Artist Biography

Alexis Wheeler

Alexis Wheeler

Alexis Wheeler is an intuitive abstract artist living in New York State. As a child growing up in rural New Jersey, Alexis was a prolific young artist, writing books, drawing, painting and print-making. At the age of 18, Alexis moved to New York City, where she worked as a hairdresser and pursued art-making. Over the years, Alexis has taken studied many mediums, book binding, paper making, color theory, encaustic painting, ceramics, photography, sewing and music, always keeping a personal studio to make art.

She makes her life about art, and the artistic process in a bid to infuse her own creativity with inspiration, so that she might have the utmost authentic expression in her own artwork. It is in observation, collaboration and conversation with nature and other artists that Alexis is most inspired.

For the past 10 years, Alexis has owned her own salon, Crown, in New York City, where hair is her way of working in sculpture. Similar to her visual artwork, she uses a combination of texture, intuition, artistic technique, and connection to create looks for her clients. Owning Crown has also created a space that Alexis can show and sell her finished work.

Gerald Cannon

Gerald Cannon

Born in Racine, Wisconsin, Gerald’s initial inspiration was his father Benjamin, a guitarist, who bought him his first electric bass at the ripe young age of 10. He began playing bass in his father’s group ‘The Gospel Expressions' and he never looked back. Gerald attended The University of Wisconsin at La Crosse where he met jazz great Milt Hinton. This meeting not only changed Gerald’s major in college from physical education to music, it also changed the rest of his life.

But Gerald’s creativity and passion is expressed not only in his music, but also in his painting. He recently had his first art showing in New York City and hosts exclusive viewings for interested art enthusiasts. A US tour of his paintings paired with musical selections will begin in 2016 and his highly anticipated sophomore album is underway with plans to release later next year.

Like the masters before him, Gerald Cannon has established a fearless, solid groove that distinguishes him as a principal figure in jazz. He will go down in history as a signature jazz bassist and composer of this century.
