About the students:
Kelly Paige was born in Sacramento, California. She has a bachelor’s degree in math from San Jose State University. Paige’s art is seen as a way to contend with issues associated with Multiple Sclerosis, with which she was diagnosed in 2008. She hopes to procure a masters of fine arts in painting. One of her paintings took first place in the TMCC student art show in spring of 2010.

Sue Roberts was born in Berkeley, California. Teaching children-at-risk, she needed an additional activity to give her release from the demands of her job. She took a class in black and white photography and found herself hooked. After taking a class in printmaking to improve composition skills, Roberts has continued as a student in both photography and printmaking.

Chinta McCollum was born on the Island of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). She is a professional pianist and is working towards an associate degree in Fine Arts. She has won numerous awards in the TMCC student art shows. McCollum is focused on watercolor painting. Nature captivates her to watch movement, and stillness, all at the same moment.

Ken Bleak is a fifth generation Nevada. He studied black and white and color photography at Fullerton College in California. Bleak is currently working in the Reno area as a commercial photographer and is currently attending TMCC to explore methods of introducing a more artistic approach to digital photography.

Ike Lubiniecki has a degree in Lithography from Sacramento City College. His contribution to the exhibit attempts to distinguish itself from creation and formation. Elements using spatial form attempt to bring together shape, texture and color in layered fashioned contrast, forming a collage of lines, angles and curves.
