Annabeth Marks is an artist based in New York City. She received her MFA in painting from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College and her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. Mark's collaboration with Eckhaus Latta was recently on view at MoMa PS1 as a part of "Greater New York." Her work has been included in recent exhibitions, "Anthem of the Sun" at Canada Gallery in NY, "Old Truths and New Lies" at Rachel Uffner Gallery in NY, and in "Enlarged Fern" at Moskowitz Bayse in LA. Her solo exhibition "Folding Down the Middle" at Culture Room, Brooklyn, NY was included in ArtForum's Best of 2013. Her work is currently on view at Halsey McKay Gallery in Easthampton, NY as a part of the exhibition "Her Wherever." Recent curatorial projects include a show of Doris Staffel's work that Mark's organized at White Columns in NY.
Bridget Mullen, born in Minnesota, holds an MFA from Massachusetts College of Art and a BAE from Drake University. She makes paintings, drawings, and sculptures about the fallacy of repetition, feeling as the source of power/truth, and women. She composes these works by creating incongruous, overlapping layers that reject pictorial space to undermine narrative readings of her work. She has attended residencies at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2016), The Roswell Artist-In-Residence Program (2015-2016), The Fine Arts Work Center (2010-2011 and 2014-2015), Yaddo (2014), and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (2013). Mullen has had solo shows at Satellite Contemporary, Las Vegas, Nevada, The Roswell Museum and Art Center, Roswell, New Mexico, The University of North Georgia, Gainesville, Georgia, and The Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, Massachusetts. Her work was recently featured in the New American Paintings 2016 southwest issue.
Maud Streep holds an MFA from the University of Montana and has received work-study scholarships from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference. She lives in Brooklyn and has worked as a video editor, director’s assistant, and ghostwriter.
Clayton Schiff was born in 1987 and received a BFA in painting in 2009 from the Rhode Island School of Design. He is based in Brooklyn, NY, and makes paintings and comics.
