Anne Gaines

Reduction linocut is my joy:  I love to draw and plan, I like order, I enjoy creating with a limited palette, I like the feel of carving the linoleum, and I revel in the shock of adding a new color during the printing process.  I am constantly inspired by birds, trees, flowers, my cat, other animals, and the Scriptures.

Anne Gaines is a Featured Artist with Artists Sunday.  Her work may be found at the Downtown Art Gallery in Brenham TX, and the Texas Artisan Gallery in Chappell Hill TX.

Chrissy Doolen

Every piece is imagined and hand fabricated. I truly believe my objects should be fun, funky, and artful. I am a metal, resin, and PMC artist, as well as a photographer, and mixed media artist.  I must create every day!

When I was nine my grandmother taught me to sew on a singer 27K Sphinx model. It had been her mother's sewing machine and was originally a treadle machine. Grandma had the "electric kit" put on the machine in the 1930s. It was a beautiful mysterious machine. This began my love of all things vintage and an appreciation for fine craft.

Cindy Aune

I have been an artist all my life, however, I did not realize it until 2010. I have always enjoyed painting, building, and creating. Turns out that makes an artist.


My work is acrylic mixed media, textured, usually large scale, and vibrant. My imagination seems to create only colorful big abstracted forms with limited detail. Subjects are a combination of whimsy and reality, or as my friend described, "whimsical with a dark underbelly".  I often experiment with unconventional tools, my fingers and paper towels applying pigments and making marks in a loose fluid style. 


My work invites the viewer to look beneath the surface, seeking the underlying tones, texture and shapes
