Cole Barash (Exhibition) learned photography by doing it. He started early with the craft: a hungry kid in the darkroom. Shot everything. He had quickly created a language for himself with the camera. Pure expression. Abstract vision. Documenting the motion and emotion of snowboarding, Cole learned technique. The mountain environment taught him patience and humility. The nonstop travel fueled his fire.Today, Cole is among action sports’ most sought after photographers and is now continuing his path outside of the split second world. On everything from magazine covers to global ad campaigns, his images speak in honest, universal tones. They invite and engage.In any environment, from the studio to the streets to the high alpine, Cole’s vision is guided by passion and precision. It reflects both his intensity and his creative vision.

Kerry O’ Grady (Visual Art Exhibition) was attracted to abstract thinking from an early age, she was very interested in math, astronomy, staring very far into space, contemplating deep ideas . . . she also drew from a very early age, and remembers “rearranging” toys and items around a brown-carpeted room to balance the colors better. Kerry now calls this her first installation art. Dance, gymnastics, and movement in general always interested her, and recess was basically a chance to learn Irish step dancing or ballet from friends, or to make up dances. Through high school, Kerry seriously pursued watercolor, figure drawing, math, physics, and dance. In college, when faced with the decision to pursue art or math, she chose art, because art is a way to study everything. Kerry continues to cross-train as a visual artist by pursuing dance, sound art, and assorted philosophies.
