Tracey Tarling studied painting and sculpture at the Emily Carr College of Art and Design. For the last several years, Tarling has been working on a series of paintings and monotypes that reflect her interest in transformation, passages and regrowth. Using oil and plaster on wood, in an age-old technique, her surfaces suggest ethereal landscape of trees, leaves and rock... life cycles and watery curves. Fragile botanical fragments float and decay in the process of rejuvenation. Black marks heavily weighted in charcoal and graphite are sanded and scratched, with reference to process, struggle, and hope.

Tom Burrows received a B.A. in Art History from the University of British Columbia in 1967, and continued post-graduate studies at St. Martin's School of Art, London, England until 1969. Burrows has had solo exhibitions in London, Rome, Tokyo, Berlin, New York, Edinburgh and across Canada. In 1999 Burrows' work was included in survey exhibitions of Canadian art at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Glenbow Gallery in Calgary, and the Windsor Art Gallery in Ontario. He has been awarded grants by the Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council, Japan Canada Fund, and the BC Arts Council. Burrows' most prominent medium is cast pigmented polymer resin with which he creates subtle, luminescent abstractions. Brilliant colour fields, sometimes transparent, sometimes opaque, give the illusion of a panel lit from within. Tom Burrows' work is held in private, corporate, and public collections in Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Pat O'Hara graduated from Emily Carr College of Art and Design with the Merit Award for painting in 1981. Her process of art making over the past 20 years has included painting on canvas or paper, cutting, layering, collage and weaving canvas. The pieces almost always have an oriental influence and have included long narrow screens, vertical spirit houses, huge vases, leaves, prayer rug collages, carpet related images and tarps with grommets. Experiences of travel, emotion and environment determine the colour and image of her work. Layering of bright light, dark colours and forms create rich texture. Pat O'Hara states "The process of art making is a game of challenge, chance and obsession."

Petterson attempts to capture the essence of a split-second in time. His current photography-based work explores various themes of lighting to create elements of mystery. Rembrandt and the Dutch mastersí use of light have strongly influenced Petterson; important elements are highlighted and the mind must fill in the rest. Fabric and movement are also subjects of fascination for the artist. He believes that the integration of movement and fabric are similar to brushstrokes. The chance and artistic freedom involved in motions of dance and similar movements are also reflected in his mixed media work. Recently, Pettersonís focus has been on painting, photo- based works, steel sculpture, and photography. Music has always been a very important facet of the artistís life, whether it be playing, composing, or simply appreciating music. He has explored performance art, film and kinetic work involving his own music compositions, set design and choreography. Petterson has exhibited in both private and public galleries in Canada and the United States. He is the recipient of The National Film Board of Canada Award, and has work featured in numerous private and public collections including Canada Council Art Bank, Canadian Airlines, Vancouver General Hospital, Claridge Investments, Duracell Canada, Esso Resources Canada, Pan-Pacific, Seattle, WA, Polygon Group Ltd., Richmond Public Art, St. Paulís Hospital, Vancouver, BC, Wall Centre Garden Hotel.
