Ilene Godofsky

"My work is about exploring the connection between the human experience and craft. I am fascinated by the precise nature of craftsmanship, and the sense of exact decisiveness in every step of the process. I draw inspiration from studying craft throughout history, and attempt to work intuitively in my own pieces, while keeping cultural and historical references in mind. My weavings attempt to evoke a quiet moment for the viewer, where subtle shifts are picked up in the details, and the beauty of things that are created over time is recognized. I hand weave all of my fabrics, using a combination of natural and synthetic fibers. I then develop a photograph on the fabric using either Cyanotype or Van Dyke Brown chemistry. By combining alternative photography with hand weaving, I attempt to create works thats speak to the innate human aesthetic and necessity to create, which has universally revealed itself in every culture.

Regina Imbsweiler

"My jewelry pieces are improvisations on themes of free flowing as well as classical forms. The contrast between sterling silver, often oxidized, and 22k gold inspires the play with textures and patterns. Fine wires act similar to lines in drawings, and the use of gold balls can be bold or very delicate, depending on their sizes. Other favorite metals are 18k gold and platinum. I love luminous cabochons, aquamarines for their silky shine and their largeness, tourmalines for the range of colors. My goal is to keep an almost ancient simplicity for each piece, with the overall collection having a contemporary feel, reflecting complex references between materials, colors, and textures." - Regina Imbsweiler

Neil Clark

"My books are the result of my fascination with strange objects and my love of the book form. The smell and sound of a book fill me with a certain calming satisfaction and the mystery of a secret place I always wanted to be. I combine the Ethiopian style bookbinding technique with the spontaneity of assemblage. The result is an object that comes from that hideaway, that secret cubbyhole that my inner self still longs to visit." - Neil Clark
