Thomas Campbell is a self-taught painter, sculptor, photographer, and filmmaker. He splits his time between his studio in Bonny Doon, California and traversing the globe making films. Campbell’s artworks combine scribbles and scriptures, taking slogans and anecdotes from his unique vocabulary and juxtaposing them with a profound look at human nature.

Ray Barbee is an American skateboarder, photographer, and musician from San Jose, California. Barbee was one of the first skateboarders to bring freestyle/flatland tricks to street, technical ollie combinations and numerous no comply variations. He is best known for his no complys and fluid style. A music writer and multi-instrumentalist, Barbee released his debut EP on Galaxia Records in 2003, Triumphant Procession, a collection of jazz-influenced instrumental tracks which Barbee produced and engineered in his home studio.

Adam Michael Terry has been working for 20 years in filmmaking, film scoring, photography, analog animation, design, and creative writing, music production, multi instrumentation, DJing, and live music performance. Terry has written and live performed 3 original compositions for exhibits at UMOCA.
