Elijah Ober, USA

Elijah Ober was born in Portsmouth, New Hampshire and grew up in Southern Maine. He comes from a family of artists – his dad, Stuart Ober and his aunt, Wendy Turner are painters. His uncle, Peter Turner, builds fine furniture. He studied Art and Anthropology at Bowdoin College, and spent his summers building stone staircases on hiking trails in the White Mountains. Elijah’s work combines found materials with his own fabrications to create objects with basic functional aspirations and fugitive presence. His work looks for animistic personality in mundane objects, naively pursues craft, and investigates the role of imagination in placemaking.


Taylor Apostol, USA

Born in Washington, D.C., Taylor Apostol spent her formative years living in Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, and the suburbs of Philadelphia. Apostol earned her BA in Studio Art at the University of Vermont and MFA in Sculpture at Boston University. She studied marble carving in Florence and Carrara, Italy, and has attended residencies at The Studios at MASS MoCA and Vermont Studio Center. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center, Hotel Commonwealth in Boston, MA and Sias International University in Xinzheng, China. She currently lives and works in the Boston area.
