CHARLIE MUNOZ, ARTIST STATEMENT
Before Linda and I married in 1978, I took a course in bronze casting at the Ontario College of Art in Canada. Linda, our daughter Mira and son Jesse have all helped with my bronze casting at our house in Cuba, Alabama.
I’ve been affiliated with the Coleman Center in York, Alabama since its inception. The Coleman Center is a regional museum, library and art complex comprising an artist in residence facility, Municipal Art Project, and a fabric design shop.
I took a jewelry course with Joe Miller at the Coleman Center and I’ve made jewelry for over ten years. I also teach jewelry making at the Meridian Museum of Art where I am also on the board of directors.
My music interests have continued along with art. In 1984, Linda and I went to Japan where I studied with Shinichi Suzuki. For a number of years I taught cello and violin privately in the Suzuki Program in Columbus. I’m currently in the cello section in the Meridian Symphony Orchestra where I have been for a number of years.

GEORGE SHELTON, ARTIST STATEMENT
My work is largely centered around functional pieces made from regionally gown wood. I like to generate designs of my own or modify traditional designs just to make them my own, while keeping their function intact. I use a limited amount of stains or paint, preferring to le the natural grain and coloration of the wood stand out. I use a combination of modern power tolls and antique hand tools to do my work. Nature’s beauty does not need me to improve on it.
SHARON SHELTON, ARTIST STATEMENT
As a glass artist, I am relatively new to this medium. My past experiences have included painting and weaving. After taking classes with Linda Munoz, I have developed an interest in various forms of working with glass including mosaic art, stained glass, and glass fusing. Classes at John C. Campbell Folk School as well as with other artists have influenced my art. The pieces that are in this show are all fused glass. My style tends to be experimental with a bent towards abstract or representational art.
SEAN BRODERICK SCOTT, ARTIST STATEMENT
I recall my childhood to be very fun and exciting. I remember my favorite cartoon, my first time at the beach, or my favorite athlete I watched on tv. We all can relate to those happy filled memories from our childhood. My work is an examination of my childhood or my wildest dreams that are brought to life with a stroke of my pencil. I’m constantly inspired by life itself. Life is our greatest gift.
