Olesya Konovalova says, "For us, opening up was scheduled for June 15, 2021, in LA county and turned into a 15-hour-power-outage in 111°F. Tried to cool off by spraying water from spray bottles, filled a wading pool for the kids. Spent the evening outside looking for glimpses of sunset and repair crews."

Olesya is a Russian-born American artist residing in Southern California. She completed her Specialization in Photography at MSU via Coursera in 2017. Olesya studied Linguistics and Translation at Chelyabinsk State Pedagogical University and Fashion Design at the College of Light and Textile Industry. Her works were part of Juried Exhibitions in MoAH Cedar in Lancaster, CA, and are in the current one. A group show was in Las Laguna Art Gallery in December of 2020. Olesya received multiple awards at MoAH Cedar.

PERSEPHONE by Kathryn Dunlevie

 Kathryn Dunlevie says of her series, 'Femmes Fatales, "Opening Up for me has meant opening up in my studio practice and in my thoughts about how we might move more freely through our lives. I have been working on a new series of feminine characters who meet the world head on. 

These Femmes Fatales are viewed as if with x-ray vision, their patchwork interiors hinting at what they have lived; their silhouettes offering clues as to how they have proceeded through time.

They are pieced together with fragments from our shared visual history, then situated in anonymous venues from my photographic archive. Suggesting limitless possibilities and
enigmatic narratives, they inspire unapologetic authenticity and a daring sense of adventure."

Kathryn Dunlevie is a photography-based artist whose work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and internationally. Cathy Kimball, former Executive Director of the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, writes of Dunlevie’s work:
"Through brilliant compositional detail and manipulation, she creates disconcerting, surprising, inexplicable spaces and scenarios – swimming pools that have many points of entry, streetscapes that elude mapmakers, and interior settings that are almost, but not quite, right."
Born on the east coast, Dunlevie lived in six different states by the time she was 12, and in Paraguay when she was 16. She has a B.A. in fine arts from Rice University, and studied art history and film at the University of Paris, painting at California College of the Arts, and photography in Madrid. She lives in Palo Alto.

Dunlevie has received numerous awards and fellowships, including two Arts Council Silicon Valley Artist Laureate Fellowships and an International Photography Awards honorable mention. Her work has been exhibited at FotoFest International since 2002, at the Pingyao International Photography Festival in China, at Studio Thomas Kellner in Germany, in the US Art in Embassies Program in Moscow and in Saatchi Arts’ Best of 2014.

Her work has been reviewed in Spain’s La Fotografia Actual, Korea’s photo + and Germany’s Profifoto, as well as in The New York Times, Camerawork: A Journal of Photographic Arts, Photo Metro, Artweek, and Artlies.
