About Kimber Berry Kimber Berry received her BFA from the University of Southern California in 1998 and her MFA from Claremont Graduate University in 2001. Since she began exhibiting her work, Berry has been in numerous group and solo exhibitions. As an abstract painter, she has captured the attention of the global art community with her explosively colorful, visually dense, multi-dimensional canvases and installations. Berry masterfully integrates elements of the digital world and pure paint. Using digitally manipulated photographs of paint within her complex compositions, she creates a dance between the virtual world and the organic universe and challenges the viewer to discern between them. The highly manipulated surfaces of her paintings illustrate how highly manipulated nature has become, and aims to raise important social questions as to how we live with nature She has received a lot of positive attention from art critics and curators on the West Coast and has been featured in solo and group shows in New York, LA, Atlanta and London. She has been part of exhibits at the Riverside Museum and the Huntington Beach Art Center in California. Her work is in public and private collections around the world. Kimber has been featured in Hamptons Cottages & Gardens, Ocean Home and Flaunt. In 2013, she created an installation at Terminal 3 at LAX.

About Stephanie Cate Stephanie Cate is an abstract painter based out of Los Angeles, California. She spent most of her childhood in France, before relocating to Los Angeles, California at fourteen. She spent a couple of years as an apprentice for a muralist in Santa Monica, painting large scale murals for casinos in Las Vegas and private residences before she decided to pursue her own artistic path. Cate attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, receiving a BFA in painting. Being surrounded by the history and architecture of France as a child and the grand decaying beauty of former centuries left an early impression on her that still influences her work to this day. After working for over a decade in a photographic based mixed-media process, Cate returned to her original love of pure abstraction to delve in further and reconnect with freshness and liberation of texture, line, shape and color.

Stephanie's work is in public and private collections including Kelly Wearstler, Renee Zellweger, Annabeth Gish, Mr. Avi Amiel (President, Art Collector International Magazine), Rasa Center for Yoga (Oregon) and Wynn Tower Suites (Las Vegas).


About Yasemin Kackar Demirel Yasemin Kackar Demirel was born in Istanbul, received her BFA at Mimar Sinan University, Faculty of Fine Arts in Turkey, and her MFA in DeKalb (IL). She currently lives in New York with her husband and young son. Her work is a fragmented and reconstructed journey through the places she has lived and traveled, both real and imagined. According to Kackar Demirel, "Being a Turkish native residing in the United States, I have been influenced by both the architectural/ physical and the emotional aspects of certain environments and view them as great potentials to narrate stories through my works. To the viewer, the plot of these narratives can be familiar or unknown, boundless or limited, conquered or yet to be discovered. I aim to create a ‘chaotic harmony’ by maintaining a balance between these contrasting concepts via the language of abstraction. In other words, it is an act of balancing integration and independence that I intend to reflect through my works. Kackar-Demirel has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in the US and Turkey. Her work is also in the Ipek-Ahmet Merey Foundation in Istanbul, Turkey.

About Marie Danielle Leblanc Canadian artist, Marie Danielle Leblanc, was born in Trois-Rivières (Quebec) and has lived and worked in Montreal (Quebec) since 1990. Her paintings transform landscapes into poetic worlds. Her deeply saturated palettes bring new life to the sea, land and sky. And she transports her viewers to timeless and imaginary landscapes.

Many artworks in this series were inspired by her two month Trek in Nepal in 2014 and other travels around the world. During her travels, she likes to write down her thoughts, make a note of the weather or the name of a place, take pictures and collect images. Leblanc’s travel diary is an ideal instrument for her. Whether she is driving on the highway or in the open country, walking on never-ending beaches or rocks stroked by the sea, it is through her travels that the artist captures landscapes that stretch into the vista. She has participated in twenty solo exhibitions, and more than fifty group exhibitions. Her work has been shown throughout Canada and in Paris, Sydney, Mexico and Tokyo. It is in public and private collections worldwide. .

About Paula Brett From color-infused paintings to video self-portraits, Paula Brett’s broad body of work incorporates various combinations of media dealing with ideas such as created identity, coincidence, ritual, and transitory spaces. She has exhibited work in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Budapest, Hungary; and Romania. According to Paula, "I am an artist who experiments with interactions. By testing the reactions between various art media and subject matter, my intent is to allow connections between different ideas, images and objects to reveal a new understanding for both the observer and the artist. My process often employs chance operations, the notion of “play”, and spontaneous creation. These techniques are then worked and reworked until some sort of balance between the conscious and subconscious is reached. My work often involves the absurd, created identity, coincidence, ritual, personal anecdote, and humor." Paula holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Media from Columbia College Chicago. She currently resides in Atlanta where she maintains a studio. About John Conn John Conn got his start as a Marine Combat photographer and later earned his BFA at the School of Visual Arts in New York. As a freelance photographer and writer, he has captured a range of subjects photojournalism delving into political and social issues, nature and landscapes, architecture, and underwater images. His work has appeared in: New York Times Sunday Magazine; Time/Life Books; IMAX Films; Village Voice; Human Rights Magazine; Shutterbug Magazine; Hasseleblad Magazine; American Photographer; to name a few. Starting in 1970, John traveled to South Africa capturing images of the people and social divide of Aparteid. His iconic Subway series shot between the mid 1970’s and 1982 in New York City is part of the permanent collection of The New York Historical Society and Hoboken Historical Museum. In 2010, John Conn spent 45 days in Antarctica and Patagonia, traveling and hiking to capture the land and seascapes. In 2014/15 John began a series of treks across the US photographing Americans, similar to what Robert Frank did in the late 1950’s. In 2015/16, he spent a month in Cuba photographing the people and surroundings.

About Allyson Monson Emerging photographer Allyson Monson transforms color and ordinary objects into painterly images. From a young age, Allyson always had a love for texture and color. Her specialized studies were textiles, merchandising and design at the University of Rhode Island and interior design at THE Studio Arts Center International in Florence, Italy. According to Allyson, "It is apparent that light and movement along with texture is what i see behind the lens. My ability to see ordinary objects differently is what makes my work personal. My love for color and OFTEN transforms life into a painting..."My images evoke light, movement, texture and color. My ability to see everyday objects differently, beyond the naked eye is what makes my photographs original. A new perspective on ordinary urban and suburban life." Growing up in the suburbs of New York she had the city at her fingertips. The fast action and energy of metropolitan cities remains her favorite subject. Allyson currently live in Fairfield County, Connecticut with her husband, two children and dog,
