john ros Harrisonburg, VA Mixed Media Installation Website i create durational, site-responsive interventions that involve a process of taking up residence within a place to fully engage with the location, its surroundings and every element within it.  my exploration begins without parameters, allowing for the possible and impossible.  delving into the idiosyncratic elements of each space, assembling and disassembling, shifting, accumulating and rearranging material, subtle dynamics and possibilities are emphasized.  all components are sourced on site and can include building materials, refuse and discarded objects, light sources, natural light and sound, as well as data, research materials and objects from collections and archives.  over time, in creating spatial tensions and contradictions within these subtle, often minimal environments, the viewer’s sensitivity is intensified.  potential for agency and new opportunities become apparent as the inconspicuous moments that surround us are amplified, and the quiet sounds within our larger systems of operation may be sensed.

Jon Henry Harrisonburg, VA Social Sculpture Website I seek to develop new connections, visions, communities, and economies in my work. My practice is rooted in sculpture;  I am particularly interested in space’s social, relational, and communal forms. My work is influenced by abject, direct action, relational aesthetics, and camp.  As an interdisciplinary artist, I work to instigate changes, dialogues, and transformations; conversely, being an interdisciplinary artist acknowledges a fluid modality; I am able to promiscuously move between fields, practices, and materials in pursuit of liberating visions, languages, and landscapes.  Since moving back to Virginia, I have become more interested in creating works based in and on the land. Part of this project includes the development of an artist residency, Old Furnace Artist Residency, which offers (free) creative spaces to encourage emerging, community based, and/or politically motivated art. The project services as the over arching title and ‘institution’ for a variety of my community and land based projects.

Nadia Louderback Luray, VA Oil and Water Media Paintings Website Born in Alexandria, Egypt, I now live with my husband on our Virginia farm where we raised our two sons.  My work place, Studio Portico, is tucked away in an English styled garden behind our home. It is a perfect setting for my love of vivid colors and painting flowers. It’s also nice place to greet art guests as well as holding small shows. For years, my passion has been painting in watercolors, primarily flowers and landscapes. In more recent times, I have begun to paint with oils. Thankfully, my many years of training has given me a good foundation for this new medium, but in many ways I feel like I am embarking on a total new path.  I love painting with more spontaneity and enjoy the bold colorful impressionistic strokes. It is very exciting.  I was fortunate to study at The Art League School in Alexandria, VA and James Madison University.  As a member of many community art organizations and a signature member of the Shenandoah Valley Watercolor Society I have shown in numerous juried and non juried shows.   My most treasured experience is having had the opportunity to study and surround myself over the years with many amazing and distinguished artists on a local and national level. I believe their support and tutelage has helped me find my voice in painting and is mirrored in my art. I know for sure it is etched forever in my heart.
