The 2018 book, "Ecological Aesthetics: artful tactics for humans, nature, and politics" by Nathaniel Stern, is poetic and scholarly collection of stories about art, artists, and their materials, arguing that ecology, aesthetics, and ethics are inherently entwined, and together act as the cornerstone for all contemporary arts practices.
Glenn Williams explores constructs: political, social, or environmental in nature. He deconstructs, reconstructs, and sometimes simply reflects various accepted norms in an effort to expose and on occasion question their impact on varying social realities.
The Church of Type is the new Letterpress Studio of Kevin Bradley, one of America’s most prolific letterpress printmakers.
Melissa Wagner-Lawler's work explores the perception of landscape and place, documenting the moments before change and destruction through artist books and prints.
Claudia Hart's work deals with issues of representation, and the role of the computer in shifting contemporary values about identity and what might be called the natural. Her project is to de-masculinze the culture of corporate technology by inserting the irrational and the personal into the slick, overly-determined Cartesian world of digital design.
In the studio, Lucy Derickson transforms found pewter serviceware in order to dissect complex human relationships and the objects tangled in that mess. The environmental benefits of using found material is essential to her current studio practice.
Tomory Dodge is an internationally recognized contemporary painter, much of this early work depicted scenes of wind blown detritus in desert-like settings, often exhibiting surreal or apocalyptic undertones while maintaining a sense of playfulness.
Jay Wolke lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. He has had solo exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, the St. Louis Art Museum, Harvard University and the California Museum of Photography.
Zachery Lechtenberg is an artist who "appreciates the shelf ready object," as an avid collector of toys and other items. His highly stylized enamel works take the form of jewelry and narrative plates, with original packaging covered in hand drawn illustrations.
Mutope Johnson has a rich and diverse background in the visual arts. His practice has led him to consider his role as an artist and how creative thinking can serve as a useful tool to establish points of contact between artists and community.
