Michael Boroniec 

Michael Boroniec is a sculptor and designer. Best known for his unique Spatial Spiral ceramics, these forms began with a single spiral and have evolved into a series of vessels that vary in form, degree of expansion, and number of coils. Each piece is wheel thrown then deconstructed. This process reveals aspects of the vessel that most rarely encounter. Within the walls, maker’s marks become evident and contribute to the texture. The resultant ribbon effect, reminiscent of a wheel trimming, lends fragility, elegance, and motion to a medium generally perceived as hard and heavy. This emphasizes a resistance of gravity, allowing negative space to unravel and become part of the form. The result is a body of sculptural objects resembling and born of functional vessels.

Dana De Ano 

Dana De Ano is a Chicago-based artist who creates mixed-media drawings on paper, often referred to as twoand-a-half dimensional. She works with collected reclaimed materials, marrying them with more traditional graphite and paint. Additionally, mark-making is created through burning and sewing, to form a textured landscape. De Ano’s work depicts the natural tension of life: light and dark, stress and rest, chaos and quiet.

Diane Schroeder 

Diane Schroeder majored in art with a focus in interior design at the University of Nebraska. After graduating with a BFA, Diane chose a career in the design field, but she never abandoned her love for her art. Her pieces abstractly suggest landscape shapes and textures and the translucencies and reflections of atmospheric colors. With the exploration of contrast and contradiction, Diane introduced collage as an exciting additional dimension to her work and she continues to define and refine detail and strength. Her subject matter, while abstractly suggesting landscape shapes and textures and the translucencies and reflections of atmospheric colors, presents the sensation of emotion, the power of intuition and the confidence of logic. Diane is represented in Grand Rapids, Michigan, by Lafontsee Gallery and works with art consultants and interior designers for art placement and commissions. Diane shows in juried competitions each year including, local, national, and international venues and her work can also be found in the collections of major corporations and private residences.
