Tom McMillin

"Josine Ianco-Starrels once referred to me as a visual poet.

The cosmos that we live in, and we our selves, are in a constant state of flux, nothing is permanent. It is this never ending change that touches me. This is the real beauty. In my art I try to capture a micro second of this transitory dance. I only hope my art reflects this lofty goal and is visual poetry."

Gerri McMillin

"Gerri had a dream while exploring the Sea of Cortez with her husband, Tom. What if she could create space where her ethereal fishbone vessels would metamorphosize into sea creatures. For several years Gerri played with the idea, until one day she knew what her underwater world would look like. Gerri created an alternate universe where she could swim peacefully amongst the jellies."

– Melissa Brown Bidermann

"Come in for a swim. I promise you won't get stung or wet."

Russ McMillin

"Power, Culture, Icons is about humanity, and our relationship with power. This work is a reflection of humanities search for self awareness and our relationship to the issues of nature, god and society. The work relates to the acquisition of power, cultural development and ultimately societies creation of iconic images.

These sculptures incorporate influences and elements from pre-history, history, and contemporary society. The icons used are drawn from universal themes found in stories handed down for millenniums. Those are incorporated with more contemporary images, reflecting the continually evolving values of our society."
