Nora Sherwood pursued a career in scientific illustration after turning 50. But the beauty of her work is not just a new career; "I'm just doing my tiny little bit to get people to think about the natural world." After traveling, Ashland painter Gabriel Lipper began looking at his own environment in a new light. And Bend's Chris Cole integrates the mechanics of a bike with the aesthetics of art.
