Linda Poteet | Photography, Drawing, Mixed Media, Acrylics & Watercolor
“I have been interested in photography ever since I was a child and got my hands on my mom's 1970s 110 Kodak camera.
At Lodi High School, I enjoyed taking photos and developing film for the school newspaper. Later I had jobs video taping and editing weddings, commercial footage, and worked as a camera operator for live TV.
Since becoming a mom 17 years ago, my favorite photography subjects have been my 6 children. Following local photographers on Instagram and being a member of the Lodi Community Art Center has inspired me to develop more techniques and try different subjects.”

Susan Farley | Glass artist, Photography
Susan is an avid environmental enthusiast, having donated countless hours of volunteer work in leadership and training for the Sierra Club. She loves the Sierra Nevada Mountains, having gained an appreciation and reverence of the outdoors from her early experiences with her family, and continues to ski, fish, camp, and hike.
In 2007 she took a glass bead making class and enjoyed the process. However – it would take her 6 attempts to make a symmetrical pair of beads for earrings! Shortly before retiring, she purchased a “well-loved” kiln, and began making fused glass jewelry. It was not too long before she made the leap into other glass forms, from functional pieces such as votives, bowls, and platters, to sculptural art pieces. She enjoys this glass art form and all that it allows: the textures, the colors, the shaping, blending, and melting – all allowing for limitless creative expressions.
“It’s like Christmas morning when I go out to my cooled kiln to open it and see how my glass came out!”
Susan also enjoys taking photographs, and is often finding ideas for her glass creations from her travels throughout the world, while hiking in the mountains, and in her own backyard. She admits she has not “found her voice”, as she is still in awe of what she can attempt to create from what she sees in the world.
Susan has taken a few classes to increase her glass knowledge and skills, and has a mentor friend who is a great resource for her. She has recently won awards at juried art shows. But as she says: “I have a long way to go – I’ve just begun my discovery of what is possible in the glass world.”
