Teresa Scott began studying art at a young age under the training of master painter James Wright Sr. She furthered her studies at the University of Akron and obtained an A.A.B. degree in commercial art. As an artist using oil and watercolor, Teresa focuses on raising awareness for the various social and individual injustices in the world today. She uses aesthetically pleasing qualities such as vivid colors and suggestive patterns to make the art interesting. Exhibited in Wall to Wall is a Polar Opposites series that portrays blatant and subliminal suggestions of oppression, hatred, love, and tranquility, juxtaposed to create interesting and meaningful compositions.

Susie Lilley earned her B.F.A. in photography from the University of Akron’s Myers School of Art in 2012. While she was in college, she thought about how photography could be used in unconventional ways. Since her graduation, she has participated in numerous exhibitions in the Cleveland/Akron area. Susie also has a love for clay. While she prefers practical, functional pieces, she enjoys adding touches to works that expand her creativity. Susie combines her two media, photography and clay, by looking for ways to make photography more tangible. The pieces chosen for this exhibition reflect the challenges of photos being functional and lending themselves to the tactile realm.

Based in Akron and maintaining a studio at Summit Artspace, Abigail Cipar works in a variety of media, most recently moving into large-scale soft sculpture and textiles. They are a 2021 graduate of the Myers School of Art at the University of Akron, receiving their B.F.A. with a focus in painting and drawing. The body of work exhibited in this season’s Wall to Wall program is a reaction to personal experiences and discomforts in queer adolescence using organic forms derived from the fungi found in Ohio’s natural landscape. The pieces reference found family, interpretations of nature as a safe space, and the integral pursuit of knowledge surrounding queer histories.
