Aubrey Hobart received her MA in Art History at the University of Colorado Boulder in 2010.
Hobart is an art historian who works as the Curator of Collections and Exhibitions at the Roswell Museum and Art Center in Roswell, New Mexico. With more than twenty years of experience in all aspects of museum work, she believes in the power of museums to support and transform their communities. Her primary areas of expertise are in Mesoamerican and Colonial Latin American art, as well as trends in museum exhibitions, but two years of working in Roswell have provided a crash course in 20th century New Mexican art and history, as well. Dr. Hobart graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz with a PhD in Visual Studies. She also holds a Master’s degree in Art History from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from New College of Florida.

Lainey Peltier was born in 1997 in Englewood, Colorado. In 2020, she will receive her BA in Art History and BFA in Art Practices with an emphasis in Printmaking from the University of Colorado Boulder. Peltier has already been included in various exhibitions and publications including the 37th Annual All Colorado Art Show at the Curtis Arts Center in Greenwood Village, CO and Issue 29 of The Hand Magazine from Prairie Village, KS. She is currently exploring human relationships with land through constructing meditative moments in landscape.
Statement: "I am deeply invested in and concerned by human relationships with land. Through my printmaking practice, I hope to create meditative moments in landscape that can foster an intimate, tender connection with land and help audiences rethink how we more broadly inhabit our environment. In my work, I aim to mobilize this personal connection to landscape in order to foster deeper relationships to land and advocate for a move away from an extraction-based, exploitive framework to one based on radical care and reciprocity."

All exhibited artists participated in the Red Lodge Clay Center Artist-Invites-Artist Residency program in Montana and the common denominator is their love of clay. Their experience with clay ranged from decades to just a few years. Five of them are from the length of Colorado’s front range, two are from the Aspen Valley and one flew in from California. All had concluded that the collective experience of this group of artists together with the community and facilities of the Red Lodge Clay Center would undoubtedly spur innovation and excellence.
