Katherine Rohrbacher – Los Angeles, CA
Katherine Rohrbacher is a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana and currently resides in Los Angeles, California. She received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, with a concentration in painting, in 2005.
She earned her MFA in 2009 from the Hoffberger School of Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art where she studied under the late Grace Hartigan, artists Joyce Kozloff and Timothy App and NYC art critic Dominique Nahas.
She also received a painting fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center and is a member of the Los Angeles Art Association.
Katherine’s most recent body of work is a series of self portraits exploring the crossroads of her past, present and future. Her use of pattern and glitter is a constant throughout her work which evokes a sense of hope and beauty, yet an underlying feeling of melancholy is always present.
Keri Joy Colestock – Pingree Grove, IL
I have been a professional contemporary artist since 2002. I reside in rural Illinois. My wish is to continue to create beautiful but also fun works of art fueled by passion and imagination. I am recycling found objects and having a blast! One man’s trash becomes a “Keri treasure!’ So the flea markets provide me with the items needed for my work. I specialize in creating “feel good” art sculptures but I also incorporate polymer clay in many of my pieces. Most are whimsical, unique & on the FuNkY side like me!
My artwork is also available in galleries in Illinois. One home is the 4Art Inc Gallery located within the Zhou B Art Center. Another is 317 Studio & Gallery in Rockford. I would like to further expand my artwork into more galleries & boutiques.
I am an artist with Lyme Disease who was told “art would be impossible” 13 years ago. I now have made 1500 pieces of original art.
