Our third artist spotlights is ! "I’ve been making art since I could hold a crayon properly and not try to shove it up my nose. But, what truly propelled me to push it further was being an only child growing up in unsettling situations so my outlet out of it was to create. Which as an adult having those years of hell did propel me to be a better human, the best me I could be and will become. Today, my artwork typically revolves around heavier themes like mental illness, loss and disfactory body images. I like to push the boundaries on surrealistic imagery to try to showcase the emotions in those settings."
Check her out this Saturday at COATA! Doors open at 7 PM!

Our second artist spotlights is , a filmmaker who is currently attending MCAD in Minneapolis. "My art is inspired by relationships and the American Midwest. I find that a lot of my stories have a distinctly Midwestern viewpoint and develop problems, relationships, or find themselves in situations caused by acting in Midwestern ways. I want to dive deep into norms and personalities and see how our home towns influence who we become." Swipe right for a preview of his film Call-In which will be airing this weekend!

Our first artist spotlight is ! Nat makes ceramic sculptures and often uses beauty products and plant based dyes as a final touch.
