Brad Goldpaint
“An evening spent capturing a starry night creates an unmistakable bond. This connection could be formed by the shear brilliance and magnitude of gazing into the endless universe or maybe the realization of how infinitesimal we feel in that moment. These connections have remained with me throughout my years of teaching. Each person, a unique experience, a distinct approach, and a single, apparent commonality: to reconnect with the beauty of the night.

It has been an honor to witness the evolution of these artists and the development of their works.”
