Richard Hambleton (b. Vancouver, Canada 1954) was one of the most prominent and influential figures of the downtown New York art scene. After receiving his Bachelors of Fine Arts in painting and art history from the Emily Carr School of Art in 1974, Hambleton launched his “Mass Murder” series. The series was painted on the streets of over fifteen cities across Canada and the United States. Hambleton would outline friends in chalk drawings, splashing them with red paint to mimic the remnants of a crime scene. 

In 1979 Hambleton moved permanently to the Lower East Side of New York. It was here that Hambleton gained notoriety for his "Shadowman" paintings of the early 1980s. Over the course of the next decade, his ominous silhouettes painted in unsuspecting corners, alleys, and side streets had appeared in over six hundred locations in major cities including New York City, London, Paris, as well as both sides of the Berlin Wall.

A departure from the spontaneity of the traditional street tag, Hambleton’s paintings were site-specific conceptual works intended to provoke unsuspecting pedestrians with a sobering moment of contemplation. His first solo exhibition opened in the Lower East Side of New York in 1982, and just two years later, his work was included in the Venice Biennale.  He was included in the Venice Biennale again in 1988. In 2009 from September 15, the works of Hambleton were displayed in an exhibition pertaining to 40-year career entitled, "Richard Hambleton - New York." The exhibition toured to multiple venues that included the Moscow Museum of Modern Art.

"Shadowman", a film about Hambleton by director Oren Jacoby, premiered at theTribeca Film Festival on April 21 2017.Hambleton continued to live and work in New York until his death in 2017.

Carole Feuerman is one of the earliest hyperrealist sculptors in American who pioneered the movement in the 1970s, along with Duane Hanson and John de Andrea. She is most known for her swimmers and bathers, whose underlying messages are about balance, perseverance, and survival. Executed in painted resin with tactile flesh and meticulous detail, they display both contemporary and Classical influences. Feuerman has also developed a highly original technique of sculpting with molten metal, creating multi-layered bronzes influenced by action painting.

Feuerman has taught and lectured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum, Columbia University, and Grounds for Sculpture. In 2011, she founded the Carole A. Feuerman Sculpture Foundation. She has had solo museum retrospectives at the El Paso Museum and the Huan Tai Hu Museum of Jiangsu province. In 2017, her sculpture Survival of Serena was chosen by New York City Department of Parks & Recreation for exhibition in Soho New York and in Central Park for their celebration of 50 Years of Public Art in NYC Parks. It was also shown in 2007 in her solo exhibition in Venice called By the Sea, curated by John T. Spike, during the Venice Biennale .Feuerman’s sculpture, The Golden Mean, is at the Riverfront Green Park and owned by the City of Peekskill, NY. Her monumental Double Diver, spiraling 36 feet in the air, is owned by the City of Sunnyvale, California.

Today, her works are in the collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the El Paso Museum of Art, the Bass Museum of Art in Miami, the State Hermitage in Russia, among others.
