This event is free and open to the public, please join us and spread the word to friends and family. 

Giada Otten's Dada inspired images of manipulation of the human form have been the trademark of her diverse series of work. She works with Italian models, artists, musicians, and colleagues as the figures that embody her work.

Erica Popp's work in photography and ceramics display a close attention to detail in subject and craft. Her images travel the spectrum of haunting manipulations to the quiet details in our landscapes and in nature.

Raymond Hummel juggles the life of leisure and music as his endeavors spread across boundaries yet still making time to observe and document his experiences and meetings in the people and places of his life through painting. You can feel his gaze in the subject of all his work that creates a lasting freshness and documentation. His eye for subject is inescapable in his paintings. 

Albert Yowshien Kuo  "Never listened to me. He always did whatever he wanted." said Tim Liddy. His work changes nearly every year dedicating an entire year to a particular subject matter as he searches for the right conversation in his paintings. Though his subject matter shifts, there is an ever looming presence of design and architecture in his compositions. The work draws from his own life experiences along with referencing influences in music and film. The dialogue in his images is often strong and memorable, like going to the movies. Albert will be showing paintings and installation in the show.

David Rocco is the road warrior never without a film camera, including backups just in case. His documentation of events in his life take us to the most bizarre places in the country and the most comfortable places we could feel at home in. His work focuses on strong composition and lighting that pull us into the setting often making the viewer part of the conversation as opposed to being a spy. We are no fly on the wall, we are right there with him.
