Robert Rich Marbury
Here's the first of the "cool" artists I met in the audition line, Robert Rich Marbury. He was sewing a scout sash of some kind with entertaining pictograph badges while we waited. He hails originally from Baltimore and was in a John Waters’ film. Not surprisingly he is an explorer of contemporary culture.
I realize that I saw one of his pieces through Chashama. Marbury is also co-founder of the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists, which is an international organization dedicated to the shared mandate to advocate the showmanship of oddities. He also runs the Urban Beast Project, the taxonomy of fake and feral city dwelling mammals. Made my day!
Susan Shaw is an internationally exhibited painter and photographer. Private and public collections include the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Shaw is the recipient of two New York State Artist’s Fellowships and 2007/2009 residency fellowships at the Vermont Studio Center.
Kurt Hoss is a freelance photographer capturing the exuberance of
New York City for 35 years. A favorite project has been documenting life in south western Louisiana, culminating in two recent books, Going to Lafayette and Bosco Swamp.
Shaw and Hoss recently received an AVA gold award for video production, as producers of The Mermaid Parade.
