    Kathryn Nun has been embracing the arts of Santa Fe since relocating from South Florida in 2001. Her strong use of color results in bold and vivacious pieces, always full of passion and highly influenced by New Mexico's wildlife and brilliant sunsets. Predominantly working in acrylic, Kathryn often applies a variety of textures to her paintings, including watercolor inks, liquid oils, epoxy resin, and encaustic techniques. Her previous gallery representation includes Studio 14 Art Gallery and Ghost Town Trading Post in Madrid, New Mexico. She was also a featured artist in the 2015 love AS Revolution Festival & Art Show.

    Mixed media will be presented by Melinda Bon’ewell. She combines her passion of the Wild West and found objects with mixed media. Bringing historical characters to life with assemblage, acrylic paint and up-cycled objects. Nostalgia and mystic of historical legends are combined with portraiture in many of her paintings.
