Alignment - Jordan Scott
The artists utilize materials as varied as paint, ink, canvas, paper, wood, ceramic, photographs, prints, text, found objects, plastic packaging, historical images, star charts, recycled medical diagnostic film, and cancelled postage stamps. 
Temporary Insanity - Marya Veeck
By mapping places, charting memories, and tracing the elements of identity, the nine artists present a visual atlas of our interior worlds. 
Galileo - Kass Copeland
Kass Copeland’s box assemblages have a keen sense of personal intimacy and memory-laden nostalgia built into their subtle forms and dream-like narratives. 
Abyss - Deanna Krueger
Deanna Krueger’s photographic close-ups of abstract paint strokes evoke aerial and satellite landscapes. Her textile-like wall-hanging utilizes recycled X-ray and MRI film to create an external landscape made from internal views. 
City Map / Detail - Installation by Alan Emerson Hicks and Jason Messinger
Alan Emerson Hicks constructs and weaves plastic remnants and recycled packaging into exuberant and richly detailed sculptures that speak to personal identity. He collaborates with Jason Messinger in installation "City Map", and he will construct two new 'Super Hero' sculptures over time in the gallery front window.
Blueprint - Jason Messinger
Jason Messinger’s ceramic and porcelain tile murals emphasize the beauty and humor of maps, blueprints, postcards, and directions. 
Double Dutch - Matt Nichols

Matt Nichols’ patterned collage paintings evoke multi-layered memories, and narrate life as complex and beautiful. 
Purple Flower at Construction Site - Emeily Rapport
Emily Rapport presents realistic but atmospheric paintings of urban buildings in transitional states, and exposes the potent symbolism of homes in our psyche. 
Grand Traverse / Detail - Jordan Scott
Jordan Scott uses cancelled postage stamps to create elaborate maps and forms, utilizing raw materials that have already traveled the globe. 
 
Layers of Language - Marya Veeck / portraits of artist studios series

Marya Veeck illuminates her own personal story in her richly detailed still-life paintings, and reflects the art practices of other artists in a new series of intimate portraits of their art studios.
