JERI EISENBERG

Jeri Eisenberg works primarily with non-traditional and alternative photo-based techniques. She represses or subverts traditional photography’s emphasis on the representational qualities of the medium, and emphasizes instead the medium’s expressive nature. She employs a strong sense of materiality and seductive surfaces in her work, to evoke sense memories and visceral connections.

DEBORAH T. COLTER

Deborah T Colter practices fearless trust in her process of creating. She believes a painting needs to have rhythm, balance, harmony, life and a spark of magic. Creating something and seeing it transform into a piece alive with energy is an exciting form of that magic. Colter seeks to find order among chaos – a continual give and take that teeters between equilibrium and the breaking point.

FABIO MODICA

Fabio Modica blends abstraction and representation with a dramatic, vivid color palette capturing the eye of the viewer. He made a departure from realism in his early years as an artist and developed a “semi-abstracted” style utilizing sheer lines and colors. Modica seeks to shape an enigmatic mood or piece of memory through his close portraits and landscapes.

EMILY MORGAN BROWN

Birthed out of a fascination with ancient technique, Emily’s large-scale botanical tapestries are a lesson in history and a record of today.“After I take photos of the flower for the composition, I dry the flower, grind it into pigment, and make it into the egg tempera I will use to paint the linen. The subject lives forever in its painting, using a mostly forgotten process of the Old Masters as well as their technique of painting in grisailles to mimic relief sculpture.

OVERNIGHT WAFFLES

Yeast-raised waffles require planning ahead, but they’re absolutely as easy to make as their last-minute counterparts. The time spent resting enhances the irresistible flavor and makes the texture fluffy but chewy. Serve with butter and syrup for a traditional breakfast or use them as a “bread” to serve with virtually any meal — they’re that good.
