Kyri Hinkleman is a contemporary art jeweler currently living and working in Rochester, NY. Her undergraduate studies began at Anne Arundel Community College where she focused in art and entrepreneurship. Continuing to pursue her interests in creating, she received her BFA in Metalsmithing and Interdisciplinary Object Design from Towson University in Baltimore, MD. As her passion for jewelry continued to grow, she moved to upstate NY to receive her MFA in Metalsmithing and Jewelry Design from Rochester Institute of Technology and graduated in 2017. Kyri creates wearable objects and spaces, often sourcing found objects for her materials. By collecting discarded components, the inherent meaning of a found object changes, and then is challenged even further when it is placed on the body as a wearable piece. Topics such as memory, relationships, and the intrinsic value of materials are prevalent in her work.
Peter F. Miller (b.1991 Monterey, CA) is a contemporary artist working with photography living in Maryland. Peter’s primary focus lies in ways of seeing, identity, and communicating the human experience. They received an AA degree in studio arts from Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) in 2013 and a BFA in photography from The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 2016. Peter is the 2016 recipient of the Jan Meyer Photography Traveling Fellowship from MICA and one of the recipients of the Maryland State Arts Council’s Individual Artist Award in photography for 2018. Their work has been featured on the Detroit Center for Creative Photography’s website and Fotofilmic’s 2017 Spring Shortlist.
Tyler Mitchell is a multidisciplinary artist that grew up in Davidsonville, Maryland. His passion for the fine arts was realized at an early age. In his senior year he went on to win The Maryland Distinguished Scholar Award and Scholarship for the Fine Arts, one of only two awarded in the state each year. He attended Savannah College of Art and Design where he graduated in 2002 with a B.F.A in Painting. In the years spent there he would develop a love for the hands on process of sculpture, wood working and installation. He later picked up photography as a means to combine the many different facets of his artistic process and seal the finish piece in time through the lens of his camera. He strives to recreate his imaginative and dream states by drawing on his background in sculpture and painting to give rise to surreal narratives that invoke these feelings with an illustrative like quality. Images that seem to have a clear vision but don’t quite make sense, much like dreams. His work rapidly evolves from one body of work to the next while trying to maintain a polished look and style unique to his own vision. He has shown his work extensively both nationally and internationally and recently attended Anne Arundel Community College for Graphic Design where he took his first photography class under Professor Matthew Moore.
