About the Artists:


Chris May is a multidisciplinary artist whose work examines multiple facets of how humans exist in, and effect nature. Chris’ work also explores those dark consequences of rapid change. Our society develops and embraces new technologies at an ever-increasing pace. As we slide into more and more digital realms, are we paying attention to our physical environments, to our fellow travelers on this blue marble? But Chris’ art is not all doom and gloom. Chris is a keenly observant photographer who captures the beauty in the minutia of his surroundings, the overlooked details that most people do not see, even when they are not staring at their phones.

Maxine Hess is a mixed media artist originally from Boston, Massachusetts, currently living and working in Woodstock, Georgia. Hess has exhibited nationally and internationally including Shenyang, China, New York City, Los Angeles and other major cities in the U.S. Her work has been reviewed in Hyperallergic, W Magazine, ArtsATL and has been featured in a number of other publications as well. Hess’s work can be found in several private collections in the U.S.

Chase King is a native resident of Woodstock, Georgia. Chase, having traveled enough outside of his city limits to experience cultural shocks and pinches, still has a deep affection for the North Georgia Mountains. No words can describe the feeling of being in a giant field at 10pm filled with lighting bug flickers and tree canopies surrounding you. Chase will take moments like this and use them to help guide his painting process to create something to its equivalent or better, if he’s lucky. All directions lead to a painting.
