Noelle Miller

Noelle Miller is an abstract painter living and working in Fort Collins, Colorado. After graduating from CSU with a BFA in drawing, she focused on traveling and dove into her work with a newfound inspiration for the world around her. Noelle’s work stems from an interest in emotion and the manifestation of energy within everyday life. Recently, her works have been focusing on the idea of memory and feelings of nostalgia. Large swatches of color build a platform for the telling of these stories. Delicate lines, textures and clouds of color create a language of what is remembered in contrast with where moments of these memories lapse.

Chris Malchow

Growing up a skateboarder I was always fascinated by the bold and colorful graphics on skateboards. Some of my earliest memories are of going into the local skate shop and being blown away by all the different art styles. Now although I didn't realize it at the time, this would be the start to a lifelong obsession with art and design. I would draw on my shoes, my homework, napkins at restaurants, anything I could really. But it wasn't until High School that I realized this could turn into a career. I took one computer art and design class and the minute I was introduced to the adobe programs, I knew this was the right path for me. My creative world went from mainly just drawing to being able to carry out any idea I had in my mind. From that point on my artistic style just kept evolving. Now, just recently graduating from Madison Area Technical College with my associates degree in Graphic Design I feel like I'm really hitting my stride. I'm excited to keep evolving as a designer/ human being and to leave my mark on the design world!

Eric Thomas Wolever

Throughout his career as an artist, Wolever has always explored themes of landscape, upbringing, and personal landmarks. First in the form of installations, and now as complex, layered paintings. Utilizing a combination of acrylic and ink, Eric pulls a depth of memory and experience into a condensed form. He cites his midwestern upbringing as his main inspiration for his work, drawing from his summers spent skateboarding, the lattice of nylon porch chairs, and weathered basketball hoops. Eric invites us to observe these artifacts within his context, and within our own. The resulting narrative is one half-formulated by his work, and half-constructed of our own experience.
