Blue Library Vol 2: Conversations
Curated by Kalee Appleton
Tammy Mercure’s project, Blue Library Vol 2: Conversations, consists of collaborative, visual exchanges between coupled photographers in the form of photobooks.  Each book, a result of a photographer’s responses to the imagery of another photographer, is a compilation of visual narrative that creates connections between work and gives a new life to the original photographs.
Participating photographers:

Courtney Asztalos & Nydia Blas, Jessica Dean Camp & Cole Don Kelley, Angela Deane & Alisson Bittiker, Lee Deigaard & Elizabeth Stone, Hobbes Ginsberg & Andi Icaza, Michelle Groskopf & Alexander Coggin, Janna Ireland & Morgan Rachel Levy, Natalie Krick & Lissa Rivera, Ian Lewandowski & Caiti Borruso, Juan Madrid & Maggie Stockman, Ross Mantle & Chris Maggio, Noelle McCleaf & Michael McCraw, Zora Murff & Rana Young, Amy Lynn Powell & Maddie McGarvey, Tamara Reynolds & Matthew Genitempo, David Soffa & Liz Calvi, Sasha Tivetsky & Melissa Spitz, and Tara Wray & Carrie Elizabeth Thompson.

object/non-object
Kelsey Heimerman and Sammy Rat Rios
Curated by Seth Lorenz
 
Two women, lots of color and two ways of seeing the world.
Kelsey Heimerman is an objective painter that mainly paints “figures (that) are her metaphorical haystacks and they reflect our contemporary world. Using distortion, engorged layers of firm, deliberate and bleeding paint become objectified as they describe flesh, spaces, animals and a codex of modern iconography.As a seeker of knowledge and a person people are drawn to, Heimerman strives to become a part of the American female narrative. Influenced by Frida Kahlo, Keith Haring, Henry Darger, Hemonous Boch, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud and Rosson Crow she continues diligently Project people projecting visions of a dreamlike futuristic world where all people are accepted.”
Sammy Rat Rios is a multifaceted Dallas artist, she is a musician, actress, and painter to name a few. Although her main focus is her music, her paintings are wonderful non-objective examples of her personal aesthetic. Everything she does, whether it be painting, singing, acting, or walking down the street, she does with a grace and style quite unique to herself. She is drawn to color, design, and clean simple aesthetics and she expresses these magnetisms boldly in her paintings.
