HOPE GANGLOFF (b. 1974) is best known for her vibrant portrait and landscape paintings that combine a distinctive bright palette with intricate linework. Her early portraiture garnered attention for its intimate observation of relatable moments, from a road trip with friends to a late-night house party. Recent landscapes bring her characteristic luminosity to prolonged moments of scenic observation. In 2019, she received the MacDowell Fellowship. Gangloff’s solo exhibitions include the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University; Broad Art Museum, East Lansing; and Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C.; the Broad Art Museum; Grinnell College, Grinnell, IA; the Kemper Museum, Kansas City; and Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, among others.
WILLIAM VILLALONGO (b. 1975) represents the Black subject against the backdrop of race in America. The artist is known for his use of black velvet cut paper, in which excision and collage are utilized to underscore historical erasure and overturn canonical narratives. The results of his approach are dynamic portraits that reference cultural histories, emphasizing diaspora, deep time, freedom, beauty, and metamorphosis. Villalongo is a 2021 recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters Purchase Prize. His work is included in the permanent collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art; the Denver Art Museum; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C;
the Princeton University Art Museum; Bryn Mawr College Art and Artifacts Collection, Bryn Mawr, PA; the Studio Museum in Harlem, NYC; the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC; and the Yale University Art Gallery, among others.
RYAN WALLACE’s (b. 1977) mixed media paintings conjure an ethereal space between the material and intangible. Repurposing fragments from earlier and developing pieces, the artist seams, layers, excavates, and manipulates the surface of his work to incorporate a wealth of textures and techniques. By limiting his resources, Wallace has developed a rich process-based practice whereby each body of work leads to the next in terms of materials and composition. Wallace’s work has been exhibited at BAM, Brooklyn; Marjorie Barrick Museum, Las Vegas; and University of the Arts, Philadelphia. Recent group exhibitions include Volery Gallery, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (2022); Bohemian’s Gallery, Natsume Books, Tokyo, Japan (2022); De Boer Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2021); and The Bunker Artspace, West Palm Beach, FL (2019). His works can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, among others.
