A fan of Philip Guston, Cronin has been featured in shows across America, ranging from Chelsea to Asbury Park to Los Angeles to Miami. Born “in the front seat of a station wagon,” Cronin lives in New Paltz.

    David Gordon will presenting a bunny with a gun and other images a bit edgier than the ones featured in the children’s books he writes and illustrates. He lists his interests as “any and all machines, particularly trucks and construction equipment.” Educated at Parsons and New York Academy, previous shows include MoMA’s “Pixar: 20 Years of Animation.” Originally from Colorado, Gordon lives in NYC, which he loves for the energy, art community, and museums.

    Nathan Meltz presents a six-minute animation as well as prints on paper. Influences range from Dada artist John Heartfield, to stop-motion animation pioneer Ray Harryhausen. Meltz’s work has been featured in numerous video art festivals as well as on the WMHT series, “TV/Film.” His prints have been featured in publications including Paper Politics. Originally from Wisconsin, Meltz currently resides in Troy.
