Meet the jurors

Britt Steinmann
European-American artist Britt Steinmann is best known for her vibrant palette
and powerful contemporary painting style in various media – favorite being acrylics. In
this medium Britt’s technique of using fast drying paints combined with graphic elements
and often small collage fragments affords her the excitement of artistic challenges and
spontaneity. It allows her to build compositions through experimentation with strong
aspects of color, form, and contrasts.
Britt’s work has been shown and published in numerous exhibition catalogues and
brochures of professional galleries and art museums in Germany, Austria, and Italy. Ms.
Steinmann was also featured in a publication as one of the international artists working
in Germany – representing the USA.
A substantial portion of Britt’s work has been purchased by the Art Museum of her city
of residence during her 15-year stay in Europe, through its Art Foundation, for its
permanent collection. Her work can also be found in private collections in Europe, USA,
and South America.
After having lived and worked abroad, Britt returned to the US in 2015 and makes her
home now in Phoenix, AZ.
BA Graphic Design – Folkwang University of the Arts, Essen, Germany
MFA Fine Arts – Duesseldorfer Kunst Akademie, Duesseldorf, Germany
Lifetime Member – International artists group “ductus06” based in Germany.
Juried member – Arizona Artists Guild, Phoenix, AZ USA

Ellen Nemetz is a contemporary artist based in Phoenix, a former member of the eye lounge artist cooperative, and currently the co-curator of the First Studio Gallery space.

Although Ellen always had an interest in art, she studied Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Madison, Wisconsin. Until her move to Arizona, Ellen was a self-taught artist. Her works are in public and private collections in Europe and throughout the United States.

In this series of paintings, she works primarily in acrylic on canvas. Using her representational style, she places her realistic animals in highly improbable situations. While striving to stay humorous, engaging, and thought provoking, her twisted animal portraits have an element of psychological stress echoing the anxiety experienced by many in an ever more crowded world. Her thought-provoking art explores the difficulty involved in coexisting with those around us.

David Bradley

Born in Louisiana, David embarked on an artistic journey at the age of 11 when he immersed himself in the biographies of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci. Drawn to the idea of “making things,” the path of an artist seemed a natural and fulfilling choice. Since earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1981, he has passionately engaged in the realms of creation, education, and exploration within the world of clay and creativity.

Currently residing on an urban farm alongside his wife Tess Mosko Scherer, David finds inspiration in the vibrant tapestry of birds, fish, and wildlife that share their space. This intimate connection with nature is the heartbeat of his current body of work.

Crafted on the potter’s wheel, David’s creations come to life through the intricate dance of colored slips, evoking a fresh style reminiscent of folk art or Outsider art. The materials and simplicity of expression employed in his work capture the essence of this artistic tradition.

In his latest series, the birds take center stage on a jar, utilizing the air as their playground and gathering place. Each piece becomes a celebration of the natural world, a testament to David’s deep appreciation for the beauty found in the simple yet profound interactions between creatures and their environment.
