A recent Artist Fellowship Finalist from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Johanna was trained in the tradition of hand bookbinding at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA. She has been a visual artist since her early years and uses her craft school training and artistic skills to create mixed media sculpture. Her sculptures often take the shape of animals and often tell a story. She was an Artist-in-Residence at the Grand Canyon National Park in 2013 and worked on a collaborative project about that Park that involves interactive sculpture and photography.

Hi! My name is Pampi. I believe in and work towards the application of the arts for strategic intervention and political mobilization of people's movements. On that note, I design wearable art; develop experimental performance pieces through community workshop techniques; write poetry; and host potlucks. I am currently making a big leap: committing to securing a studio. While my forte is in pen and ink, I enjoy experimenting with video, poetry, movement and installation. In my work I tend to engage issues of identity, gender, sexuality and the body politic.

Who I Am
I'm a Somerville creative director and musician. Came of age in the decadent 80's, spent all of the 90's and a good chunk of the 00's playing my heart out in Boston rock bands, and now, quite frankly, I'm a little tired. Dad, husband, weekend woodshop warrior, compulsive writer and doodler.

Artistic underachiever extraordinaire, Stefan attributes his distaste for traditional art scenes to a close-minded grammar school teacher. He cannot, however, blame her for his absence from success in other life aspects. Kidding aside, he is a very happy husband & father who wishes for more time to pursue his art.

Natalie Andrew Ph. D. is a biologist, engineer, cognitive-scientist, and artist researching creativity, backyard biology, paradigm shifts, and the ingredients of inspiration. Her living-sculptures and jewel-paintings are an ongoing experiment to create an environment of wonder in which to contemplate, and an exploration of the value we place in scientific discovery and what consequences such reverence might have for making progress - either in deepening and elaborating a paradigm or shifting to a new one.
