Paul Plumadore’s solo exhibition, PaperWorks, will consist of hand cut paper montages, shadowboxes, archival giclee prints, and books; a total of 90 works in all. Plumadore has been creating collage and related artworks since the late 1970s.
He has been a professional dancer (The Paul Taylor Dance Company) and an illustrator (The New York Times, RCA Records).

In 2021, his artwork was presented for the fourth time at Art of the State held at The Pennsylvania State Museum in Harrisburg.
Julie Stark, a native of Kutztown Pennsylvania, moved to New York City in 1983 for her last BFA semester to intern with the Artist-Photographer Cindy Sherman.
As an apprentice for Sherman, Stark worked in the photo industry learning and honing skills in set and location lighting, darkroom film processing, and worked as a fine printer. Stark went on to receive a BFA degree from Kutztown University with a concentration in photography and film.
