* Alissa Taylor - The world I find myself living in is so full of distraction--things to do, calls to return, places to be. I take photographs first and foremost for myself. It's an activity that provides respite from the daily fire drills and forces me to slow down. My goal in sharing my photographs is to spread this peaceful awareness, to battle the growing existence of survival, routine, and to-do lists. I want people to enjoy the path as much as the destination--if not more--and to notice the beauty around them. I focus on the details, the unnoticed patterns, the tiny frayed corners that give our world authenticity. These glimpses bring me just as much joy as the big picture gifts in life, and they certainly exist in abundance for our consumption if our eyes are open.
* DC Stop Modern Slavery - We seek to leverage the power of the community to help build a better world, one without modern slavery and human trafficking, which involve the complete control of one person by another for the purpose of economic exploitation. Millions of people around the world and even in the DC area are forced to work under threat of violence. They are paid nothing and cannot leave.
* Kate Tallent - Kate Tallent's mixed media work addresses the environment and her place in it- be in urban or rural. Relationships with animals, buildings, art, vegetation are explored as well as others relationship to art. The intersection of viewers with art and various reactions to it are explored in her work. Kate has a degree in Fine Art from Towson University circa 1992 with a concentration in printmaking. While trained as a print maker, photography and collage are her medium of choice in 2012.
* Liz Hammond - I am a mixed media artist who works with tissue paper, print clippings, duct tape, shells, beads and flowers (or whatever is available) to embody the idea that pieces with messages that appear to be unrelated can create ONE cohesive message.
* Sylvia Johnson - The Alagados Project’s mission is to increase access to voice and education for extraordinary young people from the impoverished community of Alagados, Brazil by promoting equality and access to education as a basic human right. Based on the belief that education is the best way to help people help themselves, The Alagados Project Scholarship Program is designed to help exceptional young people from extremely challenging circumstances get the education that they need to be able to design their own exit strategies from poverty and become leaders that can affect significant social change in their communities.
* Will Berry - A Baltimore resident for his entire 43 years, Will injects creativity in aspects of his entire life. A carpenter for over twenty years, Will enjoys the design/build process and creates unique living spaces that adhere to his personal sensibilities of light and space. As a member of multiple bands over the past 25 years, Will has had the opportunity to contribute to the visual aspect of projects with his photography and poster design. Lately, Will has been working on a group of pieces that he likes to think of as "Digital Paintings" Taking his own photography and manipulating it in post production to achieve an abstract type of aesthetic.
