Bonnie Ward Klehr

     
Jen Blazina

- Using the inherent distortions of her cast glass panels, Jen Blazina's silk-screened images of vintage snapshots and family photos become hazy, unfocused reminders of the fragility and vulnerability of the memories and recollections by which we author our present identities.

Bonnie Ward Klehr

- In her current installation, Klehr constructs an organized explosion of varied color, texture, and density using the delicate medium of glass beads. While insignificant as singular objects, it is the sum and cooperation of these humble materials that gives Klehr's work its distinctive visual potency.

Casey Riordan Millard

- In both style and imagery, Riordan Millard's painting/sculpture delight in confusing generational expectations with gender expectations. Her work reminds us that childhood's anxiety and confusions are not the idyllic period of innocence our culture projects any more than adulthood is a time of mature stability.

Jenny Laden

- Jenny Laden's delicate watercolors offer the rarest depiction of contemporary women. The artist resists either judging or co-opting her subjects, but instead offers earnest portraits of unembarrassed leisure with whispers of restlessness and introspection.
