ABOUT THE ARTISTS Patrick Coughlin examines the ubiquitous, mundane, and inconspicuous aspects of American material culture and domestic spaces. He abstracts structural joinery, furniture, and traditional craft processes to create mixed-media sculptures that consider the hidden complexity and sensuality of everyday objects. Coughlin is currently a senior lecturer at The University of The Arts and an adjunct professor at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia. Coughlin received an MFA from the University of Florida and a BFA from Syracuse University.
Yuki Iriyama Gray creates furniture and functional sculptures that investigate the materiality and authenticity of objects, and often reference nature, human emotion, and the relationship between people and material. Gray received a BFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design.
