Randall Scott, owner of the contemporary fine art gallery RandallScottProjects which recently relocated from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, has been involved in contemporary art for more than 20 years. Scott's first gallery TBA opened in 1990 in Los Angeles. What began as a temporary space ran for several years before Scott moved to Eastern Europe to work as an art director in Kiev, Ukraine.  While there, he began to moonlight as a freelance photojournalist, something he does till this day.  In 2006, Scott reopened the gallery in Washington, D.C. and has since moved it to New York and back again. During these travels, Scott has produced some 70 exhibitions, exhibited in too many art fairs and helped start the careers of many artists. RandallScottProjects continues its focus on emerging and mid-career international artists.

Karyn Miller is the Director of Exhibitions at Arlington Art Center, where she curates and coordinates exhibitions and develops creative, collaborative initiatives.  Before AAC, Miller served as gallery director for five years at Conner Contemporary before moving to CulturalDC's Flashpoint Gallery, where she devoted over six years to collaborating with artists and leading their visual arts program.  She led several off-site public art projects at CulturalDC including Construct, a series of art installations in vacant retail spaces; Sweet, a public art project with artist Nekisha Durrett, and CONNECT 4, a series of installations at Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library. Karyn Miller has served on panels and lectured at a variety of institutions in the region and has curated and juried exhibitions at Civilian Art Projects, Orlando Museum of Art, Gettysburg College, Catholic University and Maryland Institute College of Art.
