Artist Bio’s:

Jason McLean’s diverse practice includes sculpture, sound-works, zines, book-works, mixed-media installations, correspondence art, performance and sound projects; but he is probably best known for his diaristic mapping and surreal drawings. His mom’s Elvis scrapbook and dad’s homemade car ads are what introduced McLean to art. Now Spalding Gray, Grandma Stratychuk, and Krakus Inka are among the inspirations fueling his daily observations and relationships with local environments. Jason McLean currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and is represented by Michael Gibson Gallery in London, Canada and Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles, USA. He also has available works with Gittler& (Harlem, NY)

Don Krauskopf was born in London and lived between London, Bayfield and St. Thomas most of his life. He travelled extensively throughout Western Canada and the United States working for engineering companies. He is a ductwork and piping designer and for the last 15 years he has worked in the electrical and urban forestry disciplines. Don’s passion is art and he is also an artisan of wood-turning, enjoying membership in the Thames Valley Wood Turners Guild. He has been a devoted participant in the New School of Colour since its start in 2011.
