Art Professor Brad Chapman Bleau
Portfolio of Material Culture, Paintings, Wood Cutouts, Drawings, and Clothing
"I am a painter and sculptor who constructs knowledge by engaging in deep, meaningful dialogue with process and material," says Chapman Bleau in an artist statement. "My work is situated in visual and material culture, exploring themes of surrealism, memento mori, and tattoo iconography. I believe in building a relationship with my own joy through art making so that I may embody it, and facilitate it in others. Art making is about process, and what discoveries emerge from letting go of preconceptions. As an educator, my intentions are to introduce others to these processes, and allow knowledge to be built through experimentation."

"Carlos Odria is a breathtakingly talented musician, fusing elements of Latin American folk music, Spanish flamenco, jazz and Afro-Peruvian rhythms into a fascinating mélange... it's impossible to not be struck by the lush sound, the immense technical skill and sheer beauty he creates." - Worcester Telegram & Gazette

Art Professor Michael Hachey
Works on Paper, Paintings, Mural, and Installations
"For more than four decades my artwork has ranged across large-scale sculptural installations, on-site wall drawings, murals, paintings, drawings, and in the last three years, an additional counterpoint of writing," says Hachey in an artist statement. "The present ricocheting between my writing and visual art has informed and affected my art series of 'drawings' -- semi-legible to illegible handwriting - from dense to evaporating fields across expanses of paper."
