Elisa B Schmidt grew up in Southeast Michigan with a love of cars and the talent to paint. After graduating from Siena Heights University with a degree in art, she combined the two and created a visual style that is literally reflected in all of her work.

Locally, she has shown at Absolute Gallery and Katalyst Gallery in Old Town Lansing, The Technology and Innovation Center, Okemos Library, Gracie's Place in Williamston, and most currently Keys to Creativity in the Lansing Mall and Studio Retreat in St. John.

Kenneth Hunter

Kenneth Hunter is a painter, printmaker, and public works artist. His work focuses on the tension between medium acting as storyteller and undefined symbolism. He describes his works as a "life" where each piece has a different story to tell and came to their respective ends in different ways; but, with similar materials. The work is meant to be digested slowly as the viewer looks at the surface, to the medium, and finally the image to tell the result of all things, from how you start to where you end, and the effect of making choices.

A recent graduate from Michigan State University, Kenneth has already been recognised by the Arts Council of Greater Lansing with the 2016 Artist in Community Grant to install a labyrinth at Patriarche Park in East Lansing, MI later this year.

Paul & Nick Such

We ponder. We innovate. We design. We amaze. We've always viewed our sculptures as an exercise in improvisation, from start to finish. Rather than beginning with a preconceived idea of the finished piece, our sculptures first begin to take shape in the initial process of selecting their constituent scrap components, as certain pieces of steel suggest certain aesthetic and structural possibilities. These possibilities are then further explored; some rejected, some retained, and then eventually executed as composition proceeds into construction.

Buzzard Acres Studios is comprised of a father and son team, with over 55 years of combined metal fabrication and construction, the pieces are not only artistically sound but structural marvels as well.  The technique is just as important as the artistry.  A piece from Buzzard Acres is a legacy focus that will bring artistic enjoyment for generations to come.

Robin Theatre

Kelly Boyle

I’ve been a printmaker for many years but have recently been exploring other artforms, mainly collage and painting with acrylics. The collages on display here are similar in style to my screenprints – sharp edges, simple shapes, bright colors – but the process is more spontaneous, less technical. I love the playfulness this form allows.

I’d expected the same flat, abstracted style to carry over into my paintings – the Boogie Hands series – but the more I studied the pianists’ hands at work, the more my brush wanted to capture the beautiful form and musculature I was seeing, and canvas after canvas, my paintings became tighter and more realistic.

Piano at this level is both an artistic and athletic feat, and painting those hands a delightful challenge.
