Through often-intricate mixed-media works on paper, Carroll Swenson-Roberts creates interior landscapes, private spaces where one’s inner life has the capacity to flourish. Incorporating her own personal and curated symbols in smaller works, Swenson-Roberts positions these objects within the context of the natural world, signifying the relationship between her interior self and the outer world. Her recent debut solo exhibition at Ro2 Art, displayed a long term history of the artists reflections on the inner vs. the outer and the joy of ordinary life constructed into personal narratives with works developed over a 30-year span.



Jay Bailey’s paintings are figurative combinations of line drawings and watercolor stains. His figures balance between quick gesture, rendered realism, and abstract mark making with much of his work’s imagery coming from his personal experience.

Jay Bailey was born in Reno, Nevada in 1976. He has a BA in Fine Art from the University of Nevada in Reno, undertook post-baccalaureate studies at the San Francisco Art Institute and has his MFA from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He has shown his work in group and solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, and Australia.
