Siara Berry (Cudahy) is a sculptor working in a wide-array of mediums, ranging from wood to soil, concrete, and found objects. In 2015, Berry graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a degree in Sculpture and Creative Writing.

Jaymee Harvey Willms (Milwaukee) was born and raised in Maplewood, Minnesota. From there she moved to South Dakota where she received her BFA in painting and art history from the University of South Dakota. In 2015 she went on to graduate from SUNY Albany with her MFA in sculpture.

Before Heidi Parkes (Milwaukee) was born in Chicago in 1982, her grandmother organized a collaborative family quilt to commemorate her birth. Now based in Milwaukee, her quilting and mending celebrate the hand, and her works tug at memories and shared experience.

Sylvie Rosenthal (Madison) started building at age six at the Eli Whitney Museum where she made circuses, catapults, rockets, and robots. She received her BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology’s Woodworking and Furniture Design Program in the School for American Crafts, built two houses from the ground up with her mentor Doug Sigler, and received her MFA in sculpture from UW-Madison.

Glenn Williams (Madison) received his M.F.Adegree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a specialization in Sculpture. In his work he explores various social constructs and their impact on our perceived realities. He deconstructs, reconstructs, and sometimes simply reflects various accepted mores to expose how they shape our understanding of the world around us and influence our interactions on a social, political, and environmental level.
