remind her of home. Nothing makes her happier than to know that one of her paintings will help make someone else’s home or workplace a little more joyful. Becky's oil paintings are full of life, rich in color and subtle in spirit. Each painting is inspired by her walk of faith and hope to share in her life "remade." Over the years Becky has also learned the art of fine art digital imaging, creating reproduction art for fellow artists and to offer high-quality giclee prints to her collectors. Her reproduction and printing process starts with capturing artwork using advanced photography skills and equipment. She then carefully edits and color corrects each piece to create high-quality images for reproduction. Reproductions are made using a pigment-based, commercial printer located in her studio where she can ensure each print meet her client's standards. Becky attended both art and design school in Indiana, graduating at the top of her class. She loves to learn and finds that painting is always teaching her something new, in art and in life. Becky's studio and home are located in Wichita Falls, Texas where she and her husband live the empty-nest life designing and renovating their mid-century home, and traveling to see children and grandchildren who are spread across the miles between Texas and Kentucky. You can keep up with Becky's art and latest renovating and travel adventures @beckyreederremade

Jewelry Design

Artist Statement

After living my whole life in MN, I recently relocated to Wichita Falls with my husband to spend our retirement years near our daughter and her family. I have been making jewelry since 2011 and love the challenge of creating something beautiful that will connect with the soul of another. Each piece I make is one of a kind or limited edition, and I do a lot of custom work. I also will "rehome" a favorite charm or stone for you into a new design, as well as repairing much loved pieces when it's within my skillset to do so. My most recent passion is learning to use metal clay, which is shaped and kiln fired to become a high quality metal, giving a great deal of creative options to my designs. I make all my pieces in my home studio, and they can be found in a couple of local retail locations, including the Wichita Falls Art Gallery, as well as online.
