About the Artists

Tanner Hammock

Recently moving to Louisville, Tanner was creating art on his family farm in Milton, Kentucky established in 1965. Professionally, he has worked in higher education, construction, and agriculture. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Indianapolis and a Master’s degree from the University of Kentucky. In addition to art, Tanner enjoys gardening and making music. 

 

Primarily self-taught and currently without an art community, Tanner considers himself a “Naive Artist” or “Art Brut.” His art education comes from museums, books, and digital platforms. This education combined with years of experimentation and little outside influence has resulted in a unique aesthetic.

Jessica Olberz Singleton

Jessica Olberz is a multi-disciplinary artist born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She discovered her passion for art as a teenager. This was around the time that she became aware of having synesthesia, which causes her various senses to be accompanied by imagery and colors.

 

Jessica received a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Louisville before embarking on a career as a yoga teacher and studio owner for 18 years, including teaching yoga philosophy and asana practices at UofL for over a decade. She remained active with her art during this time, holding numerous art shows and teaching art in both individual and class settings.

Her current body of work features bold, abstract watercolor paintings, though she has previously worked with various mediums like soft pastels, collage, and acrylics on subjects ranging from plant shadows and mandalas to self-portraiture. Olberz cites influences from transcendent abstractionists, Mark Rothko and Hilma af Klint.Through dynamic use of color, scale and spontaneous techniques, Olberz's watercolor paintings invite viewers to experience the inherent interconnectedness underlying our human experience.
