Schroeder Cherry creates open-ended stories about African American history and culture. He uses acrylic paint and mixed media on wood, found objects and text to construct stories.
“The watermelon frequently appears as a positive image. The nutritious fruit originated in Africa, but has been used as a negative image in black memorabilia. I am appropriating a negative stereotype and claiming it as a positive image for the black diaspora. Images of cotton also appear in my works, referencing “high cotton”, a metaphor for living the good life. My current works are inspired by the phrase, “Without the gaze.” The phrase was mentioned by Toni Morrison, who talked about her writing stories with black people as the central characters. Viewers are invited to examine my artworks and develop their own narratives.”
 
Maxine Taylor is an abstract painter. “My favorite media is watercolor and whatever I choose to add to it. Lately I’ve begun creating collages out of unfinished watercolors or acrylics on archival paper. It is very freeing as I must reinvent how to decide when a piece is working, and then finished. I continue to be aware of my surroundings and to channel my life experiences into my artwork.”
