is an actress and multimedia artist living and working in NYC. She is also co owner of the clothing brand verte. Her work is often culled from a deep appreciation of craft and community participation. She has organized and participated in several group exhibitions, and projects. Documenting these experiences through photography, her work has appeared in Vice, Pig and Vibe magazines.

Canadian-born artist Ben Tour (b. 1977) channels a dark, often haunting sense of humanism in his work. His observations deftly inform his paintings, enabling him to capture the essence of a character, and then distort that view any way he desires. Frenetic lines, swaths of color, and intimate angles all convey a sense that Tour may not only be drawing inspiration from the lives of strangers he observes, but manifesting his own personal experiences as well. Ben Tour lives on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia with his wife and two children.

Allison is a screen printer/artist/designer who lives and works out of Burlington Vermont. But don’t be fooled, she is Canadian, originally from MontrÊal, Quebec. Her screen printing love gained momentum while designing gig posters for bands like Black Moth Super Rainbow, Land of Talk, and The Stars, but she also has a soft spot for random art prints, illustration, books, and painting. She also thinks goggles are awesome.
