 Art Avenue's Mission

To further building the bridge between activism and art
"We look for artists with a message to share and give them a platform to speak their truth. Fans of art are exposed to activism. Activists are exposed to art. Artists are given a chance to explore topics they don't normally explore… It's a beautiful intersection." Lawrence Ziese - Curator

Paula Dwyer

Returning from last year, Paula Dwyer brings back her beautiful and haunting sculptures.

Paula Dwyer's mixed media work is an ongoing collection of pieces from her passion and concern for environmental issues mixed with her love of recycled art. The female mannequin forms become visual storytellers... each a conceptual mix of color, texture and diversity, reflecting the world around us.

Can you see us now? (Fly Free)

Natural elements, the human figure and animal images are intertwined to express the importance of the balance of nature. With her arms wrapped in bandages symbolizing the need to heal, our storyteller reminds us of the raw beauty, but painful reality of the loss of many of earth’s beautiful creatures and the upset of the balance of all life as we know it. Recycled & found materials.


Inner Passage…(The gravitational pull of the moon and the tides of transition)

Our guardian... one who keeps watch and is part earth, sand & sea, is pulled back and forth by the ocean current, but remains steady & strong in her conviction to guard over these elements for the future. Recycled and found materials


The Bird Cage…(Cause & Effect)

From a natural perspective, recycled burlap coffee sacks with endangered animal images help to relay a message supporting the ethical treatment of animals, urging us to consider much thought before action. Recycled materials used throughout.
