Keer Tanchak

Tanchak won the Artist Fellowship Award from the Illinois Arts Council in 2009 and Brucebo residency in Visby, Sweden in 2003.
Lina Tharsing
Lina Tharsing is a painter and photographer whose work explores the harmonies between the two mediums, and their ability to capture and alter the natural world. Often using photographs as initial reference points, her paintings transpose these snapshots to painted studies that invite a closer look at scenes of the poetic within the prosaic. Photographic flattening lends itself to painted play with dimensionality, pattern, and light, ever so often slipping the viewer into mystical or transportive realms as memory comes to predominantly inform the image. The core of Tharsing’s work is based in the natural world, in its manipulations and interconnectedness to our daily lives — as food, still life, study, or encompassing environment. Soccer goals become sculptural portals to other places and grass tangled and woven into a chain-link fence becomes a tapestry of layers in quietly observed moments. For Tharsing, the coexistence of the natural world and the built environment deserve considerate attention, as either one can be transformed into something otherworldly through the other. Lina Tharsing lives and works in Kentucky. Recent solo and group exhibitions include: 21c Museum Hotel (2019), the University of Kentucky Art Museum, the Lexington Art League (2019), The Food Connection at the University of Kentucky (2018), the Elaine de Kooning House (2018), and Atlanta Contemporary (2017). In 2012, she was named a superstar of Southern art by Oxford American. She has been featured in Hyperallergic, ARTnews, Burnaway, Whitehot Magazine, Garden & Gun Magazine, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Journal, and Booooooom.
Damian Stamer
Damian Stamer received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a Jacob K. Javits fellow in 2013 and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Herberger Institute of Art and Design and Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University as a National Merit scholar in 2007. He also studied at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts as a Fulbright grantee, and the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart, Germany as a Rotary Ambassadorial scholar. Damian's contemporary paintings explore themes of memory and loss through formal and conceptual approaches. Detailed architectural forms reminiscent of his childhood memories of the South are combined with gestural brushstrokes that push and pull the images into existence. The artist lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, and Hillsborough, North Carolina.
Adrienne Elise Tarver
Adrienne Elise Tarver is an interdisciplinary artist based in Atlanta and Brooklyn with a practice that spans painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and video. Her work addresses the complexity and invisibility of the black female identity in the Western landscape--from the history within domestic spaces to the fantasy of the tropical seductress. She has exhibited nationally and abroad, including solo exhibitions at Ochi Projects in Los Angeles; Wave Hill in the Bronx, NY; Victori+Mo in New York; BRIC Project Room in Brooklyn; and A-M Gallery in Sydney, Australia. She has been commissioned for an upcoming New York MTA project, received the inaugural artist commission prize for Art Aspen in 2019 and was selected by ArtNet as one of “14 Emerging Female Artists to watch in 2017.” She has been featured in online and print publications including the New York Times, Brooklyn Magazine, ArtNet, Blouin Art Info, Whitewall Magazine, Hyperallergic, Ingenue Magazine, among others.

She is currently a member of the Studio Artists Program at Atlanta Contemporary and is represented by Whitespace Gallery.
Charis Ammon
Charis Ammon’s practice is focused around quotidian encounters with the urban landscape. Her compositions ask us to ponder and reconsider things, such as construction sites or sidewalks, that we encounter as we navigate our daily lives but which we may pass by or disregard as being pedestrian or static. She activates the contours of the cityscape by producing a richly painted surface which invites her viewers into a new experience with the urban environment. Charis Ammon is part of a long history of artists fascinated by the intersection of art and everyday life. As Robert Rauschenberg famously declared “Painting relates to both art and life. Neither can be made - I try to act in the gap.” Rauschenberg incorporated everyday objects into his artworks and Ammon’s own impetus is to walk around the urban environment and photograph everyday scenes from urban life, which she then translates into paintings that depict sites of production or work, such as construction scenes or sidewalks. Ammon operates in a pictorial space that asks us to a reconsider what we may otherwise disregard or ignore. Her works offer a deeper, more emotional engagement with seemingly neutral or pedestrian urban scenes that are anything but devoid of content or meaning. Charis Ammon (born 1992, Dallas, TX) received a BFA in Painting from Texas State University (2015) and an MFA in Painting at The University of Houston (2018). In 2017, she participated in the DUST Residency Program in Marfa, TX. Recent solo exhibitions include "Maintenance", Art League Houston (2019), "Still Hot in the Shade", Inman Gallery, Houston, TX (2018) and "Rhythm: Works on Paper", Project Gallery at the University of Houston (2018). She was most recently included in "Moving Still", a group show at San Jacinto College North. She was a Hunting Art Prize Finalist in 2016, and her work is included in the permanent collection of The University of Houston. Ammon lives and works in Houston, TX.
Amy Pleasant
Amy Pleasant’s work intuits the one and the many. The images delight in the tender articulations of the human body as individuated by gestures and slouches, tiny flaws and distinguishing marks. Pleasant maneuvers with ease between drawing, painting, ceramic sculpture, and installation; between small and large-scale compositions commanding equal visual attention and gravitas. Her minimalist compositions dissolve traditional barriers between figuration and abstraction, exploring the body as simplified, yet loaded, narrative gestures, full of implied humanity. Elbows, feet, touching toes, a gentle curve, all bodily expressions become linguistic ones, like letters generating the visual words of a poem. Parts of the body interact through repetition, emphasis, simplicity, and suggestion. Little memories of touch or familiarity emerge. Amy Pleasant earned her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from The Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia. She has exhibited throughout the United States and recently received a 2019 Alabama State Council for the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship and was a 2018 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow. Her first monograph was just published in collaboration with Institute 193 and Frank. She recently participated in the 2019 Atlanta Biennial A Thousand Tomorrows co-curated by Daniel Fuller and Phillip March Jones. Pleasant’s solo exhibitions include Geary Contemporary, New York, Jeff Bailey Gallery, New York City and Hudson, New York, whitespace gallery in Atlanta, Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Birmingham Museum of Art, Alabama, and Atlanta Contemporary. Her work has been reviewed in Artforum, Art Papers, Burnaway, The Brooklyn Rail, and Art in America, among others.

Kalup Linzy

Brian Rideout
Brian Rideout makes pictures about pictures. His work investigates contemporary images, sourced from print and online, for their art historical relevance, as a continuation of the history of painting and image production. Rideout's works comprise a narrative of art, architecture, and object following an undulating cycle of definition, utility, and design, softly dramatizing the multiple registers that art has come to occupy and employ over time as a material thing wholly existing in the world. He is interested in art as document, as decoration, as an ideological accessory, as technological or functional support.
Clara Varas
Clara Varas (Havana, Cuba 1972) received her BFA in painting from the School of Visual Arts in 1995. Varas’ body of work explores personal ties to earth, land, commonplace items and industrial materials. Mainly associated with the concept of home or home construction, she also considers the transient nature of contemporary society, migration and the plight of displaced persons. She considers her work not unfinished, rather, a constantly evolving entity reacting to its immediate surroundings. In 2015, she was a finalist for a Cintas Foundation Fellowship in Visual Arts. Her work is held in the permanent collection of Pérez Art Museum Miami.
