In Denny McCoy's acrylic paintings, varying color striations, some in subtle hue gradations and others in bold contrast, cut vertically through the canvases. Although the mesmerizing quality of the paintings seems related to op art, as the bars vibrate against each  other and the colors shift in space, ultimately these works are very different in their exploration of the nature of vision and the connection between our eyes and our minds; McCoy's poetic paintings impart a sense of harmony and draw the viewer into a meditative state. McCoy received his MFA from Washington University and has exhibited throughout the United States. He lives and works in Austin.

Troy Woods is a third generation wood carver from rural Vermont whose smooth wood and metal sculptures defy the materiality of their medium. The lustrous maple wood he uses seems to melt and flow in space and to transform into other substances entirely, producing an appearance of elasticity. Through sheer craftsmanship Woods creates in each piece an elegant sense of calm, echoing nature while confounding our expectations of nature. Woods earned his B. F. A from the University of Houston, summa cum laude, and has received many awards for his work. He lives and works in Houston.
