Victoria BulgakovaBAЗA: COPPER & BRASS VESSELS
Victoria Bulgakova
Victoria (Vika) Bulgakova grew up in Ukraine, a part of the former Soviet Union. She immigrated to the U.S. in 1994, and for the next 22 years, New York became her home. In 2016, she moved to Michigan to pursue an MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art. She found the raw beauty of Detroit inspiring and kept her metalsmithing studio practice in the city. The copper and brass vessels in her Ваза series and other included works are a meditation on fluidity of memories: their ability to shift from reflection to re-invention over time. Each vessel potentially holds something within its boundaries, whether tangible or not.

Jeanne BieriOIL ON WATER: PAINTING ON LINEN
Danielle Eubank

Danielle Eubank is an award-winning artist who gave a keynote address to the Michigan Water Environment Association in June 2019. She has been on four international sailing expeditions and painted every ocean on the planet to raise awareness about the oceans (and lakes) and climate change. Her large oil on linen paintings are emotive abstract portraits of specific bodies of water, and this exhibition features the Arctic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. She creates patterns within patterns, representing vertical stacks of rhythms. The undulating forms, such as water ripples, oil slicks, and refuse, combined with the memories that water evokes, makes her work eye-opening, yet soothing and sensual.

Laura CavanaghPEN & INK QUEENS
Laura Cavanagh

Introverted and shy by nature, Laura Cavanagh uses her art as an outlet to create humorous larger than life personalities. In Pen & Ink Queens, Cavanagh draws inspiration from medieval and renaissance-era garments to adorn quirky, queenly figures. Cavanagh works in a style that is hyper-detailed and intricate, so she remains present during the creative process. A true Michigander, Cavanagh was born and raised in Southeast Michigan, attended U-M, and currently works in Detroit. Cavanagh makes a concerted effort to exhibit as much as possible in her home state, and when she is not in her studio, you can find her cooking, practicing yoga or playing with her cat, Benji.

Steve WirtzFOOTBALL & PETS: PAPER SCULPTURE
Steve Wirtz

This exhibit of Steve Wirtz' sculptures features a selection of his Dynamic Football series and animal works. The Dynamic Football laminated paper works explore compositions of action, allowing the artist to exploit the properties of the medium. The pieces are constructed by gluing many layers of paper over wire armatures. When dry, the sculptures are painted in an often splashy, sketchy style. Wirtz’ silly animal works are what the artist is best known for, and they take shape in his Goetzville, Michigan studio.
