Christy Mitchell resides in Burlington, Vermont where she has built a small creative empire for herself in the South End Arts District. Taking old warehouse or factory spaces and building out gallery and working artist studios has blossomed to a total of three exhibition areas and thirty artist studios.
When she has a chance to make artwork, it is usually en masse in fits of spontaneous creativity or for her annual exhibit every November at The S.P.A.C.E. Gallery, called ‘Make Art, Repeat.‘
Attending the Savannah College of Art and Design, or SCAD, with a degree in Fine Arts, she studied Metals & Jewelry Design. That training, with an eye for detail and a lifetime of being interested in the arts, has gotten her to where she is today.

As a painter I enjoy working primarily with mixed media in the abstract mode. My art is vivid, featuring interesting color relationships, line, and texture. While I continue to be inspired by earth’s beauty and our relationship to our planet, most recently my inspiration comes from space and the cosmos through Hubble images and theories of astrophysics. My objective remains: To convey mood and evoke emotion by the use of color, learned through my past interior design experience.
My work also includes dye painting on silk both as silk hangings and wearable art.
Beth Robinson is a self-taught artist. While she has dabbled in a variety of mediums, it was the discovery of polymer clay that allowed her to combine her interests in design, sewing, sculpting, and painting and gave her a concrete foundation of expression in the form of “Strange Dolls.”
Since 2003 she has been creating macabre and grotesque characters in clay for collectors across the globe. She is currently represented in Berlin, Germany by Strychnin Gallery and has shown in other galleries internationally. Robinson’s dolls have been featured in a variety of publications including: “Gothic Beauty”, “Art Doll Quarterly”, and “SPIN” in the US, “Rue Morgue” in Canada, “RIP” in Russia, and “Nordic Vision” in Norway. She has also been interviewed in various and sundry television and radio appearances.
Robinson and her partner in crime, Kevin Montanaro, curate the annual “Art of Horror” exhibit that takes place in the S.P.A.C.E. and Backspace Galleries each Halloween season.
Colin works in a variety of materials ranging from to ink to acrylic to wood.
Whether it’s in graphite, ink, colored pencil, charcoal, watercolor or acrylic, it’s hard not to notice Erik’s illustrative style of creating art. Drawing at a young age, Erik was determined to become a comic book artist, but is now focusing on expanding his repertoire to appeal to other audiences in hopes of becoming an accomplished illustrator of all sorts.
In addition to Erik designing and creating personal and commissioned illustrations, Erik has just began to venture in the process of writing and designing his own children’s book series in hopes to have his own cartoon one day to live up to its full potential.

Jake Rifken is a wire sculptor and can create large pieces of work using the smallest of wire. He sets his mind on a shape and can create it almost out of thin air. His pieces are often large, but almost transparent, due to his spider web like technique.
Mark Eliot Schwabe, SteamSmith
“I am a sculptor & jewelry designer/maker. I love the SteamPunk style. Its reverence for things mechanical (like in the days of steam power), Victorian fashion, wit, and a healthy dose of science fiction is all GREAT fun!
Metals are my medium. I work with raw metal stock (not found objects), using traditional jewelry making & metal working techniques.
My SteamPunk work has received important recognitions: The SteamPunk Museum, the online museum “Exhibiting the inspirational people, events & artifacts of the Steampunk community”; “Robots, Rockets & Steampunk” 2012 exhibit at the Shelburne Museum and “Steampunkinetics” a major 2012 exhibit of Steampunk art with moving parts, AFA Gallery, New York.”
