Showcasing the work of

Anna Druzcz:
Born 1979 in Poland, Anna Druzcz studied photography at Ryerson Polytechnic University in toronto and earned her masters degree in fine art photography from the Rochester institute of technology. There, using a combination of photographic and digital techniques she built her current visual methodology. Her most recent series features digitally composed photographic landscapes cobbled together from organic and synthetic sources.

Rachel Beach:
Was born in London, On Canada in 1975. She received her MFA from Yale University in 2001 and BFA from NSCAD University in Halifax, Canada in 1998. Beach's works have been described as " tough, precise and disciplined with a hard edged cheeriness" and "steeped in a pleasant pluralism, bound by a shared material intelligence". Beach lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Liz Brown:
{b.1977} earned her MFA from the Mount Royal Graduate Program at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004. Her subjects are intended to be amusingly romantic, assembled from the ideal world that is delivered by traditional media. Her goal is a work that exists as itself, rather than a revelation of the thoughts other process of the artist.

Jason Bryant:
{b.1976} grew up in rural North Carolina. Receiving his BFA at East Carolina University, he then earned his MFA from the Mount Royal School of Art. Bryant's unique approach to poplar culture shows in his lavishly detailed, pristinely finished drawings and canvasses, reinvesting their stars with a bit of privacy, a bit of agency.

Nora Herting:
Nora Herting received her BFA from the University of New Mexico in 1999 and her MFA from Ohio State University in 2005. Nora has showed her photographs, installations and performance works across the country and internationally. She was an artist in residence at the McColl Center for the Visual Arts and was a winner of the Vermont Studio Artist Scholarship both in 2007. This is Nora’s first show at Like the Spice.

Eric LoPresti:
{b.1971}, lives and works in New York. In 1993 he received a BA in Cognitive Science from the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, then in 2002, his MFA from the Mount Royal School of Art, Maryland Institute, Baltimore MD. His imagery is often made as allusions to hidden forces, the world that exists beside us, and beyond our control.

Dean Goelz:
Dean Goelz graduated from The Maryland Institute
College of Art in 2001 where he earned his Bachelor in
Fine Arts. He works as a freelance artist doing
anything from design work to commissioned sculptures
while operating a successful mural and faux finishing
business. His work has shown nationally as well as
internationally. He lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Chadwick Whitehead
Born in Greece in 1977, Chadwick Whitehead, grew up an American in Michigan. He attended collage in chicago and Tokyo, receiving his MFA in 2006 from the School of Visual Arts. Whitehead currently lives in Brooklyn, making image filled with distinct strokes, narrative and character driven marks. Through printmaking, he has found a gauge for reducing forms and color.

Allison Edge:
Allison Edge lives in Brooklyn, New York. Originally hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, she received her BFA in painting from the University of Georgia (1997) and her MFA in painting from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (2000). Primarily working in oil on canvas and watercolor on paper, her works captures the reoccuring themes of youth worship and idealized beauty, influenced by fashion advertising, boyfriends/friends, Pre-Raphaelites and growing up in the 80’s. Allison’s work has been exhibited at Caren Golden Fine Art (NYC), Jack the Pelican Presents (NYC), Lincart (SF) and Lump (Raliegh, NC), among others.

Ross Racine:
Born In Montreal (quebec), Canada, Ross Racine currently lives and works in New York. His digital prints are drawn completely freehand, on the computer. Joined together the pieces reveal familiar opposites of handmade and digital, organic and mechanical, subjective and technological, physical and virtual.

Brian LaRossa:
Was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He received in Master's degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2002. His digital drawings are a careful arrangement of many smaller instinctual compositions. LaRossa's work is influenced by the equivalence of energy and matter, biological differentiation and conversion, the nature of moderation, and the superficiality of time.

Abby Goodman:
Influenced by consumer culture, mass media, and contemporary society, Abby has created a world of fantasy, calling attention to the artifice which occurs when the lines between fact and fiction are blurred. From installations of painted-on newspaper clippings, to embroidered canvases, to welded steel, her technique is as ecclectic as her subject matter. Ms. Goodman's work has a dominant personality marked by humor and humanity ties each piece together, making them cohesive as a group, but individually strong.
