Two new artists have come onto the art scene with fresh voices and new ways of viewing our world. In this issue we are elated that they chose AOTCE to bring you their art.  OShun Williams is out of Detroit but any day his work will be global, and I suggest you look and get his art while it is still affordable (even though I'm not trying to be in your pockets)  OShun is a painter and often his family is portrayed through his artistry.  Nikki Rhodes is a photographer and uses her travels as subject matter for her views of the world.  Both artists give us a look see, we may or may not have seen and it is wise to digest it all.



It has been seven years since the inception of Artists On The Cutting Edges aka AOTCE and I want to thank those artists who believed in a vision through their willingness to be interviewed.  My learning curve was steep, and many artists came along for the ride.  As much as I am driven to give back to the art community by featuring other artists, the need to be a working artist keeps calling my name.  AOTCE has seen many artist's careers thrive and many have gone on to shine. For that I am grateful.  However, my first love has always been as a working artist.  I am driven to do the best I can in all endeavors.  As a result, I will be stepping down from the task of editor/publisher of AOTCE.  AOTCE will not say goodbye forever, but for now the decision to lay it to rest has been made.  I hope to see you in those streets and on those gallery and museum walls.  Goodbye for now!



Peacefully, Valerie Fair
