Constant/Change Artist Highlight: Matthew Steele

"My pieces are about imaginary places, mostly colorful abstract landscapes that are an escape and a dose of reality." Karmimadeebora McMillian's artwork features vibrant colors that draw the viewer in.

Constant/Change Artist Highlight: Matthew Steele

"Michael Clapp’s research explores myriad modes of representation to speculate on ‘scales of consciousness.’ His work co-opts the idea of scale and translates it across a range of dynamics and across matters of degree.
