Alicia Bailey: "Almost Endless"

The impetus for Almost Endless, a dimensionally variable installation of book forms, comes from my love of what the Japanese call Shinrin-yoku (forest bathing). Almost Endless was created using of a variety of repetitive variables for the production of hundreds of hand-printed images individually bound into dozens of flexible spines. Much of the binding has been done in forests and other outdoor spaces throughout Colorado.

Janice McDonald: "ThroughLines"

The “ThroughLines" series of collages are visual riffs on the unexpected landscapes of our minds as we address concerns like bandwidth and overwhelm, alongside mindfulness and purpose. Each piece represents a moment in time, full of multi-layered and competing thoughts, hopes, fears, dreams, and memories -- all moving forward and influencing each other — glimpses of the complex world of the self.

Mike Herburger: "Natural and Unnatural"

I am inspired by the temporal and unpredictable nature of the world around us. These photographs function as impressions of places–my attempt to capture in-between moments. Using a lensless pinhole camera, I am able to record incidental visual elements—coalescing light, movement, forms, and colors. The resulting dreamlike landscapes and cityscapes compel the viewer to interpret the images through the lens of their own memory and experience.
