About the Artist: Reina Wooden

Born in Harrisburg, PA in 1976, Reina E. Wooden, known as “Reina 76 Artist|R76” is an Abstract Expressionist and graduate of Howard University, Hospitality Management in Washington, DC. |R76| is an “Outsider” Artist who wants her art to heal those suffering from domestic violence and depression. The connection to childhood and its effects on the inner artist within is the Artist’s intention. “Conceptual Art leads me towards imagination. It empowers me to explore art with bold, drastic colors, thick layers, and jagged strokes on canvas, cardboard, and fabric. This is a modern approach towards historical and traumatic events and the individuals who influence it.” |R76| artwork has been exhibited in the Atrium of WITF Broadcasting and Media Company, the Art Association of Harrisburg, BLAQK House of Pittsburgh and in private collections in New York, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, France and the US Embassy of Moldova.

About the Artist: Tracy Vannoy

Tracy Vannoy, a Navy veteran turned Nuclear Chemistry Manager for four decades, found solace in the ancient craft of blacksmithing upon retirement. Volunteering in an 1880’s blacksmith shop sparked a passion for transforming discarded materials into unique works of art. Tracy scours scrapyards for rusty relics, breathing new life into them in the forge, shaping them with hand tools and a welder. Each creation, marked with a Celtic rune for “Joy,” bears testament to Tracy’s craftsmanship and the resilience of repurposed materials. Tracy hopes these pieces bring joy to others, mirroring the joy found in their creation.
