Danielle Graves is an Indianapolis based artist who works with a wide range of mediums from zines, to sculpture, to plush paintings to explore femininity. Endlessly repurposing imagery and recycling materials, she develops and invites you into a world of her own creation.

Ed Ryan is a designer and artist currently based in Kalamazoo, MI, where he recently completed his BFA in Graphic Design at Western Michigan University’s Gwen Frostic School of Art. His current work focuses on the tension between digital and physical spaces and modes of production, looking for opportunities to use contextual transitions to shift meaning, interrogate value, and build on existing methods of image-making. He is currently traveling in Europe studying bookbinding, papermaking, and traditional letterpress printing. He plans to move to New York City upon his return to pursue professional practice.

Thomas Joseph Leffers is a Fort Wayne native. Thomas studied painting at the University of Saint Francis. While painting, he tries to allow spontaneity to take over and uses each mark made on the canvas or panel as a representation of the chaos and hectic nature of everyday life. The human brain is constantly being challenged from multiple external sources at all times. Thomas’ goal is to take this constant absorption of external energy and refocus it into a positive and beautiful painting.
