Art in the exhibit features a colorful spectrum of artistic styles. Featured artists are Lisa Hendrickson, Christy Oehm, Sean Robbins and Kathleen Campbell.

Kathleen Campbell is an Associate Professor of Art at Appalachian State University in Boone. Her work in photography and mixed media has been exhibited widely at such places as Soho Photo in New York City, the Philidelphia Print Center and the Schneider Gallery in Chicago. Using Western spiritual iconography, her work attempts to critique the rationalist, techno-scientific view of reality. She has received a number of awards and in 1998 was awarded a Visual Artist's Fellowship from the North Carolina Arts Council.

Lisa Hendrickson is a painter and collagist. She uses a variety of media in her artwork. She is the director of "School and Youth Programs" at the William King Regional Arts Center in Abington, Virginia.

Christy Oehm is a Boone native. At Appalachian State University she earned a BFA degree in studio art with a concentration in painting and fibers. She now lives in Raleigh. People, animals, nostalgia, family, emotion, encyclopedia, literature, magic realism and other similar things influence Oehm's artwork.

Sean Robbins was born in Connecticut. He moved to North Carolina at an early age and grew up in Cary. He received a BFA in studio art from Appalachian State University. He now lives in Raleigh. His paintings are about lying in the grass, staring at the sky, getting lost in the clouds, and remembering.
