Jeffrey Owen Hanson is an award-winning, philanthropic artist on a mission to change the world through art. Visually impaired since childhood from neurofibromatosis, Jeffrey’s acrylic-on-canvas works employ bold color and heavily sculptured texture to create a striking signature style. Jeffrey’s commissioned paintings reside with art collectors around the globe, including Sir Elton John, Warren E. Buffett and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. While Jeffrey enjoys a very successful career as an artist, his philanthropic spirit has resulted in more than 200 nonprofit organizations benefitting from his auctioned works. Artwork gifted to charity has generated over $3 million dollars! Next up: $10 Million by 30!
Jeffrey believes “Every act of kindness helps create kinder communities, more compassionate nations and a better world for all…even one painting at a time.”
Therman Statom - sculptor, glass artist, and painter - is most notably known as a pioneer of the contemporary glass movement for his life-size glass ladders, chairs, tables, constructed box-like paintings, and small scale houses; all created through the technique of gluing glass plate together.
Throughout his career, public artworks have been permanently installed at prominent locations including the Los Angeles Public Library, Corning, Inc. Headquarters, the Mayo Clinic, San Jose Ice Center, the Toledo Museum of Art, and the Jepson Center for the Arts in the Telfair Museum, Savannah as well as several hospitals across the country.
In 2016 CRCC partnered with Therman to create an exhibit at Kaneko utilizing painted glass designed by the center’s children. This display has been reborn into the table centerpieces available to own at the event.
