About the Artists

Virginia Jackson Carr graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Master of Fine Arts in Photography, and has since used her traditional photographic processes to explore  themes of family, memory, place and home. While she currently lives in Austin, work has been exhibited all over the country, including Atlanta Legal Aid Society, Atlanta Photography Group, The Center for Civil and Human Rights: Civil Rights Museum Atlanta, Garcia/Wilburn Gallery, Georgia State University, New Orleans Photo Alliance, The Photographer’s Eye Collective, The Praxis Gallery, SCAD Open Studio, Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, SE Center for Photography, South x Southeast PhotoGallery, Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia, Whitespace Gallery, and

Lauren Tarbel is an artist, mother, wife, daughter, photographer, painter, and dreamer. As the owner of Lauren Tarbel Photography, Tarbel works with a team to capture thoughtful, professional and timeless images for her clients. She is also the co-founder of Moon Gallery Studio in Austin where she specializes in painting and collage to create a range of fine art. Tarbel is fascinated by people, stories, nature, art, and the power of imagination, and believes that creation is rooted in wonder and motivated by a desire to celebrate life. 

Zulma Vega is a Colombian visual multidisciplinary artist who made Houston her home in 2012. Her work spans painting, sculpture, and ceramic and is influenced by psychological and spiritual matters. Her style incorporates figurative language through an abstract expression using materials such as wood, clay, and acrylic on different surfaces. Vega’s art is a series of creative and experimental processes that describe a personal awareness that is common to anyone. Therefore, her pieces, more than cathartic, invite us to ask ourselves about our ancestors, intimate inquiries, hidden feelings, thoughts, and the dynamism of the psyche.
