Gwen DiCroce earned an MFA in Printmaking from VCU and was a public school art teacher in Virginia for 31 years before moving to Savannah in 2003. Her hand colored and painted etchings feature whimsical figures, animals and plants in magical places. W. Gerome Temple is originally from New Stanton, PA and came to Savannah by way of Jacksonville, FL to study graphic design at SCAD. He has been working as an illustrator for more than ten years.
His intricate drawings are almost architectural in their exquisite detail. Gerome showcases bio-mechanical interaction, early ideas of flight, circus troupes and imaginary entomologies and botanicals in his inventive drawings.
