"My interactions with the world and my practice as an artist have both been shaped by my upbringing on my family’s farm. As cultivators we shape and carve out the landscape, changing it to meet our needs, while in turn meeting the needs of the land. We are caretakers of the living landscape, which if left to thrive unsupervised reclaims human-made forms. My artwork resonates with this lifework. My work is inspired by the growth and continuity of cultivated landscapes, and the people, tools, and systems that impact them." Amanda Bulger

Barry Treu - www.barrytrue.com

My artwork consists of abstract acrylic paintings that often begin with 'found' composisitions - happenstance arrangements of trash or discarded objects placed with no regard for color, shape or design. I strive to maintain an opennes to new possibilities in each painting, taking each on it's own terms." Barry Treu

"The natural beauty and rustic architecture along the Mississippi River in northwest Illinois provide the inspiration for my photographic compositions." Sam Tucibat
