Johnny Laderer's "Fast Fade" includes four pieces and one striking large-scale digital rendering of a roadside locale with a gigantic pineapple. The rendering is a bit out of focus and evokes the loneliness only a true road warrior would know.

More About

Kristen Thiele's "Smoke and Mirrors" features a series of oil paintings that examine old Hollywood flicks. Each piece illustrates the mystery and also the disillusionment surrounding Hollywood glamour during the 1920s and '30s. For instance, one painting depicts a man in a fedora smoking a cigarette, yet a thick cloud of smoke blankets his face, obscuring his identity. A sense of unattainable pleasure permeates each piece. A woman in a long light-blue dress, with her back to the viewer and her head down, presses her hands on a mantle. Is she devastated? Perhaps.
