Artists:
Andrew Graham was born in Evanston, Illinois in 1980 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.  He received a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art in 2008.  He has been in numerous group exhibitions including ‘Mixed Messages’ at LaMama Galleria, ‘Brucennial: Miseducation’ at 350 West Broadway, and ‘Netiquette’ at Camel Art Space.AndrewGrahamStudio.com.

 

Matthew Spiegelberg was a gifted painter and musician. At the heart of Spiegelberg’s work was the gulf between two modes of expression: the long history of painting and  and the digital images of our everyday lives. His work attempted to  make the two meet.

 

Janos Stone (American, 1975-) is an inventor and new/mixed media artist based in New York City. His practice blends digital technology (digital video, fabrication, video games, computer programs/code, etc.) with the formal traditions of sculpture.
