A video installation by Tim McLoraine

“Layering video within video, All that we see or seem explores the ways in which our personal histories amass to create the interpretive frameworks for how we live in the world, and the density of narrative that we each bring to both the profound and mundane.”

Tim McLoraine creates video art and experimental film that appears in settings as varied as gallery installations, public art, concert, opera and theater.

"All that we see or seem" - A video installation by Tim McLoraine

by writer and photographer Timothy Gerken

“I accumulate images and then edit; creating a narrative from ideas I see in the photographs.  On the wall, the narrative develops as fiction as the photographs build off each other and through the cultural lens of the viewer, who transfers meaning into the relatively straightforward photographs.”  —  T. Gerken

Timothy Gerken is a writer and photographer who lives in the Leatherstocking region of Central New York.  He teaches writing and runs the gallery space at SUNY Morrisville.  Recent work include curating “Changing Landscape” at the Earlville Opera House and creating “Floating” a video installation on the Hamilton Green.

Timothy has been a MacDowell Colony Fellow and Edward Albee Foundation Fellow.  His education includes a PhD from Fordham University, an MFA from Brooklyn College, an MS from Southern CT State College, and a BS from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.

"Contradictions and that Line about Self-Destruction" by writer and photographer Timothy Gerken

Chidinma Dureke, Melissa Ezelle, Melissa Glasser, Tom Hill, Wayson Jones, Imani Russell, Gilbert Trent, Denise Wamaling, and Mark Wamaling

Mixed media paintings by Kyujin Lee

“In the spirit of Surrealist automatism, I begin by creating spontaneous marks on paper or canvas; I often just brush over, splatter, and/or spill water-based pigments on it.  Deliberations follow such accidents as I wait to observe and refine images, with which I compose visual narratives. ...”  —  Kyujin Lee

Born in Seoul, South Korea, in 1972, Kyujin Lee received her MFA from the City College of the City University of New York in 1997 and her MA from the Teacher College, Columbia University in 2000.  Since Fall 2001, she has been living, working, and teaching art in Washington, DC.

Stephen Honicki

“Whether it be a classic Hitchcock mystery or a contemporary daytime soap opera, the dramatic interplay between characters in a make-believe world has strongly influenced my work as an artist.  As a photographer, my intent is for viewers to see my images as a series of dramatic vignettes unfolding before their eyes.  Through these photographs, the viewer is able to get a glimpse into various ‘scenes’ of my life – sometimes semi-autobiographical – sometimes ‘dislocated’ stories from those in my life at the time.  I see myself as a ‘visual storyteller’ dealing with the underlying themes of love, relationships, loss, and hope.”  —  Stephen Honicki
