Donnie Copeland works primarily with painted paper to produce non-objective, collaged canvases that emphasize pattern, texture, color and mark. The works are a synthesis and response to the visuality of subjects such as planted fields along the Mississippi and the art of distant peoples and cultures. His work has been included in exhibits at the Kansas City Artistâ€™s Coalition and the Arkansas Arts Center and in solo and group exhibits in Texas, Louisiana, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Minnesota. He lives with his family in Arkadelphia, Arkansas and teaches drawing and painting at Ouachita Baptist University.
Matthew Farina is a Brooklyn-based painter. His work is created through a memory-driven embrace of atmosphere, color, light and geometry. Through this process, his paintings become landscape-inspired, chromatically-charged spaces that articulate a personal syntax of form and shape. Farina received a BFA from the University of Pennsylvania and a four-year studio certificate in printmaking from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Farina has also worked with the Yale Repertory Theater, the Yale University Art Gallery, Franklin Parrasch Gallery and the School of Visual Arts.
