For nearly 10 years, SND has been honored to work with  Kathryn Mapes Turner of Turner Fine Art to visually present her incredible, introspective paintings to the public. This month Turner’s exhibition of new work, “A Thin Place”, opens in Jackson Hole, Wyoming at Trio Fine Art with an Opening Reception on July 18. The exhibit explores the ethereal connection between the physical and spiritual convergence found in the beauty of Jackson Hole, a beauty further enhanced by the rich local community of artists to which Turner belongs.

ARTIST STATEMENT: My need to create flows from the privilege of participating in the miraculous nature of the creative process rather than rendering some notion of a perfect product. The creative process is a confluence of nature’s inspiration and my personal interpretation of what I am experiencing. I strive to create paintings that record my own experience of the subject’s essential spirit and energy, not an imitation of a fixed surface reality. This process requires my presence, enthusiasm, open-minded appreciation, playfulness, courage and honesty. In this way, creating art is transformative, universal and timeless. – Kathryn Mapes Turner, TurnerFineArt.com

The SteelSunSage Project: Steel 2 & 3 Portfolios Photos Added

Steel 2: Carrie Furnaces

The mission of The SteelSunSage Project is to inspire people to find beauty in every environment and appreciate the essence of what makes it unique. 

The SteelSunSage Project Presents

The Homestead Works dominated an industry and defined a community for more than 100 years. Before Pittsburgh was the metropolitan City of Bridges, it was the Smokey City. Immigrant workers took over steel jobs that paid well despite dangerous conditions and resulting in sacrificed skies.

Pittsburgh’s steel built the Brooklyn Bridge, the George Washington Bridge, the Chrysler Building, and the Empire State Building, not to mention miles upon miles of steel rail leading people to the West. This steel made the world-famous “Ferris Wheel” come alive at the 1893 Chicago World Fair as well as form the Panama Canal’s lock gates.

After a century, the steel industry came to a close in the 1980s and many workers were left unemployed or working for a foreign company. The loss for Pittsburgh after the steel industry boom faded was devastating, but allowed the championship character of Pittsburgh to shine as the future grew brighter and new industries emerged with clean, bright skies.  – S.N.

Steel 2: Carrie Furnaces

Steel 2 was shot at Carrie Furnaces National Historic Site, Rankin, PA and Steel 1 at the Homestead Works historic site, Homestead, Pennsylvania. I aimed to focus on the simple beauty and captivating past that is engraved amid every dent and weathered texture adorning these authentic industrial remains.


Steel 3 was shot at The Pittsburgh Foundry in Lawrenceville, PA. Their appropriate motto is “Metallic Strength Since 1901″. Unlike the first two site for Portfolios 1 and 2, this site is an actual working company. Much of the site is a treasure trove of metal casting history and some areas are still functional while partnering with other foundries on current metals projects.
“1901. The first Roosevelt was in office. Assembly lines began to hum, the Pirates won the NL Pennant, and the family-owned Pittsburgh Foundry and Machine Company opened its huge wooden doors. Now with over 100 years under our belts, we continue to provide superior, well-manufactured metals at competitive prices so you can grow your business. Maintain your reputation for quality with our responsive and knowledgeable service. Get ahead of the competition with our quick turnarounds. And depend on us as a partner, as we’re proud to be family owned and operated.” – PittsburghFoundry.com
