Jo Ann Biagini combines image transfer, drawing and collage to create works on paper that merge multi-layered images with nuanced surfaces. Biagini’s pieces uncover connections and relationships among juxtaposed elements from the biological and natural worlds.

Chela Fielding is a sculptor fascinated by the cast-off elements of peoples’ lives. She conjures up narratives by giving castoffs new identities and inspirations.  Fielding's sculptures speak to the universal experience of our discarded layers and today’s detritus that once was a daily part of our lives.

Tarra Lyons paints organic abstractions that vibrate with deeply-felt symbol, color, texture and surface to create a resonant visual poetry. Current imagery includes morulas, embryonic divisions, botanical forms, sprouting seeds, tubers, and plant life that emulate structures in animal and human life.

Charlie Milgrim sees the future through a lens of the shaken up past, beyond the precipice of the present. Using materials that would otherwise become landfill, such as discarded bowling balls, Milgrim re-contextualizes them to function as conceptual reminders of delicately balanced or potentially destructive forces both natural and political.
