Margaret Strickland, Charlotte based photographer, has been making portraits of family, friends, and strangers for over a decade. Born and raised in Valdosta, Georgia, Margaret was influenced by cultural norms of the Deep South — a foundation that would later surface as an undercurrent in her work. Margaret’s work explores concepts of gender identity and performance, expectations of the self and of society, and the confluence of these ideas in the constructed poses of intimate portraits. Her works have been shown nationally at galleries and institutions, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C., and The Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte.

Works by Brian "Bojo" Bojanowski



From the psychedelic rock posters of the 1960s to the collectible posters of today, gig posters have always imbued the viewer with a sense of who the band is, what the music/tour/album is about, and allowed event goers to anticipate the vibe of the night. The original grassroots advertising campaign for rock bands has become a tangible connection between artists and their audience. Limited edition posters have become coveted pieces of memorabilia that are created and distributed by bands and venues, and sold at performances.


Brian “Bojo” Bojanowski is an artist/teacher whose favorite thing to create is gig posters for bands. Throughout his career, he has created work for many touring bands including Blues Traveler, Helmet, Umphrey’s McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band, The Gorilla Biscuits, Spafford, Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, and Breaking Benjamin.


Mr. Bojanowski’s work has been seen in ArtFields 2105, 2016, & 2017, and Carolina’s Got Art. He was awarded with Phan Artist of the Year for his yearlong project PhiftyTwoWeeks. Brian has also screen-printed art prints that were featured at New York City's Bottleneck Gallery, one of which was designed in collaboration with the children's music charity, The Mockingbird Foundation.


Bojo is the co-founder of a nationally franchised business, "Noah's Art" where children 2-10 years of age can take art classes. He currently teaches elementary art at Richmond Drive Elementary in Rock Hill, SC. As an art educator Brian has written and published over 20 curriculum books. In 2013, Brian illustrated three books, one of which The Asperkids’ (Secret) Book of Social Rules was awarded Book of the Year and is an Amazon #1 best seller. |
