About the Artist: Lindsey Wolkowicz is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores the ways we build and occupy space through memory, perspective, relationship and psychodynamics. Both the influence of her hometown of Detroit, and her decade in New York City can be felt through the presence of grand, sometimes dilapidated, architectural lines in her work, as well as her awareness of the body in space. In her drawings, figure, surface, lines, geometry and color simultaneously interrupt and support one another. Within three-dimensional space, objects and architectural surrounds are constructed to promote a physical and evocative connection with the body of the viewer. While the human form as a subject moves in and out of the work, the human relationship to place is always present through scale, perspective, and associations with color, pattern and form. Drawing is at the center of her studio practice but Wolkowicz’s work also moves into the realm of sculpture, photography, and performance/video installation through ongoing collaborative projects with her partner Dillon Paul. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and she received her MFA in Painting/ Drawing from Pratt Institute in 2009. She recently moved from Brooklyn to Kingston, NY where she now works and lives with her partner and their daughter.

MATTHEW THOMAS TAYLOR
About the Artist: Hi, I’m Matt. I find people fascinating and I’ve been using photography to study them for the past 15 years. I believe everyone could benefit from forming a mission statement for their life and mine is currently the lofty goal of “helping unify society through art”…even if my imagery doesn’t end up uniting society, i hope it at least inspires you to do something constructive, like question your own place in the world.

ZELDA (aka Judith Z. Miller)
MEDIUM: Drawing/Illustration, Painting, Performance, Photography, Sculpture
About the Artist: Zelda (aka Judith Z. Miller) is a multifaceted artist who lives in an erotic, musical, spiritual universe. As a feminist Jew who studies shamanism, she is inspired by the beauty of nature and the guiding force of her intuition as she explores the themes of connection to the Earth, spirituality, sexuality and gender. She sculpts, draws, writes, performs, photographs, and is an ecstatic dancer/percussionist/healer. Zelda has lovingly transformed her apartment at the Lace Mill into a shamanic healing space with hand-carved trees flying in mid-air from the vaulted ceilings surrounded by photographs of nature, spiritual self-portraits, collages, and mannequins decorated with healing amulets. Zelda co-founded The Fine Line Actors Theatre in Washington DC and performed at such venues as Source, GALA Hispanic Theatre and the Kennedy Center in DC, in NYC at WOW Café Theatre and Dixon Place, and with the TMI Project in Kingston. Currently Zelda is workshopping Que Será, Será (Whatever Will Be, Will Be), a multi-media one-person show that chronicles the joys and challenges of navigating non-binary Queerness from a childhood in the 1950s to adulthood. She published in Inside Arts magazine, The Washington Post, and American Theatre magazine. Zelda currently resides at the Lace Mill artist residence in Kingston NY with her Great Dane “Z.”
