About the artist

I am a working artist with an eclectic career.  In addition to my studio work I have done workshops, teaching, publishing, and commissions.  I believe in experiential learning. I'm interested in all aspects of the creative process. I have been an Outward Bound instructor in the Boundary Waters of Minnesota and led trips through Alaska as well as developing creative problem solving classes for corporate retreats in Europe. The thread that connects all of my work is a love of nature and helping myself and others unleash our creativity.

About the artist

My paintings and drawings, intimate in scale, are a reflection of my quiet, contemplative existence. Often bathed in the light of the ‘magic hour’, my subjects are imbued with a sense of mystery, mysticism, memory and poetry under thoughtful, careful observation. Surrounded by beauty, my intent is to capture the lucid stillness of natural light over skin, stones, fruit, clouds — each one a unique, rapturous, wordless meditation on form, light and color, revealing the unseen world through the seen world. My work is informed by my personal spiritual practices, the Old and Modern Masters, earth, water, sky, phases of the moon, the music and poetry of singer-songwriters, the human figure, silence, my hands. I am leading myself to a secret dream that I have had over and over again.

About the artist

Early access to digital technology influenced the direction of her work. For many years, she was fortunate to print with Nash Editions in Manhattan Beach where they allowed her to play and create works on experimental substrates, including painted canvases and aluminum foil, as well as traditional Iris prints in small editions. As technology became more accessible, she began creating large format prints in her own studio.

Her current work focuses on drawing and combines digital processes with ink drawing and hand stitching to create unique pieces that speak with one another through their shared imagery.

About the artist

Roman Verostko, born 1929, maintains an experimental studio in Minneapolis where he has developed original algorithmic procedures for creating his art. A year after graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh (1949) he entered monastic life at St Vincent Archabbey where he studied philosophy & theology, was ordained a priest, and followed post graduate studies in New York & Paris. He taught at St. Vincent College and served as Staff Editor for Art & Architecture for the first edition of the New Catholic Encyclopedia (McGraw Hill, 1967).

He departed from monastic life in 1968, married Alice Wagstaff, and joined the humanities faculty at the Minneapolis School of Art now known as the Minneapolis College of Art & Design. Aware of the awesome power of algorithmic procedure he began experimenting with code and exhibited his first coded art program, the Magic Hand of Chance in 1982. In 1987 he modified his software with interactive routines to drive paint brushes mounted on a pen plotter drawing arm.

About the artist

Born in Washington Heights in 1935, Wally Reinhardt only began making art seriously at age 49. His fascination with Ovid’s monumental fifteen books of poetry, however, was ignited during the previous decade. While living in Rome in the 1970s with his late partner Robert Keyser, a Philadelphia-based painter who also taught at Temple University Rome, Reinhardt consistently encountered the city’s artistic interpretations of Ovid’s work. A patron of opera and ballet as well as an admirer of Renaissance and Baroque artists like Antonio del Pollaiuolo, Luca della Robbia, and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Reinhardt began studying Ovidian-inspired artworks. Having never had formal art training, the artist acknowledges that the museums and the city of Rome itself were marvelous teachers.

"My work pushes the boundaries of what has been historically defined as a print.  I have been exploring the integration of traditional and digital printmaking processes in a three-dimensional format by layering intricate digital lasercuts with traditionally printed monotypes on translucent sheets of washi paper.  I am interested in how these layered sheets allow for an interaction of light and shadow as they occupy space.  Lace and craft doilies of family heritage serve as a vantage point for the paper abstractions.  These compositions become transformed into a deeper temporal and psychological space through the complex layering of the intricate patterns."

About the artist

"I make number and text based, color oriented abstract paintings and drawings.

The paintings are created by repeating and layering the words or numbers found in the title of the piece. I use my own handwriting, fragment each letter or number and assign colors to every unit. Repeated over and over, the words become purposefully illegible, serendipitous rhythms of lines and colors in transition. I am interested in the “flow” the marks make, rather than any hint at legibility."

I consider the Stroke Studies (2014 – present) to be joyful research and development. Although these paintings began as a possible means to add more “hand” to the grounds of my text-based paintings, they have developed into an ongoing inquiry and stand on their own as finished works.

About the artist
"My work is a contemporary statement layered in classical elements hidden in the unpredictability of mixed mediums. I look for detail and watch for change. I find movement that becomes suggestion, texture, and images that become another form. I love rainy days, dusk and tamarack bogs…stones and cracked walls overgrown with wildflowers…water habitats and all their varied moods." Maarja Roth

About the artist

The depiction of land has often been used as a means of celebrating or critiquing culture. The use of pastoral views, banal architecture and everyday trash problematize the traditional definitions of a natural landscape. Through the process of transforming and miniaturizing materials found in the land, objects, in their new context, are no longer discernible as natural or man-made. The juxtaposition of representational modes and materials create a hybrid space where the romanticized and actual intermingle. Contrasts between the flat, painted vistas and artifacts from the land expose the illusion of representation and subsequently confuse the pictorial space, calling into question the authenticity of the objects. The forms fracture the pictorial space, at times, inhabiting the frames, robbing them of their ability to define a single view and inviting a phenomenological exploration by the viewer.characteristic of identity.
