Bio: I am a fine art photographer and writer specializing in urban ecologies and cultural landscapes. My practice examines how we perceive and construct understandings of nature in the contexts of culture and the built environment. My work is characterized by the paradoxical term Urban Wilderness, which symbolizes the complexity of my oeuvre as well as the tensions inherent in the concept.

Bio: Ashley Morgan created a studio practice to explore contemporary notions of culture and aesthetics through a combination of sculptural gestures and the design of everyday objects. Positioned between fine art and design, she creates objects that are minimal, utilitarian and almost mundane, yet full of meaning one might not expect.

Bio: I lead the dialogue at Art City, the Journal Sentinel's cultural page, which has a community of nearly 30 thinkers, arts and writers gathered around it and contributing to the dialogue. I've been a journalist for more than 20 years and cover art, architecture and design for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. I think of my job broadly, though, and am most interested in cultivating dialogue about culture and subjects relevant to our time and community. I am from California originally and lived on the East Coast for a decade before coming to Wisconsin, where, coincidentally, I have deep familial roots. My significant other is a rock star designer who is socially and politically engaged and in two bands.

Bio: Born in Memphis Tennessee, I am a Milwaukee painter and designer with a studio in Bay View. Themes in my art include performance, identity, perception and narrative. I'm currently working on a series of oil "portraits" of old circus costumes, in order to explore the idea of the personas we shed as we grow older. The costumes I'm featuring all have notable and identifiable owners—such as the highly detailed embroidered jacket once worn by the famed animal trainer Damoo Dhotre in the 1940s. Look for an exhibition of these works at the Portrait Society this July 2015.
