Jan Harrison is an artist whose work involves empathy with the animal nature and the animal/human interface. Since 1979 her art has been connected with the philosophy of deep ecology, and is focused on the vulnerability of endangered species. In Harrison's work, animals relate to the world within an inner landscape. Her ongoing series is Animals in the Anthropocene. She speaks and sings in Animal Tongues, which she has performed at O+ in conjunction with her visual art.
Jan Harrison has exhibited widely throughout the United States and internationally, in exhibitions including "The Animals Look Back at Us," curator: Sara Lynn Henry, in New York. Her work was exhibited in "Animal.Anima.Animus," curator Linda Weintraub and Marketta Seppälä in museums in Finland, Holland, Canada, and PS1, New York. Her art is included within numerous public and private collections, has been the recipient of five grants and fellowships, and has been the subject of many essays and reviews.

Lindsey Wolkowicz (b.1981) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work revolves around the relationship between us and the spaces we occupy by exploring memory, perspective, relationship and psycho-dynamics. Both the influence of her hometown of Detroit, and her decade in New York City, can be felt through the presence of grand, sometimes dilapidated, architectural lines in her work, as well as her awareness of the body in space. In her drawings, figure, surface, lines, geometry and color simultaneously interrupt and support one another. Within three-dimensional space, objects and architectural surrounds are constructed to promote a physical and evocative connection with the body of the viewer. The work is not about representing a location but instead about presenting what is found there. These bodies exist in a situation as much as they do in a location. They seek to ground themselves in the "places" they occupy through their hands, feet, through touch and strength. But they are also nowhere. Intersecting lines, partial views of the body and planes of dislocated material produce windows into this experienced place.

My submitted work is from my Final Dress and Screen Shot Series.
These works capture moments in time from both live and broadcast media events.
I use the light, color and motion to create slightly blurry abstract images that evoke different thoughts and ideas for the viewers.
My photographs document the time captured that form these images of these travelers in time and space.
From the staticky "snow" on a television screen when a signal is not connecting to the bright colors of most programs, the television as a medium is a diverse pallet, which conjures up different thoughts and memories for each individual viewer. My photographs document the momentum and colorful moments.

Melamid was born into a Jewish family of Daniel Melamid [ru], a Soviet historian living in Moscow. In his early life, he attended the Stroganov Art Institute, where he collaborated with Vitaly Komar in the Russian Sots art movement (a parallel to the Western pop art movement). Known as a cynical Social Realist, Melamid began collaborating with Komar in the late 1960s; the two emigrated together to New York City from the Soviet Union in 1977. The duo created collaborative works as "Komar and Melamid". In 2003, the two artists decided to go their separate ways. Around this time, Melamid's first-born son, Dan, introduced him to the world of hip-hop, which included his clients and close friends Whoo Kid and 50 Cent. Melamid was intrigued by hip-hop society because of its rich history and world appeal, and began to paint the hip-hop portraits that have become his first solo exhibition since splitting with Komar, on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
