Rob Kimmel 
The designer of Popcorn Noir's logo now offers an exhibit or varied works. Rob operates an independent, full-service creative studio, specializing in design, branding and illustration, in Northampton. 

Kate Marion LaPierre 
Mixed media abstract artist using paint and textural elements. "While my work can suggest landscapes, I create each piece spontaneously using a layering process. Each piece is unique and a journey with color, texture, and emotion. After years as an editorial illustrator, I returned to creating my own art. I enjoy the emotions abstract art can evoke, and am influenced by past and present artists." 

Nora Frankel 
"I strive to create an intriguing visual space from simplicity and repetition. The obsessive detail is as soothing as it is engaging, built up slowly into a form that is more than the sum of its parts. By eliminating shading, colors, and other variables, I am able to explore the infinite potential of one element, the simple circle. I am searching for alternate ways to describe space and form, evoking what is familiar while constructing an abstract pattern purely for visual pleasure." Contact Information: 

Marty Dittiger 
A regular, and good friend of Popcorn Noir, Marty recently revealed he is an artist as well. See a preview of his coming collection- two works near the coat rack, in "Marty's Corner" Tristan Chambers Photographer Tristan Chambers will light up the windows of Popcorn Noir's lobby. Chambers' black and white winter landscapes were captured as part of project collaboration with Duo Orfeo.
