Jeanelle Myers submitted mixed media work from her "Collage Collection," a series of work made during a time of extreme grief, according to the artist statement. Myers used fabric and other "female" items and words to impart this time of pain.

"I make my work intuitively and come to an understanding about its point of view after it has set in the studio for a while...sometimes a long while," wrote the artist about the series.

Jeannelle Myers is based in The Hamptons.

Elizabeth Casqueiro (b. England, based in Washington, D.C.) grew up in Portugal and formed her first impressions of America through American comic books with their charismatic super heroes portrayed in high energy entertaining narratives of triumph of good over evil, she wrote in her contest statement.

"My current series of work is a tribute to this early window into an American in motion, brimming with confidence and determination. I attempt to recapture the essence of the images, namely their optimism, vibrancy and dynamism. I base my abstract paintings on comics of the 1950s and 1960s, removing reference to figuration and narrative. In the process, I reinvent and reimagine the image through energetic line, color and shape, and marvel at the surprising narratives that emerge."
