Genre-spanning violinist Melissa Hullman has been invited to share the stage at such diverse venues as the Kennedy Center, Canadian Music Week, the World Bank, Bethlehem Musikfest, Maryland Artscape, and Brooklyn’s Jalopy Theatre. Equally at home playing notes on the page or off the cuff, her musical collaborations range from solo, chamber, and orchestral playing to tango, jazz, folk, free improv, and Balkan, African, and Indian music. Her 2023 solo project VIO/LUMINA plays on the edge of possibility by using improvised and composed solo works to illuminate the current state of violin playing as an art form, infusing the depth and breadth of music now with the brilliance of the classical tradition. Her past collaborations include Susan Alcorn, KS Resmi, Cesar Orozco, and Full Circle Dance Company. She has performed with Inscape Chamber Orchestra, the Ann Arbor Symphony, the York Symphony Orchestra, and the Victoria Piano Trio.
Kim Rice creates artworks that focus on the construct of race through the lens of whiteness. She uses common materials and craft-based media as a meditation on systemic racism and the policies that affect American society today. Crocheted, sewn, and linked together, Rice’s labor-intensive art practice reveals the ways in which whiteness is woven into our everyday lives. Rice earned her BFA in Sculpture and MFA in Printmaking from the University of Oklahoma. Her work has been exhibited at public and private institutions throughout the country including: the Alexandria Museum of Art, the Fred Jones Museum of Art, the Northern Illinois Art Museum, the Delaware Museum of Art, the Peale Museum, and Prospect 4 Satellite. She has received multiple awards, including a Maryland State Arts Council Creativity Grant, and the McNeese Grant for Socially Engaged Practice.
