Jagoda Bednarsky (b. 1988, Zlotoryja, Poland) is a Berlin-based painter whose work expands the symbolic and personal into surreal narratives that oscillate between object and image. Addressing questions about the history and role of contemporary painting, Bednarsky's recent work explores themes of womanhood, identity, and motherhood. Bednarsky studied at the Kunsthochschule Kassel, Germany, and the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien, Vienna, Austria, before graduating from the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Städelschule in Frankfurt, Germany in 2014. Her work has been exhibited internationally in Europe and in the United States, including institutional exhibitions at Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Germany; Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany; Kunstsammlungen Chemnitz, Germany; Museum Wiesbaden, Germany; Kunstverein Oldenburg, Germany; Kunstverein Heppenheim, Germany; Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden, Germany; Museum für Moderne Kunst Zollamt, Frankfurt am Main, Germany; Kunsthalle Lingen, Ems, Germany; and Kunstverein zu Assenheim, Assenheim-Niddatal, Germany.

Autumn Wallace (b. 1996, Philadelphia, PA) is a visual artist whose paintings and sculptures examine human sexuality, gender, and the black femme experience. Influenced by 90's cartoons, Byzantine aesthetics, Baroque Style, and what Wallace describes as "low-quality adult materials", Wallace's work generates a sense of fluidity whereby figures defy spatial, social, physical, emotional, and psychological boundaries. Wallace's work has been featured in solo exhibitions at The Armory Show (Gaa Gallery), New York; the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA; Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Gaa Projects, Cologne, Germany; and in Philadelphia, PA at the Portside Art Parlor; HOUSE Gallery; and Stella Elkins Gallery. Wallace's work has also been included in group exhibitions at Blum and Poe, Los Angeles, CA; Clearing, Brooklyn, NY; Da Vinci Art Alliance, Philadelphia, PA; Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Lauren Powell Productions, Los Angeles, CA; Margot Samel, New York, NY; the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM), Provincetown, MA; Smithsonian Museum of the African Diaspora, Washington, DC; and Vacancy Gallery, Shanghai, China, among others. Wallace graduated from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2018 and since has been the recipient of numerous fellowships, including residencies at the LungA School, Iceland, the Fine Arts Work Center, Provincetown, MA; Mass MoCA, North Adams, MA; Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY; and the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT, among others. In 2021 Wallace's work was acquired by the Studio Museum in Harlem. Wallace's work will be the subject of an upcoming solo exhibition at Gaa Gallery, New York, in the fall of 2023.
Wendy White (b.1971, Deep River, CT) is a visual artist whose work encompasses painting, sculpture, and installation and often references symbols and iconography of contemporary advertising, branding, American pop culture, and twentieth-century art history. Through juxtaposing gestural mark-making and fabricated elements, White uses sculptural and spatial interventions to defy and expand the boxed-in limitations of the traditional canvas. White’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Gaa Gallery, Provincetown, MA; Kaikai Kiki, Tokyo; Leo Koenig Inc., New York; Shulamit Nazarian, Los Angeles; COUNTY, Palm Beach; Maruani Noirhomme, Brussels; VAN HORN, Düsseldorf; Denny Dimin Gallery, New York; David Castillo, Miami; Eric Firestone Gallery, New York; Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago; Galerie Jérôme Pauchant, Paris; Sherrick & Paul, Nashville; and Galeria Moriarty, Madrid.
