Eleanor Annand

About the Artist

EleanorMy current body of work explores printmaking as a means of creating multiples in 3-dimensions. Straying from traditional print forms such as newspapers and books, I assemble printed, die cut paper into modular units meant for further construction. Working from these building blocks, I instinctively arrange larger systems and formal compositions.

Karen Hardy

About the Artist

Hardy K HeadshotExperimenting with handmade paper has led me to discover ways to push the medium beyond its traditional role as a substrate. The paper pulp I create yields sculptural work with a translucent, membrane-like quality, and an inherent tension resulting from its propensity to shrink as it dries. At once beautiful and uncomfortable, the expressive properties of this material are a rich source for exploring the metaphoric potential of biological forms and systems.

Scott Hazard

About the Artist

I build intimate portal-like spaces and micro-landscapes using numerous layers of paper that are carefully torn or cut, spaced apart and aligned to define sculptural voids. Cathartic micro-gardens punctuated with masses of text beckon the viewer to delve in for a brief departure. In these spaces wilderness becomes less defined as nature but rather the constant flow of information, language and symbols that habitually envelops us - I work to craft new spaces from this wilderness, instead cultivating the wild in the enclosed.

About the Artist

JUDiTHROLFE WorkingPicI primarily work with strips of paper using a technique commonly known as quilling, but with a unique and contemporary approach. Rather than using the decorative shapes typically associated with paper filigree, the paper is still kept on edge but treated as its own line, not unlike sketching with paper.

Jennifer Khoshbin

About the Artist

Jen Khoshbin HeadshotMost of my work is about stories - the ones we tell ourselves; the ones we never understand; the ones that finally crash over our heads. But I also understand that artwork is also mostly problem solving - whether I'm commissioned to create a chair, a mural, an installation, a framed drawing, or a temporary audio piece -  I am considering how to solve this piece from many different angles, but always with you and me in mind.

Sarah Rose Lejeune

About the Artist

LejeuneWorking primarily between handmade paper, handwoven cloth, and metal, Sarah Rose’s sculptures are quietly humorous meditations on nostalgia. Her work expresses a simultaneous desire for completeness and a patience with the unformed. Existing somewhere between dream and everyday life, SR's sculptures articulate the foggy space that exists between experiencing something and the memory of it.

Alex McClay

About the Artist

McClay headshotMcClay’s work takes many forms, including fine press limited edition books, traditional 2D prints, art publications, textiles, and installations. By exploring traditional book binding techniques, McClay is interested in the way our bodies interact with text and language, and the possible affects of re-rendering, abstracting, expanding or contracting the traditional book format.

Jaydan Moore

About the Artist

Moore headshotBy deconstructing and reassembling found silver-plated tableware into new images I am able to commemorate the individual’s ability to do the same to his/her own valuables and memories. By fabricating a new form out of many fragments from stylistically and historically related objects, I create a new image of what that object means to our society, a representation that takes all memories of its use into consideration. Dissecting these objects, altering their form, and piecing them into commemorative wares there is still some semblance and evidence left of their past incarnation.

About the Artist

Rodriguez HeadshotThe work is light and surface. Exercises on seeing and perceived reality. The vast spatial presence hidden within a single material made visible through precise cuts into a surface.

Jessica White

About the Artist

White in studioI draw inspiration from the nature I see in my backyard, folk tales, children’s books, and ghost stories.  I look for the intersections between story and truth. I read between the lines to find the quiet parts left unspoken.
