In sculptures expressing a push/pull between rigid materiality of object and captured gestural movement, Paco Castro explores dependency of each part of a form for it to stand, as well as the tension that is created against gravity.
Genie Castro's monotypes, derived from an intuitive mind set, are rich with robust color and gestural flow. Approaching her work as a creative outlet and a temporary freedom from 'roles in society as a woman, mother and provider', she deftly crafts organic expressions or outward pouring joy.

Akama Paul was born and raised in Nigeria: "I pull a lot of my inspirations from my experience as a young and spirited kid in Lagos city and the different cultures I was exposed to growing up. I take a minimal approach to photography and create art that is easy and aesthetically pleasing to the eyes."

Linda Snouffer uses nature for both inspiration and source of materials in her botanical printmaking, creating intricately detailed landscapes of prairies, shorelines, forests, and mountain ranges utilizing the actual plants for the printed images.
Snouffer states "Prairies have a rich history; they beckon me to recreate them and share their stories in my printmaking. I admire the structure of prairie plants, which, when healthy, have root systems three times the length of the stalk height to draw flood waters into aquifers and to draw water to the plant, persevering through drought periods. The work begins with the foundation of the sky - the sky brings it all to life and provides depth and dimension to my work. No two skies are alike and with the botanical print landscapes, I am realizing my unique vision."
