Man we were bowled over by art in 2011. Truly stunning contemporary work by artists of all ages, all backgrounds and who create art in all media. We don’t discriminate against art; we love photography, painting, mixed media, collage, sculpture, illustration and more. We are a little biased when it comes to bold colors, trendy patterns and exciting subject matter, though. We ended up choosing twelve artists that really made an impression on us this year (but even that was tough to narrow down):

Nick Meek

Barry Stone

Erin Curtis

Valerie Lueth

Alyson Fox’s New Designs

Claire Falkenberg

Ricardo Paniagua

Atelier Olschinsky

Brandon F. Wilson


Alberto Seveso

Rachel Sitkin
