Smith&Jones About the Artists: Joseph Barral is a painter and graphic artist. His Brooklyn studio / darkroom is where he creates his pieces. Working back and forth between several pieces, Joseph’s work combines, and sometimes blurs, the lines between his two passions; painting and photography. Each piece influences the outcome of the other. Most recently experimenting with sculpture, collage, photo emulsion, chemical painting and cameras, Joseph’s work is driven by both curiosity and patience. Samm Cohen, born in New York, began making intense, passionate artwork before she could write. With painting and photography from a young age and the influence of the study of psychology, her voice has been growing for over 30 years in multiple mediums; whatever feels right and seems pertinent to the message being aesthetically conveyed. The raw and honest quality of the work demonstrates devotion to her art. Samm has shown in over 30 various art exhibitions, (both solo and group), and has published/interviewed in a number of different journals. (sammcohen.com)

Jest Another Art Show Julie Goldberg is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work exposes layers of human consciousness and material anomalies. Her artistic practice is rooted in the body and includes movement, colors, sound, video, and performance. Julie moved to NYC after receiving a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from the University of Oregon. She has since performed and shown work in galleries, theaters, house parties and public spaces all over the city. In addition to developing her own solo performance work, Julie currently dances for Emily Smith/ Not for reTAIL, contributes to the online journal Invisible Artists, and shows work of various mediums through Smith&Jones. Australian born artist Prudence Groube’s world of MIMACHAN inhabits the space between the seen and unseen, inviting the viewer to view through the candy colored lens of a pop culture drifter. The world of MIMACHAN does not have to make sense. There is no earth, no sky, no boundaries. In this place a new language, a new way of being becomes possible. Prudence’s work is in private collections both domestically and internationally. She has shown in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Miami in both solo and group shows. She is the founder and curator of COLLECTnyc - dedicated to the support and continuing education of emerging artists, creating events and programs that allow artists to interact with the community whom they seek to serve through their cultural contribution.

Solo exhibitions in New York have included Portrait of the Cast of You in Eye (Dumbo Sky, 2013) and FOOT | KNOTS (Project Space Envelope, 2012). He has organized exhibitions for Undercurrent Projects (Books Without Words, 2014), Terrazzo Art Projects (Se Cayo Todo, 2014), and the Brooklyn-based Pop-Up initiative Smith&Jones.
