DELIBERATION slow and careful movement of thought
As a collective, the artists of PROJECT 16 posses the unique ability to create works that resonate deeply within the viewer with a resounding yet subtle voice. This grouping of artists were intentionally selected in part because of their amazing ability to reinvent their practice and to continually discover new uses for materials. These practitioners utilize their materials as a means to communicate with their practice in the spirit of investigation and discovery. While their process is layered, dynamic and rigorous their work is often peaceful and visually sparse. Upon further investigation we can see how their process has informed their work while almost capturing the very essence of the artist within each work of art they create. Whether capturing the ephemeral, prolonging the beauty of a moment, or inventing new approaches to traditional and once forgotten methods, they create art works that captivate the viewer in a delicate exchange of complexity and sparseness. Their clarity of intention is the result of their passionate desire to create works that invite us into a quiet space of reflection. Stephanie Harris, 2017

Artist Biographies Daniel Graham (b. 1979 Charlottesville VA, lives in Georgetown, KY)
Daniel was raised in a military family and moved every two years for most of his life. He comes from a family of storytellers who love investigation and creativity. Introduced and encouraged into creative outlets at an early age Daniel has never forgotten the lessons of craft from his mother (a basket maker and calligrapher) and the lessons of engineering and risk from his father. His training in the Arts comes from an Undergraduate Degree at the University of Florida in Printmaking and a Masters Degree from the University of Georgia with the same emphasis. Between the two programs of formal education, Daniel lived in downtown Washington D.C. and trained as a custom woodworker under woodworker Dennis Sitka. Currently Daniel is an Associate Professor of Art and Chair of the Art Department at Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky, where he teaches a variety of courses including Sculpture, Printmaking, 3D Design, Ceramics and Package Design. Although he spent most of his life moving around the country Daniel has found a personal connection to the landscape and waterways of central Kentucky. This is especially true of the Ohio River, which has inspired a number of his work. Daniel lives in Georgetown with his wife Holly, daughter Olive, son Thatcher, and their dogs Clover and Cricket.
Todd Herzberg (b. 1988 Saginaw, MI, lives in Lexington, KY)
Todd Herzberg received his BFA from Central Michigan University in 2012 and is currently an MFA candidate at the University of Kentucky. He works predominantly in the print processes of relief and lithography and has recently began the incorporation of animation and installation. The three combine to create complex stories with absurdist overtones. Through these processes he explores themes of self-esteem, coming of age rituals, maleness, and aging. His work has been displayed in the U.S. and abroad including: Hilo Gallery at the University of Hawaii, University Gallery at Inner Mongolia University in China, Firehouse Gallery in Baton Rouge, LA, Metrospace Gallery in East Lansing, MI, and Bolivar Gallery at the University of Kentucky.
Darrell Kincer (b. 1975 Lexington KY, lives in Lexington, KY)
Darrell Kincer is a native of Lexington, KY who has studied and worked in photography since the late 90’s. He began exploring the medium as a student at Asbury University, completing a BA in Art. Later he attended the Savannah College of Art and Design where he earned an MFA in photography. Currently he is an Associate Professor of Art at Georgetown College, teaching courses in photography and graphic design. His research explores alternative photographic methods such as mordançage, as well as the crossover between traditional analog and digital photographic imaging. Topics for his work explore a sense and understanding of place, along with the curious beauty found in the seemingly incidental moments of life.
David Kenton Kring (b.1986 Frankfort KY, lives in Lexington, KY)
David Kenton Kring is a full-time potter and ceramic sculptor, living and working in Lexington, KY, whose work is collected nationwide. Kring’s newest body of work experiments with surface texture as metaphor. Kring spent 2016 balancing a growing pottery business with demos, lectures, and gallery shows of his newest figurative works.
Marco Logsdon (b. 1964 Seville, Spain, lives in Lexington KY)
Marco was born on a US air force base in Seville, Spain in 1964. His parents returned to the states shortly thereafter and divorced when he was 6. His mother returned to Arkansas where he spent many formative years. He was very influenced by his mother’s interest in sewing and drawing. She is very meticulous and he learned a lot from her about Southern craftsmanship and being resourceful when it comes to finding materials to work with. Logsdon attended Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky in the mid 80’s. He has called the Bluegrass Region home since then. He has always had a studio and his desire to create art is a necessary part of his existence. Whether he sells what he produces is a secondary concern; the process keeps the artist from feeling lost. Marco has shown his work in galleries across the US and he tries to exhibit his work when proper opportunities arise. He has always worked on non-art projects to create a balance. His hope is that this balance and his craftsmanship goals are evident in the work, connected to the world.
Dana Rogers (b.1990 Woodstock VA, lives in Lexington KY)
Dana Rogers likes to photograph love and the stories that come with it. Love inspires her and helps her feel connected to the world. For Rogers, love is everywhere; it’s in the trees and it’s in the feathers she finds in her backyard. It’s where people are dancing or taking a drive in the country. Sometimes it is hard for people to see the love that’s right in front of them, and her intention is to help them see it for themselves. She hopes that her work helps people to make a stronger connection with their own love; to feel loved; to be proud of themselves, of their work, families and their community. Rogers primarily shoots in digital, but has a deep passion for film photography and alternative printing methods, including wet plate collodion, instant film, cyanotype and more. For Rogers, there is something magical about creating physical prints that are tangible and long-lasting .
