Whether memoir and short story writing, or figurative and abstract painting, Adam Erlbaum's creative practice remains a constant during these changes of place. His internal explorations continually led back to abstract painting, just as his external explorations led him back to Philadelphia, where he has lived and painted since 2009.

Phyllis Anderson has been painting for nearly three decades, exploring process and outcome, meaning and metaphor.  She approaches her work like a lab experiment, a set of steps to see what will happen.

Matthew Borgen's recent work utilizes imagery from comic books published during the mid-20th century — the genre’s so-called golden age. Using their visual conventions, nostalgic aura, and narrative structure in combination with images borrowed from art history and other popular cultural sources, Borgen has developed a hybrid visual language which he uses in his digital prints and wall installations to make comment on topics ranging from historical, formal strategies of artmaking to issues within the current political and social discourse.
