323 Millworks is a wood art and design company that was born out of a love and passion for creating beautiful things. Our wooden mosaic art pieces are inspired by the geometric patterns of Southwestern art as well as the gorgeous Appalachian mountainscapes here in the foothills of Virginia.
These one-of-a-kind pieces of art are brought to life by heating, cutting, hammering, forming and welding random recycled materials together.

artist and potter
I am interested in a conversation between sculptural glass making, found objects and the human body. Glass, as a medium lends itself to many possibilities, as does body language, and I find both to have the power to exude gestures, expressions, and emotions.
My art is meant to bring the viewer back again and again to see new things in painting: not so much the thing itself (the cup or bowl or person) but the form: shapes, colors, ideas. I do not paint subjects or objects; I paint the shapes, shadows, and relationships that are seen by my artist’s eye in the material before me.
Banish Bland. Create beautiful spaces with acrylic and mixed media art by Judith F Lochbrunner at StoneCoalStudio. “Not your average garden” continues to be the theme woven through all my art pieces. Inspiration starts in the gardens and continues to the views framed by those spaces. My art expresses that “something” whether it is unexpected, exciting or even amusing but certainly never bland or just average.

I paint both figurative and abstract subjects, always using my fearless love of color and movement.

Mary Anne Meador
Painting plein air where life is happening whether it is the lake, ocean. busy city or calm of a garden is where I enjoy most painting to bring the sights and sounds into the painting. Pastels were my initial medium for plein air but since moving from the coast to the Mountains, I have enjoyed painting in mixed media, acrylic, and oils. I am an active plein air painter with the Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge and participate in painting and special events with this group of artists in the Roanoke and Bedford areas.

Creating art has always been a part of my life. My father was a well-known artist in upstate New York and I began showing my work with him at the age of 12. I received a BA in fine art from the New York State University at Oswego and have been a free-lance artist ever since. While I am known for mixed-media portraits and landscapes, I also enjoy working with more abstracted images, collage and printmaking. My family has lived in the Roanoke Valley for more than 30 years now and an artist can’t help but be influenced by the beauty of our area.
Susan Harb is a self-taught sculptor and assemblage artist who bases her training on past lives a journalist and owner of a gallery specializing in international folk art.

"Outsider art invites the spirit out rather than imposing the creator’s will on a piece. I am comfortable with that."
My paintings are inspired by the scenery of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the beautiful valley in which I live. I love adding texture and color to abstract interpretations of these views!
