Ray Smith was born in Brownsville, TX in 1959. Smith emerged in the 1980s, and continues to produce exuberant paintings and sculptures characterized by an inimitable style and subject matter that reflect his bicultural American and Mexican heritage. Contorted and morphed figures recur throughout his work, in a hybrid that draws from his early studies of fresco painting with traditional practitioners in Mexico, and an indebtedness to Picasso, the Surrealists, and the politically daring Mexican muralists. Through these varied beings, Smith reflects upon the complexities and absurdities of society, family, politics, culture, war, and the human condition itself, framed by birth and death.
Ray Smith has recently exhibited in galleries and museums like Nina Johnson (Miami), Lyle O. Reitzel (New York City), Stux Gallery (New York City), McClain Gallery (Houston, and Ruiz-Healy Art (San Antonio). His work is held in collections like the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY, the San Antonio Museum of Art, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta among many more.

He has been awarded several national and international recognitions, such as the “Centenario” award of the MACO artfair (2012), the grant from the National System of Art Creators, Fonca (2010-2013), the grant for the support of publications from the Bancomer BBVA foundation ( 2012), the grant from the New York Pollock-Krasner Foundation (2007) and the Laguna Arte Prize in Venice, Italy (2010). He recently published the book Path of Knowledge which he presented at the Tamayo Museum in Mexico City, Washington DC, Copenhagen, New York and London.
In recent years, his research has focused on the historical memory of the landscape and its transformation over time. Pintado selects landscapes from the past to intervene with contemporary objects. This confrontation of dissonant elements alludes to the notion of modernity where all the epochs of History coincide at the same moment.

Benjamin (Ben) Sack is an American artist, known for his pen and ink drawings of imaginary, complex cityscapes. He went to Virginia Commonwealth University and earned his BFA in 2011Benjamin Sack lives and works in Leesburg, Virginia, a town just outside of Washington D.C. He graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2011 with a degree in Fine Art.
Sack’s work explores architecture as a flexible medium capable of expressing the unique space between realism and abstraction; where interpretation and our ability to create meaning is in flux. Within this space, Sack, furnished with pen and ink, encapsulates both the infinite and infinitesimal. His work invites the eye to explore drawings of the “big picture,” to gaze into a kaleidoscope of histories and to look further into the elemental world of lines and dots.
