About the Artists:
Andres Chaparro is a mixed media painter and collagist whose bold and expressive art is a visual representation of jazz music. "I work without premeditation simply following the path that each painting sets forth for me. Through my artwork I strive to create an example of ideas that reflect my desire to raise social consciousness, and cultural awareness.”

LeaAnn Cogswell is a sculptor devoted to the power that lies within the human form. "I consider it a great privilege to work regularly from life. Infinitely varied, the human figure is fascinating and amazingly beautiful, even in all its not-so-perfect forms. A powerful visual subject, it always holds new surprises.”

Cathy Doocy is a painter of contemporary landscapes. “In my work, the representation of a ‘landscape’ is not the final goal. Instead, I use the vernacular of landscape painting as a method for exploring composition and color. My work is about painting not landscape; about illusion not representation; about drawing not twigs and branches.”

JoeSam is a mixed media artist, who prefers to use materials in the state in which they were found. “My work reflects the fact that I’m a Black artist. My colors, patterns, and designs are multi-faceted and combine many parallel elements in a single piece of work analogous to the way African derived music combines parallel rhythmic and melodic elements.”

Michelle Hawran is a painter of her own family history. “I have a fear of time, a fear of forgetting my family’s past. I use my work to transform that anxiety into moments of warmth. Not like fading memories of the past at all, but snapshots that capture the vibrancy of that exact moment, years ago.”

Xarea Lockhart is an emerging clothing and accessories designer from Connecticut. Xarea hopes to use her work as a vehicle for love and representation for the black community. Xarea also aims to highlight sustainability, ethical production and craftsmanship with her pieces.

Adam Lenz is a composer, multidisciplinary artist, educator, and producer based in Windsor, Connecticut. His work spans composition, sound art, installation, performance, and works on paper. Examining themes of fantasy, memory, materiality, and identity, Adam’s work has been presented at internationally recognized venues in over a dozen countries.

Amy Hoffman is a photographer and painter. Her work is inspired by the beauty inherent in nature, exploring perspective and the forms and hues that change with passing seasons. “I enjoy seeking out the hidden complexities in the deceptive simplicity of our natural surroundings.”

This exhibition is supported in part by local businesses, organizations, and individuals from our community.
