Ed Carpenter

Artist

Ed Carpenter is an artist specializing in large-scale public installations ranging from architectural sculpture to infrastructure design.  Since 1973 he has completed scores of projects for public, corporate, and ecclesiastical clients.  Working internationally from his studio in Portland, Oregon, USA, Carpenter collaborates with a variety of expert consultants, sub-contractors, and studio assistants.  He personally oversees every step of each commission, and installs them himself with a crew of long-time helpers, except in the case of the largest objects, such as bridges.

Photo of jose Bruno b. Casiano

In Puerto Rico, he studied painting at the School of Plastic Arts in Old San Juan in the early 1980s. He pursued further studies in illustration at The School of Design, Altos de Chavon in La Romana, Dominican Republic and, in the mid-1990s, at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Ohio. For a few years he owned and curated the Bruno Casiano Gallery in the West side of Cleveland. The Gallery eventually became unviable, but Bruno Casiano continues know and be known by most artists in the area.

One distinct innovation in some of his work features the decoration of the frames he uses for his art. Not wanting to stop at the edge of the canvas, Casiano paints, wraps, stains and engraves the pine wood frames he uses with written text and poetry of his own authorship, carved with a nail or pyrograph, or wrapped with vintage magazine cutouts, creating a literally expressive frame for his artwork. Casiano receives regular commissions and his work is frequently on exhibit.

JOHN CHRISTENSEN – BIO
John Christensen is an artist working in Austin, Texas. Born in New York City, he received degrees in Visual and Environmental Studies – and art – from Harvard and the University of Texas. Before 1990, he developed a body of site-sensitive work in rural landscapes of New York, Georgia and Texas. Since 1990, he has focused that sensibility on projects for the theater and the public place. He has created, in collaborations with choreographers, interactive props and theatrical environments for 30 productions presented in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. He has designed and built commercial spaces, and, unique and production furniture. Working in a variety of media he has exhibited around the country. He has completed 20 large scale public and private commissions in Austin, Dallas, Houston, Albuquerque, Miami, Tucson, Portland and Fort Worth. Collaborating with other design professionals he developed infrastructure and interactive art for a municipal park. He brings to any project an unusually broad set of technical and conceptual skills. In recent sculptures and reliefs he has arranged motifs to evoke organic systems – branching rhizomes, biotic colonies, neural networks, wave interference patterns, polymers – clustered works with perceptual associations that make poetic connections between phenomena in disparate fields. He sustains a studio practice, going to his studio most days to make things.

Photo of Kim Covell Maurer

Kim is a Columbus based artist and educator working primarily in the medium of encaustic -a wax based process originating from ancient Greece. Her fascination with encaustics lies in its luminosity, translucence, unpredictability, and stubborn independence. It demands a high amount of physical labor and work that she deeply embraces.

Kim received her BA from the Ohio State University and her MA from the Art Academy in Cincinnati. She has shown locally and in Athens, Cincinnati, and Chicago.  She was awarded a Vermont Studio Center artist residency, the Ohio Art League’s Gateway to the Arts solo exhibition for the John Glenn International Airport  fine art gallery and an FCCFA commission for the permanent collection at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

When not in the studio or teaching, she prefers a walk in the woods and looking at the sky.
