Jeanette Fintz: Jeanette Fintz is a painter, art educator, art writer and independent curator who is the recipient of many grants, travel stipends, artist residencies and awards. Her abstract paintings have a geometric substructure that supports vibrant color expressions. Carter Ratcliff writes: "...we might well imagine that she (Jeanette Fintz) is the traveller, reflecting on experiences that are of course individual not universal.Yet she travels confidently in the realm of universals”.

Matthew Langley: Matthew Langley's prolific works on paper are studies about brushwork and gesture as well as color vibrations and their interactions. Stripping art down to the visual essentials and creating multiple paintings on minimalist themes, Langley, according to Kriston Capps, "proves to be more recidivist than redux". Mr. Langley has shown extensively throughout the United States and his work can be found in many public, private and corporate collections. More about Matthew Langley: http://matthewlangley.com
David Provan: David Provan explores color and form to create sculptural diagrams of spiritual experience. The chromatic brilliance of the powder coat surface on steel structures make an unambiguous statement about presence. Mr. Provan has been the recipient of a Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant and his work is in many private and public collections including the MTA Arts in the Subways Permanent Collection and in the Yale University Art Gallery.
