About our artist and poets:

Bari DeJaynes lives and works in New York City. He will be presenting, "Thought-Scraps," which he describes as, "an installation of raw elements that are intriguing to me at a 'moment in time.' They represent the linear –just below the surface–way I like to process ideas to make art."

Evan Commander is a visual artist, poet, and curator. He has worked as co-curator with the independent gallery, Publico, and as Curator of DAAP Galleries at the University of Cincinnati. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, where he edits and curates the independent press and reading series, Moor. He is the author of two chapbooks,
Planet Carpet (Forklift, Inc.) and A Thing and Its Ghost (H_NGM_N Press).

Paige Ackerson-Kiely is the author of In No One’s Land, judged by DA Powell as winner of the Sawtooth Poetry Prize. She has received awards and fellowships from Poets & Writers, Vermont Community Foundation, The Willowell Foundation and The Jentel Artist Residency Program, among others. Her second book of poems, The Misery Trail, is forthcoming from Ahsahta Press. Paige lives in rural Vermont, where she is working on A Book About a Candle Burning in Shed, a memoir in verse, and a novel, Place No Object Here. She works at a wine store, edits the poetry magazine A Handsome Journal, and manages her family band, The Blonde Sorrows. You can read her work here and here.

Claire Hero is the author of Sing, Mongrel (Noemi Press, 2009) and two chapbooks, Cabinet (dancing girl press) and afterpastures, winner of the 2007 Caketrain Chapbook Competition. Her poems have appeared in Denver Quarterly, A Public Space, La Petite Zine, Octopus, Saltgrass, and elsewhere. She lives in upstate New York.
