* SCH Fine Arts (11am – 3pm)
Shani Hernandez is an artist from nearby Brookland. Her paintings are abstract representations of deeply personal personal feelings and experiences. Throughout her body of work she re-purposes used wood as a medium instead of canvas. An admitted geek, she also often incorporates used electronic components within her work, often to convey how human nature is often ‘hardwired.’
* Kosmoceratops – Art Squared (11am – 4pm)
Says artist Erika Kissinger: “Kosmoceratops is the name of a newly discovered dinosaur whose claim to fame is quite the decorative head plate. I picked that name for my business not only because my camera (circa 1950) is nicknamed ‘dinocam’ but because the artist rendition of this prehistoric beasty is a total work of art. And it amazed me that inspiration could come from what started as a dusty pile of bones. That’s why I love photography my subjects using TTV – Through the Viewfinder. To get the uniquely square and vintage looking photo, I use my dinocam and a digital SLR to make a new image. All my pieces are mounted on reclaimed wood collected from many sources, including Community Forklift.
