Jamie Spinello explores parallels between shifting internal elements of the body and the temporality of landscape utilizing cut paper and plastic. Branching lines and organic forms swim between layers of Plexiglas alluding to digestive, cardiovascular and geological systems of transference. Atmospheric layers of mylar cloak these formations like an overlaying skin creating peepholes through which intricacies can be observed. Website:

Kimberlee Koym views the home as someplace taken for granted. It is a place that offers refuge for people to reengage their interior processes, to recharge from the trials of an alienating, over-stimulating, and demanding world. She utilizes art processes that echo these hands-on household actions. Light, water, video, ordinary supplies, such as pegboard and plastic bottles, are my current materials of choice. They highlight my appreciation of the commonplace, allowing me to explore the mystery of the unknown embedded within the everyday. To get there, I work at finding ways to coax seemingly magical effects from plain home staples. She employ a collage strategy that pulls in video, electronics, mirrors, hardware store sundries, and unlikely things found around the house. "My work investigates the energy that drives us. I transform this internal power to invent processes that generate a sense of wonderment."

Jana Rumberger uses the layering and recontextualization of objects and images to recreate portions of her history and family mythology. Through this practice she addresses the universals that exist within the personal. She is a 2007 MFA graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute and a 2006 recipient of the Edwin Anthony and Adelaine Boudreaux Cadogan Fellowship. Rumberger has shown her work in San Francisco, Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia, and Portland, Oregon.
