Eric Evinczick current series is a complex multiverse of beings, some prehistoric and some supernatural, that interact with each other in landscapes that make references to historical landscape paintings like the Hudson River School Movement. Nostalgia and loss
permeate the work, along with a sense of impending conflict and destruction.

Mary Wyrick recent work is based on old photographs that reflect personal and social interactions involving groups that are familiar today. She portrays relationships between competitors, workers, management, and audience. While painting, she scrutinize old photos for signs of obsolescence of cultural norms, gender roles, identity, and biases in events where local people created their own entertainment.
