Angela Redmon - Artist

Angie Redmond Artist is a figurative and portrait artist from Chicago, IL. She received her Masters of the Science degree in Digital Art from Knowledge Systems Institute in Skokie, IL and a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Studio Art (emphasizing in oil painting) from Albion College in Albion MI.  Her pieces contain both oil paintings and drawings.


Maqueal Jordan - Saxophonist, Singer, Songwriter
Though Jordan will always be most connected in spirit to his adopted longtime hometown of Chicago, he was actually born in Los Angeles and spent his teen years in Kansas City. His first instrument was drums and he began playing the clarinet in grade school while also taking private piano lessons; he picked up the tenor sax for the first time at 12. Citing his early influences as everything from Motown and Ray Charles to Doo Wop and Miles Davis, he started making money playing gigs while earning his degree in Business Administration from the University of Kansas, where he also played in the jazz ensemble. His Track "Chillin with MJ" from his Catalyst CD, is featured on this page.

'Kwaw' Oscar Lester, also known as 'Triple Blak', is a visual artist, poet, and art educator based in Chicago, Illinois. His work depicts all aspects of African and African American cultural expression and centers around figurative representations of people of color. Bold vibrant hues, larger than life portrayals, and enigmatic facial expressions are hallmarks of this interesting and engaging work; whose content speaks to African existence throughout the Diaspora, including but not limited to depictions of continental Africans as well as African American celebrities, political figures, and everyday people. Mr. Lester’s work is both dynamic and provocative. His colorful oil on canvas renderings convey an attention to detail and level of empathy for the subject matter that is nothing short of remarkable.
