Born in 1990 in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Sarah (Sam) Goldstein is an artist, designer and naturalist based in Oakland, CA. She holds a BFA in painting from C.C.A.C. and is pursuing a degree in Landscape Architecture at Merritt College. She has also studied abroad at Seika University in Kyoto, Japan. Blending traditional Japanese painting with Dutch-Renaissance mische-technique, Sarah creates subtly layered works influenced by the natural sciences, contemporary design and Zen aesthetics. As a gardener, landscaper and nursery professional, plants occupy Sarah's mind and seed themselves into her paintings.
Kelly Hackett is an Oakland based artist. She graduated from the California College of the Arts in 2011. Her paintings and sculptures are the result of investigations into the various types of goo, including but not limited to: algae, glycerine, bacteria, marine life, polymers, plaque, fat, plant material, soap, crusts of all kinds, cosmetics, geological formations, flesh, and wax.
Anastasia Holland is a self taught artist based in Berkeley, CA. Through her pieces, she explores the connection between the cosmic and natural worlds. Her work is inspired by her practice as a psychic consultant and having spent her childhood in the mountains of the Eastern Sierras. You can follow her on Instagram or check out her website
