Introducing Our Spring Solos 2017 Artists
On Confluence by John Ryan Brubaker uses photographs developed in a West Virginia river using an acid mine agent to depict transit, such as interstates, riverbeds and intersections.
Zoe Cohen’s Shul/Church Project uses a traditional Jewish cut-paper technique to illustrate historic synagogues and churches in U.S. cities that were later re-purposed or demolished. Her vision is to show the shared history between the Jewish and Black communities by showcasing the beauty in these buildings.

In Friends at Play Braxton Congrove merges performance with stand alone art to explore complex subjects with crafty objects to create a visually appealing and playful display.
Sascha Hughes-Caley‘s To What End takes a comedic approach to a series of otherwise serious topics such as spirituality and failure, with the hope addressing darker themes ranging from shame to power.
Ali Seradge takes us on a journey through past and present as he reflects on his childhood experiences as an Iranian-American and the current state of the Middle East and Mediterranean regions as told through media.
René Treviño swaps out traditional Greek and Western names of constellations for Ancient Mexican names and those from his personal family history for his aptly titled Renaming the Constellations. He used layers depicting the constellations to create his exhibition.
