Our May Art Showcase at The Weatherstone features artists Chris Cinder and Emory Ensign.  Please join us for their opening art show from 6-8 pm on Second Saturday, May 14, 2022, with display continuing through June 10, 2022.

Chris Cinder makes happy art for a mad world!  “My work is most like punk surrealism…a goofy blend of cartoon, realist textures, and comic book style compositions.  I tend most towards a ‘wasteland sci-fi survival’ theme featuring fantastical critters, robots, and other daring adventurers.  I make a craft what I would like to see on my own walls, shelves, and desktops.  I try to tell a story with each piece I craft.  I believe there still is a bit of magic left in the world, found in the stories that wander out there.  Patience is how you can discover them.  Take the time and you’ll find the stories all around us.  My hope is that my work will invite you to imagine and explore the boundless possibilities in story…and come play for a while.  Be seeing you…”

Emory Ensign graduated from Sacramento State College in 2007 with a degree in Graphic Design and has worked in the design field for 15+ years.  He is a multi-generational artist following in the footsteps of his father and great uncle.  He loves creating detailed pen and ink illustrations and bright acrylic paintings.
