Trickhouse Live is an integrative arts series that brings together people working with words, images, sounds, videos, and a variety of performances. The series serves as a venue for visiting artists to interact with local artists and for the borders between genres and mediums to be permeable. Trickhouse Live is a physical world extension of the online cross-genre arts journal, Trickhouse.org which is based in Tucson.
Logan Michelle Byers is mostly water. Since 2006 she has been living and breathing in Tucson, Arizona, which is mostly desert: the evaporation rate here is roughly 100 inches per year. Logan recently completed her Master’s degree in landscape architecture at the University of Arizona. Since her graduation in December, Logan has been working as a water educator with the U of A’s Project WET, educating 3rd and 6th graders about the water cycle and ground water in Tucson and surrounding areas. In her free time you might find her exploring the drainage ways of Tucson’s urban watershed. Logan’s experience living in the Sonoran Desert is showcased through a body of work centered on energy flows, precipitation, evaporation, and plant and animal wisdom. Her long-term goals are to drink more water and to improve her handstand.
Josephine Edmondson was born in Lakeside, Arizona. She received her BFA from the University of Arizona in 2008 where she majored in Art Education with an emphasis in Community Museum Studies and a minor in Art History. Josephine has been teaching art since she was 16 years old in a variety of community and museum settings. In her teaching, she is passionate about allowing her students to express their own voice through artistic practice and to question the world around them—key elements that also inform her teaching and personal practice in yoga. Josephine has devoted herself to helping cultivate the next generation of accepting, creative, committed, compassionate boundless human beings through the power of both yoga and art.
Rebecca Hamlin is pursuing her MFA in Sculpture at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ. She received her BA in Studio Art from Bradley University in Peoria, IL. Shortly after, she moved to and began exhibiting in Chicago, IL and surrounding areas. She works mostly in ceramic and found object sculpture as well as printmaking and drawing, creating objects and using images that evoke a strong emotional connection to memory, self-preservation and observation of nature. She often incorporates animal imagery in her work, using the animal form as an analog to human emotion. She currently lives in Tucson with her fiancé, her Corgi-mix, and two cats.
