Amanda Rothschild recieved her BFA in Painting with minors in Art History and Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis. She now lives in New York City as she continues to produce amazing pieces while working at The Met (Metropolitan Museum of New York).
Her paintings, primarily done in oil, focus on emphasizing and beautifying otherwise mundane places and objects through the physicality of a painted surface. She works with overlooked objects, often those found in an average home, including microwaves and countertops, especially focusing on sinks and drains. These paintings use areas of abstraction combined with areas of precise detail that give these objects a life and narrative separate from their original utilitarian usage. During her years at Washington University in St. Louis she has been featured in a number of student shows including Knuckle Knuckle: a Junior Painting show, and Community Visuals: A Student Exhibition in Two Dimensions. She has served as both treasurer and president of the Art School Council and was an active member of the Undergraduate Council, while also serving on the Undergraduate Experience Committee. She was nominated for the Eileen Battell Stoeckel fellowship in the spring of 2013 and received the Eda L. and Clarence C. Cushing Memorial Prize in Painting in 2013. Prior to her managing role at The Met, Amanda worked as a Studio Assistant in the studio of St. Louis based artist John Sarra and worked as a Museum Teaching Intern at the Saint Louis Art Museum.

"Hidden behind the moody eyeliner, and her penchant for wearing all black, is an intelligent, curious, and wonderfully spontaneous spirit pulsating to a rhythm all its own" (Medium), and according to Medium, "the Queen of Good Vibes", Brooke Pelczynski, is an Adobe Creative Jam winner, talented & colorful, illustrator, designer, and Multiple Sclerosis fighter based in Brooklyn, NY.

Chapin Mathews , a multi-media artist, designer, musician and photographer, captures the diversity of today’s world with authentic merit. Destined to be a visual artist, one night at the ripe age of 4 his father handed him a 1970 35mm Nikkormat that he used to take his first photograph of music icon Aimee Mann. In his mid to late teens he spent several years studying the traditional techniques of photography and darkroom procedures while simultaneously learning the newly developing age of digital design and production.
In 2009, Chapin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, going on to travel 50,000 miles as a performing visual artist and documentarian before the age of 30. Through these travels he gained significant cultural and spiritual experiences, which aided in developing both his ability to compassionately relate to humanity and his current creative voice.
Chapin’s work is a credible reflection of unique lifestyles that tend to receive distorted views. Through his work Chapin challenges stigmas and taboo perspectives on these lifestyles, representing a common thread of humanity we are all connected to.
