They gathered to work with renowned artist and master teacher, Leigh Hyams

. Leigh insists on authenticity, passion,and commitment in every stroke of the brush.

She “tricks” the artist into abandoning the analytical mind in favor of complete honesty

and presence when facing the canvas or paper. In the idyllic setting of a rustic ranch in

Calistoga, CA, magic happened. Images of chickens, horses, goats, snakes, streams,

old barns, rusted farm tools, tractors, and blooming flowers became their inspiration.

These artists gelled into a group where each individual supported and inspired each other

to go far beyond the boundaries of the familiar. They  diverge in style and expression,

but all the works in this show are based on the unique and special chemistry that happened

during that week in May.
