 Ann Alexander is a lifelong artist who is fascinated by the process of bringing imagination to form. A traditional potter for many years, she recently discovered Apoxie Sculpt, an air dried clay, that gives a new versatility to her work. She also adds deerskin, buffalo bones beads, and other natural materials to her one-of-a-kind Southwestern mixed media art.

Nancy WacHholz

 

Nancy Wachholz was born and raised in Wisconsin. She married her husband, photographer John Wachholz, in 1963 and moved to Silver City in 2007. Nancy and John were drawn the Gila Forest area- the colors, the weather, the people, the art. She felt a spiritual connection to this high desert, a wonderful place to live as well as thrive.

Nancy retired in 2000, she wondered if she could paint the sky. So, she took up watercolors because she loves the vibrancy and fluidity of this medium has a mind of its own.

Nancy and John had the good fortune to become close friends with some apache families. “They have great humor, a contagious and enduring connection with the land and very generous natures. So much so, they surprised us and blessed us with adopting us several years ago. My apache name is Graceful Hands of Power. I will never live up to this name.”
