As a practicing geologist in the environmental consulting industry, Sara uses fabric dyes, sewn paper, acrylic paints, and mediums to replicate the impermanence of decaying materials found at industrial work sites. Her work highlights textures and compositions easily overlooked, like stained wood or rusted metal hidden by overgrown vegetation.
"I am intrigued by the subtleties of the slow organic processes that change our landscapes over time, and I like to create connections between those continual changes and our emotions through rhythmic compositions that are often void of content."
From an early age, Daniel has been fascinated by the spaces that surround and shape us, and the way we sculpt them as well. The son of a sign painter and a seamstress, he developed a keen eye for design while drawing inspiration from the urban environment he grew up in. His interests bloomed during his time at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where he discovered a new passion as well - printmaking. Upon graduation he attended an artist residency in Argentina, where he explored solar printmaking techniques and took inspiration from new surroundings. Daniel has since lectured about his work abroad, led classes and workshops, and continues to experiment with a variety of techniques and media across multiple disciplines.
"Growth. Decay. The passage of time and history of a location. All of these might be present in a single image when you look at my work. My pictures are amalgamations rooted in the tradition of landscape painting."
As a recipient of the 2016 Adobe Creativity Scholarship, awarded to students using creativity for social impact, Bedelyn graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a BFA in Industrial Design in 2020. Upon graduation, he won the Faculty Choice Award which honors a senior who demonstrates a clear, confident, and consistent design process. When not practicing design, Bedelyn provides mentorship to Boston Public School students attending the ArtWard Bound after school program at MassArt.
"My creative process is a mixture of both fine arts and design. I like to think I’m on a journey and the destination is the full satisfaction of whatever I may be working on at the time."
Mary sees art as a way to ask questions that are often neglected. She founded Raw Art Works (RAW), a nationally-recognized arts organization and the first statewide art therapy program for incarcerated youth in Massachusetts. She went on to build a community-based studio where innovative and compelling art concepts motivate teens to tell their stories. For over 30 years, Mary has curated exhibits that give us a rare view into the lives of youth who deserve to be seen and heard.
“I was ten when I realized that the only way to make sense of my little world was to constantly create. I soon learned that I was not alone. The way I make art reflects how I see the rhythm in relationships. I jump right in and quickly create some kind of visual chaos and then force myself to pause, look deeply, and find areas that need to recede — giving way to a sense of balance.”
Chris is a musician, photographer, illustrator, creative director and an expert in User Experience Design. Most notably, he undertook the massive challenge of redefining how one of the world’s largest financial institutions extended their brand into the digital realm. Chris spearheaded the creation of a dynamic visual language by orchestrating multiple, large teams of creatives and designers across multiple lines of business, technical platforms — and continents.
“My work is unconstrained by technique or scale. I draw upon my familiarity with a diversity of styles and media to pursue my artistic investigation.”
Working as an multidisciplinary designer, Jeremy has partnered with several culturally influential brands in creating immersive environments and experiences across the country. He has developed a practice that is often rooted in reflecting on his early childhood memories which are highlighted by his love of kitch, science fiction, and the natural world. These memories and their themes often lead to a mashup of aesthetics and materials that has become uniquely his own.
“As a multidisciplinary designer, my work primarily focuses on the conception and design of spaces and objects, and how these entities interact to create an experience.”
