The Coyote said, “Shaman, remember that old man that died during the full moon of deep snow? Even you couldn’t save him.” Coyote knew the old man was the shaman’s mentor. The shaman struggled to regain his composure. Coyote grabbed him and hurled him off the cliff. “Another shaman down,” Coyote grinned. –“Secrets of Shamanism,” Jose Stevens, PH.D. & Lena S. Stevens.

Catherine Czacki’s practice challenges epistemological certainty, and her works resist immediacy in favor of a slow unpacking of the relationship between subject and object.

Katy Fischer’s collections evoke groups of artifacts or glyphs, with a fluctuation of meaning inspired by the way that artifacts, displaced from their original context, become pure form.

By duplicating, dividing, and overlapping the symmetrical ellipse, Heather Guertin embraces the infinite potential of the form to expand and collapse while keeping it constant and recognizable.

Utilizing the tools of theater, Alan Gutierrez’s work prioritizes the effort of the production itself—scrutinizing an exhibition as the site of production vis-à-vis the spectacle.

Mark Hagen creates works by pushing common and utilitarian materials in directions which reveal the process of making.

Dominique Labauvie’s focus on the line is reminiscent of musical rhythms and sequences.

In her sculptures, Sarah Peters observes how, over time, fervent emulation of styles develops into “the pleasure of contemporary misinterpretation.”

Josh Reames’s paintings of layered perennial symbols poke fun at the desire for the abbreviated and dashed off while articulating a relentless need for meaning.

Brian Rochefort’s glaze-laden ceramic vessels flaunt the anxious disorder of material chaos, using multiple firings in often surprising texture creation.

Israeli artist Guy Yanai’s paintings are characterized by bold colors, simplified shapes, and shallow depth of field. His simplified representations serve as a way to condense and organize a multitude of data.
