Ken Judd describes himself as a blue collar artist and craftsman who makes art wherever he goes. He’s always been drawn to using found objects and inexpensive, odd materials. When Judd moved into a rental house in 2009, whose previous owner was a handyman/do-it-yourselfer from the Depression era, he discovered a treasure trove of nuts, bolts, washer, old brake fluid cans and tools - inspiring him to create his current series of Robot Pioneers. They are made of 95% salvaged materials: wood, glass, metal and resin.

Influenced by cartoons and Picasso, Jake Galm explores spiritual revelation in a storybook world. He describes his style as "Bubblegum Cubist Surrealism," and allows it to develop through each piece without a preconceived interpretation. "It's like a dream that you have, instead of presenting an idea that you hold." His radiant work will dazzle even your eyelids and his story; further intrigue you into a deeper level of insight beyond the canvas.
