ABOUT REBECCA YOUSSEF:
Rebecca Youssef is a Los Angeles-based mixed media artist who was raised on the north shore of O’ahu, Hawaii. Galvanized by the sustainability movement to protect our planet, her work gives new life to discarded paper, boxes and bags by immortalizing them in art, thus honoring their journey from tree to canvas. Rebecca employs a broad range of sustainable practices and natural materials inspired by her love of cultivating native trees.

Rebecca received her BFA from the University of Arizona in Tucson and then moved to Los Angeles to pursue her MA in Art Education at Loyola Marymount University. Following graduate school, Rebecca taught art at various schools across Los Angeles. Currently, she is an artist-in-residence at the 18th Street Arts Center airport campus in Santa Monica, California.

ABOUT GREGG CHADWICK:
Gregg Chadwick is a fine artist with a studio in an old airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. The recurring sound of airplane take-offs and landings from the airport runway reminds him of his own history of travel. Painting for three decades, he is inspired not only by travel, but the extensive readings across philosophy, psychology, politics, social science, mythology and poetry. His broad curiosity is reflected in the various collections with a distinguished intellectual touch.

Gregg has exhibited his artworks in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. He has had notable solo exhibitions at the Manifesta Maastricht Gallery in Netherlands, Space AD 2000 in Tokyo, the Julie Nester Gallery in Utah, the Lisa Coscino Gallery and Audis Husar Fine Arts in California, and the Sandra Lee Gallery in San Francisco among others. He has also participated in over one hundred group exhibitions including the L Ross Gallery in Tennessee), the Andrea Schwartz Gallery in San Francisco, and the Arts Club of Washington in Washington DC. Chadwick’s artwork has been featured at Saatchi Art’s The Other Art Fair in Los Angeles and Chicago, the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair, and the LA Art Show. Chadwick’s art is notably included in the collections of the Adobe Corporation, the Gilpin Museum, the Graciela Hotel Burbank, the Harbor Court Hotel – San Francisco, the Kimpton Group’s headquarters in San Francisco, the National Museum of the Marine Corps, Nordstrom Company Headquarters, the W Hotel Hollywood, the UCLA School of Nursing, and Winona State University. He earned his BFA at the University of California, Los Angeles and MFA at the New York University.
