Jamie Monroe comes to his practice of working with metal as a craftsman and blacksmith. He holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, and makes his home in Salida, Colorado. His work exhibits the technical mastery and precision of a craftsman with the inventiveness of an artist. Monroe creates both wall-mounted and free-standing sculpture.

The inventive, contemporary fine art furniture of artist Ernst Gruler, of Santa Fe, melds sculptural design and ergonomic comfort. Gruler has developed his design sensibilities over the past 25 years, after receiving a BFA and an MA from Northern Michigan University.
