Bruce Anderson is an award winning interior designer and has completed numerous projects throughout the United States. After graduating from North Dakota State University at Fargo, ND, his hometown, Anderson attended the Rudolph Shaeffer School of Design for graduate studies. While at the Shaeffer School in San Francisco he studied Asian art history with noted collector Avery Brundage. This experience was formative in the development of his personal aesthetic. Asian influence is prominent in both his design work as well as his wall sculptures.

Anderson has maintained his interest in assembled sculptures throughout his busy career as a designer. This latest body of work pays homage to two of his favorite artists, Louise Nevelson and Piet Mondrian. Anderson's constructions employ everyday objects in unexpected ways forming compositions that explore rhythm, texture, and balance.

Robert Myers, A Winston-Salem native, received an undergraduate degree from Cornell and his Master's in architecture from Harvard, studying under Walter Gropius. He won the Rome Prize, which afforded him the opportunity to travel and study in both Italy and Greece. After his studies, he returned to Winston-Salem where he completed several important residential commissions. After moving to New York City where he had an illustrious career developing conceptual designs and renderings for major corporate and institutional projects. He resides in Litchfield County, Connecticut, where he pursues his life long interest in painting. Myers' work reflects his relationship with nature and is imbued with references to classical Greek culture.

Myers uses elements of traditional landscape and classic sculpture juxtaposed to create images that are both enigmatic and metaphorical.
