Artists include:

Asia Ward

In the hands of sculpture artist Asia Ward, aluminum flashing becomes beautiful works of art. Ward transforms this unconventional material into complex diorama dreamscapes inspired by her own memories. Thoughtful use of shadows and light allow her work to expand beyond the 3-D sculptures themselves, creating additional drama in the spaces between the aluminum and in the artwork’s immediate surroundings.

Mark Wojahn

Mark Wojahn has momentarily turned his documentary lens toward a new series of photo paintings which he calls Doppelgängers. Born a fraternal twin, he has long been fascinated by the alter-ego of a person. This manifests as he transforms photos from his archive or new images shot in his N.E.studio with multiple layers of texture and paint into rich and antiqued images of our evil twins.

Keith Braafladt

Keith’s work reflects an exploration of light, movement and perception. His new series explores a photographic documentation of landscape in motion. 
 



Mary Bowman-Cline

These colorful oil paintings are a rendition of traditional landscapes.  Mary uses unusual objects in land and cityscapes (floating pears and giant produce), to create distinct worlds.
 



Heidi Hafermann

Heidi is interested in the histories and stories of her surroundings. She looks for ways to blend the real and the imagined, and to invite viewers into those stories.
