Niki Boghossian is a Toronto based artist whose work explores the individual’s connection to spirituality and the infinite through nature and the everyday. Employing methods of mystical divination and ritual practice in her work, Boghossian examines the spiritual and sometimes magical processes by which one attempts to find meaning through a critical yet playful lens. Boghossian received a BFA from Concordia University in 2007 and has shown throughout Ontario, Quebec and more recently at The Museum of Longing and Failure in Bergen, Norway. She recently participated in The Universe and Other Systems, a residency with Shary Boyle at the Banff Centre in Banff, AB.
Hannah Buonaguro is a poet and artist who lives by the sea. and lives by some certain rules some of the time. she writes in sand, in mud, in sanity, in side and in stead of doing other things. she is sometimes too loud and boisterous but her words are quiet on pages or wherever they find themselves.
Shanekia McIntosh is a writer, poet and educator born and raised in Brooklyn, New York to Jamaican parents. McIntosh has performed her writing in a variety of venues including the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art, September Gallery, Basilica Hudson and Spotty Dog Books. McIntosh is currently based in Hudson, NY where she works at the Hudson Area Library as the Youth Services and Programs Assistant.
