Hotlava & Bier-Featuring the work of Treavor Rennick, Rachel Robbins & Dannielle Slaugher .

Treavor Rennick and Rachel Robbins spent the spring of 2010 studying at the New York Studio Residency Program in Brooklyn, New York.  During the semester, Treavor primarily made drawings on paper.  His drawings feature a series of hairy spacecrafts and ghoulish characters.  Rachel made audio installations that consist of candid and edited recordings.  She also produced sculptures using found electronic parts.  Her series of sculptures become a part of the installation.

Danielle Slaughter spent her spring semester studying in Antwerp, Belgium. The way in which she approaches her work often comes from humor and play with the tangible. Content is clarified by, and is a result of, collecting information and experimentation with material. Her body of work is made up of both abstract and recognizable imagery from the world around her. "My work is made up of unrestrained realities that attempt to make the incompatible compatible. Asking myself, for example, what physically needs to be altered or kept the same when putting a photograph into a painting or turning a painting into a sculpture?"
