2020 Art Extravaganza Judges

Morgan Dyer is a painter originally from New Hampshire who now resides in Beverly, MA. After receiving her BFA from Montserrat College of Art in 2013, Dyer fell in love with the North Shore and its rich art community. Her current paintings explore the material by layering ribbons of color and texture together that form narratives of emotional landscapes. In her larger work, she expands these ideas by pouring heavy paint that soak, sink in and bleed onto the surface; creating both spontaneity and intentional control. Dyer explores these ideas in small works, large paintings and wall murals. www.morgandyer.com @morganrdyer

Christina is a Minnesota-based, multidisciplinary artist and high school drawing, painting, and digital art teacher. She loves working in the field of education, because it allows her to share her passion for art with so many inspirational people while continuing to learn and refine her artistic process. While Christina works across several media, her emphasis lies in painting. Over the last several years, she has paired her digital media and traditional art skills to develop a method that transfers graphic visuals within the mid-ground of her paintings. Christina gathers visual inspiration from her local surroundings and daily observations. Her most recent work explores the connections between place and memory through the use of topographical and celestial maps with related landscape and imagery. Christina has received local and national recognition for her work, including a 2019 painting residency with The Golden Foundationwww.christinakeithstudios.com @christina_keith_studios
