Zemer Peled - Zemer was born and raised in northern Israel. After completing a BA (Hons) at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem she graduated with an MA (Hons) from the Royal College of Art. In recent years her work has been featured nationally and internationally in museums and galleries including Sotheby’s and Saatchi Gallery, London, Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv, and the Orangerie du Senate, Paris, among others.
Peled’s work examines the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Her sculptural language is formed by her surrounding landscapes and nature, engaging with themes of nature and memories, identity and place. Her works are formed of thousand of ceramic shards constructed into large-scale/small-scale sculptures and installations.
Susana Amundaraín – Susana is a Venezuelan-born American artist. She holds an MFA, with emphasis in painting and performance art from the University of Denver in Colorado. She has also been a Visiting Scholar in Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She currently is adjunct faculty in Art at Minot State University where she directs the Northwest Art Center. Amundaraín has developed set designs for plays staged in Venezuela, and worked as the scenic designer in residence for choreographer and director André Koslowsky, with TanzTheater in Pennsylvania. Her artwork is represented in museums in South America and the United States, as well as in many private and corporate collections such as PepsiCo, Alcoa, and Minitab. This summer she will spend two weeks at the Museum’s artist-in-residence house.
