Photographer Danielle Wilborn began her creative journey as a little girl when she was given a broken camera to play with by her grandparents. An avid picture-taker, Wilborn's love of photography grew as her knowledge expanded; and with her first film SLR camera she began to appreciate how much care should go into each image.

The Showplace Gallery will feature work from the Drawing from the Model Class that is held every Wednesday night (Spring, Summer and Fall) at the BAC.

Christina Vagenius is a self-taught paper-cut artist who uses books and journals to create three dimensional shadowbox illustration. She is the author/illustrator of the award winning children's book, The Gift, a story of the power of forgiveness and the beautiful path we follow to bring our lost hearts home. Constructed completely from paper, The Gift, has gone on to win several national book awards, including a silver medal from The MoonBeam Children's Book Awards, The Independent Book Awards and a Gold medal from Mom's Choice Awards.
