Rebecca Morgan is from central Pennsylvania, and her paintings, drawings, and ceramics emanate from stereotypes of rural Appalachia. Humorous, benevolent, and savage at turns, her characters touch on truths about poverty, addiction, and off-the-grid living, as well as idealizations of uncultured country life. Stylistically, Morgan embraces hyper-detailed naturalism, influenced by Dutch painters such as Memling, Brueghel, and Van Eyck, as well as absurd, repulsive caricature suggestive of underground cartoonists like R.Crumb.

Born in 1974, California native Christopher Schulz is a sculptor who takes the abstract and refines it into its purest form. The exploration of material and composition allows him to incorporate his own emotions during the process. He uses his talents to invite the viewer to participate in the physical interaction of a three dimensional arena. The importance of the instinctive responses given by his audience is just as important as his own dispositions. It is up to the viewer to experience his art in their own exclusive way.

French artist, born in 1954 in Versailles. Lives and works in Paris but also in Lozère (in the south of France) where, as soon as she can, she likes to isolate herself. After graduate studies, she pursues several different jobs, from teaching to astrology, and in the medical community, at the time she raised her her children. All this while continuing parallel painting studies (workshops Carrousel du Louvre) then sculpture at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris and in the workshop of Viviane Amber. This last meeting is decisive for her.
The piece floats between abstraction and figuration, demonstrating great sensitivity to the equilibrium of volume to negative space. The form is beautifully weighted in the round.
