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. Her painting process usually begins with a thick underpainting using a carefully chosen color (a color of influence!) which is left intentionally visible at the edges.

Annette Cords is an interdisciplinary artist whose work spans diverse media, from painting and weaving to installation and sculpture. Her Jacquard tapestries focus on the convergence of visual and textual languages, making connections between text and textile. In dialogue with the material culture of weaving, she examines how weaving intersects and augments developments in writing, painting, and abstraction. Cords’ work has been exhibited extensively nationally and internationally, and she has been the recipient of numerous grants and residencies.
