Tate Leone

"I am a painter of biographical interior spaces in which the decorations, objects, and furnitire depicted are referential to and representational of my memories, emotions, desires, and dreams. My paintings are symbolic of spaces in my mind, constructed by my experiences, which only exist in my blood."

Tate is currently painting out of Pittsburgh, PA. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with a BFA in Studio Art in May 2016. She studied abroad at Chelsea College of Art, University of the Arts London in London, UK, during Spring of 2015. Tate has worked with the Mattress Factory Museum and the Carnegie Museum of Art both in Pittsburgh, and the Strohl Gallery, Fowler-Kellogg Gallery, and Melvin Johnson Sculpture Garden at the Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution in New York.

Carole Stremple

"As different as we all are, we are even more alike. Especially now, living in a very uncertain world, we need to feel the common humanity in us. We have to remember that we are all in this together. In truth, we need to see ourselves in all other human beings. When someone looks at my sculpture I want them to be able to say, 'I know how she feels.' I use subtle facial expressions and body attitudes because they reveal truth, if you take the time to look. I hope my sculptures are a mirror in which you see yourself."

In 1983, Carole received an MPA from the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh. In 1995, Carole changed her career to pursue art instead. Carole returned to The University of Pittsburgh in 1989 to study Studio Arts and, in 1995, began to study ceramic sculpture at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Carole is a member of the Associated Artists of Pittsburgh, New York Association of Women Artists and now The Rockport Art Association.
