 Stephanie is an artist in a variety of media, gravitating toward the eerie in aesthetic. She graduated Alfred University with a Bachelors of Fine Art in 2015, and has continued artistic pursuits in every area of her life. Her paintings explore the mystery of shared spaces and strangers with darkened, obscure environments filled with enigmatic figures. She highlights the unknown in our everyday lives and questions mundane situations with a veil of darkness: representing the gaps in our knowledge about even the most familiar situations.

ERIC HADO

Eric Hado is an artist and technician in New York’s Hudson Valley. Inspired by nature and the world around him, much of his work includes found driftwood from the Hudson River. He incorporates repurposed metals using blacksmith and metal working techniques. Viewers will notice repurposed welding rods converted to flowing curves, pulsing moiré circles, the occasional bird feather, and 150-year-old landscaping iron throughout his work. Eric’s practice is ever evolving as he seeks new techniques and materials inspired by nature and the world around him.

DAVID REARDON

David Reardon has been drawing and painting his whole life. Almost strictly drawing in black and white charcoal until recently, color and paint are a somewhat new and exciting frontier. The idea of taking a part of himself, putting it out there and seeing if it sticks, continuously inspires David. Prior to creating the image, David comes up with a preliminary idea or feeling wants to communicate.  Reardon's work is eclectic, in his words "even disjointed," but the source of his work is simple; joy and pain.
