Through a diverse body of work spanning multiple mediums and themes, Mia Cross explores color, the human figure, and narrative. Her oil paintings, and in particular her portraiture, demonstrate a fixed fascination with pattern and skin. When painting, Cross pays special care to creating engaging color relationships, sometimes harmonious and sometimes dissonant. Cross stitches her colors together like a quilt, often laying them down with a palette knife and leaving them untouched for the remainder of the painting process. Her recent work explores where the figure begins and ends when immersed in its surroundings.

Deborah Peeples is an abstract artist who paints with encaustic and exhibits nationally. She holds a BFA from Washington University School of Fine Arts and also studied at the Lake Placid School of Art. She returned to a full-time art practice after raising her family and working for many years as a community, social, and political activist. Peeples is a member of The Crit Lab and serves on the board of the Cambridge Art Association. She lives in Cambridge and works at Joy Street Studios in Somerville, MA.  She says that "painting is [her] sensual response to the world, a time-release recording of the sounds, smells, and intensity of a moment. Abstraction is a language that traces [her] inner turbulence and exuberance."
