Michelle Courier began painting land, sky and tree-scapes, but has since been exploring painting water and the Western United States. Courier loves the challenge these scapes provide.“The movement between water, earth, and sky fascinates me. I want to make the viewer feel as if they could step into the water, actually almost be able to smell the trees.” Courier now has relocated from her home state of Michigan to Denver, Colorado full time, where she enjoys hiking and searching for more to create. To learn more about Courier's work, click HERE

Born and raised in Michigan, Kelly McCormick received his BFA from the University of Michigan and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has been living in New York City since 1999 and currently resides in Brooklyn. McCormick states, "In this series, the paintings suggest a dialogue between distortion of scale and man versus nature. My process begins with exploring the world around me. I seek out interesting compositions through photography that will carry over into my paintings. Water, glass or metal are identifiable images on their own, however, I seek the unique elements within. This process makes something ordinary seem extraordinary. For example, an aerial photo may look like graffiti, or crushed metal may look like an abstraction. By casting a different light we might see that the things we manufacture are like nature itself." To learn more about McCormick's work, click HERE.

The exhibit will be available for viewing December 7 - Early February during regular JCC hours.
