    Taylor Kibrick: "Within my art, I focus almost exclusively on line quality, especially when it comes to my block prints. Block printing exclusively captures such an intensity that no other medium can recreate that I use to my advantage to make a final piece really pop. In my work I aim to not only capture the beauty of nature but to portray it’s obscure and, at times, grotesque features as well. I try to bring my understanding of nature’s allure and savagery to all my art, especially in my current concentration on birds. I do this by showing the proof of processes and allowing simple physics to take control of either paint or ink."

    Nick Smiley 

    Dean Weiler: "Many of my pieces center around gender and transitioning from female to male. The human body is a big center of focus in art, and trans bodies are a large focus for many people as well. Splicing the two together and normalizing a bodyout of the binary. Art has helped me throughout my whole life, with my depression and troubling family issues. I came out as transgender just before my freshman year of high school, and art has helped me work through emotions and issues I deal with. Art has helped me have a voice for things words could not convey."

    Marley Constantine: "My favorite materials to work with are graphite and pastel but I also really like painting with acrylics. I am currently focusing on drawing people. We have so many expressions and postures through which we can convey emotion and I think we are fascinating to draw and paint. My concentration this year is on people and I chose my materials and colors to coordinate with the personality I am trying to bring through."

    Maren Curtis: "I have been drawing since I was a very young and have a passion for drawing women. Most of my pieces are self portraits drawn with pen. I love designing clothes, so most of my girls are wearing detailed garments."
