Erica Rucker Multimedia/Literature Artist Statement: Much of her work both as a writer and visual artist is based on memories and always the human experience. The way light dances through glass or a cluster of leaves when looking up at a tree, all remind her of things she appreciated as a child. The way that we speak, look and interact finds its way onto her pages and into her photographs.
Skylar Smith Artist Statement: Skylar Smith is an artist, curator, and educator. Her work deals with micro and macro perceptions of the natural world, and human-scale politics that influence perception.
