Ariene Zimmerman
Arienne Zimmerman’s installations explore contrasting relationships of materials and found objects. The acts of searching and collecting are parts of the process she employs in creating her playful assemblage style work. Zimmerman has participated in various regional and national group exhibitions, and her work has been exhibited in the Indiana University Downtown Gallery in Kokomo, IN; EMU Ford and University Galleries in Ypsilanti, MI; Michigan Senate in Lansing, MI; Ann Arbor Art Center Gallery in Ann Arbor, MI; and the Museum of New Art in Armada, MI.

Zimmerman studied art education at the University of Toledo, and graduated with her bachelors in 2009. She is currently working on her MFA at Eastern Michigan University, with an expected graduation date of April 2020. Zimmerman lives in Ypsilanti, Michigan and has taught as an art instructor in a number of different educational settings over the past 10 years.

Pauline Bynum
Pauline Bynum received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, and is finishing up her Master of Studio Art degree, both with a concentration in ceramics, at Eastern Michigan University. Her work has been shown at EMU, in the IGG Studio Concepts juried show, chosen for the Symposium Design Expo, and in the BFA capstone exhibition AMALGAM. Her work was part of the 2018 and 2019 Annual Graduate Student Art Exhibitions, and she had pieces displayed, and performed ceramic demonstrations, in the 2018 Studio Walk. Her art was part of the Riverside Gallery’s She/They/Us Exhibit. Pauline has taught polymer clay workshops at Kriya Yoga, and has sold pieces at the Maltese American Community Club Annual Craft Show. Pauline’s sculptural works are inspired by research she’s done on social issues she feels need a voice, while her pottery pieces aim to combine whimsical aesthetics with streamline function.
