FREEHOLD ART EXCHANGE FOUNDERS
PIPER DORRANCE Piper is a nurse, craftsman, arts facilitator and fledgling sustainability advocate. Currently working at St. Peter’s Hospital in Albany, NY, she spends her free days at FAEx, working on barn renovation, gardening and forest maintenance. She received a BA from Vassar College in Art History and Chemistry, including an art conservation internship at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. Piper has a background in computer and stopmotion animation, fiber arts, woodworking, pottery, music, painting, and drawing. Her current focus is human health and wellness, which has allowed her to buy the facilities for FAEx. Motivated by her experiences with communal living, she is excited to live in a place where people gather to focus on their own art and collaborate on various projects.
MOLLY STINCHFIELD Molly is an artist, activist and community arts organizer. She received her BFA from SUNY Purchase and her MFA from California Institute of the Arts. She has received grants and scholarships from CalArts, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Manhattan Graphics Center, and Richard and Dolly Maas. Her work has been exhibited across the country in venues such as Roy and Edna CalArts Theater (REDCAT), A.I.R. Gallery, Accola Griefen Gallery, West Wave Festival and IMPACT Festival. Art Voices, Z!NK, Whitehot Magazine, Title, Exit 168 and other publications have featured her writing and images. Molly’s multimedia artwork investigates trauma and healing, the body as a symbol for power imbalances and how social categories can lead to discrimination and injury.
