Michele Kishita is a Philadelphia-based painter who strives to conjure the landscape that no longer exists but is inherently contained in each of her panels. She investigates the visual contrast and harmony where human-made structures and nature intersect. Her paintings are strongly influenced by the graphic stylizations and compressed spaces of Japanese ukiyo-e prints. Kishita’s paintings are in a number of private/corporate collections, including Toyota, Capital One, and Kaiser Permanente. She has participated in artist residencies in New Mexico, Russia, and Iceland and exhibited at the Sharjah Art Museum in the United Arab Emirates and the Museum of Non-Conformist Art in St. Petersburg, Russia. She holds a BFA and MFA from the University of the Arts.

Stuart Lehrman's  practice involves dialogue between order and chaos. Constantly experimenting with the physical properties of paint,  between adding and subtracting, making and unmaking, working to a place where he loses control of the painting and then struggling back to achieve the right balance between wild spontaneity and emotional restraint.
